The Rolling Stones used a studio in 1974 following a Led Zeppelin session. Jimmy Page decided to hang around and contributed to the track Scarlet. Mick Jagger recently rediscovered the track and included it on the 2020 rerelease of the Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup album.
Fifty years later, they’re still finding new music from Jimi Hendrix. Bring it!
The first single from the album Both Sides of the Sky, the new Jimi Hendrix album coming March 9, 2018. Both Sides Of The Sky is the final volume in a trilogy of albums (with 2010’s Valleys of Neptune and 2013’s People, Hell and Angels) intended to present the best and most significant unissued studio recordings remaining in Jimi Hendrix’s archive. The album features appearances by Stephen Stills, Johnny Winter, and Lonnie Youngblood and includes 10 studio tracks that have never seen release. It will be available on CD, digital, and as a numbered 180-gram audiophile vinyl 2LP.

Great to hear that The Eagles will continue working with the addition of Deacon Frey and Vince Gill.
In my classic rock deejay days, radio stations celebrated weekends with “block parties,” sets of three connected songs.
Here’s today’s 3-pack. The connective thread is “dead.”
R.L. Burnside, quite thoroughly dead but his tune lives on as my theme music on The Terry Meiners Show on 840WHAS
Faith Hill & Tim McGraw opened a terrific show in Louisville with this George Michael (dead) and Aretha Franklin (dead sense of humor) duet from 1986.
Prince has been dead for a year and his greedy relatives are still fighting over who gets what. The NFL packaged a beautiful retelling of Prince’s eclectic 2007 Super Bowl performance.
Of course, the coolest deejays would throw in an extra song. Here’s my on-point offering – brand new from Willie Nelson.
Now it comes down to a horse race. Who goes first, Willie or Keith Richards?
