Stephen Stills: Hendrix Tapes Are Unusable

The duo's jam session recordings will be difficult to salvage

Speaking to Music Radar Stills has revealed that the near mythical recordings of the duo were probably going to be hard to salvage.

"Yeah, but I went through [the tape], and a lot of it is waiting for somebody to start something. It isn't really usable. It deteriorates into giggles and then the tape stops. I've been through it.

"There's a couple of things in there. Now that the family has worked their business out, I've done some of the things I did at Electric Lady with him. I've finished a couple of those. There's one song that's sitting there in want of a lyric - there's babbling but no good lyric."

He added "Buddy Miles was playing with us one time, and then Mitch was playing one time. There was a nonsensical bass part that I replaced, and I'm also playing rhythm guitar. I don't know, we could just take guitar and drum and start screaming."
