A Necessary Experience for Every Music Lover with a Turntable: 20-Track Collection The Best of Jimi Hendrix on Vinyl 2LP Includes the Guitarist's Most Monumental Songs and Influential Staples
Over a meteoric 4-year period from 1966-1970, Jimi Hendrix evolved from a little known itinerant sideman to such R&B legends as Little Richard & the Isley Brothers into an international icon and archetypal pop-rock superstar, a visionary genius and force of nature whose effect on music, fashion and culture is still palpable fifty years after Are You Experienced changed how the world heard music.
2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's debut album Are You Experienced (released on May 12, 1967) as well as follow up album Axis: Bold as Love (released in the UK on December 1, 1967). 1967 was also the year Jimi rose to intercontinental prominence, when he made his U.S. debut at the Monterey International Pop Music Festival, lighting his guitar on fire to a mesmerized audience.
This 20-track, platinum-selling collection features some of the most influential and enduring rock classics ever recorded. Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix captures the lion's share of the trailblazing artist's finest including "Purple Haze," "All Along the Watchtower," "The Wind Cries Mary," "Hey Joe," "Little Wing," "Foxey Lady," "Voodoo Child," and "Manic Depression" plus Jimi's live adaptation of "Star Spangled Banner" from the original 1969 Woodstock Music & Art Fair.
