See new Jimi Hendrix video for unreleased version of 'Lover Man'

Music 12/03/2018

To celebrate the recent release of Jimi Hendrix posthumous album Both Sides of the Sky, Experience Hendrix has released a new video for the previously unreleased version of 'Lover Man'.

The video features old footage of Hendrix performing the song with his Band of Gypsys with a montage of his home movies and photographs from the studio.

Hendrix and Band of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles recorded the take on 'Lover Man' at New York's Record Plant on December 15th, 1969.

"Imagine Jimi doing a take and when everything falls apart, he'd start playing the Batman or Peter Gunn theme without missing a beat," Hendrix's producer Eddie Kramer told Rolling Stone. "He'd do something really silly and stupid and everybody would be cracking up. He wanted to keep it light. He'd also do it to change it up a bit and inevitably those lines would work themselves into songs, and that's Jimi's sly humor."

The album features 10 officially unreleased Hendrix recordings including 'Send My Love to Linda' and 'Jungle'.
