Jimi Hendrix fans mark your calendars -- on March 5th 2013 a new Hendrix album titled "People, Hell and Angels" will be released in the US. In 1968 and 1969 (before his death in 1970) the iconic guitarist recorded the songs for a follow-up to "Electric Ladyland," and for decades they remained untouched and unreleased.

According to NME, "tracks on the record apparently feature Hendrix experimenting with horns, keyboards, percussion and a second guitar." Are you excited to hear "People, Hell and Angels", or will you stick with the Jimi tracks you know and love?

NME.COM reports:
'People, Hell And Angels' will feature previously unreleased recordings from 1968-69
nme reports people angels feature unreleased recordings 1968-69

    Love to hear it. I was fortunate enough to see him (up close) in May of '69. Wow!

    If the quality of the recordings is as poor as most of the previous posthumous releases of JH's music.

    Where do people find all this old stuff? And why has it been hidden so long? Or should I say anything for a buck.

    Sounds like another cash in...if Jimi did not release them in his lifetime... maybe, just maybe he did not want them released.... painters can destroy their drafts or finished works that disapoint them...musicians are faced with opportunists searching through the bins of their product to make an easy buck!

    Yes, I'm very interested in hearing his "new" music as a taste of what might have been had he survived. I will, of course, still listen to what we've heard already. I could have seen him at the Fillmore East at the New Year's Eve show when he recorded the Band of Gypsies album but, UNFORTUNATELY passed on it. Peace Jimi!

    I was there. His music was unreal when it hit. It was compelling, grabbing, it rocked your soul. You could feel his genius. It was papable and you just rocked with it. Even while driving/you need to listen if you haven't. It's on my to-get list.

    beetles you been drinking? Beatles... music has a life pulse going back to the dawn of time..Mozart, Chopin, Strauss, Coltrane, Bowie, Dylan, and so on and so forth... ignoring the musical heritage of the past is like being deaf or only having one ear... you are missing out on so much .. maybe you just like Justin Bieber? Don't worry ..you will grow up one day. (Hopefully)

    He's the guitar god. When you can put Slash's guitar skills to shame, that's how you know you're worth listening to.

    When Jimmy was alive many thought him a communist or worse. What he was was a Viet Nam veteran member of the 101st Airborne.

    Hendrix died in 1970. Not too sure how this album could be full of new music and since he won't be performing it himself in a recording studio this must be a bunch of old recordings cobbled together.
  • skoy rosebud 2012/11/27 12:17:42
    skoy
    It is music that he himself recorded in a studio but just hasn't been released before now.

    Hendrix is to rock what Miles Davis is to jazz, so I'm always interested in any new material that surfaces.

    A great musician. it will be interesting to see the direction he was taking. However, he is the past and we need to look to our younger musicians for freshness and exploration. There is too much copying and derivation music. Encourage the experimenters!!

    It's been more than thirty years since his tragic death in London, and Noel Redding, his
    bassist, and Mitch Mitchell, his drummer, have both since also passed along. It should
    be an interesting album to be released post humusly regarding that entire group.

    Although the Hendrix family has been pumping out product at a steady rate, at least it is from a guitar genius who was light years ahead of most. There is nobody like him today. Yeah, maybe some can outplay him technically, but overall nobody can touch him.

    Jimi Hendrix died well before his time and we didn't get the full benefit of his talent. At least we can have a little more of it now.

    He was half African American and half Native American (Sioux), from the NW of the US (Seattle, I think?), served as a paratrooper in Vietnam, started playing with Black R&B bands and later started his own Progressive Rock band in the 70s, discovered in the UK by a British producer (Chas someone?). Died early of either drug overdose or accidental electrocution while playing his guitar (who knows which story is true?). Had a unique style of playing, and very few people are even good enough to be able to play some of his tunes on guitar. Much better guitarist than Eric Clapton, for example. Some would say better than anyone who ever lived, although difficult to compare with Segovia, the classical guitarist. OTOH, not everything he recorded was a gem, and since his death probably more albums have been released than when he was alive, basically every time someone finds a tape that didn't become an album, it does! Some of them probably shouldn't be, but they are always interesting to his fans.

    If you haven't heard him, you may have heard covers of Angel, which is one of his tunes. Rod Stewart covered it long ago, but a woman singer (?) covered it quite recently.
