Jimi Hendrix – New Album, March 2013
More than 42 years after his death, a new Jimi Hendrix album consisting of 12 previously unreleased songs, is set to be coming our way on 5th March 2013 (US. UK date not yet set). The album, titled People, Hell and Angels, is said to follow Hendrix in 1968 and 1969 as he works on separate material to the Jimmy Hendrix Experience and explores new, experimental directions involving horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar. His website also suggests that he explored ‘fresh diversions from his legendary guitar work’.
As we wait for the album release, we are to be gifted with the cinema release of the Hendrix performance at the 1969 Woodstock Festival, scheduled for release on 29th November. The feature is to celebrate what would be the musicians 70th birthday and includes performances of Voodoo Child, Fire, Purple Haze and a rendition of Star Spangled Banner.
