Vinyl – -“People Hell & Angels” by Jimi Hendrix


The idea that this is a collection of 12 never-before released tracks by Jimi Hendrix is enough for most fans of the guitarist to want to purchase. Released in 2013, the recording showcases Hendrix at his best and is a must-have for any Hendrix or classic rock fan. In fact, it is perfect for audiences who think they have heard all that Hendrix has to offer. Yes, Hendrix’s catalog prior to this, and certainly his radio fare have all demonstrated what talent the late musician possessed. However, “People Hell & Angels” has a clearer sound. The instrumentation is crystal clear. Hearing the nuance, every bend of every note, is a fascinating thing for rock fans, especially those with an interest in Hendrix.

 While all 12 tracks are worth hearing over and over, “Earth Blues” with its growling groove, “Hear My Train A Comin’” and its raucous blues, and “Easy Blues” an instrumental with a surprising rock-blues groove, all show why this album is a must-purchase.

The songs’ lyrics also give a little bit more insight into Hendrix’s life. That plus the instrumentation make the songs on this album a delight to hear, almost 50 years after Hendrix’s death.
