Jimi Hendrix's 78th Birthday

A note about this week's podcast.
Track #4, the 2020 Birthday Jam, was created this week from the same two bootlegs that Alan Douglas used when he compiled "Captain Coconut" for the 1975 album, Crash Landing: "MLK" and "New Rising Sun".  We both chopped up the originals, but recombined them differently.  My version kept Buddy Miles and Billy Cox. 
(Hendrix improvised an original "MLK" at a memorial concert.  This isn't it.  It's been described as one of the most beautiful, heartfelt tunes he ever played.  No known recording.  Oh well.)
