West Coast Seattle Boy (1964/1970)
2.218. New Rising Sun
This much circulated instrumental features Jimi playing all instruments as he evokes the feel of his later composition "Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)". It was also on the Alan Douglas compilation "Voodoo Soup" in an edited form. It is charming but ambles on a little too long. It was only a personnal demo it must be remembered.
Capricorn Tape (1968/70)
6. New Rising Sun
Studio B, TTG Studios, 1441 N.McCadden Street, Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA
Wednesday 23 October 1968
Jimi - guitar, Jimi - drums
Engineer - Angel Balestier, Second engineer - Mark Kauffman
According to the "Voodoo Soup" liner notes by Michael Fairchild "the tape itself is a nine minute reel" recorded entirely by Jimi with him filling four of the tracks with drum overdubs.
Thus this version probably is the unedited complete take.
