Title - 'Lover Man / Foxy Lady' (Limited Vinyl Single)
Artist - Jimi Hendrix
On March 9th, 2018, Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, proudly release Both Sides of the Sky, a dynamic new Jimi Hendrix album featuring 13 studio recordings made between 1968 and 1970.
Released ahead, and as a teaser to the incredible double 180 gram vinyl LP, this brilliant Limited Edition (500) 7" Single, 'Lover Man' is just perfect for all avid collectors of vinyl.
Recorded on December 15th, 1969, the B-Side is a live version of 'Foxy Lady,' recorded November 10th, 1967 in the Netherlands.
With regard the A-Side, 'Lover Man's story is that just two weeks before their triumphant New Year's concerts at the Fillmore East in NYC [yielding both 1970's Band Of Gypsys and 2016's sequel Machine Gun], Hendrix gathered with Cox and Miles to cut this dynamic rendition of what had become a favorite concert staple.
A killer, funky to the core, blues track with Billy Cox on bass and Mitch Mitchell on drums, 'Lover Man' has one of the tightest, and yet tempestuous grooves that I've ever heard!
This exclusive 7" single vinyl release is backed elegantly with the previously unreleased live version of 'Foxy Lady'. Produced by Janie Hendrix, John McDermott and Eddie Kramer, this version (featuring Band Of Gypsys), was seen as the strongest recorded version.
