People, Hell & Angels is an essential album premiering 12 previously unreleased
studio recordings by legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. And now it arrives on
Hybrid Stereo SACD, the first-ever Hendrix hi-res digital release!
The album peaked at No. 2 on Billboard's Top 200 album chart in March 2013
following its release.
People, Hell & Angels showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of the
original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio. Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew
restless, eager to develop new material with old friends and new ensembles.
Outside the view of a massive audience that had established the Experience as
rock's largest grossing concert act and simultaneously placed two of his albums
in the U.S. Top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft
his next musical statement.
These 12 recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles using many
of the elements Hendrix toys with horns, keyboards, percussion and second
guitar that Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. People, Hell &
Angels presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued and
provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician and
The tracks on People, Hell and Angels originally were planned to serve as a
follow-up to Hendrix's 1968 album Electric Ladyland. Hendrix died at 27 in 1970
before those plans were realized.
The dozen Jimi Hendrix performances premiering on People, Hell & Angels include
"Earth Blues," "Somewhere," "Hear My Train A Comin'," "Bleeding Heart," "Baby
Let Me Move You," "Izabella," "Easy Blues," "Crash Landing," "Inside Out," "Hey
Gypsy Boy," "Mojo Man" and "Villanova Junction Blues."
With an album title coined by 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.
"In 68 and 69, Jimi was in the studio constantly," recalls his former
sound manager, Eddie Kramer. "His whole life was in the studio."
Album producers Experience Hendrix LLC is led by the team of Janie Hendrix,
Eddie Kramer and John McDermott.
The track titled "Somewhere," featuring Stephen Stills and drummer Buddy Miles
displays a particularly bold usage of Hendrix's soulful guitar squall. "That's
a fantastic example of Jimi's amazing control of the wah-wah [pedal], the tone
of the wah-wah how that affects the whole song," Kramer tells Rolling Stone.
Lastly, as Rolling Stone notes, the album artwork is simple, yet as distinct as
Hendrix's signature guitar wails. Be experienced yet again.
