For Your Info:
Vaulted Jimi Hendrix and the Ghetto Fighters(TM) Material to Be Released

Last update: 1:22 p.m. EDT Sept. 17, 2008
NEW YORK, NY, Sep 17, 2008 (MARKET WIRE via COMTEX) --
After almost 40 years in the vault, the never before heard or seen multimedia material produced by Jimi Hendrix and the Ghetto Fighters(TM) is being readied for release and licensing through a subsidiary of the we-R-you Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WERU), the technology, software and multimedia company. The previously unreleased material was produced by Jimi Hendrix, Arthur Allen and Albert Allen aka TaharQa Aleem and Tunde Ra
Aleem, the 3 principals of Jimi Hendrix and the Ghetto Fighters, and
will be made available globally through a wholly owned subsidiary of the
we-R-you Corporation formed with the Aleem Brothers to bring these
projects to market. The Aleems and Jimi Hendrix made up the members of
the group and are the originators of the material. The Aleems first met
and began working with Jimi Hendrix in the mid 1960s and together
recorded three Hendrix albums, "Cry of Love," "Rainbow Bridge" and "War
Heroes."
The newly released material includes previously unheard recordings, a
feature length movie script, a full length autobiography, a series of
animated short stories for TV and the web, and drawings by Hendrix of
himself as an illustrated character, which in today's virtual reality
world would be known as an avatar. "Jimi was a true visionary,"
according to TaharQa Aleem, "whose creativity went far beyond music. He
saw the future and while he may not have understood computers or known
about digital technology and virtual worlds, he knew that things like
this were coming and created material that would work in that world."
Added brother Tunde Ra, "Jimi might not have known what an avatar was,
but he foresaw a day when we would all have representations of ourselves
that could move in different worlds. When you see his original sketches
of himself and create a real avatar out of them using today's
technology, the result is amazing." The Ghetto Fighters were formed in
1970 by Jimi and the Aleem Brothers (who are identical twins) to explore
new projects that would go beyond the work Jimi had been doing and
expand the sounds he was working with. "The music and material sounds
brand new," according to TaharQa, "and for all intents and purposes it
is. It'll surprise and delight current fans and new ones to come."
"The material will be released in segments," according to Allen
LeWinter, Chief Branding and Marketing Officer of we-R-you, who is
heading up the project. "It's like finding more treasure than you could
have imagined and realizing that each element needs to be released in
its own time and way," continued LeWinter. "The Aleems are incredibly
talented and incredibly protective at the same time and want to ensure
that this is done just right for the legacy of Jimi Hendrix and The
Ghetto Fighters." The Aleems and all the rights were first brought to
we-R-you through the efforts of Spydo Mobile and its principal, Duane
"Spyder" Hughes. Spyder recognized the changing face of the
entertainment business and brought the Aleems to we-R-you for an "all in
one deal."
About The Aleem Brothers
Tunde Ra and TaharQa Aleem began their careers working with the greats
of rhythm & blues such as Sam Cook, Sam & Dave, Otis Redding, Big
Maybelle, Bobby Womack, Clarence "Blowfly" Reid and many others.
Learning the inner workings of the music industry through their
association with Harlem legend Fat Jack Taylor, owner of the independent
label Ro-Jack Records, TaharQa and Tunde Ra would later establish the
famous Harlem World club with Taylor, which proved to be a spawning
ground for a large number of pioneer rap acts. While working with
Ro-Jack Records the Aleems first met Jimi Hendrix while Jimi was still a
sideman playing and touring with Little Richard, the Isley Brothers and
others. Soon after, Jimi, TaharQa and Tunde Ra shared an apartment in
Manhattan's Park West Village and formed a bond which would indelibly
shape the brothers' as well as Jimi's life and career.

It looks like it could finally get released:

No matter what agreements are signed, it won't be released until EH approves it and gets their cut. Otherwise, they will sue and it will never see the light of day. EH claims worldwide release rights to ANY Hendrix recording in existence.

So true...

I think both drummer Janne Carlsson and engineer Anders Lind have stated this as (one) reason Jimi´s jam with Hansson & Karlsson will never be released.

maybe they should release the jam under a pseudonym like guitarist formerly known as "the messenger to love".

So how long will this one be held up in litigation by EH? They've got their reasons of course but come on some of this stuff, at least one song slipped out before? I forgot the name of the song. I heard it on a website featuring the Aleem bros story a few years ago.

The last announcement was 2+ years ago with We-R-You. While this new announcement sounds good we are now looking at a completely different company for the project.

This could either mean we are starting over a square one and need to wait another 2 years + for release or WE-R-You was simply screwing up and not providing the product they wanted so they changed companies to help them release. Lastly We-R-You may have tired of trying to come to an agreement with EH and they decided to start over with a new company to release.

Something to look forward to someday if we live long enough.

I'll keep my fingers crossed but something tells me Janie/Sony ain't gonna' let this happen. As far as I know - it's only Mojo Man for audio, right?

They might get away with it, if they don't credit Jimi on the album, and if he didnt write any of the words or music...

Sounds like a pipe dream to me. I'd be satisfied just to hear whatever music they recorded together. All this other business about avatars and movie scripts will never come to market. But the music, if the song is co-written and co-published by the Ghetto Fighters I don't see how Janie can stop them as long as they deliver Jimi's share of royalties.

EH ($100 Million Company) can stop anything simply by tying them up in court until they run out of money to fight. This is a standard tactic that Record Companies have used for many years. They have an unlimited amount of money for legal fees. The average Joe does not, and soon runs out of money. End of case. Big Guys Win! The recordings never see the light of day.

Good idea :)
Or in Eastern Europe - it seems not all countries there follow the Rome convention or blah blah blah.

well, I forgot to add that if there are is no working law system, most of the times a mafia type of system takes its place with clans, connections, and retributions (both friendly and hostile that is), so, without the proper connections and "securities", any kind of business is doomed to fail.

Taiwan in that respect is much better, maybe they should try their luck over there.

Not much material really:

2. Jet Set
3. Sugar Daddy
4. Press Conference

#4 is just a guitar lick that's been looped.

Couldn't remember the name of "Mojo Man" as the track. I did hear it some time ago on the net.It's strange how rare tidbits will pop up for a short time and disappear again.

"Sugar Daddy" is the melody of "Goodbye Bessie Mae" with new lyrics. It's my understanding that Juma and Buddy added overdubs (after Jimi's death) to a few of these songs.
