South Saturn Delta is a reissue of the 1997 album that collects rare tracks from every incarnation of group in which Hendrix played including both versions of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, his expanded Woodstock ensemble Gypsy Sun & Rainbows, and the Band of Gypsys.

There are fifteen tracks on the album, including demos to lost masters. Alongside lost gems as Tax Free, Look Over Yonder, and Pali Gap stand previously unreleased recordings including Here He Comes (Lover Man), Message To The Universe and Midnight Lightning.

The album will be released on CD, digital download and double-12" vinyl.

The final re-release will be a DVD of Jimi Hendrix: Band of Gypsys (Live at Fillmore East), the Grammy award winner for Best Long Form Video of 1999. The 83-minute documentary includes interviews with Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles with additional comments from Lenny Kravitz, Vernon Reed and Slash. The concert footage is the only known footage of the group in concert, including Jimi's stunning and devastating performance of Machine Gun.

The new edition of the DVD also has previously unseen bonus features, new stereo and 5.1 mixes and additional footage of performances of Foxy Lady, Power Of Soul, Stepping Stone and Who Knows.

Legacy's first round of Jimi Hendrix releases opened with the release of Valleys of Neptune, a long-awaited album of previously unavailable Jimi Hendrix studio recordings, which debuted on the Billboard 200 best-selling albums chart at #4 while four additional Hendrix catalog titles (Are You Experienced (#44), Electric Ladyland (#60), First Rays of the New Rising Sun (#63), and Axis: Bold As Love (#67)) rocketed back into the Billboard 200 four decades after their original release dates. A testimony to the enduring vitality and importance of the trailblazing artist-guitarist-performer, Jimi Hendrix had five albums in America's Top 100 in March 2010.

The second wave of 2010 Jimi Hendrix titles culminated in the long awaited release of West Coast Seattle Boy: The Jimi Hendrix Anthology, a definitive career-spanning four CD box set tracking Hendrix's remarkable journey from R&B sideman to international stardom. The deluxe set is filled with previously unreleased Jimi Hendrix Experience recordings plus demos, alternate takes and more. The newly curated and assembled Jimi Hendrix anthology will include a new Hendrix documentary directed by the Grammy award winning Bob Smeaton (Beatles Anthology, Festival Express, Beatles: The Studio Recordings).

More than 1,000,000 Jimi Hendrix albums were sold in 2010 alone.
