On March 5th, 12 previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix recordings from 1968 and 1969 will be available as People, Hell and Angels. Seattle’s most famous Son was tinkering with new sounds and musical directions for First Rays of the New Rising Sun, the planned double-album follow-up to Electric Ladyland. And on “Somewhere” according to Rolling Stone " Hendrix sits down with Buddy Miles on drums and Stephen Stills on bass for a far-reaching psychedelic blues jam. Recorded in 1968, "Somewhere" rides signature Hendrix wails, long exploratory solos and free-flowing wordplay. Rolling Stone's Greatest Guitarist of All Time shows why he's earned that title with unparalleled skill and eternally innovative sounds, but "Somewhere" suggests his most complex work may have only been ahead of him.
Listen here! But first pull on your “I Am Experienced” tshirt Rockaholics!
Help raise funds for the development of Jimi Hendrix Park in Seattle’s vibrant Central District.
