[Yet Another] Hendrix Box Set...

Wednesday, September 15, 2010| by Will Chen

Legacy Recordings and Experience Hendrix is planning the release of West Coast Seattle Boy - The Jimi Hendrix Anthology on Nov 16, 2010, a box set covering the guitarist's career from 1964-1970. The new set is promising rare and (somehow) previously unreleased Hendrix music on a five-disc (four CDs, one DVD) set. With the exception of the inclusion of Hendrix's early work as a side man for Isley Brothers and Little Richard, I'm not sure exactly what content of interest has yet to be released as the artist's posthumous catalog already includes 1994's Blues with 6 previously unreleased tracks, 1997's First Rays of the New Rising Sun containing much of the work from the unfinished Cry of Love album, the 4 disc The Jimi Hendrix Experience box set released in 2000, the most recent Valleys Of Neptune including the title track which was also part of Cry of Love, and numerous other titles listed here. For those interested, Amazon is already taking preorders...
