New Jimi Hendrix album includes unheard songs
A new Jimi Hendrix album is set for release and includes 10 previously unheard tracks.
Both Sides of the Sky arrives on March 9 and is the final part of a trilogy including 2010’s Valleys of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell and Angels.
The album has come together from Eddie Kramer, who worked on every Hendrix recording during his life and continues to maintain his archive.
The 13-track LP focuses on the period between January 1968 and February 1970, with material featuring the trio of Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles.
“Jimi’s true home was the studio – that’s where the music and the magic happened," Kramer, who co-produced with John McDermott and Hendrix’s sister Janie, said. "He loved everything about recording, and it’s been my distinct pleasure and an honor to play a part in that process both then and now.”
