Hendrix/Stills - what happened?
Following the release of the Stephen Stills box set "Carry On" which included a Hendrix/Stills "jam" (see
there seemed to be plans under way for a full album of material recorded by the two.
Let's just hope if the recordings do ever come out that there will be no modern day overdubs from Stills, like he did for the disappointing box set track.
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?

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).
