If there were any doubts about the lingering force of rock guitarist Jimi Hendrix, just look at his new single "Somewhere." Almost 43 years after his death, "Somewhere" went to No.1 on the Billboard Hot Singles sales in February, boding well for the latest posthumous album plucked from a Hendrix musical vault that producers say has survived the test of time. "People, Hell and Angels," released next Tuesday (March 05), is billed as a collection of twelve previously unreleased studio performances by Hendrix, although fans note that some of the music has emerged in other forms since his death at age 27 in 1970 of an accidental drug overdose. The tracks on "People, Hell and Angels," were planned as a follow-up to the influential guitar player's 1968 chart-topping album "Electric Ladyland."
