In celebration of the release of a new Jimi Hendrix compilation, blues guitar legend Buddy Guy called upon Billy Cox and the Experience Hendrix Band to perform on Tuesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Guy and company delivered a rendition of “Red House”, originally written by Hendrix for the Experience’s 1967 debut album, Are You Experienced?Every few years, rock aficionados are treated to another collection of unreleased Jimi Hendrix studio recordings. 13 new studio compilations have been released since the incomparable guitarist’s untimely death, which is ten more than the three albums he released with the Jimi Hendrix Experience during his lifetime. The latest addition to his posthumous catalog—and the third volume in a trilogy of releases that includes 2010’s Valleys of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell and Angels—is a compilation titled Both Sides Of The Sky, released last week via Legacy Recordings.Bassist Billy Cox, who was a member of several of Jimi Hendrix’s bands including Band of Gypsys and is featured on Both Sides Of The Sky, led the Experience Hendrix Band through the blues number with perfection, while Buddy Guy added his signature wail and guitar stabs throughout. Listen to Buddy Guy with Billy Cox and the Experience Hendrix Band perform “Red House” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! below:Buddy Guy w/ Billy Cox and the Experience Hendrix Band – “Red House” – Jimmy Kimmel Live![Video: Jimmy Kimmel Live]Both Sides Of The Sky was compiled from a number of studio outtakes recorded while Hendrix was working on a follow-up to Electric Ladyland between January 1968 and February 1970. Hendrix’s Band of Gypsies collaborators Buddy Miles (drums) and Billy Cox (bass) join him for most of the tracks, though his Experience bandmates Mitch Mitchell (drums) and Noel Redding (bass) can be heard on one of the tunes.Additionally, the release features appearances by Stephen Stills—who joins Hendrix for his own “$20 Fine” as well as a rendition of Joni Mitchell‘s “Woodstock”—and another effort with Johnny Winter, who contributes his chops to a cover of Guitar Slim’s “Things I Used To Do”. Saxophonist Lonnie Youngblood also helps out with a lengthy take on the Hendrix rarity “Georgia Blues”. Learn more, and listen to the full album here.
