Originally named Johnny Allen by his mother, his father later changed his name to James Marshall Hendrix. Many years later his manager Chas Chandler would suggest changing his name to Jimi. Jimi started playing the guitar as a young teenager and picked up influences from Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran and others. In the early to mid-60s, under the psuedonym Jimmy James, Jimi worked with the top RnB artists of the day including Sam Cooke, Wilson Pickett, B.B. King, Little Richard, Ike and Tina Turner, The Isley Brothers and many more. In 1965 he struck out on his own in New York City under the name Jimmy James and the Blue Flames. In 1966 Chas Chandler convinced Jimi to move to London where he hooked up with Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding to form The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The Experience's first album, Are You Experienced, was a blast of Brtish psychedelic pop-rock, with the emphasis on hard rock with some jazzy Canterbury type numbers as well. The next two albums would reveal a bit more of Jimi's American roots, while also expanding his progressive song writing tendencies. In early 1968, songs like 1983 and Burning the Midnight Lamp put The Experience on the forefront of rock composition and execution. Meanwhile Jimi's innovative skills as a producer and sculptor of pure sound began to take flight. As a live performance band, The Experience could not be touched as they revolutionised the world of rock with their explosive performances. In 1969 Jimi dropped his fascination with all things British and started an American blues/rock band with Buddy Miles and Billy Cox called Band of Gypsys. Although on the surface this band would seem to be less progressive than The Experience, on another level Hendrix was taking his guitar playing and the art of rock improvisation to new heights. On the live version of Machine Gun, Hendrix transforms the blues into a trance-like mystical requim for those who have died in war. Toward the end of his life the always restless Hendrix was turning to the blossoming world of jazz-rock/fusion, a genre that he and Mitchell had helped create and promote. Some of the projects he was working on included a Canterbury styled prog/fusion band with Bo Hanson, a psychedlic jazz/fusion band with Larry Young, Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell, and a revamped Experience also with Mitchell and Cox. A project with Miles Davis was in the works when Jimi died in his sleep at the age of 27.
Recorded Live At The Royal Albert Hall, London On 24th February 1969.
