The estate of Jimi Hendrix authorized the 1973 film to be re-released on video and DVD in 1999. An expanded DVD edition was issued in 2005, featuring a new documentary, From the Ukulele to the Strat , with more remembrances of Hendrix through interviews with family and friends, the making of " Dolly Dagger ", with producer-engineer Eddie Kramer breaking down the studio mix of the song and unreleased archive footage of a performance of " Stone Free " from the July 4, 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival.

With the help of Jimi 's step-sister Janie , Al set up Experience Hendrix to begin to get Jimi 's legacy in order. They began by hiring John McDermott and Jimi 's original engineer, Eddie Kramer to oversee the remastering process. They were able to find all the original master tapes, which had never been used for previous CD releases, and in April of 1997, Hendrix 's first three albums were reissued with drastically improved sound. Accompanying those reissues was a posthumous compilation album (based on Jimi 's handwritten track listings) called First Rays of the New Rising Sun , made up of tracks from the Cry of Love , Rainbow Bridge and War Heroes .

The Jimi Hendrix Experience made its first album in 1967. It was called Are You Experienced? When the album was being produced and sold, Hendrix travelled around the UK and some of Europe . On June 4, 1967, The Jimi Hendrix Experience played their last concert in London before going to America. In America many famous people came to see Hendrix play including Paul McCartney , George Harrison , Eric Clapton , Jack Bruce and Brian Epstein . [27]

It's genuinely hard to find anything to complain about from a genuinely iconic musician's legacy, yet despite this, I don't think that there's enough depth here that grabbed me beyond the casual listen. Every one has heard tracks like "If 6 was 9" and "Little Wing", so there's no surprise there, but the other songs come across as filler and jams. Maybe it's because I've heard the highlights of this album so many times on Jimi's "Greatest Hits". The few psychedelic pop songs leave me ambivalent, but luckily the warm sound of Jimi's R&B guitar outnumber those songs 2:1, and the hits of this album are legendary. So, a solid album that will probably grab some more than others, but is undeniably entertaining regardless.

Hendrix's work as an accompanist appears on several different labels. [2] After he became popular, Hendrix contributed to recordings by several different artists. [9] In addition to the legitimate singles and albums released before his death, two albums worth of demos and outtakes recorded with Curtis Knight with misleading cover art and titles were released, which Hendrix publicly denounced. [10] After his death, many more such albums appeared. [11]

Back in America, Jimi Hendrix built his own recording studio, Electric Lady Studios in New York City. The name of this project became the basis for his most demanding musical release, a two LP collection, Electric Ladyland . Throughout 1968, the demands of touring and studio work took its toll on the group and in 1969 the Experience disbanded.
