The keepers of Jimi Hendrix's flame are calling the new album of long-buried recordings by the proto-rock guitar hero "Valleys of Neptune."

There's been no shortage of posthumous Jimi Hendrix releases since the groundbreaking electric guitarist, singer and songwriter died at age 27 in 1970: Only three Hendrix albums charted during his lifetime, while more than three dozen released after his death have made it to the Billboard 200 Albums chart. Still, the appearance this week of three Hendrix albums constitutes something noteworthy. First up is “People, Hell and Angels,” a collection of a dozen previously unreleased studio tracks recorded in 1968 and 1969, sessions culled under the direction of the guitarist's sister, Janie Hendrix, who administers his estate, and producer-engineer Eddie Kramer, who worked closely with Hendrix in those final years of his life.

Sixty years after his birth, one of the most important artists ever to emerge from Seattle is -- at least officially -- almost invisible here. There's no Jimi Hendrix Boulevard, no Hendrix Arena, no Hendrix Elementary School. The only thing the city has done to recognize the man many consider the world's greatest guitar player is to give him a rock -- at the Woodland Park Zoo.

The rights to reproduce hundreds of recordings by the late Jimi Hendrix are slated to be auctioned in New York in October, a potentially lucrative catalog from a musician who still sells more than 600,000 albums annually. The problem is that two parties claim they own the rights: a company run by members of the legendary rock guitarist's family and the estate of Hendrix's former manager.
