Hendrix Deluxe Reissues On The Way In 2010

Sony Music Entertainment and Experience Hendrix L.L.C. have partnered in an arrangement that will result in a bevy of “deluxe” reissues of the legendary guitarist’s extensive catalog. Among the planned releases are expanded versions of 'Are You Experienced?', 'Axis: Bold As Love', 'Electric Ladyland', and (outside the US) 'Band of Gypsys'. A number of posthumous compilations, produced under the stewardship of Experience Hendrix, are slated for release as well.

"Jimi's legacy and vision were unique and there will never be another that reaches his unparalleled genius,” said Janie Hendrix, President and CEO of Experience Hendrix, in a statement. “He was the greatest guitarist ever. We are confident that our new relationship with Sony Music will honor my beloved brother's legacy and will deliver Jimi's special 'Message Of Love' across the globe.”

“No artist has ever transformed the pop music landscape as profoundly or as permanently as Jimi Hendrix," echoed Adam Block, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Legacy Recordings. "We are proud to be partnering with Experience Hendrix, keeping the sound and spirit of Jimi's music alive for future generations around the world."

It is said that these releases will include never-before-heard recordings. In addition, Sony will be issuing a series of filmed concerts. The release date is reportedly sometime in 2010.
