Recorded between January 1968 and February 1970, Jimi Hendrix’s desire to push the boundaries of blues music can be heard throughout Both Sides of the Sky.
The album highlights Jimi’s mastery of studio production and his increasing use of these facilities as a proving ground for new sounds, material, and techniques.
“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.
