Hendrix under the hammer

Acoustic demo tapes of Jimi Hendrix playing tracks from his classic album Electric Ladyland are to go under the hammer next month, a tape which have only made it into the public domain because Hendrix gave it away in exchange for milk and sugar. That's some sound business you did there Mr Guitar God.

The lucky owners – Mark Sutherland and Paul Jackson, owners of Cafe Music Studios in London – are looking at a windfall between £50,000-£100,000 for the recordings, which date from 1968 and are on a tape 1,800ft long. So plenty of material then.
