Jimi Hendrix Both Sides Of The Sky - 180gm - Sealed UK 2-LP vinyl record set (Double LP Album)
|Tracklisting / Additional Info:
About Both Sides of the Sky tracks:-
The Band of Gypsys uptempo reworking of Muddy Waters' "Mannish Boy" opens the album and sets the tempo for what follows.
"Lover Man" was a favored Hendrix original and the guitarist was determined to realize a finished master. Previous attempts by the original Experience had yet to yield this for Hendrix but this December 1969 effort by the Band Of Gypsys - complete with its homage to the popular Batman theme song - was his strongest effort to date.
"Hear My Train A Comin'"
Features drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding from the original Jimi Hendrix Experience. This original blues composition had become a staple of Hendrix's concerts. This previously unreleased April 1969 recording captured the furious power and dynamic tension that made the song so memorable.
A totally unique take on this Hendrix favorite, with Jimi showcasing blues and country-style licks atop a relentless, galloping beat.
"Woodstock" and "$20 Fine"
Both featuring Stephen Stills and recorded before the hit Crosby, Stills & Nash version of "Woodstock" was released. $20 Fine featured Hendrix on multiple guitars, Mitchell on drums, Stills on organ and lead vocals and Duane Hitchings (Buddy Miles Express) on piano.
"Power of Soul"
This 1970 studio session came three weeks after the Band of Gypsys concerts at the Fillmore East. While a live version remains one of the highpoints of Band of Gypsys, Hendrix never realized a studio version during his lifetime. For this album, we present the mix that Hendrix and Kramer prepared of the complete song at Electric Lady on August 22, 1970.
The influence of Curtis Mayfield can be heard here as Jimi expands on the "Villanova Junction Blues" theme he made famous by its inclusion in the 1970 Woodstock documentary.
"Things I Used To Do"
Another of the album's unique band creations sees Jimi Hendrix and Johnny Winter on guitar, backed by Billy Cox and drummer Dallas Taylor of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. An excerpt of their rendition of Guitar Slim's "Things I Used To Do" was initially heard as part of a 1990 nationally syndicated radio program and accompanying box set, but here it is presented in full, newly mixed by Eddie Kramer for Both Sides of The Sky.
Hendrix is reunited with his old bandmate Lonnie Youngblood (vocals/sax) from his pre-fame days in Curtis Knight & The Squires. Briefly issued as part of the 2008 Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues series but out of print for nearly a decade, this special recording is once more available to Hendrix fans throughout the world on all audio formats.
With Axis: Bold As Love only just released, Hendrix immediately turned his focus to recording what would become Electric Ladyland. This gorgeous, instrumental reading of "Angel," features Hendrix on guitar, bass and vibraphone joined by Mitch Mitchell.
"Send My Love To Linda"
A superb new Hendrix original composition recorded with Cox and Miles in the aftermath of their successful Band of Gypsys performances at the Fillmore East.
"Cherokee Mist" (which features Hendrix on both electric guitar and sitar)
Together with drummer Mitch Mitchell, Hendrix created this moody, evocative original complete with his playing a sitar to complement his traditional electric guitar.
