Many musicians from the 60s have had recent reissues, like the Beatles and Led Zeppelin. It seems to be the thing to do now that record companies are suffering from a decline in sales of new music. However, the latest reissue comes from an artist that we will most likely be seeing much more from.

Jimi Hendrix, who only released a few cds during the time he was alive, is due for a reissue called Valleys of Neptune, which will release on March 9. The cd contains several unheard songs, like the title track, new recordings of some of his old favorites, and also covers of other band’s songs, like Cream’s ‘Sunshine of Your Love.’

Apparently, Hendrix was hard at work and never had the chance to release all his music because of his death. Hendrix’s stepsister, in an article in Rolling Stone magazine, said, “In the past decade, we’ve discovered so much unheard audio and video that we’ll be able to put out two discs a year for at least the next decade.”

There has also been some said-to-be incredible footage of Hendrix at the Monterey Pop Festival in Miami (1968). Most likely, we will see that come to DVD sometime soon.

If this cd is a must have for you, you can preorder it on amazon.com. There is a full song listing from the cd on the site as well.

“Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?”

That seems to be the number one question out of everyone’s mouths these days. I can easily answer that question — no. This year feels different than many other holidays past. People have less money to spend. (Although I did see a young woman drop $500 on dvds in Best Buy last week. What does she do for a living?!)

It also seems that many people aren’t in the holiday spirit. They aren’t in the mood to go out and shop for gifts. With that, let me go back to a previous statement — people have less money to spend. However, the lady in Best Buy certainly had the right idea. Movies make great gifts. Snuggling up in my blankets and pillows and watching movies is certainly one of my favorite things to do when the winter hits.

Here’s amazon.com’s list of popular and new movies to give to your friends and family this holiday season:

10. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

9. Gran Torino

8. Slumdog Millionaire

7. Quantum of Solace
