On this day in music history: March 25, 1970 – “Band Of Gypsys” by Jimi Hendrix & The Band Of Gypsys is released (UK release date is on June 12, 1970). Produced by Heaven Research (aka Hendrix), it is recorded live at the Fillmore East in New York City on December 31, 1969 – January 1, 1970. It features Hendrix with bassist Billy Cox and drummer Buddy Miles performing as The Band Of Gypsys, formed in the wake of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s dissolution. The legendary live set features mostly new material and is originally released through Capitol Records to fulfill an old contractual obligation. However, the band is short lived, breaking up after a gig at Madison Square Garden on January 28, 1970 that goes awry with Hendrix leaving the stage after playing only two songs. An expanded two CD version of the album is released in 1999 along with a documentary film titled “Band of Gypsys: Live at the Fillmore East” featuring the original black and white video footage shot by a fan in the audience. “Band Of Gypsys” peaks at number five on the Billboard Top 200, and is certified Platinum in the US by the RIAA.
