Unreleased Hendrix songs in new album
Previously unreleased, 12-song Jimi Hendrix album, ’People, Hell and Angels,’ will debut March 5.An album of 12 previously unreleased recordings by Jimi Hendrix is slated for a March 2013 release, British daily Telegraph reported yesterday.
People, Hell and Angels is comprised of music recorded in 1968 and 1969 by Hendrix as he worked on material apart from the Jimi Hendrix Experience.
The official Jimi Hendrix website reports that the album “suggests new, experimental directions” as Hendrix “toys with horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar, exploring fresh diversions from his legendary guitar work.”
It is the latest release since 2011’s Winterland, a live box set charting the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s six performances at the Winterland ballroom.
Hendrix’s 1969 Woodstock set will also receive a cinematic release next week in an event timed to mark the 70th anniversary of the guitarist’s birth.
The gig will be shown on Nov. 29 and Dec. 4 at more than 30 cinemas across the UK along with film Live at Woodstock,.
