Hendrix’s Band of Gypsys concerts have become the stuff of legend. Fans have been given various highlights into their four Fillmore shows from 1969/70, but now the picture is to be completed with the release of a lavish new box set, ‘Songs For Groovy Children’.
Following the dissolution of the Jimi Hendrix Experience after just three albums, Hendrix formed a new group with Buddy Miles on drums and his old army pal Billy Cox taking on bass duties. The Band of Gypsys made their debut at The Fillmore East on New Years Eve 1969. That day, they played two shows; two further shows followed on New Years Day.
