Today, Spinner is proud to premiere the new version of "Izabella," a song that Hendrix tinkered with toward the end of his life. The track heard below was recorded in New York City on Aug. 28 1969, 10 days after Jimi closed out Woodstock with a stunning morning set. The band here was the same as Gypsy Sun and Rainbows, his name for the live lineup at the festival: Mitch Mitchell on drums, Billy Cox on bass, Jerry Velez and Juma Sultan on percussion, and Larry Lee -- a recently returned Vietnam veteran who was an old army buddy of Cox and Hendrix's -- on rhythm guitar.
Check out the funky track below and pick up People, Hell and Angels on March 5 via Legacy Recordings.
