EDITORS’ NOTES

Under the supervision of Jimi Hendrix's sister Janie Hendrix and his producer/engineer Eddie Kramer, 2013's People, Hell and Angels collects 1968 and 1969 recordings that showcase what Hendrix was doing post–Electric Ladyland. Most of the recordings here haven't surfaced in these forms on bootlegs, and the quality is consistently high. "Hear My Train A-Comin'" and Elmore James' "Bleeding Heart" have previously been available, but never in this naked presentation from the first studio session with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles (who formed Hendrix's Band of Gypsies). Hendrix had Stephen Still overdub the bass for "Somewhere" at a time when original bassist Noel Redding was on the outs. Saxophonist and singer Lonnie Youngblood leads the furious funk of "Let Me Move You." The instrumental "Inside Out," with original Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell on drums, feels like a variation on "Purple Haze" and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)." "Easy Blues" adds rhythm guitarist Larry Lee and percussionists Jerry Velez and Juma Sultan to the Hendrix/Cox/Mitchell trio.
