Next wave of Jimi Hendrix reissues planned

By | Published on Tuesday 10 August 2010

The Hendrix Estate and Legacy Recordings have announced the second wave of Jimi Hendrix reissues this year. Fans can look forward to ‘Jimi Hendrix Experience: BBC Sessions’, ‘Jimi Hendrix: Blues’, ‘Live At Woodstock’, and the ‘Merry Christmas And A Happy New Year’ EP in October, plus a brand new four-disc compilation of demos, alternate takes and previously unreleased recordings called ‘West Coast Seattle Boy’.

The ‘Blues’ and ‘BBC Sessions’ albums will each come with extra DVD stuff that you’ll enjoy owning but probably never watch, and the Christmas EP, which features a medley of ‘Little Drummer Boy’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Auld Lang Syne’ plus Hendrix’s own ‘Three Little Bears’, will be released as a seven-inch picture disc as well as on CD.

Previous reissues have included Hendrix studio albums ‘Are You Experienced?’, ‘Axis: Bold As Love’ and ‘Electric Ladyland’, plus various compilations of live recordings and demos.
