The Collector’s Pack features the brand new studio recorded album by Jimi Hendrix, plus a 116-page magazine that forms the ultimate sleevenotes to the record.
The album consists of 12 previously unreleased tracks recorded by Hendrix, showcasing the legendary guitarist working outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience trio.
People, Hell and Angels
Beginning in 1968, Jimi Hendrix grew restless. Despite the Experience being named as rock's largest grossing concert act, and two of his albums sitting in the US Top 10 sales chart, Hendrix was eager to develop new creative material.
"It's a really exciting and interesting album," says John McDermott, who co-produced the set with Eddie Kramer and Janie Hendrix. "The idea on Valleys Of Neptune was to show the end of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience, and with People, Hell And Angels, we moved the timeline up some. We looked at the remaining material, and the idea was to fill in the portrait as best we could."
The recordings on People, Hell And Angels feature the first-ever studio session by Band Of Gypsys, along with the group that Hendrix assembled for Woodstock, and it showcases collaborations with friends old and new. "He was widening the net," says McDermott. "Once the Experience were no longer going to be an effective recording unit, he got Billy Cox and Buddy Miles, as well as additional percussion and Larry Lee on additional guitar. And there's a track where his friend Stephen Stills plays bass. There's experimentation, but it's not in a loose, unformed way; Jimi was working with really compelling song structures, and he was playing great, too."
"What’s fascinating about Jimi is that one week of his felt like a year for other artists. There was so much creativity and so many possibilities. He was really looking to challenge himself. When he had an idea, he chased it fearlessly."
These twelve recordings encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the newer elements - horns, keyboards, percussion and second guitar - which Jimi wanted to incorporate within his music. People, Hell and Angels presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued, and provides a compelling window into his growth as a songwriter, musician, producer and phenomenal overall talent.
