4 stars Both Sides of the Sky is a 13 track release of studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970. Of these 13 songs, 10 have never been published (or at least authorized to be or as such). This album is the third release launched by Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings of a trilogy of posthumously released recordings intended as a "true to life" follow-up to Electric Ladyland (1968), starting with Valleys of Neptune (2010), and People, Hell and Angels (2013).

Well! Enough info. I was kind of surprised by the fireworks and parades which preceded Valleys of Neptune and People, Hell and Angels and the complete oblivion of this one, which is to me what those first two were for the rest, it never gets old.

Anyway, this is a very coherent compilation of Jimi Hendrix“s strong connection with his Blues/Rock roots which means, to my benefit, there are few funky music sections which I repell organically.

Accompanied by a modest guest star list with very modest one track or two appearances and as straightforward as only he did, Jimi Hendrix plays a masterclass of his perfect knowledge of the geographically diverse universe of Blues stylings, which is why maybe this album is/was not that popular, but do not feel discouraged it also features some doses of his unique experimental songwriting.

You have been forewarned.

****4 PA stars
