Lot 825: DS, one page, 8 x 11, November 3, 1969. A typed receipt on Michael Jeffrey Management, Inc., letterhead. In full: "Received from G. Stickells, cash, from 'Are You Experienced' account, the sum of $3,500.00." In fine condition, with a horizontal fold passing through Hendrix's signature and expected document wear. Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Tracks. During this period Jimi was recording demos with with Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums—the Band of Gypsys—at Record Plant in New York, where Hendrix had recorded much of Electric Ladyland. They developed much of their repertoire through improvisational jamming during these sessions but never recorded final tracks at Record Plant. A fabulous document from shortly after Hendrix's performance at Woodstock, signed as he worked to advance his musical style with the Band of Gypsys.
