Every weekday around 9:30, we pull one out of the attic. In case you are new, the Attic is a mythical place where, in the 70′s, we were “enlightened” by great music…and other stuff.
Band of Gypsys is a funk rock band led by Jimi Hendrix and backed by Billy Cox and Buddy Miles.
Hendrix formed the band after the dissolution of The Jimi Hendrix Experience.
Band of Gypsys is also the band's eponymous live album recorded on two separate nights, 31 December 1969 and 1 January 1970, at the Fillmore East. Released just three months before his death in 1970, it was the last album Hendrix himself authorized, and the only Hendrix-authorized album to be released on Capitol Records
