March 14, 2013, 4 years ago
JIMI HENDRIX' new archival album, People, Hell and Angels, has debuted at No. 2 on the US Billboard 200 chart selling 72,000 copies. It marks Hendrix' highest-charting album since 1968, when Electric Ladyland spent two weeks at No. 1. Hendrix most recently visited the top 10 of the chart when another from-the-vaults album, 2010's Valleys of Neptune, debuted and peaked at No. 4.
All 12 tracks on 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.
People, Hell & Angels features the following unearthed tracks:
'Hear My Train A Comin''
'Let Me Move You'
'Hey Gypsy Boy'
'Villanova Junction Blues'
