    Contradiction In Jimi's First Rays Tracklists

    I'm researching Jimi's First Rays Of The New Rising Sun tracklists and found a contradiction in one of the well known tracklists that have circulated, versus what appears to be the same one in a JimPress book.

    This is the widely circulated tracklist many of us are familiar with:

    ->Strate Ahead-> x [sic]

    1. Ezy Ryder x
    2. Room full of Mirrors x-
    3. Earth Blues - Today √
    4. Valleys of Neptune -
    5. Have you heard - √
    6. Cherokee Mist - instr.
    7. Freedom x √
    8. Steppin Stone √
    9. IZABella √
    10. Astroman x -

    * Page 2/3
    11. Drifters Escape
    12. Angel
    13. Burning Desire
    14. Nightbird Flying
    15. Electric Lady - Slow.
    16. Getting My Heart Back Together Again
    17. Lover Man
    18. Midnight Lightning
    19. Can I Whisper In Your Ear - slow
    20. Sending My Love - slow to medium
    21. This Little Boy
    22. Locomotion
    23. Dolly Dagger
    24. The New Rising Sun (Hey Baby)

    However, the Jimpress published "Jimi Hendrix: The Studio Log" lists the tracklist as this:

    Ezy Ryder
    Room full of Mirrors
    Earth Blues - Today
    Valleys of Neptune
    Cherokee Mist - instr.
    Freedom
    Steppin Stone
    IZABella
    Astroman
    Drifters Escape
    Angel
    Bleeding Heart
    Burning Desire
    Nightbird Flying
    Electric Lady - Slow.
    Getting My Heart Back Together Again
    Lover Man
    Midnight Lightning
    Heaven Has No Tomorrow - slow
    Sending My Love - slow to medium
    This Little Boy
    Locomotion
    Dolly Dagger
    The New Rising Sun (Hey Baby)

    Here's a link to a scan of this tracklist in their book:

    https://books.google.com/books?id=vH...page&q&f=false

    The differences I am concerned with are the omission of "Have you heard,"/Straight Ahead and the addition of "Bleeding Heart," in the Jimpress publication.

    Does anyone know the Jimpress team or subscribe to their publications?

    Have they updated this or commented on this difference?

    Is there an image of this actual tracklist somewhere? I've been unable to find it.

    Thanks,
    Chris Elliott
    I own every CD release Experience Hendrix has ever put out including singles, boxed sets, special editions, live performances, and Dagger releases. I love making my own contextual mixes such as First Rays mixes based on Jimi's hand written track-lists, and the one I'm currently working on, a compilation of all of the material Jimi and Stephen Stills put together.

    I have always wondered if "Electric Lady - slow" was Pali Gap. I have a hunch it is.

    Any guesses for "This Little Boy" or "Locomotion"?

    Wouldn't it be funny if "Locomotion" was the Carole King/Little Eva tune?

    My guess would be "Locomotion" is "Local Comotion," which is on Black Gold, and which has never been leaked or released.
