Early recordings of Jimi Hendrix made between 1965 and 1967 have been acquired by the Hendrix family’s music company, Experience Hendrix LLC, and Sony Music’s catalog division, Legacy Recordings.

The 88 studio recordings that Hendrix made during his stint with the R&B group Curtis Knight and the Squires have been the subject of lengthy litigation between the Hendrix family and onetime rights holder Ed Chalpin, who produced the sessions, reports Rolling Stone.

The recordings include a live performance recorded in Hackensack, New Jersey in December 1965, as well as Curtis Knight and the Squires’ recordings with Hendrix in 1967.

Hendrix’s long-time sound engineer Eddie Kramer will oversee the reissues, which will be released by Legacy Recordings over the next three years.
