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.
