Friday 9 March is the release date of the album “Both Sides of the Sky”. The CD contains 13 songs recorded in 1968-70, including 10 previously unpublished. This is the third and final edition of the publishing trilogy. Which presents the most important, previously unpublished study recording of the legendary guitarist. First was the “Valleys of Neptune” (2010), which reached the tops of a sales list in 15 countries. Next was “People, Hell And Angels” (2013), whose single “Somewhere” hit number one on the Billboard list. This has never happened before.
Jimi Hendrix died on September 18, 1970. He released four albums during his lifetime. His studio recordings and concert activity was very intense. The posthumous discography of the artist consists of several dozen studio albums, concert albums, and compilations.
The trio known as Band of Gypsys recorded most of the songs on “Both Sides Of The Sky”. Jimi Hendrix on the guitar and behind the microphone, Billy Cox on bass and Buddy Miles on the drums.
You can also hear other musicians on “Both Sides Of The Sky”. Drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding from the original Jimi Hendrix Experience performed in “Hear My Train A Comin”. This version was recorded in April 1969 and was not published before. In September 1969, Jimi Hendrix invited Stephen Stills to Record Studio in New York. There Stills joined Hendrix and Buddy Miles and the trio recorded the song of Joni Mitchell – “Woodstock”.
Stills also participated in the recording of “$ 20 Fine”, in which we will also hear Mitch Mitchell on drums and Duane Hitchings (Buddy Miles Express) playing the piano.
Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter on guitar
“Things I Used To Do” by Guitar Slim is another interesting song on the album. It was recorded by Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter on guitar, Billy Cox on bass and drummer Dallas Taylor. Eddie Kramer especially for “Both Sides Of The Sky” remixed anew this composition. This song will be presented completely, for the first time.
Next song “Georgia Blues” presents Jimi’s re-collaboration with a former friend from Curtis Knight & The Squires, Lonnie Youngblood (vocal, saxophone).
