Inside Jimi Hendrix’s New Album

Much of the music that Jimi Hendrix tracked in the late Sixties has come out on posthumous albums, beginning with 1971’s The Cry of Love, which contained songs that Hendrix had mixed with his go-to engineer Eddie Kramer. Since the mid-Nineties, Kramer and Hendrix’s estate have painstakingly trawled the vaults for previously unreleased gems. They issued the first of three compilations, Valleys of Neptune, in 2010 and followed it up with People, Hell and Angels three years later. Now they’ve slated a final volume, Both Sides of the Sky – which highlights the many changes in Hendrix’s working life as he played with different configurations of musicians between 1968 and 1970 – for a March release.
