The Jimi Hendrix vaults are seemingly endless. Posthumous releases have flooded the market ever since the guitar legend died in 1970, and yet 41 years later amazing stuff continues to surface. This month the rarities collection Soul Southern Delta is hitting shelves, alongside a new DVD of Hendrix and the Band of Gypsy's Live At The Fillmore East. For Record Store Day tomorrow, Sony Legacy is releasing a vinyl single containing an alternate version of "Fire" with the previously unreleased 1967 song "Touch You." The CD version will have another 1967 track, "Cat Talking to Me" – which you can exclusively stream here. The Jimi Hendrix Experience cut the song in June of '67 at London's Olympic Studios. Twenty years later Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell added additional bass and drum parts.
