Win Four Awesome New Jimi Hendrix Releases



This week a fantastic brand new set of JIMI HENDRIX releases are unleashed on the world, marking a monumental day for fans and collectors alike as a huge pile of previously unreleased material becomes available.

Perhaps the one that will have most fans salivating is the WINTERLAND box set, which pulls together a massive four discs of largely unreleased live material recorded in San Francisco at the height of Jimi's powers. This set is something of a holy grail for live Hendrix fans as it compiles performances from six legendary shows recorded in 1968 PLUS it includes an outstanding interview with the man himself.

The other Hendrix releases are:
  • HENDRIX IN THE WEST - a long lost fan favourite, last officially released in 1974
  • BLUE WILD ANGEL: JIMI HENDRIX AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT - the definitive Hendrix live film, recorded at his last UK gig in 1970 and released UNCUT for the first time.
  • JIMI HENDRIX: THE DICK CAVETT SHOW - a new live film featuring all of Hendrix's performances from the Dick Cavett Show and previously unreleased interviews.
We will be giving away copies of all four releases each day from Monday to Friday this week, and if you want to find out more about the competition then click on the link below:


We also have all the information you need about all four Hendrix releases below:



Winterland is released as a 4 Disc Deluxe Box Set or 8 12" 180 gram Vinyl Audiophile LP Deluxe Box Set or 1 CD Winterland "Highlights. It is is drawn from six shows recorded over three days (10, 11 & 12 October 1968) at San Francisco's historic Winterland Ballroom. These performances celebrated the two year anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and came just as the groundbreaking album Electric Ladyland was released.

This special deluxe box set features never before released music from each of the six unforgettable Winterland performances. The new standard and deluxe editions of Winterland are markedly different from a single disc compilation, long out of print, that was briefly issued by Rykodisc in 1987 and 1988.

The deluxe edition also presents a rare interview with Hendrix recorded backstage at the Boston Garden a few weeks after the Winterland performances. This previously unreleased bonus provides fans with a window into Hendrix's views about his background, his approach to the guitar and songwriting and future direction of his music.

The deluxe edition also features a 36 page booked filled with previously unpublished images by acclaimed photographers Robert Knight, Allen Tannenbaum and Jim Marshall as well as an essay by noted Rolling Stone journalist David Fricke.
