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.

“Vicious”

Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
