Jimi Hendrix lights a Fire under the World Cup
Sony today announced the brand new release of a 20-track album of Jimi Hendrix’s greatest hits entitled Fire: The Jimi Hendrix Collection on 7 June 2010. With title track ‘Fire’ specially selected for ITV’s World Cup promotions running throughout May and June, the guitar superhero’s outstanding work is, once again, reaching a whole new generation 40 years after his death.
The album will include all of Jimi Hendrix’s essential and greatest tracks including ‘All Along The Watchtower’, ‘Purple Haze’, ‘Voodoo Child’, ‘Are You Experienced’, ‘Foxy Lady’, ‘Hey Joe’ and ‘Little Wing’. Additionally, Fire: The Jimi Hendrix Collection will feature four tracks off the newly curated Valleys of Neptune album - never previously available on any past collection.
Valleys of Neptune (released March 2010) has already made this a monumental year for the Hendrix Estate. Marking the 40th Anniversary of the great musician’s death, the album has seen outstanding praise with chart topping success around the globe. The album features the final studio recordings Jimi made in 1969 and has provided Fire: The Jimi Hendrix Collection with yet more stunning music and completes this album with the strongest tracklisting to date.
Widely considered as the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix will forever be remembered as a true legend in music history. This collector’s item provides fans with an unrivalled compilation of Hendrix’s music and documents his ingenious work at its best.
