Jimi Hendrix fans, rejoice: An album of previously unreleased studio recordings by the guitar virtuoso will be released in March. Valleys of Neptune, which arrives on March 9, includes recordings with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup, primarily from 1969 sessions. The album’s title track will be released as a single on February 2, beginning a retrospective of Hendrix’s work that commemorates the 40th anniversary of his death on September 18, 1970.

As Mr. McDermott says, Jimi just left this whole, completed stuff. Apparently nobody noticed it (while scavenging for studio scraps to record bass/drums over in order to obtain Hendrix music).

Just how did this remain hidden for 40 years -- when obviously every river has been dredged, every sewer has been drained, and every mountain has been climbed, and at least here in the U.S. the depths of every body-cavity of even the most faintly suspicious person has been plumbed -- all in search of new Hendrix recordings?

I'm looking forward to hearing it, but it smells like something, and not teen spirit.

Can you tell me where we're headin'?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon.

...any material from bygone heros is cool as long as they are not rehashed compilations trying to rake in more bucks....Beatles and Floyd spring to mind

It could have been legal problems, family claiming ownership of the demos, the studio, etc slowing down the release. I wouldn't know if it could delay something for so long, but at least fans will have something to look forward too.

This looks like a good one, thanks to Expeience Hendrix, Jimi's posthumous 'career' is back on track. All the right people are involved, Kramer, Cox etc and no sign of Alan Douglas.

For those who are wondering where the material keeps coming from, Hendrix lead lengthy recording sessions at various studios almost every night for most of his adult life, there is still tons of material out there.

I was slightly disappointed that most of the 'new' material was blues, I'd love to hear some more of his fusion work with McLaughlin, Larry Young etc, but if Experience Hendrix can bring in more money for his family and friends ... good!

Well I'm pretty skeptical, but if there actually is fresh stuff out there, bring it on.

I've got the posthumous First Rays of the New Rising Sun and it's fairly decent.  I get the feeling if he hadn't croaked he might have gone in a more proggy direction.

Hendrix jammed with Miles Davis and I don't know what ever became of that. From our track record of Hendrix releases in the last 3 decades, you would think that someone has a tape of this. There are lots of recordings from the Alan Douglas days that haven't been re-released by the estate. They are mostly deleted and expensive.

I think Hendrix was scheduled to jam with Miles but it was cancelled due to Miles demanding too much money. If it had happened I 'm sure Alan Douglas would have put it on Nine to the Universe which was Jimi's 'Jazz' album.

It is encouraging that Kramer is involved.  Hey, I'll give the Estate one more chance to get it right.  Even some of the marginal old releases (Loose Ends comes to mind) -- provided Alan Douglas was not involved -- have a fair share of decent music.

I have a random vinyl of Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison doing songs together. They sound totally wasted beyond comprehension, but it's still good.

I always loved the recordings of Hendrix with Traffic... the estate needs to officially release that haha.

So the album released by Obituary in 1997 was premonitory ?

Once your dead,,,,, you got it made for life..........

                                                                   I believe Hendrix himself said that.

The Albert Hall was one of jimi's best gigs but it wasn't his 'last' good one. He did many great gigs in 1970 including one in Copenhagen two weeks before his death.

Oh yes, I meant the film should be released because It was the last of the Experience line up.
.I agree there were many fab shows..I have most of them..But  not enough film of those days is available.. 
So this release would be superb..We live in hope.Big smile

Well in retrospect it's better to keep releasing Hendrix recordings than to have anymore music from Britney Spears,the Jonas Bros, and or Hanna Montana.

After 40 years, a number of ill-conceived posthumous albums, and countless bootlegs, one would almost have to be skeptical of a new album billed as “12 previously unreleased studio recordings — almost 60 minutes of unheard Jimi Hendrix!” The good news is that Valleys of Neptune largely delivers on that promise.

That's a very good (if unfinished) song! I was pleasantly surprised. It may have been a classic if finished (the ending sounds like he was gonna lead to a powerful guitar solo but instead was forcefully faded out)

I picked up the CD today.  $11.99.  Which I guess works out to about the high end of $0.99 per song.  I'll post a review shortly.

I was listening to the last few songs on the Woodstock concert and there's a bit where he tells the band  something along the lines of "Let's do Valleys of Neptune. Actually no, I forgot the words."

I've heard "Stone Free", "Hear My Train a Comin'", "Red House", "Sunshine of your Love" & "Fire" before. But not in the versions included on the album probably.
I might aswell get it as i'm in a bit of a hendrix-mood at the momentApprove

A posthumous album FORTY YEARS after the death of the artist. Take that, 2Pac.
