Hendrix's 'Purple Haze' Is Re-Issued
Jimi Hendrix's classic 1967 single "Purple Haze" is set to be reissued on February 18th HenneMusic reports. The single is the third installment in the "Experience Hendrix" Sundazed Records Jimi Hendrix singles series.

"Purple Haze" was the second single to be released by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. The re-release features the song's original monaural mixes and a colour picture sleeve. The b-side is 51st Anniversary.

While "Purple Haze" has gone on to be an enduring Hendrix classic, it didn't make a major impact upon its initial release in 1967. The song peaked at 65 on the US Billboard Hot 100, and spent a mere eight weeks on the chart.

Hendrix's final interview was recently animated by PBS web series Blank on Blank. The interview with NME journalist Keith Allston took place on September 11th, 1970, one week before the guitarist died in London.
