It looks as if the new Jimi Hendrix collection, People, Hell and Angels, will land at number-two when this week's Billboard chart is revealed on Wednesday -- at least if the "industry sources" cited by the Hollywood Reporter are on the mark.
The magazine says the album will have sold about 70,000 copies by Sunday's end of the tracking week. If it does debut at number-two, it'll be the highest-charting Hendrix release since his third album, Electric Ladyland, went number-one for two weeks in 1968.
People, Hell and Angels is the ninth posthumous U.S. album of studio material by Hendrix. The last one, 2010's Valleys of Neptune debuted and peaked at number-four. At the time, it was his highest-charting posthumous release since the first one, 1971's The Cry of Love.
