Unreleased Hendrix

A new unreleased album of Jimi Hendrix recordings has been launched in London today, ahead of the offical release on Monday. 'Valleys of Neptune' features 12 tracks that were recorded over four months in 1969 during the original Jimi Hendrix Experience’s final studio sessions.

The launch party also saw the unveiling of a video of Hendrix playing at a modern-day Glastonbury - created by combining archive footage of Hendrix with recent shots of the festival.It was created by documentary-maker Julien Temple and even features model Kate Moss apparently watching the rock legend from the side of the stage.

Valleys of Neptune is the latest in a long line of posthumous Hendrix releases, and there is still no shortage of “new” material, according to his estate. Last year, his sister Janie said there were enough unreleased recordings to keep fans happy for another decade. "Every 12 to 18 months we'll continue to have new releases and official bootlegs,” she said.

AMAZING! Can't wait to hear this. The song I have heard from this is really really good.
