A Jimi Hendrix pop-up store is set to open in London next month.

The store, at 8 Ganton Street in Soho, will celebrate the recent release of 'People, Hell & Angels', which consists of tracks from Hendrix recording sessions that took place between early 1968 and late 1969.

It will host a Gered Mankowitz photography exhibit as well as selling limited edition merchandise, records and feature Fender Plug & Play demo stations.

Open from April 1-12, the shop will be launched by Jimi's sister Janie L Hendrix, who will be signing copies of Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Lyric Book on the opening evening.

Gered Mankowitz will then appear at the shop on April 6 to talk about working with Hendrix and he will also be signing copies of his prints.

'People, Hell & Angels' is the first Hendrix release since 2010's 'Valleys Of Neptune', another album made from previously unreleased recordings. There have been other posthumous albums released by the Hendrix estate, namely 'First Rays Of The New Rising Sun' in 1997, which showcased what the guitarist was working on at the time of his death. Although unfinished, it's believed by many to be as close as possible to the album he would have eventually released.
