The first of an historic series of 7” singles featuring unique and hard-to-find vintage performances by Jimi Hendrix!
In an historic alliance, Sundazed Music has partnered with Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. to release an eye-popping series of new 7” picture-sleeve vinyl singles featuring unique and hard-to-find vintage performances by Jimi Hendrix.
The series launches in April with an initial release that combines a pair of historically significant Hendrix recordings from two different 1967 sessions. One is a raucous reading of Bob Dylan’s “Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?” from BBC Radio’s Rhythm and Blues show, the other a fascinating, newly discovered take of the Hendrix original “Burning of the Midnight Lamp,” as performed on BBC-TV’s Top of the Pops.
Both sides feature the classic original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup of Hendrix on guitar and vocals, Noel Redding on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums, and capture the band just as it was beginning to emerge as a major creative force on both sides of the Atlantic. As with every release in the series, it will feature a color picture sleeve incorporating rare vintage Hendrix photos that capture the legendary artist’s distinctive persona and pioneering spirit.
In a recording career that spanned only three and a half years prior to his tragic death in 1970 at the age of 27, Jimi Hendrix revolutionized the role of the electric guitar, and radically altered the face of contemporary music. He became rock’s first guitar superstar with an effortless charisma that matched his visionary talent to an intensely original performing style.
