    Hendrix!

    [URL]http://beatcrave.com/2009-09-21/unreleased-jimi-hendrix-music-on-the-way/[/URL]

    [QUOTE]
    A new era of [URL="http://www.jimi-hendrix.com/"][B]Jimi Hendrix[/B][/URL] is upon us.
    In an interview with [URL="http://www.gibson.com/"]Gibson[/URL] about their new Jimi Hendrix-inspired guitar, Jimi’s sister Janie noted that there is still a decade’s worth of unreleased music and video to come from the legendary guitar player.
    [B]Janie Hendrix[/B], the president and CEO of Experience Hendrix and Authentic Hendrix, said she wants to release new material every 12 to 18 months for the next ten years.

    [INDENT]“We probably have another decade of music, including video. Every 12 to 18 months we’ll continue to have new releases and Dagger [Experience Hendrix's label for live recordings] official bootlegs,” she told Gibson.
    “Jimi was a workaholic. After Electric Lady studios was built he was able to record constantly for as many hours as he wanted to. It’s almost as if he knew he had only four years to accomplish everything that he did. We have an amazing amount of original masters, including a lot of material that hasn’t been previously released.”[/INDENT]The recent success of the [URL="http://beatcrave.com/2009-09-18/the-beatles-remastered-review-round-up/"]Beatles remasters[/URL], and all-around reintroduction of the iconic Fab Four into pop culture, is clearly going to stir various classic rock estates to start rummaging through their old boxes of tapes and reels.
    Said Janie Hendrix:
    [INDENT]Our goal is to make sure Jimi’s legacy stays intact and that his music is put out in an authentic way — not the way the old administration did it.
    We want fans to be able to hear his music in the best possible way. With technology as good as it is, we can bring Jimi’s music — we have hundreds of original masters — to people in a pure form using those masters.
    [/INDENT]Speaking of valuable tapes, Hendrix said her brother’s reels that feature his substantial collection of unreleased music are housed in temperature-controlled vaults at two separate locations in the US.
    [INDENT]“We have a set of everything in Los Angeles and a set in New York in the event of something catastrophic happening. We have duplicates of everything.”[/INDENT]Hendrix fans can also get pumped about new footage from Monterey Pop and the Royal Albert Hall. Hendrix said for the Royal Albert Hall film, several cameramen followed Jimi, Noel [Redding], and Mitch [Mitchell] around Europe for about a month.
    Looks like the Hendrix estate has a couple concerts and interviews equaling an hour-and-a-half program.
    More than enough for fans of a real guitar hero.

    wow, now this is something to look forward to :yes:

    I just finished reading the "Room full of mirrors" biography...there's a great story in there about Jimi and a bandmate walking into an English pub looking for a pint. The bar tender looks at Jimi, then the bandmate, and says "we dont serve your type in here" the two of them immediately become indignant and Jimi says "is it because I'm black?"

    The bartender dismissively tells him "I guess you didnt read the sign on the door"...the band mate walks away to the door as Jimi stands there stewing...until the bandmate comes back laughing and tells him "he thinks we're clowns. Literally"

    Turns out the circus was in town and the pub didnt want trouble making circus folks in the bar. Hence, "No clowns allowed" posted on the door.

    Of course Jimi and his Pal were dressed head to toe in their best psyschedeic get-ups!

    Funny sh*t.:yes:

    Not really.

    You of all people should be familiar with the alcoholic over-indulgences of transient circus folk.


    You prolly owe your very existence to a furtive tryst sloppily completed next to a dumpster.

    Not that there's anything [I][B]wrong[/B][/I] with that.

    God does not like Jimi Hendrix because Jimi was into the pot, pre-marital sex and did not represent America's moral character. I admonish everyone to think if Jesus would approve of listening to Mr. Hendrix.

    I'm on my way to hell, so f*ck it. Crank the Devil's tunage :rockon:

    I saw the "Hendrix Come to America" documentary on PBS about three weeks ago charting his career in England to the Monterey Pop festival- it was outstanding...

    And many out there (not me) would call you a fool for thinking Hendrix was anything but distortion and feedback. It's a two way street, my friend.

    I knew that the public demand would eventually drive an independent label to make these commercially available. The Zappa Family Trust is doing the same thing with all the shows FZ (another workaholic) recorded with the Mobile Recording truck (The Utility Muffin Research Kitchen, for fans of Muffin Man).

    I wish they would remaster "Cry of Love" (if they haven't already).

    Since when did Jimi use Gibson guitars?

    I imagine if he did it was a Flying V. Can't imagine him using anything else.

    When I read the thread title, I thought you guys were referring to the alleged Jimi Hendrix sex tape running its way through town.

    Borgo, everything's a two way street...but what Jimi did was undeniable, regardless of whether you enjoyed his music or not. He is a musical genius.

    "Distortion and feedback" (something I still don't understand technically) is only a change in sound; not in technique, creativity, music/songwriting, or skill. Anyway, that sound distortion also changed the landscape of music, eveno though most purists aren't fans of it.
