|The First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, 1971|| |
When Jimi died in 1970, he left behind a lot of unfinished material for his next record; ment to be called The Cry Of Love or The Rising Sun. Actually, he had been putting aside tapes of what he has the most satisfied with for the past years, to this album.
After his death, Eddie Kramer and Mitch Mitchell sat down to organize his library of halfly finished tapes, and arrange them into an album. Mitch played a whole lot of things again, and added new stuff where something was missing. The state of the songs ranged from Night Bird Flying and Freedom, wich was almost finished, to Angel and Drifting, that was missing serious amouts of work. After five months, the record was ready for release. In 1997, it was re-released under the name The First Rays Of The New Rising Sun, with seven bonus tracks.
