Planned Release Date: Between Now and 2020
Reason It Was Shelved: In a strange series of events that have given Black Gold mythical standing, Jimi Hendrix gave his copy of the recordings to his drummer Mitch Mitchell. Shortly thereafter, Hendrix tragically died and Mitchell completely forgot about the tapes. Although they have now been located, they have yet to be released and only a handful of people have ever heard them.
Why We'd Kill To Hear It: Because it's Jimi fucking Hendrix, is that even a question? The contents of the tapes has been speculated over by Hendrix fanatics for years but no matter what's on there its got to be dope. Hendrix's sister, Janie, said in 2010 that the material would be released in the next decade so let's all just keep our fingers crossed.
