Two out-of-print Jimi Hendrix albums - "The Cry of Love" and "Rainbow Bridge" - are set to be re-released, according to an NME report. The albums will come out on September 15 on CD, vinyl and digital formats. The LPs were his first and second posthumous releases, with both records originally released in 1971 after the legendary guitarist and singer passed away in 1970 at the age of 27.
The songs that make up "The Cry of Love" were recorded from December 1969 into the summer of 1970 at Electric Lady Studios in New York. They were set to be included on a double LP with the working title "First Rays of the New Rising Sun." "Rainbow Bridge" is made up of tracks from the same sessions. Scroll down for the tracklistings for both albums.
