During Jimi's lifetime there were only four albums that he officially sanctioned. However, since his untimely death in 1970, there have been hundreds of new titles released into the Hendrix marketplace. These official and unofficial posthumous releases contain live recordings, home demos, studio outtakes, jam sessions, television and radio performances, alternate mixes and performances with other musicians. This wealth of recordings can be quite confusing and misleading for the fans of Jimi's music. Thus, the purpose of Jimi Hendrix: Experience The Music is to make sense of Jimi's recorded legacy. This exhaustive work provides fans and collectors with the complete details of all of Jimi Hendrix's musical output and is the most comprehensive guide yet written on the recordings and films of Jimi. Nearly 650 titles (singles, LPs, compact discs, promotional releases, and bootlegs) are included in the discography - from the first studio recordings 1963 to the last recorded jam session in 1970. Every song ever recorded is listed and analyzed in the Song Index and includes over 4000 entries.
