Deze box is een re-issue van de set die oorspronkelijk in het jaar 2000 op de markt kwam, maar lange tijd niet leverbaar is geweest. De inhoud bestaat uit 60 niet eerder uitgebrachte concert- en studio-opnames uit de periode 1966 – 1970. Uniek materiaal, samengesteld en ge-remasterd door Eddie Kramer, op 4 CD’s, plus een 80 pagina’s tellend boek met zeldzame foto’s en gedetailleerde informatie over de tracks.

The Jimi Hendrix Experience

‘The Jimi Hendrix Experience’ box set (better known as ‘The Purple Box’) went gold and earned worldwide acclaim after its release in 2000. An expanded edition of the set, which includes four unreleased or hard-to-find tracks, will be released later this month.

The original four CDs covered Hendrix’s remarkably short career (the legendary guitarist died at the young age of 27 and released only three studio albums during his lifetime), starting with his first known recordings in October 1966 and ending with his final multi-track recording session at New York’s Electric Lady Studios in August 1970.

The new set contains everything from the 2000 release — such as alternate versions of classics like ‘Purple Haze,’ ‘Foxey Lady’ and ‘Little Wing,’ and previously unheard Hendrix music including ‘It’s Too Bad’ and ‘Country Blues’ — plus some unearthed gems die-hard fans will love.
The shiny new version of ‘The Jimi Hendrix Experience’ box set will be released on Aug. 20. You can check out the track listing of the 56 songs below and hear samples of each on Hendrix’s official website
