A reel-to-reel tape containing a never-before-released Jimi Hendrix studio track, "Station Break," will be auctioned Oct. 26 as part of the Ocean Tomo Fall 2006 Live Intellectual Property Auction in New York. The purchaser will also receive half ownership in the New York common law copyright and half the proceeds from any future licensing.

"Station Break" was recorded in 1966 at Allegro Sound Studios in New York during the same session that yielded such instrumentals as "No Such Animal," "I'm a Fool for You" and "Kato's Special." The tape was located in 1994 by Jerry Simon, who produced the session. Other master recordings from the session were offered for sale on eBay in 2005.
