Hear Jimi Hendrix’s unheard take on Muddy Waters’ Mannish Boy

Due in March is a ‘new’ Jimi Hendrix album Both Sides of the Sky and today Sony Legacy preview the record with a listen to Mannish Boy, one of ten previously unreleased tracks on the long-player.

Mannish Boy was originally written and recorded by Muddy Waters in 1955 and here Jimi Hendrix reworks it with his ‘Band of Gypsys’ (Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox, drummer Buddy Miles). This was cut during their first ever recording session on April 22, 1969 at the Record Plant in New York.

Both Sides of the Sky follows Valleys of Neptune (2010) and People, Hell and Angels (2013) – it’s the final volume in a trilogy of albums that present significant unreleased Hendrix material from the vault.

The album will be released on CD and as a numbered 2LP vinyl edition on 9 March 2018.
