THE MUSIC OF JIMI HENDRIX LIVES ON
IN RANDY HANSEN'S TRIBUTE
Forty years after his death, Jimi Hendrix is still leaving an impact on the music world. The recent release of Valleys of Neptune -- a collection of previously unreleased studio recordings -- rocketed Jimi to #4 on the Billboard 200 Chart, making it the highest-charting album of his career. While the legend of this true "guitar hero" lives on, no one celebrates it more than the remarkable Randy Hansen.
For over thirty years, Hansen has been building a reputation as the foremost Hendrix tribute on Earth. As one of the few players officially recognized by the Hendrix family, he has been successfully doing his act since the '70s, stunning audiences worldwide as he channels the spirit of Jimi and perfectly recreates the stage presence and skill of the legendary axeman. Aside from his loyal fanbase, Hansen's guitar work is respected throughout the music business. He's played alongside some of the greats, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Steve Miller, Paul Rodgers, Herbie Hancock, and original Jimi Hendrix Experience members Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell... Also original Band Of Gypsies members, Buddy Miles and Billy Cox.

Randy Hansen's 1980 Capitol Album Re- Release
RANDY HANSEN 'S/T' CANDY187
IT’S TRUE to say that Randy Hansen is one of the greatest rock guitarists of our time. Sure, his name and work, like that of Robin Trower and Frank Marino, has inevitably been associated with fellow Seattle native Jimi Hendrix, but Hansen is not a mere clone having recorded one of the most innovative hard rock albums of the early 80s, a record that pretty much set standards for electric guitar playing. Hansen first came to prominence in the 70s staging a sophisticated and hugely successful Jimi Hendrix tribute show going under the handle of Randy Hansen’s Machine Gun which attracted the attention of music producer David Rubinson and film director Francis Ford Coppola who asked Randy to provide musical interludes for the movie ‘Apocalypse Now’. Catching the ear of Capitol Records, Hansen was signed and given free rein on his debut album, a record that deliberately steered clear of obvious Hendrix comparisons but showcased a solid grasp of intelligent song writing an avalanche of guitar pyrotechnics. Originally issued in 1980, the album is packed with the sort of hard rock bravado that you might expect from a three piece power trio but thankfully steers clear of clichés. His style is fluid and fast with melody and muscle to the fore yet encouraging cool free-form jamming in tracks such as ‘Champagne And Cocaine’, ‘Time Won’t Stop’ and Millionaire’. If you like explosive guitar playing you’ll love this album. 24-bit remastering, 3,500 word essay about the making of the album, new interview with Randy, enhanced artwork and photos spread out over a 12 page full colour booklet. TRACK LISTING: 1. CHAMPAGNE AND COCAINE 2. WATCH WHAT YOU SAY 3. TIME WON'T STOP 4. I WANT TO TAKE YOU HIGHER 5. MILLIONAIRE 6. DANCIN' WITH ME 7. DON'T PRETEND
