11:06 Valleys of Neptune
Valleys of Neptune is a chronicle of Jimi Hendrix's studio experiments in 1969 and 1970. He seemed to have two goals: to perfect some of his earlier material (which he thought to be uneven) and to find a new musical direction. The radio special contains new interviews with Jimi's sister, Janie; his bass player and Army buddy, Billy Cox; his recording engineer, Eddie Kramer; his biographer, John McDermott; and Andy Fairweather Low who toured with Hendrix in 1967 and sings on the previously-unreleased version of Stone Free. The programme and these recordings help answer the question, where was Jimi headed next and provides a glimpse into a musical genius. Valleys of Neptune gives listeners a behind the scenes look at some newly released recordings by the man who changed forever the electric guitar.
