(hennemusic) Experience Hendrix L.L.C. is previewing a pair of new video trailers for "Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69", the forthcoming live package featuring Jimi Hendrix in his debut performance with the Band Of Gypsys.

Due September 30, the set presents Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles at the famed New York venue just six months after the breakup of The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

Band Of Gypsys played four historic concerts at the Fillmore East in New York City - two on New Year's Eve 1969 and two on New Year's Day 1970. Never before has the first of these sets been available in its entirety, and the vast majority of the performances have never been issued.

First launched with the lead track "Power Of Soul", Hendrix's team have also released audio of the track, "Izabella", as the latest taste of what fans can expect to hear on the recording.

"To hear this new material, for me, was a revelation," says engineer Eddie Kramer. "Here was a rhythm section that was so solid. Having had the great privilege of recording Jimi's first three albums and have them emblazoned in my memory banks, to be confronted with this new direction was kind of shocking, but a natural progression. When I heard this music for the first time, I was knocked out."

The project was produced by Kramer, John McDermott and Janie Hendrix from the original 1" 8 track master tapes. "Machine Gun: The Fillmore East First Show 12/31/69" will be available on CD, 2 LP 180 gram vinyl, high resolution SACD and in digital formats. Watch the previews here.
