In his lifetime, Jimi Hendrix didn't just release three studio albums, he released three of the most influential studio albums of his era.
Are You Experienced (1967), Axis: Bold as Love (1967) and Electric Ladyland (1968) have all gone on to shape the sound of psychedelic rock and heavy metal to this day, 43 years after his death.
People, Hell and Angels, a posthumous album set to be released on March 5 (you can purchase the album here), contains 12 previously unreleased songs that were supposed to be on Hendrix's fourth LP, and CBC Music wants to give you a chance to own it on vinyl.
From 9 a.m. ET on March 1 to 11:59 p.m. ET on March 8, you can enter to win the ultimate Jimi Hendrix prize pack, which not only includes a copy of the new album, but also the Jimi Hendrix Anthology box set containing eight LPs, the Jimi Hendrix Experience "Winterland" CD box set and more (total value: $291.99). There are also three second-place prizes, which include copies of the new album, a T-shirt and poster.
