On March 9, classic rock fans will be able to experience Both Sides of the Sky, a new Jimi Hendrix album featuring 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970 — a full 10 of which have never before been released. 

The set marks the third volume in a trilogy of albums intended to present the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in the music legend’s archive.

Both Sides of the Sky was co-produced by Eddie Kramer, who served as recording engineer on every Jimi Hendrix album made during the artist’s life. In this exclusive interview, Kramer describes to Yahoo Entertainment the process of working on such a special project. “When we were doing our research and digging through the archives, we came across all these gems,” he raves. “It’s fabulous material.”

“Jimi’s true home was the studio; that’s where the music and the magic happened,” he notes. “He loved everything about recording, and it’s been my distinct pleasure and an honor to play a part in that process both then and now.”
