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”.
