Book: Hendrix Played With Mansfield

A new book about Jimi Hendrix says that in his early days Hendrix performed gigs with Jayne Mansfield.

‘Black Gold: The Lost Archives of Jimi Hendrix’ by Steven Roby says that Hendrix played bass and lead for Mansfield in 1965 – one ballad and a bump and grind number. The songs were never released.

The two got together because they had the same manager. Mansfield did show up at one of Hendrix’s shows a few years later, but left with Englebert Humperdinck.
