New Jimi Hendrix Songs Unearthed for 'Both Sides of the Sky' LP
Published Dec 07, 2017Even 47 years after his tragic death, Jimi Hendrix's musical legacy continues to grow. It's just been announced that a new collection of songs will arrive from the late guitar virtuoso early next year. Titled Both Sides of the Sky, the album is due out on March 9 via Legacy Recordings.
The forthcoming release features 13 studio recordings captured between 1968 and 1970, including 10 previously unreleased songs.
Most of the tracks were recorded with the three-piece band later known as Band of Gypsys, featuring Hendrix on guitar and vocals, Billy Cox on bass, and Buddy Miles on drums. Other guest contributors include Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding, Stephen Stills (on "$20 Fine" and the Joni Mitchell-composed "Woodstock"), Duane Hitchings, Johnny Winter, Dallas Taylor and Lonnie Youngblood.
Amongst original cuts, there are also covers of songs by Muddy Waters ("Mannish Boy") and Guitar Slim ("Things I Used to Do"). See the full tracklsiting down below.
The new collection was produced by longtime Hendrix collaborators Janie Hendrix, John McDermott and Eddie Kramer. It will arrive digitally, on CD and 180-gram 2-LP vinyl.
Both Sides of the Sky marks the third and final offering in a trilogy of posthumous albums highlighting unissued recordings from Hendrix's archive. It follows 2010's Valley of Neptune and 2013's People, Hell and Angels.
