The Hendrix necrophilia continues. As the recording industry and record labels circle the drain, it figures they'd "discover" some songs.

Does Jimi Hendrix matter, anymore?

Fact: he absolutely revolutionized the guitar and broke ground with the six-string electric, to the point that Dylan went electric because of Jimi. So he will always be a seminal groundbreaker.

But now everybody has had time to catch up. Entire generations. Isn't there something newer that is worthier?

Maybe it'll include the duet with Morrison.

It's his final recording- "Gag choke puke gag choke gasp croak". They overdubbed guitar later on.

all the new Hendricks is over produced and drowns out he vocals, this is not a buy

Well, the music industry is certainly pooting forth a whole lotta newer stuff that's less worthy.

Does Albert Einstein matter any more? Gallileo? DaVinci?

I will happily DL it when it comes out. Chances are pretty good that 40 year old, previously unreleased studio dregs from Hendrix are more entertaining the crap that passes as popular music these days.

I have seen the song list from a NY Times article. Nothing new, just different versions of his lesser known songs. It is a shame the family keeps releasing inferior songs.

Dylan went electric in '65, Are You Experienced? didn't come out until '67.

Who is responsible for this? Even leeches and other parasites stop feeding off someone after they're dead

He's pretty high on the list of "essential" rock musicians. Just about every rock/blues guitarist goes through a Hendrix phase at some point in their development and his songs are still covered by guitarists 40 years after his death.. So, yeah, he still matters. That said, I can't say that I'm a fan of his posthumously released stuff

/and just FYI - Seeing The Beatles live led Dylan to go electric two years prior to Are You Experienced?

Arent they shooting a Jimi Hendrix movie that wont feature any Hendrix music because his family isnt getting a big enough cut?

Yeah. They also have to call him "Jackie Jormp-Jomp"

That is true. They can't show any songs that he wrote and the family has rights to. There was another movie years ago, made for TV I think, that couldn't use any of his originals either.

Hendrix's family have complete control over his estate. Their fierce grip on his legacy is on of the reasons there has never been an authorized movie.

But the Boobies nailed it. The man died at 27. How prolific could he have been to have "new" songs/albums coming out every few years since his death.

I still enjoy listening to "War Heros" Midnight. Jimi, and Mitch just killing it.

It's pretty well known that there is a shiatload of unreleased material in the vaults including jam sessions with Keef, Clapton, Lennon, Townsend, and Miles Davis among others, aside from his own stuff. His father, who sued ad won Jimi's estate, wouldn't allow any one to even LOOK at the reels. He passed away a few years ago and now the next generation of the family who inherited it all has decided to start going through and releasing what they see fit. Half of all monies are to go to a music program for underprivileged kids. There are supposedly over 100 original tunes as well as all the jam session stuff. The problem is is that most of the songs were not completed so it's a tough call on how far to go to get a song finished.

Hope it's a follow up to "S'cuse me while I kiss this guy."

There is supposed to be an album worth of songs with Arthur Lee. Lee is one of the most under appreciated artist of that era. I sure wish that would get released.

Has the Rainbow Bridge Soundtrack ever been released on CD?

Steve Hillage.
The White, English, Jesus-look-alike successor to Hendrix.

Really? Reallllly? He was a cover artist that screwed with his guitar in between doing drugs. Hugely overrated, and your comparison is outlandish.
