Jimi Hendrix

Posted on 24 November 2019 by Brian Walsh

Legacy Recordings has shared a previously-unreleased recording of Jimi Hendrix’s “Ezy Ryder.”

This unreleased version of “Ezy Ryder” was recorded during a New Year’s eve 1969 performance at New York City’s The Fillmore East. It was for the second time that Band Of Gypsies had played “Ezy Ryder” that day.

Legacy Recordings is also set to release a 24-track live album box set chronicling Jimi Hendrix’s four performances at The Fillmore East on New Year’s Eve 1969 and New Year’s Day 1970 with Band Of Gypsies.

The previously-announced archive release, titled Songs For Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts, will feature Hendrix’s live performances of “Hear My Train A-Comin’,” “Machine Gun,” “Fire,” “Foxey Lady,” and more.

“I distinctly remember you could see people with their mouths hanging wide open about five, six, 10 rows,” bassist Billy Cox said to Rolling Stone. “They had never heard anything like that, but evidently it had sounded good to them, because we got almost a standing ovation after every song.”
