In the latest example of how 2010 will be the year of Jimi Hendrix, January 25th will see the release of a live albums featuring mastered recordings of the legendary musician.
As NME reports, recordings of two Hendrix performances at the Paris L’Olympia Theatre (October 9, 1967 & January 29, 1968), as well as one from Ottawa’s Capitol Theater on March 19, 1968 will be packaged as part of a limited edition CD/vinyl. Also included as part of the package will be a poster and postcard set, badges, an iPod skin, guitar picks, and a t-shirt — so you can rock your new Hendrix album on your new Hendrix-styled iPod while wearing your new Hendrix shirt. Nice!
As previously reported, 2010 will likely see the release of a number of Hendrix related release. Experience Hendrix, which controls the musician’s catalog, has previously announced a long-term licensing agreement with Sony Music, which will begin a new Hendrix reissue campaign in 2010.
