Unreleased Jimi Hendrix material the guitar legend wrote and recorded with twin brothers Arthur and Albert Allen — a.k.a. the Ghetto Fighters — may finally be released through software/multimedia company we-R-you, reports Rolling Stone.
This material has been in the vault for almost 40 years.
The previously unreleased material was produced by Jimi Hendrix, Arthur Allen and Albert Allen aka TaharQa Aleem and Tunde Ra Aleem, the 3 principals of Jimi Hendrix and the Ghetto Fighters.
The Aleems and Jimi Hendrix made up the members of the group and are the originators of the material. It will be released internationally through a wholly owned subsidiary of the we-R-you Corporation formed with the Aleem Brothers to bring these projects to market.
The Aleems first met and began working with Jimi Hendrix in the mid 1960s and together recorded three Hendrix albums, “Cry of Love,” “Rainbow Bridge” and “War Heroes.”
The newly released material includes previously unheard recordings, a feature length movie script, a full length autobiography, a series of animated short stories for TV and the web, and drawings by Hendrix of himself as an illustrated character, which in today’s virtual reality world would be known as an avatar.
“Jimi was a true visionary,” according to TaharQa Aleem, “whose creativity went far beyond music. He saw the future and while he may not have understood computers or known about digital technology and virtual worlds, he knew that things like this were coming and created material that would work in that world.”
