Label to release Hendrix collection

Sony Music teams with Experience Hendrix for repertoire

In the first fresh release under its pact with Sony Music’s Legacy division, Experience Hendrix will issue a collection of previously unreleased music by Jimi Hendrix, “Valleys of Neptune,” on March 9.

Package collates the innovative guitarist’s studio work in New York and London from 1969, comprising final sessions by the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup (with bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell) and the musician’s first sessions employing bassist Billy Cox.

The 12-track compilation disc will include the title cut, which will be released as a single day-and-date with the album. Other newly unearthed cuts are the Hendrix originals “Ships Passing Through the Night” and “Lullaby for the Summer” and studio covers of Cream’s “Sunshine of Your Love” and Elmore James’ “Bleeding Heart.”

CD/DVD editions of the Hendrix catalog albums “Are You Experienced?,” “Axis: Bold as Love,” “Electric Ladyland” and “First Rays of the New Rising Sun” will also drop March 9. Also forthcoming are a re-release of the compilation “Smash Hits” and DVD and Blu-ray versions of “Live at Woodstock.”
