People, Hell and Angels..Hendrix

One of the last Hendrix studio sessions have been exhumed and put on this last release called "People, Hell and Angels. This is a follow up to 2010's Valleys of Neptune. This release consists of a dozen blues-rock songs Hendrix recorded outside "The Experience," between March 1968 and August 1970. Most were recorded at the Record Plant in NY. Mitch Mitchell is on drums on some tracks as well as Buddy Miles, Billy Cox on Bass. One of the original engineers at the Record Plant, Mr. Eddie Kramer was involved in this effort of restoration and re-mastering. Incredible Job. Enjoy one of the last Hendrix studio sessions. Since this restoration, one more Hendrix CD has been released.  They keep findin stuff. Luckily, it has not deteriorated or they have not started to put in junk. Standards have been maintained. Let's hope they keep it that way.

Interview With The Human. Central Valley Talk Radio

I was interviewed by Central Valley Talk Radio, Thursday July 12th, 2018.

It was nice to be recognized by "home town" radio and be given a change to shed some light on my music.  That said, it was difficult to talk about my entire music career in 10 minutes.  Easy to leave people out, things out. I did the best I could. People I would like to thank but I didn't  is all the musicians from the Central Valley who have played on my CD's over the past years.  Most from Visalia and Fresno area.  They are bad ass. All you have to do is listen to the CD's.  They make my songs take flight.  Appreciate all of them.

I was born in Georgia, but my formative years growing up were spent in the Central Valley of California in the small town of Corcoran. Went to High School There.  Returned and taught 19 years there. So in a sense, I am a product of the Central Valley. I still live here.  This is where my music comes from.  Yes, there are many outside influences but it all goes down here. In the Central Valley of California.

Deep Cut, Basement Tapes Human Project

Every so often I do a show with just Human Project stuff. This one is mostly made up of music that has not been released or for sale. Most of it was recorded in my home studio.  It has limitations, especially when it comes to drums, but other than that, I can get a strong sound.  Sometimes I use Conga's or get creative in other ways to make up for it. I like that raw sound I get. I play all the instruments, and some occasions I have my friend Adam, AC Myles come over and he will put a lead track down. This has worked out well, considering no practice goes into it, he just lays it down.  It adds to spontaneousness of it.  The last track, "Connection," is my most recent studio track. I have not done one of these in well over a year.  I talked about this in an earlier blog, but it's a Jagger/Richards tune that was covered by Montrose in 1974. I pattern my cover more after this one.  Very happy with the results. It has not been released for sale yet.

Human Project Discography

Loyd Vandergriff aka "The Human," recorded his first CD in 2006 called The Real Stuff.  He had not played seriously at all for well over 30 years when he started messin around again.  This first "just for fun" effort hit with a bang in Switzerland and other places, got him a big gig at Stanford University and ultimately into the Blues Hall of Fame in 2010 as a representative from Clovis, CA.  Given all this, The Human decided to write and record another CD, "Human Project II, Humanize" in 2008.  He considers this one of his best efforts.  Due to a small but loyal international fan following, he just kept going.  His most recent effort was 2017's "Humanize."  This CD has continued the momentum established by earlier releases and his download sales every month are strong.  He continues to write and has many songs "in the can."  You never know when "The Human," will release another one.
