A special CD single comprised of three tracks -- "Foxey Lady" (Cee Lo Green) and "Spanish Castle Magic" (Carlos Santana) from the Legacy Recordings release Power of Soul: A Tribute To Jimi Hendrix, coupled with a previously unreleased version of "Purple Haze" by Robert Randolph & The Slide Brothers recorded live at Atlanta's Fox Theater during last year's Experience Hendrix tour -- will also be available April 12 in conjunction with Record Store Day.
South Saturn Delta (CD and 12" vinyl)
Alongside lost gems as "Tax Free," "Look Over Yonder," and "Pali Gap" stand previously unreleased recordings including "Here He Comes (Lover Man)," "Message To The Universe" and "Midnight Lightning." From demo recordings to finished masters, the guitarist's wide embrace of blues, ballads, rock R&B and jazz is celebrated throughout the album which includes a 24 page full color booklet with rare photos, credits and comprehensive liner notes.
Providing new insights into Hendrix's creative process and unique approach to recording, South Saturn Delta showcases the development of signature songs like "Little Wing," "All Along The Watchtower" and "Angel" while "Power of Soul" and the jazz-influenced title track, among others, represent the guitarist's tantalizing first forays beyond the frontiers of jazz and funk.
