Rolling Stone reports that the new Jimi Hendrix album will be released March 5, 2013. This news released on November 26, to commemorate what would have been Jimi Hendrix’s 70th birthday.

Eddie Kramer, Producer of the lost Jimi Hendrix album talks about his experience with Jimi making the album.


A variety of Jimi Hendrix songs, including some from

the tracklist and some personal favorites.

Hendrix wrote these songs for the album that was supposed to follow Electric Ladyland, titled “First Days Of The New Rising Sun”, however since we lost Jimi Hendrix to a court-ruled suicide, but likely murder, back in the 1970’s the songs were never released or finished.

Recorded in new York from ’68-’69, the songs are sure to be funky as hell. Hendrix decided that for his next album he was going to steer away from his classic, legendary style. In People, Hell and Angels Hendrix experiments incorporating new instruments such as horns, keys and even an additional guitarist for some tracks.

Additionally Eddie Kramer, who mastered all three of Hendrix’s full length album releases also helped Hendrix in the production of the songs on People, Hell and Angels. Hendrix also kept the familiar company of bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles alongside him for the recordings and brought an old friend to feature in one song. Larry Lee, a friend of Hendrix from their “Chitlin’ Circuit” days, is featured on guitar for the tracks “Izabella” and “Easy Blues”.

The legends performance at the 1969 Woodstock festival is being remastered and prepared for release. Scheduled for a cinematic release later this month, we can expect to have the film released on Blu Ray and DVD by the holidays or at the latest, early 2013. The release will feature interviews wil band mates such as Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, recalling memories of their own and Jimi’s. Screenings for the film are scheduled November 29 and December 4 in dozens of theaters across the UK and several world-wide. 

[blockquote]The brilliance of the album serves to underscore what we’ve known all along: that there has never been and never will be a musical force equal to his and that we cherish and take inspiration of what he left us both now and for many generations to come… simply eternity. – Janie Hendrix[/blockquote]
