Early Jimi Hendrix Recordings Set for March Release

Before Jimi Hendrix took the rock world by storm, he spent a little over a year as a member of an R&B band called Curtis Knight & the Squires. During his stint with Knight, Hendrix recorded a number of tracks under a 1965 contract with PPX Records. Hendrix essentially forgot about the contract when he moved to London and formed the Experience, and those tracks have never been released, until now. Experience Hendrix and Sony’s Legacy division announced Wednesday they will be releasing an album of those lost tracks this spring. Titled You Can’t Use My Name: Curtis Knight & The Squires (featuring Jimi Hendrix) The RSVP/PPX Sessions, the album is slated for a March 24th release after a long-running dispute with PPX was resolved last July.
