Here at the Jazz Club we have a few copies of the new Jimi Hendrix Compilation Album to give away.
Both Sides of the Sky is a ‘new’ Jimi Hendrix album released by Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings which features 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970— ten of which have never before been released.
Both Sides of the Sky is the third volume in a trilogy of albums that feature unissued studio recordings, following Valleys of Neptune (2010) and People, Hell and Angels (2013).
Many of the album’s tracks were recorded by the trio that would come to be known as Band of Gypsys: Jimi on guitar and vocals, Billy Cox on bass, and Buddy Miles on drums and indeed Both Sides of the Sky opens with their uptempo reworking of Muddy Waters’ Mannish Boy.
It also features an assortment of guest musicians including Stephen Stills (who befriended Hendrix at the June 1967 Monterey Pop Festival), Johnny Winter and Lonnie Youngblood, his old bandmate from his pre-fame days in Curtis Knight & The Squires.
This archival release was produced by Janie Hendrix, John McDermott, and Eddie Kramer. Kramer served as recording engineer on every Jimi Hendrix album made during the artist’s life.
