Album review: Jimi Hendrix, People, Hell and Angels Experience Hendrix (LLC/Sony)

 

The 2010 outtake collection Valleys of Neptune covered the final recordings of the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

People, Hell and Angels takes up the story from that point, collating fragments and works-in-progress from the immediate post-Experience era, including a lovely Band of Gypsys version of “Villanova Junction Blues”, and an impressive, wah-wah showcase “Somewhere”. Tracks such as the languid instrumental “Easy Blues” – which lives up to its name – and “Earth Blues”, a slippery sci-fi number, are worth the price of admission.
