JIMI HENDRIX Set For Highest-Charting Album In 44 Years
March 9, 2013, 4 years ago
According to Billboard, JIMI HENDRIX' new archival album, People, Hell and Angels, is set to debut at No. 2 on next week's Billboard 200 chart, according to industry sources. The album might sell around 70,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on March 10. The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on the morning of March 13. If the title opens at No. 2, it will mark 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.
NPR is currently each track now at this location.
The full tracklisting for People, Hell & Angels is:
'Hear My Train A Comin''
'Let Me Move You'
'Hey Gypsy Boy'
'Villanova Junction Blues'
