Listen to a previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix track ‘Earth Blues’
Song is taken from a new album of studio recordings ‘People, Hell & Angels’
A new album of previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix recordings is set for release on March 4 – and you can listen to the track ‘Earth Blues’ exclusively below.
All 12 tracks on the album, titled ‘People, Hell & Angels’ were recorded between 1968 and 1970 and were meant for ‘First Days Of The New Rising Sun’, the follow up to ‘Electric Ladyland’ that Hendrix was working on when he passed away in 1970. The album will be available digitally from March 5 and will also get a physical release on April 1.
The album saw Hendrix working with new musicians – including Buffalo Springfield’s Stephen Stills and drummer Buddy Miles amongst others. It was co-produced by Janie Hendrix, John McDermott and Eddie Kramer – who engineered every album issued by the guitarist in his lifetime and recorded numerous Hendrix concerts such as the now-legendary Woodstock festival in August 1969. Since 1997, Kramer has teamed with Janie Hendrix and John McDermott to oversee the re-release of each Jimi Hendrix album.
The full tracklisting for ‘People, Hell & Angels’ is:
‘Hear My Train A Comin”
‘Let Me Move You’
‘Hey Gypsy Boy’
‘Villanova Junction Blues’
Here are the two covers used for The Jimi Hendrix Experience album “Electric Ladyland“, although Jimi Hendrix himself did not want either one of these.
A letter Hendrix wrote to Reprise Records described exactly what he wanted for the cover, but it was mostly ignored. He expressly asked for a color photo by Linda Eastman (later Linda McCartney) of the group sitting with children on a sculpture from Alice in Wonderland in Central Park, NY, even drawing a picture of it for reference.
Reprise instead used a blurred red & yellow photo of his head, taken by Karl Ferris. Track Records had its own art department, which produced a cover depicting 19 nude women lounging in front of a black background. The original UK & German CD release from the 1980s features the UK artwork cover, while the Allan Douglas’ re-master CD issue features the U.S. version byFerris, which has since become the official worldwide cover of Electric Ladyland.
The company Experience Hendrix, which owns the rights to the album and most of Hendrix’s catalogue, has stated that the original UK nudes cover will not be used any longer, since Hendrixhimself did not like it; nonetheless Hendrix’s own choice, the Eastman photo, is still ignored.
A dispute nearly occured over the album’s title. In the final stages of production, a studio technician renamed the album “Electric Landlady“. The album was almost released under this official title until Hendrix noticed the error, which upset him considerably.
Valoro el intento del photoshop, los personajes que fallecieron a los 27 años están ahí. Morrison si era así en 1967.
Jim Morrison de los Doors estaba con Nico de los Velvet Underground e Los Angeles por esos días, Brian Jones, el creador de los Rolling stones, pasó por ella simplemente para pasar unos días e ir a Monterey Pop, Brian y Jim Morrsion tuvieron amantes en común .. Iggy Pop y Jimmy Page les hicieron un cariño, sin levantar polvo.de paso a ellas ..a lamodelo zoso de Francia o Lori Maddox o Nico ..
ES UN PHOTOSHOP y creo que se nota .en fin
Jim Morrison le robó o se inspiró en el look de cuero de Gerard Malanga de los Velvet Underground, él era el de látigo y amante de Nico también..
Jimi Hendrix era mega fanático de Bob Dylan, él donde viajaba llevaba unalibreta con las letras de Bob para tratar de poder escribir algo parecido, Jimi le decía a sus novias : No hay nadie que escriba como Dylan, nadie es simplemente un genio.
Jimi Hendrix era super fan de Bob, grabó cuatro temas de Dylan – Like A Rolling Stone, Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window, All Along the Watchtower and Drifters Escape.
Hendrix fue tan freak de Dylan que aceptó a Noel Reddingcomo bajista en su banda The Expirience ( Noel era guitarrista ojo y no bajista ) porque tenía el pelo como Dylan; en el Festival Monterey Pop de 67 lo presentó como La abuela de Bob Dylan.
Mira como Hendrix ya como estrella llevaba un pin de Bob en su chaqueta,

Jimi Hendrix, le contó a Rolling Stone magazine en una entrevista de November 15, 1969 :
“I love Dylan. I only met him once, about three years ago, back at the Kettle of Fish [a folk-rock era hangout] on MacDougal Street. That was before I went to England. I think both of us were pretty drunk at the time, so he probably doesn’t remember it.”
Hendrix que no tuvo una gran oprtunidad de educación opinaba lo siguiente de las letras de Dylan.
“All those people who don’t like Bob Dylan’s songs should read his lyrics. They are filled with the joys and sadness of life. I am as Dylan, none of us can sing normally. Sometimes, I play Dylan’s songs and they are so much like me that it seems to me that I wrote them. I have the feeling that Watchtower is a song I could have come up with, but I’m sure I would never have finished it. Thinking about Dylan, I often consider that I’d never be able to write the words he manages to come up with, but I’d like him to help me, because I have loads of songs I can’t finish. I just lay a few words on the paper, and I just can’t go forward. But now things are getting better, I’m a bit more self-confident.”
– Dylan cuando escucho la versión de Hendrix de su tema “All Along the Watchtower “…
Q: How did you feel when you first heard Jimi Hendrix’s version of “All Along the Watchtower.”?
A: It overwhelmed me, really. He had such a talent, he could find things inside a song and vigorously develop them. He found things that other people wouldn’t think of finding in there. He probably improved upon it by the spaces he was using. I took license with the song from his version, actually, and continue to do it to this day.”
Bob Dylan no tocó un muy buen tiempo su canción en vivo luego de escuchar la versión de Hendrix, es obvio que los dos se admiraban mucho.
