When Jimi Hendrix passed away nearly 50 years ago at 27, he left in his wake only three studio albums with The Jimi Hendrix Experience, live recordings capturing his set at the Monterey Pop Festival and his earth-shifting Woodstock performance, and a live album from his post-Experience trio, Band of Gypsys - recorded at the Fillmore East on New Year’s Eve of 1969 and New Year’s Day of 1970. 

It’s hard to overstate how Hendrix’s scant discography fundamentally changed the way we approach the electric guitar - which is why it’s a truly monumental thing when unheard Hendrix music is released.
