Lubbock, TX - March 5, 2010 - ScatterTunes™, the company that is revolutionizing music through its innovative and interactive V-Album technology, has teamed up with Experience Hendrix, LLC to present five Jimi Hendrix V-Album releases --Valleys of Neptune, Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold As Love, Electric Ladyland and First Rays Of The New Rising Sun-- on March 9, 2010. Included in these V-Albums are bonus features such as documentary videos, revised liner notes, photos, scans of handwritten lyrics and more (see below for full listing). ScatterTunes.com is the only place that fans can go to get these features in the exclusive V-Album format.

Janie Hendrix, President and CEO of Experience Hendrix, says, "We're delighted that ScatterTunes™ is offering Hendrix fans an enhanced 'experience' in connection with these V-Albums. The additional content reflects the spirit of my brother's multi-dimensional presence that has been a touchstone for five generations of music lovers. This will be a real treat for Jimi Hendrix fans, both young and seasoned."

The Valleys of Neptune V-Album offers more than 60 minutes of previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix music, originally recorded and newly mixed by Hendrix's longtime engineer Eddie Kramer, who first worked with the guitarist on his smash 1967 debut Are You Experienced. Are You Experienced will also receive the V-Album treatment, along with its legendary follow-up Axis: Bold As Love, the epic tour de force Electric Ladyland, and Jimi's final masterpiece First Rays Of The New Rising Sun.
