Legacy Recordings to Release Early Jimi Hendrix Master Recordings
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 07.17.2014

Billboard reports that deal has been made between Experience Hendrix LLC, the Hendrix family music company that owns and administers Jimi Hendrix music rights, and Legacy Recordings, the catalog wing of Sony Music Entertainment, for some of Hendrix's early master recordings.

The recordings reportedly date from 1965-1967 and cover the two-year period when Hendrix also a session guitarist with R&B act Curtis Knight & The Squires in New York. The deal is for the full and complete rights to 88 studio and live recordings by Curtis Knight & The Squires featuring Jimi Hendrix. This concludes a dispute between the Hendrix estate and onetime rights holder Ed Chalpin that lasted for decades.

Terms were not disclosed. The reissues will be overseen by Hendrix's longtime sound engineer Eddie Kramer. Legacy Recordings will release the reissues over the next three years.

The recordings include a live performance at George's Club 20 in Hackensack, New Jersey on December 26, 1965 and studio tracks cut by Curtis Knight & The Squires with Hendrix in July 1967. The recordings will be remastered and released in definitive new editions.
