Jimi Hendrix's posthumous album to be released after 40 years

London, Mar 3 (ANI): More than 40 years after Jimi Hendrix's death, a new album of previously-unreleased material from the guitar virtuoso will be released on Tuesday.

The posthumous album follows the success of the rock guitar icon's new single 'Somewhere', which went to number one in the US Billboard Hot 100 Singles chart last month.

The material for the album has been plucked from a Hendrix musical vault that producers say has survived the test of time.

'People, Hell And Angels' is billed as a collection of 12 previously-unreleased studio performances by Hendrix, Sky News reported.

But fans note that some of the music has emerged in other forms since his death in London at the age of 27 from an accidental drug overdose.

The album arrives with the simultaneous release of newly-struck mono vinyl editions of early Hendrix classics 'Are You Experienced' and 'Axis: Bold As Love'.

The tracks on 'People, Hell and Angels' were planned as a follow-up to the influential guitar player's 1968 chart-topping album 'Electric Ladyland'.

Feeling constrained by the limitations of the Jimi Hendrix Experience trio (which included drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding), the guitarist had already started working with an eclectic group of musicians.

They included the Buffalo Springfield's Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood and bassist Billy Cox, with whom Hendrix had served in the US military.

The resulting sessions, culled from 1968 and 1969, form the basis of 'People, Hell And Angels', which is co-produced by Janie Hendrix, original engineer and mixer Eddie Kramer and long-time Hendrix historian John McDermott. (ANI)
