It's on an official release, "Live at Winterland." It's not this exact version. The explicit "NEVER BEFORE RELEASED... EVER!" that flies around isn't wholly eppropriate.

Well, this isn't new to anyone, is it? After looking around, I found a 6-disc, 3-night boxed set from his Winterland shows. I just never look for these things.
It's a shame Rykodisc has this in and out of print, but I'm grateful to people who decide to sell them second-hand!

listen to what he left us...which finishes with Electric Ladyland the last release he actually oversaw...everything else since then is just bs, what some old hippy reckons he might have done. If it was released in his lifetime then he OK'd it. I trust him, not some bloke who may have been standing in the back of a hall or a studio who knew some other bloke who once went to a party on the Kings Road with Noel Redding.

True enough. However, I'll put out the argument that in the case of previously unreleased tracks, IE, the master tapes, not every band member has the ear an engineer will. It's like the band/engineer remaster coin.

And they usually seem to add too much bass...

I thought that this was a studio version of this song. It has the same arrangement as the Winterland, but with Tax Free interjected in the middle and conga drums. Either way, it sounds great and it is exciting to get good, remixed and mastered tracks that don't sound like crappy bootlegs!

Yea this is the studio version of the song - which has never been released. The other versions are live.

That's correct, Joiner. We have the Lulu Show version, the Winterland version, the Sky High/Woke Up This Morning And Found Myself Dead version. This studio version's not been released. And that Winterland 6 CD Set is a bootleg.

The first half of "Valleys of Neptune" was originally on the "Lifelines" Box Set released 20 years ago. If you ask me, they're being a bit disingenuine about the "new" tracks; and it's funny how the two "bonus" cuts on the Target release come from the "Dagger Records" releases, which aren't supposed to be strictly "commercial quality"... They're slapping product together just like Alan Douglas was doing. What's next Janie? "Best of the Bootlegs?" *Sigh*

Apparently they are planning to release 'Black Gold' sometime...

Who's "they", Arkitekt? I highly doubt it.

There's sellers for Winterland here on Amazon, 3 Nights At Winterland (6-CD) BOX: currently one seller has it for $69.00, the others are a little more expensive. You can find it for a little less on E-Bay, but you'll buy it from a UK Seller who will charge you extra for postage to the U.S. It's a mixed bag: some portions of some shows were not recorded professionally, so the box compiler used audience tapes to keep the shows complete, if in a lesser quality. I have heard the audience tapes, they circulated pretty heavily in the late 80's about the time Ryko released the original single "Live At Winterland" CD, and they aren't terrible, so there you go. For under $12 a CD on a 6 CD Set that's all live Jimi, you can't go far wrong, can you?

Your doubts are probably justified as they tend to release products with what they deem commercial potential. But who knows even with the recent success of Valleys doing an acoustic set of rough tapes would take some courage. Hard core collectors aren't really the concern of record companies but there's no lack of fanbase for Hendrix even after 40 yrs...

Oh, I forgot the Royal Albert Hall performance of "Sunshine Of Your Love" on the "Experience" film soundtrack LP! I *knew* there was one more out there.
