People, Hell and Angels is a new record of twelve never before released Jimi Hendrix studio recordings. The special album showcases the legendary guitarist working outside 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 together in the US top 10 sales chart, Jimi was busy working behind the scenes to craft his next musical statement.
A musical companion piece and successor to 2010’s critically acclaimed Valleys Of Neptune, People, Hell and Angels offers tantalizing new clues as to the direction Hendrix was considering for First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, his planned double album sequel to 1968’s groundbreaking Electric Ladyland.
There twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many new elements - horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar - Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. People, Hell and 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 producer.
