Jimi Hendrix

Experience Hendrix LLC and Sony Commercial Music Group proudly announce the release of “People, Hell & Angels”, an essential new album premiering twelve previously unreleased studio recordings completed by guitarist Jimi Hendrix.

“People, Hell & Angels” will be released in two phases: digitally on 4 March 2013 and as part of the ‘Classic Rock Presents… Fanpack’, and as a physical release on 1 April 2013.

“People, Hell & Angels” showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles. Outside the view of a massive audience that had established the Experience as rock’s largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums in the US Top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements—horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar—Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. “People, Hell & Angels” presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and producer.

With an album title coined by Jimi Hendrix, “People, Hell & Angels” reveals some of Hendrix’s post-Experience ambitions and directions as he worked with new musicians – including the Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, Billy Cox (with whom Hendrix had served in the 101st US Army Airborne and later played on the famed R&B ‘chitlin circuit’ together) and others – creating fresh and exciting sounds for the next chapter in his extraordinary career.

“People, Hell & Angels” is co-produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer and John McDermott. Kramer first met Hendrix at Olympic Studios in London in January 1967. Hendrix, who would have turned 70 on 27 November this year, developed a unique rapport with Kramer. As a result, Kramer engineered every album issued by the guitarist in his lifetime and recorded such famous Hendrix concerts as the Woodstock festival in August 1969. Since 1997, Kramer has teamed with Janie Hendrix and John McDermott to oversee the release of each Jimi Hendrix album issued by Experience Hendrix.

The dozen previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix performances premiering on “People, Hell & Angels” include Earth Blues, Somewhere, Hear My Train A Comin’, Bleeding Heart, Baby Let Me Move You, Izabella, Easy Blues, Crash Landing, Inside Out, Hey Gypsy Boy, Mojo Man and Villanova Junction Blues.

A musical companion piece and successor to 2010′s “Valleys Of Neptune”, the critically acclaimed album showcasing the artist’s final recordings with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, “People, Hell & Angels” offers tantalizing new clues as to the direction Hendrix was considering for “First Rays Of The New Rising Sun”, his planned double album sequel to 1968′s groundbreaking “Electric Ladyland”.

“People, Hell & Angels provides us with further insight into the genius of Jimi Hendrix”, said Adam Block, President, Legacy Recordings.  “Working with new rhythm sections and instrumentation, Jimi Hendrix was opening up the horizons of his music, creating new sounds filled with endless possibilities”.
