Acoustic Versions of Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland Up for Grabs

(MusicRadar) A quarter-inch tape of Jimi Hendrix acoustic demos is to be auction in April. The 14 songs of Jimi and a single acoustic guitar are demos that Hendrix made in 1968 in advance of recording his third album, Electric Ladyland. A few tracks include an unknown second musician playing harmonica.

One of the tracks is a demo of the Bob Dylan song Tears Of Rage, which did not feature on Electric Ladyland. Instead, Hendrix covered Dylan's All Along The Watchtower.

"This tape shows his very sensitive, creative side," says Ted Owen, the CEO of rock memorabilia site Fame Bureau, which will auction the tapes. "The wild man of rock is not there at all." - more on this story
