Jimi Hendrix set for highest-charting album in 44 years?
By Billboard Staff ,  Billboard

Rock legend Jimi Hendrix's new archival album, "People, Hell and Angels," is set to debut at No. 2 on next week's Billboard 200 chart -- so say industry sources. The album might sell around 70,000 copies by the end of the tracking week on Sunday.

Find: What was Hendrix's cause of death?

The new Billboard 200 chart's top 10 will be revealed on March 13.

The new album contains 12 previously unreleased studio recordings completed by Hendrix between 1968 and 1970. The singer/songwriter/guitarist died on Sept. 18, 1970.

If the title opens at No. 2, it will mark Hendrix's highest-charting album since 1968, when "Electric Ladyland" spent two weeks at No. 1. Hendrix most recently visited the top 10 of the chart when another from-the-vaults album, 2010's "Valleys of Neptune," debuted and peaked at No. 4.

Very poor loose jams on this CD, that is intentional. The hype on this release all across the internet is artificial. The handful of moguls who orchestrated this are intent on drawing attention to poor Hendrix jam music to cause the public to conclude Jimi is "overrated" - the point is to dwindle and diminish the influence of Hendrix. Why are they doing this?

This is all about rockprophecy com - the Hendrix asteroid prediction which is now manifesting. The day they released the single song from this CD is the day Russia was hit by asteroid, Valentine's Day. Also it's when Asteroid DA14 passed - on Valentine's Day because Jimi named the asteroid storm coming at us "ELECTRIC LOVE" - so the asteroids appeared on Valentines Day = LOVE. The brightest comet ever seen will arrive closest to Earth on Jimi's birthday this year - Comet Ison.

The details of Jimi's prediction are at rockprophecy com. That story is why the moguls are destroying interest in Jimi with this hideously bad CD for People from Hell - the Angels will punish us all with Rocks Jimi predicted - that's why he was the first to be called "Rock Star" as in Asteroid Comet. It was subliminal recognition by our species of Hendrix as mutation sensing remote view of objects in deep space.

As he sang: "Electric Love penetrates the sky, the Mountain falls in the sea, the Sun refuses to shine..." Jimi

On March 4 ANOTHER asteroid the size of the one that hit Russia came closer than the moon, and ANOTHER on Mar 9, and THREE new comets are on the way. Prophet Jimi rockprophecy com

Robert Northcutt: Jimi was and still is the best. There is no better guitar player today, that can sing and play like that-none. There may be faster shredders out there, but going fast is not what makes a guitar player great. It comes with years of playing and knowing when to get loud, and when to slow things up, and get more soulful.

 

 

I think Randy Rhoads would beat his **** to a pulp .... Hendrix was good ..; but WAY Overrated .... Randy Rhoads would smoke him ...
