(Newser) – More than four decades after Jimi Hendrix's 1970 death, the guitar icon is releasing a new album tomorrow. People, Hell & Angels includes 12 previously unreleased tracks the rocker completed in the studio between 1968 and 1970, the Raw Story reports. The recordings "encompass a variety of unique sounds and styles incorporating many of the elements—horns, keyboards, percussion, and second guitar—Jimi wanted to incorporate within his new music," according to a statement on his website. "People, Hell & Angels presents some of the finest Jimi Hendrix guitar work ever issued."

One of the greatest. Think how good he could have been if he hadn't been on acid 24/7.

Very POOR loose jams on this CD, that is INTENTIONAL. The hype on this "release" all across the internet is ARTIFICIAL. The handful of moguls who orchestrated this are INTENT on drawing attention to POOR Hendrix jam music to CAUSE the public to conclude Jimi is "OVERRATED" - the point is to dwindle and diminish the influence of Hendrix. What are they doing this for? This is ALL ABOUT rockprophecy com - the Hendrix asteroid prediction which is now manifesting. NOTE: The day they released the single song from this CD is the day Russia was hit by asteroid, VALENTINE'S DAY. Also it's when Asteroid DA14 passed - on VALENTINES DAY because Jimi named the asteroid storm coming at us "ELECTRIC LOVE" - so the asteroids appeared on Valentines Day = LOVE. The BRIGHTEST COMET ever seen will arrive CLOSEST to Earth on JIMI'S BIRTHDAY this year - Comet Ison. All the details of Jimi's prediction are at rockprophecy com THAT story is WHY the moguls are DESTROYING interest in Jimi with this hideously bad CD for PEOPLE from HELL - the ANGELS will punish us all with ROCKS Jimi predicted - that's why he was the FIRST to be called "ROCK STAR" as in ASTEROID COMET. It was subliminal recognition by our species of Hendrix as mutation sensing remote view of objects in deep space. As he sang: "Electric Love penetrates the sky, the Mountain falls in the sea, the Sun refuses to shine..." Jimi See today's news - THREE new comets are on the way...with more asteroids to come. Prophet Jimi...rockprophecy com
