It will also sell limited edition merchandise, including clothing, art, lyrics/chord books and guitar accessories.

Jimi Hendrix ‘wanted to put back the old team’ before he died, says Eddie Kramer

Jimi Hendrix was keen to work with manager Chas Chandler and get back to more structured recording shortly before he died, Eddie Kramer has told Uncut. The engineer, who looks after Hendrix’s legacy as part of the Experience Hendrix organisation, says: “Before Jimi died, in 1970, he sought Chas’ counsel. I think he wanted to put back the old team. “He’d learned from the experimentation and realised he needed Chas – but he had to come to that realisation himself.”
