Description by OLDIES.com:

In 1967, British photographer Gered Mankowitz had the opportunity to photograph the Jimi Hendrix Experience in two sessions at Mankowitz's legendary Masons Yard studio. Hendrix had just recorded his BBC sessions, taking London by storm and was on his way to establishing himself as the most influential and charismatic rock star of the decade.

Considered by many as the finest photographs ever taken of Hendrix and The Experience, these extraordinary images, both solo portraits of Hendrix as well as group shots, capture the musician and his band at the defining moment in their brief but spectacular career. As a testimony to their enduring quality, Mankowitz's images were selected as the covers for all of Jimi Hendrix's classic recordings that were rereleased in 1993, including the greatest hits album Jimi Hendrix: The Ultimate Experience.

The Experience: Jimi Hendrix at Masons Yard is the first complete collection of Mankowitz's two Masons Yard sessions with Hendrix and The Experience. Accompanied by essays from journalist rock historian Richie Unterberger, author of the 'Rough Guide' music series, The Experience is a complete and unprecedented look at Hendrix during the peak of his revolutionary career.
