The latest officially sanctioned vault collection from the Jimi Hendrix estate will feature Stephen Stills.
Both Sides Of The Sky collection was produced by Janie Hendrix, Eddie Kramer, and John McDermott for Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., and features 13 studio recordings made between 1968 & 1970, which 10 of the songs have never before been released. The album will be released on CD, digital, and as a numbered 180-gram audiophile vinyl double-LP.
The album includes studio Band Of Gypsies cuts featuring Hendrix, Billy Cox on bass, & Buddy Miles on drums during their first recording session on April 22nd, 1969. The new set features the trio’s previously unreleased, uptempo reworking of Muddy Waters’ “Mannish Boy” and the Hendrix original, “Lover Man.” The Jimi Hendrix Experience, which features drummer Mitch Mitchell & bassist Noel Redding, is represented with the previously unreleased April 1969 recordings of “Stepping Stone,” “Jungle,” “Cherokee Mist”, which features Jimi on both electric guitar and sitar, as well as the January 1968 recording of “Sweet Angel.”
Also included is a September 1969 collaboration with Stephen Stills on a version of Joni Mitchell’s “Woodstock” that pre-dates the Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young recording. Stills also contributed “$20 Fine,” an original song that featured Hendrix on multiple guitars, Mitch Mitchell on drums, Stills on organ and lead vocals, and Duane Hitchings of Buddy Miles Express on piano.
The album also features a collaboration between Hendrix, Johnny Winter on guitar, backed by Billy Cox, and drummer Dallas Taylor of CSNY performing Guitar Slim’s “Things I Used To Do.”
