Dark Hall Mansion To Release “The Jimi Hendrix Experience” Print By Max Dalton On October 29, 2014

Dark Hall Mansion is so very excited to share one of their absolute favorite releases ever, Max Dalton’s “The Jimi Hendrix Experience.”

Dark Hall Mansion, under license from Authentic Hendrix, will release 3 very special, limited, and select edition prints of Max’s interpretation of Jimi Hendrix within a particularly intimate and quite unusual setting. Max’s vision is informed and shaped not only as artist but as a longtime guitar player himself, his admiration and respect for Jimi’s music and influence, both as guitarist and artist, is also equally undeniable. Max’s vision of Jimi before a wall of guitars, all specifically known to have been owned and played by Jimi, is simply fantastic. From the faded wallpaper and still burning classic axe to Jimi’s gear and stylish hat, it’s soulful, the very essence of Jimi.

“The Jimi Hendrix Experience” limited edition prints go on sale next Wednesday, October 29th on Dark Hall Mansion’s dedicated store page here: http://www.darkhallmansionstore.com/ at a random time between 9:30 AM PST and 12 PM PST.

Annie Lennox To Release New Album, Nostalgia

602537995325_p0_v1_s600

Annie Lennox is the latest singer to try her hand at the Great American Songbook.  Her new album of standards, Nostalgia, arrived September 30, on vinyl.

The disc won’t be released on other formats, like CD and digital, until October 21.  The content, however, will be the same: a collection of classic songs such as “Georgia on My Mind,” “Summertime,” “The Nearness of You,” “God Bless the Child” and “Mood Indigo.”  Lennox says she chose the material after spending hours on YouTube researching these types of songs.

“I was just curious, I thought, ‘I wonder what my voice would be like.  Would these songs suit my voice?’  It was like a little challenge,” the former Eurythmics frontwoman tells Billboard.  “I just sort of got to know them, became friends with them really and had a great deal of joy in the process.”

In 1995, Annie released an album of cover songs called Medusa, but those were relatively modern songs, by the likes of The Temptations, Neil Young, The Clash, Paul Simon and Bob Marley.

Here’s the track listing for Nostalgia:

“Memphis in June”
“Georgia on My Mind”
“I Cover the Waterfront”
“Summertime”
“I Put a Spell on You”
“Strange Fruit”
“God Bless the Child”
“September in the Rain”
“You Belong to Me”
“I Can Dream, Can’t I”
“The Nearness of You”
“Mood Indigo”

PlectrumElectrum meanwhile, marks the debut album from Prince and his band 3rdEyeGirl. This record contains 12 tracks. Of these, we’ve heard Pretzelbodylogic and Fixurlifeup. The album also includes an alternate version of Funknroll.
