The tape was sold at Christies fairly recently to an unknown buyer. We sit and wait for it to appear.

(2) - They were randomly done by someone with the foresight that history was being recorded. (3) - A combination of (1) & (2). My $0.02.

Keep in mind there are professional multitrack recordings that can be mixed (bring the drums up, vocals down, etc) and more crude SB's that are often just a copy of what is going out of the PA. There are quite a few professional multitrack recordings of Jimi shows but only a few SB's that have surfaced (San Fran '68, Newport, maybe a few others). Then there are shows that were broadcast on the radio (Stockholm '67, Paris '67 and '68).

Bob Dylan recorded a lot of his concerts from soundboard 65 -66 as well.
Then there was Cream there's a lot of their stuff from soundboard.
Etc etc
The idea would be to get a good live album. Which was supposedly mixed and delivered to Warners in 1969, but rejected in favour of the US Smash Hits release
