The latest Jimi Hendrix vault release a success!

The latest Jimi Hendrix vault release, People, Hell And Angels, debuted this week at Number Two on the Billboard 200 album charts. The top honors went to country star Luke Bryan‘s new album, Spring Break. . . Here To Party. The material on People, Hell And Angels, which was recorded in 1968 and 1969, is yet another dip into the sessions for Hendrix’s infamous unfinished fourth album, First Rays Of The New Rising Sun. Hendrix would have turned 70 last November 27th.

The dozen previously unreleased Hendrix performances premiering on People, Hell And 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.”

Jimi Hendrix’s producer Eddie Kramer, whose relationship with Hendrix
