Forty-seven years after his untimely death at age 27, a posthumous Jimi Hendrix album has been announced, featuring 10 previously unreleased recordings.
The 13-track Both Sides Of The Sky will be released on March 9 via Sony Legacy, and features a recording of Joni Mitchell‘s Woodstock, alongside collaborations with Stephen Stills, Lonnie Youngblood, Jonny Winter, and Billy Cox and Buddy Miles from Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys line-up.
The new release compiles material recorded between January 1968 and February 1970, and is the final part of a trilogy of archival releases for Hendrix, following 2013’s People, Hell and Angels and 2010’s Valleys of Neptune.
Eddie Kramer, who worked as an engineer on every Hendrix album made during the artist’s lifetime, said in an interview that he was blown away as he worked on the new album.
“The first thing is you put the tape on and you listen to it and the hairs just stand up right on the back of your neck and you go, ’Oh my God. This is too (expletive) incredible,” said Kramer.
“It’s an incredible thing. Forty, 50 years later here we are and I’m listening to these tapes going, ‘Oh my God, that’s an amazing performance.’”
Hendrix died in 1970 at age 27.
