Jimi Hendrix Purple Box Set Expanded For Reissue

08/13/2013
.
An newly expanded edition of The Jimi Hendrix Experience's Purple Box four-disc box set will be released next Tuesday, August 20th by Legacy Recordings. We were sent these details and the tracklisting:

The expanded "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" box set (a.k.a. the Purple Box) features the previous box set's tracks as well as four additional tracks. All told the box set presents 60 studio and concert recordings dating from 1966 to 1970.

First released in 2000, The Jimi Hendrix Experience box is sequenced in chronological order, beginning with the first known recordings of the Jimi Hendrix Experience in October 1966, and continuing through the recording of his studio albums as well as a variety of performances, and ending with the Hendrix's final multi-track recording session at New York's Electric Lady Studios in August 1970.

The new edition of The Jimi Hendrix Experience--which includes all the alternate versions of classics like "Purple Haze," "Foxey Lady," "Bold As Love" and "Little Wing" and stunning, unheard Hendrix music such as "It's Too Bad" and "Country Blues" contained in the original 2000 box--offers fans additional new tracks either previously unreleased such as a commanding performance of Bob Dylan's "Like A Rolling Stone" from Hendrix's unforgettable October 1968 performances at Winterland in San Francisco.

The original recording of "Peace In Mississippi" from the October 1968 sessions at TTG Studios, previously available only as the b-side of the 2010 "Valleys Of Neptune" single is a welcome addition to the collection as is a rare, recently discovered 1967 performance of "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp. The original UK single mix of "The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice," now makes its US debut as part of this special collection.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience includes an 80 page color booklet filled with rare photos, essays and annotation by Dave Marsh and John McDermott, detailed track notes and more.
