Jimi Hendrix – Both Sides of the Sky

The gift that keeps on giving is the Jimi Hendrix vault. Both Sides of the Sky is the third and final installment in a trilogy series of unissued archival recordings. This recording contains 10 previously unreleased tracks. It follows 2010’s Valleys of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell, and Angels.

Many of the 13 tracks showcase the trio line-up that became known as Band of Gypsys: Hendrix on guitar and vocals, Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on drums. “Hear My Train A Comin'” features the original line-up from the Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding, and drummer Mitch Mitchell.

Several notable guest collaborators highlight the set, including Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter and vocalist/saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood (Hendrix’s pre-fame bandmate in Curtis Knight & the Squires). Stills appears on two tracks recorded in September 1969: a cover version of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” (tracked months before Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s famous reworking) and the original song “$20 Fine.” Winter appears on a previously excerpted rendition of Guitar Slim’s “Things I Used to Do,” appearing here in a full, remixed version.

Engineer Eddie Kramer who worked on every Hendrix project before the guitar legend’s death has co-produced the album with John McDermott and Hendrix’s sister, Janie Hendrix.

The album will be available March 9th, 2018 via Sony Legacy Recordings on multiple formats, including CD, digital and a numbered, 180-gram audiophile double-vinyl.
