Hybrid SACDs remasters of Are You Experienced and Axis Bold As Love:
Last year, Acoustic Sounds announced their delivery of new Bernie Grundman SACD hybrid remasters of the US version of
Are You Experienced and Axis Bold As Love for 2018 (mono and stereo!) and they are scheduled to appear late summer.
It's not clear yet but it appears that the mono versions might only be on the SACD layers of the discs (bummer).
Re-released April 2018 on Sony Legacy)
The Live At Monterey DVD came out in 2007 on Universal and in October 2017 Sony released it on their own label.
This version is identical to the Universal edition but has a thinner case.

The Hendrix/ Zappa Tape?
There are apparently two tapes in the hand's of the Zappa Family trust which feature Jimi jamming with Frank.
One tape is from a jam at the Garrick Theatre in 1967 and the other from a jam in Zappa's basement studio.
The Zappa estate own the tapes and have expressed interest in releasing the studio jam.
This hit the press a couple of years ago but nothing has been heard about it since.
Hey Dweezil, any news?
The Zappa Hendrix Strat is the Astoria Strat
New research by yours truly!
The Hendrix/Jagger Tape?
On November 27th 1969, after dropping by to see The Rolling Stones at Madison Square Gardens, a party was thrown for Jimi at TV presenter Flip Wilson's apartment in the Hotel Navarro. After the party Jimi and Mick Jagger went round to the home of Deering Howe. They got the guitars out and with Howe on harmonica, the three of them played tracks from The Stones new album "Let It Bleed"! A proto "Dolly Dagger" was also captured on the tape machine which recorded the whole thing. The tape remains in the possession of Mr. Howe who promised to Mick that that was where it would remain (unfortunately for us).
Many thanks to Yazid Manou for bringing this information to us.
A very nice luxury book all about The Experience's farewell tour in 1969, centering on the Royal Albert Hall performances.
