Laughin’ they sayin’,
Those people so uptight, they sure know how to make a mess”….
You know it Jimi, I’m pretty sure you are right in thinking that those UFO’s would be pretty mystified looking down at us right now!
So here is today’s song, not exactly a mystery artist but the track, on the other hand, is relatively new and unknown, surfacing only a couple of years ago.
In March 2013, 12 previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix recordings from 1968/69 became available as a compilation, titled ‘People, Hell and Angels.’ This release was a collection of previously unreleased recordings of tracks Hendrix was working on for the planned double-album follow-up to Electric Ladyland, this was to be titled ‘First Rays of the New Rising Sun.’
Taken from these recordings is today’s epic track ‘Somewhere,’ which sees Hendrix collaborate with Buddy Miles on drums and Stephen Stills on bass for a momentous psychedelic blues jam. This new work hints upon the new and exploratory directions that Jimi Hendrix was working towards, with some suggesting that his most complex work may have only been ahead of him..unfortunately we will never know..
