View Full Version : New Jimi Hendrix Album is Awesome

A new album of previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix songs was released this week called "People, Hell and Angels" and it is fantastic. If you are a fan, you need to listen to this. If you have Spotify, the entire album is available.

A little info: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/music/2013/03/03/new-jimi-hendrix-album-people-hell-angels-janie/1942117/

What makes this album intriguing is that it captures Hendrix — who liked to roll tape whenever he was noodling around — in an exploratory mood. Recorded in 1968 and '69 by engineer Eddie Kramer, the songs feature Hendrix as he was pushing beyond his collaboration with Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, his British bass-and-drum cohorts in the seminal Jimi Hendrix Experience

Here is one of the tracks that was leaked early (for some reason the "insert video" option doesn't show in this forum):

They had been sneaking a few out on the radio over the past month and all the tracks I heard were fantastic.
(Amid rumours that some tracks weren't him!?!)

I'm liking Bowies new album too!

There is at least one where he isn't doing the vocals but is playing the guitar. Great album.
