Jimi HendrixI’ve always been wary of posthumous Jimi Hendrix releases based on the number of duds made available over the years. However, since Hendrix’s engineer Eddie Kramer’s involvement in the restoration of the guitarist’s music, each new release is a must-have.

These 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970 find Hendrix and both his bands – The Experience and Band Of Gypsies – with guests including Johnny Winter and Stephen Stills (at the top of their game), reinventing Muddy Waters’ Mannish Boy, Joni Mitchell’s Woodstock, Guitar Slim’s Things I Used To Do, and Hendrix originals Hear My Train A Comin’ and Cherokee Mist, with the legend on electric guitar and sitar.

Both Sides Of The Sky is out now via Sony.
