Maybe The Best One Disc Compilation To Experience Hendrix,
This review is from: Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix (Audio CD)
This one disk (family approved) compilation was released by MCA Records in 1997, during his lifetime between 1967 - 1970 he released three studio albums and a live LP (mainly original material) called Band Of Gypsys which was the name of his new backing band after The Experience disbanded.
The tracks on this compilation were lifted from the three studio albums and a family approved posthumous '4th', First Rays Of The New Rising Sun which was released in 1997 but slated for 1970, the only covers on here are Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" and The Leaves "Hey Joe"
A quarter of the songs on here are not good, or did not click with me, hence my 4 star rating, are far as I know any released Hendrix music pre-1997 was not then owned or approved by his family, but if you want a 1 disk compilation of Jimi Hendrix this is maybe the best one to go for, take note, another edition of this same compilation has an extra bonus CD
