Hear the New JIMI HENDRIX Single "Valleys of Neptune" Now!

Admittedly, when Experience Hendrix announced they would be releasing Valleys of Neptune, an album of previously unreleased songs that Jimi Hendrix recorded during the time between Electric Ladyland and Band of Gypsys, I was a little fearful that the track list would comprise half-finished, demo-quality sketches.
But yesterday (1/28), Spinner.com posted the album's title track, "Valleys of Neptune," which you can hear at this location, and as you'd expect from the greatest guitar player in rock history, it doesn't disappoint. The only complaint I can envision hearing—and certainly not from me—is that the recording is so crisp and clean. It's pretty obvious that the song was mastered in the 21st century, so some vinyl and analog enthusiasts will cry foul, but man does it sound great!
The single is scheduled for global release on Tuesday, February 2, and the complete album will be released on Sony/Legacy on March 9, 2010.
