One that isn't official, but still deserves a mention, is a rare Hendrix song I heard in a 4 disc box set featuring rare outtakes from Jimi while he was with the Experience. One of the outtakes is a 7 minute instrumental version of Bold As Love, which I now prefer over Jimi's original version of Bold As Love, and in the process has become one of my favorite songs by Jimi. A must hear for fellow Hendrix obsessives!
