Vinyl Gang have remastered and reissued one of their earliest efforts.  Brian Jones He Is Not Dead (VGP-017) contains several interesting outtakes.  The first is “Little One” with Jimi Hendrix, recorded in February 1968.  Jones was thought to be playing the sitar, but in reality it’s Traffic’s Dave Mason.  Jones actually has nothing to do with this session. 

The second outtake is “Citadel” from the summer of 1967.  Jones’ participation in this session is also doubtful. 

The third tape is an audience recording from February 18th, 1966 in Sydney Australia.

    Funny old VGP! Out of all of their releases this is their most recent choice to remaster. The Citadel sessions featuring Keith, Nicky H., Charlie and perhaps Brian on mellotron are available elsewhere on Capricorn and Midnight Beat labels. Hopkins playing on Citadel is just amazing. Between takes one can hear him practicing just his part. Beautiful stuff. Lost in the “mud” of the official mix.
