Yesterday, we launched the Artist Rewind: Jimi Hendrix Channel, celebrating the release of a full album of new material, People, Hell & Angels with a compilation of classic hits. Hendrix had been working on the tracks for following what was to be his last album, Electric Ladyland, before his death in 1970.

The celebration of Jimi Hendrix has been continuous throughout the decades as musicologists have explored the themes, ties and evolution of his songs. Today’s video round-up features some fascinating “behind the scenes” analyses by audio engineer Eddie Kramer. Watch below and hear more in the channel on the Music Unlimited service.
