Jimi Hendrix will release a collection of four historic debut concerts with the Band Of Gypsys in a new box set entitled “Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts.”
The CD and digital release is due November 22, with a vinyl release to follow on December 13. The box set delivers over two dozen live tracks by Hendrix, bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles that have either never before been released commercially or have been newly-pressed and newly-remixed for the 2019 set. The band performed four concerts over the course of two evenings – December 31, 1968 and January 1, 1970.
“Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts” is being previewed with a video trailer (linked here) and audio of the previously-unreleased track, “Message To Love,” (linked here) from the second New Year’s Eve performance on the collection.
