Expanded Jimi Hendrix Purple Box Set To Be Released Later This Month

An expanded version of Jimi Hendrix's The Jimi Hendrix Experience box set, aka The Purple Box, which includes four previously unreleased or hard-to-find tracks, will be released later this month.

The new version of The Purple Box contains everything from the 2000 release, such as alternate versions of classics like "Purple Haze," "Foxey Lady" and "Little Wing," as well as previously unheard music including "It's Too Bad" and "Country Blues."

Also included is a cover of Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" from Hendrix's performances at San Francisco's Winterland in October 1968, as well as the original recording of "Peace in Mississippi," previously only available as the B-side to 2010's "Valleys of Neptune" single.

The updated Jimi Hendrix Experience box set will be released on August 20.
