Olmstead Studios, New York Studio Recording 1)Midnight 2)Trash Man Takes of the extended instrumental workouts “Midnight” and “Trash Man” were the most promising songs to emerge from these early April 1969 Olmstead sessions. “Midnight” had begun to take form two months earlier at the February 1969 sessions at Olympic Studios. The song was originally titled “Midnight Lightning” before Jimi shortened it simply to “Midnight”. “Midnight” is now available as part of the 1998 album South Saturn Delta. A heavily truncated version of “Trash Man”, filled out with posthumously recorded overdubs, was issued part of the controversial [and long since deleted] 1975 album Midnight Lightning.

Record Plant Studios, New York Studio Recording 1) Stone Free 2) Hear My Train A Comin’ 3) Lullaby For The Summer Jimi revisited “Stone Free”, his first ever Experience composition. This new rendition showcased a more sophisticated arrangement than that of the November 1966 recording which had served as the b-side for “Hey Joe”. Pleased with the group’s progress, Hendrix recorded lead guitar and vocal overdubs during two subsequent sessions on April 9 and 14. While not released during Jimi’s lifetime, this version of “Stone Free” was issued as part of the Jimi Hendrix Experience box set. Work was also completed on “Hear My Train A Comin” although no final masters were achieved. Jimi also attempted to further develop “Lullaby For The Summer”, which would later evolve as “Ezy Ryder”.
