New Hendrix Album Out March 9th!!!!!

This is gonna be soooooo fricken' SWEET! Entitled "Valleys of Neptune", the album is said to establish a new "concept sound" and has been stored in a vault for the last 40 years. Remastered by the original iconic engineer Eddie Kramer; he spent a year remastering the old analog tapes, using state-of-the-art digital technology to clean up the sound. But not too clean: Kramer says he was trying to bring out the essence of Jimi Hendrix.

“This is Jimi, when he plays the guitar, and it jumps out of the track. The hair on the back of my neck just stands up,” he says. “It’s so raw and in your face.”

“He was the greatest guitarist I ever had the privilege of working with,” he says.
