First Rays of the New Rising Sun is a compilation album  by American rock musician Jimi Hendrixfeaturing songs mostly intended for his planned fourth studio album. The track album was one of the first releases overseen by Experience Hendrix, a family company that took over management of his recording legacy.
At the time of his death inHendrix was working on enough songs for a double album, with one proposed title First Rays of the New Rising Sun. He also added female backing singers to one track, and claimed co-composer credit on several tracks. For the compilation, Kramer instead used the original master recordings and sequenced the songs to realize Hendrix's plans to the best of his abilities.
Yet when all is said and done, [it] is not what Hendrix would have issued as his fourth album. No such record could be posthumously compiled, as nobody knows with absolute certainty what songs he would have included, and what additional production work he might have done on the ones he had laid down in the studio, no matter how complete they might have seemed to others.
According to Robert Christgau in BlenderFirst Rays of Ding Din Don - Edith Piaf - Histoires Damour New Rising Sun was Kramer's reimagination of Hendrix's projected double LP, Out In The Fields - Various - Hits 85 • Das Internationale Doppelalbum was not as remarkable musically as his last studio album Electric Ladyland and "not too profound lyrically".
He highlighted the "liberating presence" of bassist Billy Coxdeeming him an improvement over Noel Redding. According to Murphy, Cox allowed the band to "spread out and chase the guitarist as he soars above, around and beneath them".
