Eddie Kramer Discusses Jimi Hendrix's Final Recordings

Famed record engineer and producer Eddie Kramer, who served as Jimi Hendrix’s record engineer throughout his entire career, discusses the legendary guitarist’s final recordings in a new video interview. The previously unreleased recordings comprise a new album, People, Hell and Angels, that will be released on March 5, 2013.

In the clip featured on rollingstone.com, Kramer cues up its lead single, “Somewhere,” a cut that features Stephen Stills and drummer Buddy Miles. It’s also a track that showcases the bold and experimental direction that Hendrix was exploring during this studio time in 1968-1969.

“That’s a fantastic example of Jimi’s amazing control of the wah-wah [pedal], the tone of the wah-wah – how that affects the whole song,” notes Kramer.
