September 2011 will see the release of four expanded Jimi Hendrix releases, overseen by the Hendrix Family.
A four CD set comprising live recordings made at San Francisco’s Winterland and an expanded version of ‘Hendrix In The West’ will be issued on CD on September 13th, while expanded versions of Hendrix’s appearances on ‘The Dick Cavett Show’ and at The Isle of Wight festival will be released on DVD.
The new version of ‘Blue Wild Angel: Live at The Isle of Wight’ is expected to have a running time approximating 3 hours, which is a huge improvement on the currently available 60 minute version (first issued in 2002).
‘Hendrix In The West’, a compilation of live recordings made between 1969/70 – first issued in January 1972 – has been out of print in the US since 1974 and never available on CD in it’s original form in the US., although all tracks from the original LP were subsequently issued as part of the ‘Experience’ box set, first issued in September 2000. The new CD version of ‘Hendrix In The West’ will feature 3 previously unreleased cuts.
