Jimi Hendrix?s Engineer Shares Track

Jimi Hendrix

Engineer Eddie Kramer has revealed audio from one of the songs appearing on the forthcoming Jimi Hendrix album, People, Hell and Angels. In a new video, the veteran Hendrix soundman discusses the making of “Somewhere,” a track Hendrix recorded with Stephen Stills on bass and Buddy Miles on drums. “He hadn’t worked with them before, but here he is establishing his independence by doing this track without Chas [Chandler], and it yields this track called ‘Somewhere’,” Kramer says. “It’s an amazing example of Jimi’s control of the wah wah, the tone of the wah wah, how that affects the whole song. It projects itself through the track.”

Kramer goes on to praise Hendrix’s vocals on the track. “Jimi’s vocal encapsulates this lovely softness in his voice,” he says. “It’s wonderful.” People, Hell & Angels gathers never-before-released tracks recorded in New York in 1968 and 1969. The album is scheduled for release on March 5.
