I just heard this on the radio tonight and also saw it on a guitar tab website. Supposedly Jimi Hendrix and Steven Stills recorded an album together and Stills "forgot about it" until he was going through a stack of tapes...man that must have been some good drugs. I hope this isn't like the rumor of the Hendrix sex tape...

How could you forget recording with Jimi Hendrix? Not to be a skeptic, but can this project be authenticated by anyone other than Steve Stills?

I may be mistaken, but reportably, Hendrix was drunk or high
on the song he played on that first album. It's an OK performance,
but I wouldn't say that's one of Jimi's highlights.

So an album full of stuff is probably jams, demos and general
fooling around. Or maybe not ...

lonomon, how dare you accuse Jim Hendrix of getting high....just kidding! Yeah, it sounds like this may just be some jams and doodling, but who knows? I bet those guys were so accustomed to playing with a buzz that it might not harm the music too much.

That's what I thought of too when I read this, & what makes me skeptical of the whole thing
Maybe it's outtakes or whatever from Stills's first album, which Jimi played on a cut of, Old Times Good Times -- maybe they did some other playing but as Rusty said, you wouldn't forget about recording with Jimi Hendrix...

Something that always stuck with me was an interview with Peter Tork. Peter was close with Stephen Stills from before either of them "made it" and Stills actually performed on a few Monkees tracks. (In fact allegedly Tork used to play in an early version of Buffalo Springfield). Anyway, so when Hendrix was briefly the opening act for the Monkees in '67. Stills was hanging back stage and Hendrix was jamming on acoustic guitars with Stephen Stills & Micky Dolenz. And Peter Tork just has it in his mind as such a surreal moment in rock history, Hendrix, Stills & Dolenz.

Based on what I have read I don't think Stills forgot he jammed with Hendrix but that the session(s) were recorded. And remember - it was the 60s.

Some of Hendrix best stuff is on his jam tapes - a few of which have been released. I am looking forward to this release. Hopefully - it is authentic.

This smells like hype to me.

Stills has spoken of the material he cut with Hendrix several times over the years since Jimi's death - a track called "White Nigger" (sorry, folks) is the only new song mentioned in the past, though it's also understood that Hendrix originally put a solo on Love The One You're With, before Stills replaced it with a steel drum part instead.

Don't get me wrong: I love Jimi and I think Stephen Stills was possiby the most creative musician on earth in '69/'70, but I think Stephen (with the help of his closest and most loyal friends) has engineered this publicity to an excessive level, to give his career a shot in the arm.

Of course, I could be wrong - time will tell...

P.S. A rough mix of the Hendrix/Stills' White Nigger can be found here,

That was a hot tune, Paul, thanks. Sure sounds like Stephen & Jimi to ME.

Nine To The Universe is an example of this -- this IMO is essential Hendrix -- not because it's awesome or great but because it's different -- just a relaxed jam session, and brilliant in its own way

A guy I used to trade tapes w/ had the most extensive Hendrix bootleg collection I'd ever seen. Happened to come across his old list recently, there are two listings of Hendrix w/ Stills:

Hendrix/Stills/Jack Bruce/Buddy Miles: Island Studios 3-70 (60m)

"Sunshine Boogie"
"Sunshine of Your Love" jams

Hendrix/Stills: No date/Venue listed (60m)

"Good Times"
"You Can Be Anyone This Time Around" (w/ Timothy Leary)
"Hendrix/Stills Jam"
"Woodstock" Inst.
"Woodstock" w/ vocals
