Curtis Knight and the Squires, featuring Jimi Hendrix.

Shortly before he was discovered by Animals bassist Chas Chandler and lit a fuse under the international music scene with the Experience, Jimi Hendrix was more of a jobbing musician.

During the mid 60s he played with the likes of Little Richard and the Isley Brothers and managed to get himself into a laughably bad contract with notorious label boss Ed Chalpin while playing with Curtis Knight & the Squires.

While in that band he recorded a track called “Station Break”, which has just surfaced online after 50 years and sees him sticking to a more restrained style that hints at his signature sound of the late 60s – while wearing a pretty special jacket.

The recording, which has been acquired by Experience Hendrix and restored by Eddie Kramer, features on a new album of tracks from that era, You Can’t Use My Name: Curtis Knight & The Squires (Featuring Jimi Hendrix), which is out on March 24.
