This dead guy makes better music than a lot of alive guys

I've mentioned before that there's a "new" Jimi Hendrix album on the way: People Hell and Angels is 12 previously unreleased tracks that Jimi recorded during a very experimental period in 1968-69. On many of these tracks, there's more of an experimental vibe (more experimental that his regular stuff already was!) and as you'll hear, we get a tantalizing glimpse into the potential direction Hendrix might have headed if he'd stuck around. The latest song to leak from the new record is called "Earth Blues" -- big percussion, vocals right up front, and a sound as fresh as anything that's coming out in 2013.
