'First Listen' to JIMI HENDRIX Playing "Mannish Boy!"

1 of 10 previously unreleased cuts from upcomig 'Both Sides of the Sky' LP

January 16, 2018

March 9th will see the release of the 3rd (and final) disc in a JIMI HENDRIX 'trilogy,' and we've just been given the first 'taste' of the album-a scorching cover of the (Muddy Waters') blues classic, 'Mannish Boy.' (listen below) The 'Both Sides of the Sky' album joins the 2 previous releases in the 'trilogy,' 'Valleys of Neptune' (2010) and 'People, Hell and Angels' (2014), in presenting "the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the music legend's archive." The new album's 13 songs (10 of them being heard for the first time!)  were recorded between January 1968 and February 1970 with (mostly) the personnel that would become the 'Band of Gypsys'- Hendrix on guitar & vocals, Billy Cox on bass, and Buddy Miles on drums. As noted in a previous blog post about the new album, there are guest appearances on the album from Stephen Stills (whom Hendrix met at the 1967 Monterrey Pop Festival) and Johnny Winter. The album will be released on multiple formats including CD, digital, and as a numbered 180-gram audiophile vinyl 2LP. Rock On!
