Jimi and the Band Of Gypsys Debut at #4 with Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Ring in the holiday season with Jimi and the Band Of Gypsys. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (10″ Green Vinyl) debuted at #4 this week on the Billboard Overall Singles Chart! This newly minted (2010) special edition EP features Jimi’s incomparable rendition of “Little Drummer Boy / Silent Night / Auld Lang Syne.” This newly discovered instrumental recording was recorded December 19, 1969 during rehearsals for the Band Of Gypsys’ upcoming Fillmore East concerts. Also includes the bonus track featuring the hilariously funny “Three Little Bears,” a classic unavailable in the U.S.A. for nearly 25 years.
