'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

‘People, Hell and Angels'

Jimi Hendrix (Experience Hendrix/Legacy)



Not even death can slow down legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Though he recorded just three fully conceived studio albums before his drug-related death in 1970 at age 27, Hendrix left behind a vault of unreleased studio material, and you can count on a couple batches of it to surface, along with entire live concerts, once or twice a year. The latest posthumous release is “People, Hell and Angels,” a scintillating collection of 12 studio recordings made between 1968-70.

The tunes were recorded without the other members of the Jimi Hendrix Experience and offer us a glimpse of where his career might have headed had he not suffered the fatal overdose. Working with a fresh group of musicians, including Stephen Stills (then of the Buffalo Springfield), these songs should appeal to Hendrix's legion of fans. Among the many standouts are “Earth Blues,” personal favorite “Hear My Train a Comin',” “Bleeding Heart,” “Easy Blues,” “Inside Out” and “Mojo Man.” Hendrix remains in a class all by himself.
