Jimi signs a contract that acknowledges the release of the rights to "Fire" to ALDIGG MUSIC.

Not sure date and place:

Warwick New York Hotel, 65 West 54th Street, New York City, NY, USA
Taped by Jimi on his Sony TC250 reel to reel deck over a reel
Jimi; Paul Caruso; Jimmy Mayes and others

The Scene, 301 West 46th Street, Manhattan, New York City, NY, USA
In addition to Hendrix and Morrison, Lester Chambers plays harmonica and likely supplies some vocals during this jam. Other players that night are believed to include members of the band Eire Apparent. Henry McCullough (Eire Apparent) says he was there. Many sources claim members of The McCoys also played, including guitarist Rick Derringer, bassist Randy Jo Hobbs, and drummer Warren 'Bugs' Pemberton. Buddy Miles is also thought to perform on some songs. As this was an informal jam and the known recording contains several cuts, almost anyone could have joined in so it's difficult to know for sure who played on which songs. Suffice it to say, it's likely more than one set of performers jammed with Hendrix that night.

Jimi records most of the jam on his Sony reel-to-reel deck from the mixing board. A copy of the 7-inch master tape ended up with guitarist Mick Cox of Eire Apparent, and the rest is. . .Sky High history! The same reel also contains a 30-minute performance of Eire Apparent at “The Scene,” recorded by Jimi prior to the aforementioned jam session this evening. [UV]
