New Album On The Way Featuring Unreleased Jimi Hendrix Tracks From 1968-1970
Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings have announced a new Jimi Hendrix release coming on March 9, 2018 featuring previously unreleased tracks between 1968 and 1970. This comes in a line of archival releases following 2010’s Valleys Of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell & Angels.
The 13-track album dubbed, Both Sides of The Sky, will include 10 never before heard tracks and prominently features Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys trio featuring drummer Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox. In addition, Both Sides of The Sky will contain recordings of Johnny Winters appearing on “Things I Used To Do,” original Jimi Hendrix Experience members Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding appearing on“Hear My Train A Comin’,” Lonnie Youngblood on “Georgia Blues” as well as Stephen Stills appearing on two songs: “$20 Fine” and “Woodstock.”
Recording engineer, Eddie Kramer, who worked on every Hendrix album during his life, notes in regard to the unreleased, “The first thing is you put the tape on and you listen to it and the hairs just stand up right on the back of your neck and you go, ‘Oh my God. This is too (expletive) incredible.” He continues: “It’s an incredible thing. Forty, 50 years later here we are and I’m listening to these tapes going, ‘Oh my God, that’s an amazing performance.’”
