They say if you can remember the Sixties then you weren’t really there. That certainly seems to be the case for Crosby, Stills & Nash member Stephen Stills who’s just a found an album he recorded with Jimi Hendrix.

You’d think that you’d remember recording an album with one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century but not Stephen Stills. It’s not clear whether Stills – himself one of the key figures of the 60s and 70s thanks to his work with The Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young – found the album down the back of his sofa or not.

What is clear is that former bandmate Graham Nash is set to release the Stills-Hendrix album.

Speaking to the Las Vegas Sun, Manchester-born Nash said that his former bandmate had “…an enormous history of recording.”

“In the ’70s, he was a recording fool. He just found a bloody album he made with Jimi Hendrix,” he said.

“‘Oh yeah, I forgot that.’ We’ve got to listen to that… I want to listen to every track he ever recorded in case he recorded with Al Jolson.”

Perhaps Stills could apply the same level of archiving enjoyed by his erstwhile bandmate Neil Young. Young has been threatening to release a nine-CD box set of rare and unreleased material from the period 1963 – 1970. Like the Stills-Hendrix album, quite when this will see the light of day is anybody’s guess.
