Classic Rock Magazine Presents Jimi Hendrix – ‘People, Hell and Angels’

12 Previously Unreleased Jimi Hendrix Tracks

Brand New Fanpack Album Released

4th March 2013

08/01/13 Classic Rock Magazine will be exclusively releasing Jimi Hendrix ‘People, Hell and Angels’, twelve previously unreleased studio recorded tracks from the ‘Jimi Hendrix Experience’ sessions.

Exclusively available from 4th March 2013 for four weeks as a Classic Rock Presents… Fanpack, it comes with a bespoke collectable 124-page magazine that plays as the ultimate sleevenotes to the album, the full recorded ‘People, Hell and Angels’ album and if you pre-order before 12pm (GMT) on Friday 1st February, you will also receive a free giant personalised poster featuring your name.

This special album showcases the legendary guitarist working outside of 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.

These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements – horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar – Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music. ‘People Hell & 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.

Chris Ingham, Publisher of Classic Rock, says: “Future’s Fanpack format has already proven to be a huge success as it creates a whole new retail environment to sell premium priced albums. Jimi Hendrix is one of the most important musicians in history so to be involved ‘People, Hell and Angels’ is an honour.”
