Some 43 years after his tragic death, rock-n-roll legend Jimi Hendrix will return to relevance on Tuesday with the release of his new album People, Hell & Angels.

The album consists of 12 previously unreleased tracks Hendrix completed in the studio before his death in 1970, brought about by an overdose of sleeping pills

Amazing. Hundred of years from now the only musican they will remember from 20th/21 st century wil be Hendrix. He will have some reverence as Beethoven and Mozart.

Ok,

I don't know for sure but I'm a big Hendrix Fan and I have to say...this doesn't sound like Jimmy for a few small details.

Great recording...too great

Clean...too clean

Fantastic vocals...too fantastic. There are sustained vocals but Jimmy wasn't a fan of it.

I may be wrong but...is this really Hendrix?

And the guitar? Where is Jimmy? It's there but...Horns and vocals are over the top of everything. Jimmy was guitar and it was the predominant sound over everything. It was Hendrix . He wasn't a vocalist and he let the guitar speak for what he couldn't express.

I just don't see this as Jimmy Hendrix.

Thanks OP.


Peace

Because we don't remember any other artists from Beethoven's and Mozart's respective musical eras?

YEah that first video post is definitely not Hendrix, it's not his voice.

Also, he never made anything with that sort of vibe (James Brown like..) with horns.

Only some of the guitar parts sounded like him (and prob is not).

amazing things can be done with software these days BUT you'd still be able to tell the era of the original recording and your remarks is exactly what i thought as well, i'm not convinced this is really him at all.

the time period of these songs are around his height and these songs leave a lot to be desired.

This is a collection of origional recordings from 1968 til his death with other musicians than the experience.

Official Jimi website


With an album title coined by Jimi Hendrix, People, Hell & Angels, reveals some of Hendrix's post-Experience ambitions and directions as he worked with new musicians--including the Buffalo Springfield's Stephen Stills, drummer Buddy Miles, Billy Cox (with whom Hendrix had served in the 101st US Army Airborne and later played on the famed R & B 'chitlin circuit' together) and others--creating fresh and exciting sounds for the next chapter in his extraordinary career.


The video from the op was misleading as to the general sound of the Album.

Mojo Man: Jimi would lend a hand to Albert & Arthur Allen, the vocalists known as the Ghetto Fighters, whom he had befriended in Harlem long before he achieved fame with the Experience. When the two recorded this inspired, previously unreleased master at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama they took it back to Hendrix at Electric Lady Studios. Jimi knew just what to do to elevate the recording beyond contemporary R & B to the new hybrid of rock, rhythm and blues he was celebrated for.

This will be the single.


Somewhere: This newly discovered gem was recorded in March 1968 and features Buddy Miles on drums and Stephen Stills on bass. Entirely different from any previous version fans have ever heard.

Try these before they get taken down..


Inside Out: Jimi was fascinated by the rhythm pattern that would ultimately take form as "Ezy Ryder". Joined here by Mitch Mitchell, Jimi recorded all of the bass and guitar parts for this fascinating song--including a dramatic lead guitar part amplified through a Leslie organ speaker.



Villanova Junction Blues: Long before his famous performance of this song at Woodstock, Jimi recorded this studio version with Billy Cox and Buddy Miles at the same May 1969 session which yielded "Hear My Train A Comin'" and "Bleeding Heart" also featured on this album. Never fully finished, the song stands as an example of the fertile ideas he hoped to harness and bring to fruition.

All quotes from here Official Jimi website
The whole album is already on youtube.

Still not convinced.

Have you seen the movie "Eddie and the Cruisers 1&2?

Second movie is a previously unreleased album with many famous musicians titled "Seasons in Hell" (Hell and angels?) and everyone wanted it... especially the studios.

Sounds too familiar IMO.

But...I leave it open to my being wrong of course.

Peace

Of course you're wrong. This is seriously misplaced scepticism.

Eddie and the Cruisers 1&2? Please!

That's a cheap Springsteen / E-street rip off attempt with extra "Mystery" nonsense.

There are worlds of differences betweem Bo-Diddly and Jimi Hendrix.

This is actually a great collection of Jimi's collaborations with other musicians over the years of his fame.

He doesn't sing on every track, but his guitar wizzardry cannot be missed.

Take the song "hear my train a coming", where he does sing:

This is the same song from the last compilation in 2010 with the Experience:

This is the same song live in 1969:

...and if you're still not sure its Jimi, here's himself with an auld 12 string acoustic guitar playing the same song, just for you...


It may be a money making scheme for Jimi's Brother, but these are also good quality Hendrix recordings that have been excellently remastered. Not all "typical" Jimi, but definitley Jimi.

Album Description, song by song.

Peace

I really hope that is him, if so thats one of the best most crisp, quality solos Ive heard of him ever. Which unfortunately leads me to believe it might not be him, or why I would have any skepticism at all. there are points where it sounds like heavy metal fretboard tapping for like 20 or more seconds straight at a time, thats something ive never heard so crisp from hendrix and perfect, and im guessing because of the technology of the time. So I really hope they didnt get some hendrix impersonator or good guitar player to study him and play over unfinished tracks (lol...its ats man, gotta be a conspiracy)... if it is him.. all may continue hailing


On second listen im 95% sure the lead playing is him, and its not the best solo ive heard from him
... there is always that "first time you hear a song surprise" wowness that gets you excited to hear something new but yea.... still very awesome
