Hendrix' "Band Of Gypsys" Box Set Due Out In November

It seems the Jimi Hendrix Archive is a bottomless well of material. Another massive collection is due out November 22nd. The legendary Band Of Gypsys featuring his then, new trio of drummer/vocalist Buddy Miles and bassist Billy Cox performed some legendary shows New Year's Eve 1969 and New Year's Day '70. All four sets will be available in their entirety, commercially for the first time. Songs for Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts will include five-CD or eight-LP's.

In 1970 Band Of Gypsys was released with just a handful of tracks culled from those shows with some songs cut for time purposes. So this time around fans will be able to listen to all four sets, uncut and uninterrupted thanks to new mixes/mastering from Engineer Eddie Kramer. This being a box set, there's bound to be tons of unearthed liner notes, photographs and commentary form those that were there.
