Containing a total of 12 previously unreleased tracks recorded between 1968 and 1970, "People, Hell And Angels" was only bested by "Electric Ladyland" which topped the Billboard 200 chart for a total of two weeks back in 1968. The previous posthumous Hendrix release, "Valleys Of Neptune", also made the top 5 with a No. 4 debut in 2010. Hendrix will only be outsold by the country star Luke Bryan and his latest compilation "Spring Break... Here To Party" which is expected to sell about 120,000 copies. Several tracks from the record were already streamed online prior to the official release, including "Somewhere", "Hear My Train A-Comin" and "Earth Blues".
