Hear Previously Unreleased Hendrix

"Somewhere" is one of the tracks on the upcoming People, Hell, & Angels, a collection of 12 previously unreleased studio recordings Jimi Hendrix made in 1968 and '69. A version of the song appears on the out-of-print posthumous record Crash Landing, and you can find another version on a box set put out in 2000. This one has apparently not been released before. In any case, it sounds great.
