Both Sides of the Sky is the third volume in a trilogy of albums intended to present the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the Jimi Hendrix archive. It follows Valleys of Neptune (2010) and People, Hell and Angels (2013), which both achieved top 5 chart ranking on Billboard’s Top 100. Recorded between January 1968 and February 1970, the album features guest appearances by Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter and Lonnie Youngblood. The project was co-produced by Eddie Kramer, Jimi Hendrix’s recording engineer on all of his albums made during his life, along with Janie Hendrix and John McDermott.
Both Sides of the Sky is available now for pre-order.
