Click to listen to Jimi Hendrix's 'Hear My Train a Comin''

On March 5th, Experience Hendrix and Legacy will release People, Hell and Angels, a new collection of previously unheard recordings from guitar luminary Jimi Hendrix. Put to tape between 1968 to 1970, the recordings mark the first time Hendrix worked outside of the original Jimi Hendrix Experience Trio – this time teaming up with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles from Band of Gypsys – and suggest new experimental directions for the guitarist.

Now you can get an exclusive first listen to their blistering, stunning rendition of "Hear My Train a-Comin.'" Amazingly, it came out of Hendrix's first session with his thundering new rhythm section. The album is available for preorder on iTunes.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
