JIMI HENDRIX 'NEW' ALBUM LAUNCH
-

Sony Music hosted a press launch for the new Jimi Hendrix album "Valleys Of Neptune" at the Red Room in London's Mayfair area on March 2nd, attended by Hendrix's longtime engineer/producer Eddie Kramer who worked on the album. The 12 previously unreleased studio tracks were recorded between 1967 and 1970 at Olympic Studios in London and the Record Plant in New York, although some will be already familiar to fans as live versions and bootlegs. The earliest track is "Mr. Bad Luck" (aka Look Over Yonder) recorded at Olympic in May 1967, while the last to be cut was the title track at the Record Plant in May 1970, and presumably left off the posthumous "Cry Of Love" as an artistic decision, despite some great playing by Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox (bass). The album also features an instrumental studio version of Cream's "Sunshine Of Your Love" as well as Elmore James's "Bleeding Heart" which is the track being serviced to radio. "Valleys Of Neptune" launches a year of activity to commemorate Hendrix's death 40 years ago on September 18th 1970, and will be followed by more re-masters; a new 'Best Of" anthology; a BBC TV documentary; and a likely Hendrix tribute night at the BBC Electric Proms at the Roundhouse in the autumn.
