GuitarWorld.com presents this exclusive premiere of "Purple Haze" by Robert Randolph & The Family Band. This tour-de-force live version of the classic Jimi Hendrix tune is from Robert Randolph & the Family Band Live In Concert, which will be released Tuesday, September 27, via Dare Records.
Something was up. Stevie Ray Vaughan looked like the cat that swallowed the canary. He had plenty of reason to be pleased, of course: A few weeks earlier, Vaughan and his band, Double Trouble, had received their first Grammy (in the ethnic music category, for some tunes on a Montreux Jazz Festival blues anthology), capping a year in which they'd won a number of other industry awards.
As previously reported, Experience Hendrix LLC and Sony Legacy are releasing four new titles as their ongoing Jimi Hendrix catalog project. This new wave of releases focuses on live Hendrix, including a four-disc deluxe box-set version of Winterland, which will be released September 13.
