Both Sides of the Sky, the acclaimed third volume in a trilogy of posthumous Jimi Hendrix releases has debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200 as well as achieving #3 on both the Top Current Albums and the Top Rock Albums charts. It has also reached the Top 10 in the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium and Austria.
Released on March 9 by Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings, Both Sides of the Sky is the final instalment in the trilogy of albums intended to present the best, most compelling of Hendrix’s previously unissued studio recordings. It joins the first two albums in the trilogy in the upper echelons of the Billboard albums chart – Valleys of Neptune which peaked at #4 in 2010 and People, Hell and Angels which reached the #2 spot in 2013.
Recorded between January 1968 and February 1970, Both Sides of the Sky contains 13 studio recordings including 10 previously unreleased tracks and it features guest appearances by Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter and Lonnie Youngblood. The project was co-produced by Eddie Kramer, Jimi Hendrix’s recording engineer for all his albums made during his lifetime, along with Janie Hendrix (sister of the late legend) and John McDermott.
