As we slowly approach the fiftieth anniversary of his passing (on September 18, 1970), the release of a “new” Jimi Hendrix’ album is still a noteworthy event. The last part of a trilogy including Valleys Of Neptune (2010) and People, Hell and Angels (2013), Both Sides Of The Sky contains thirteen titles recorded between January 28, 1968 and February 3, 1970. And, just like the two previous compilations, it is mostly comprised of alternatives takes or very rare tracks already present in the massive “official” discography of the left-handed guitarist. The idea is thus not to only aim for the adepts of the Hendrixian cult, but to create a new following with first-rate material. It is even what is the most remarkable here: the sound is incredibly modern, as if the musician had passed away only last week after having recorded these few tracks.


Even with what could be considered as first drafts—like the instrumental Jungle, Sweet Angel or Cherokee Mist—or these umpteenth versions of Hear My Train A Comin’ or Stepping Stone deserve attentive listening. But what will please the most demanding fans are those few gems that we lost hope of hearing someday. Especially with two additional tracks out of the sessions from September 30, 1970 at the Record Plant Studio in New York with his friends Stephen Stills: an ultra-powerful Woodstock, which precedes by many months the recording of this great classic by Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and a surprising $20 Fine. Among the other cherries on top of this cake lovingly cooked by Janie Hendrix and the producer Eddie Kramer, you will find other meetings at the top of blues or R&B, with Johnny Winter, The Things I Used To Do, Lonnie Youngblood, Georgia Blues, and a few testimonies of the intense and much too ephemeral Band Of Gypsy, Power Of Soul, Lover Man and most of all the magnificent recreation of the timeless Mannish Boy from Muddy Waters. In the end, Both Sides Of The Sky will become one of the unmissable albums from the Voodoo Child, which will be recommended to everyone, from the expert to the merely curious (but who won’t stay that way for long…). © Jean-Pierre Sabouret/Qobuz

In your panoramas...
The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus

What a difference 50 years can make! By early 1969 rock music had become a leading cultural force: The Who had just recorded Tommy; Cream packed Royal Albert Hall for their farewell concert; Janis Joplin became a solo act; Led Zeppelin performed for the first time. And after four months of recording, The Beatles (aka The White Album) was out and climbing the charts. To understate the obvious, rock music was awash in talent and standards were high.

And then Nirvana Killed Rock

In 1987, Nirvana was born: the most unexpected punk swerve of the end of the 20th century. A rocketing career, international hits, hordes of fans and a tragic epilogue for this worldwide phenomenon. And what if Kurt Cobain’s band was none other than the last band in the history of rock? The ultimate generational phenomenon of genre, if not its last myth.

Grunge in 10 Albums

Around thirty years ago, Seattle became the epicenter of the rock scene, largely thanks to grunge music. The grungy, ‘I don’t care’ attitude rose from the ashes of punk, heavy metal and alt-rock, and instantaneously went from an underground movement to a worldwide success. Perhaps too quickly embraced by the very system it rebuffed, it almost became a caricature of itself by the end of the 1990s. Let’s look back at ten albums that defined the genre.
