Consisting of live material recorded at venues ranging from the Berkeley Community Theatre and the San Diego Sports Arena to the Isle of Wight Festival, Hendrix In The West captures the guitarist exploring new directions in sound during 1969-70. Robert Christgau, the Dean of American Rock Critics, called Hendrix's versions of "Red House" and, "Johnny B. Goode" on this album "definitive." Out of print in the US since 1974 and for more than two decades internationally, Hendrix In The West has remained one of the most requested albums by fans to return to the commercial marketplace.
Hendrix In The WestHendrix In The West will also be available on 12" vinyl as a 2 LP set.

Jimi Hendrix: The Dick Cavett Show - DVD
The complete collection of Jimi Hendrix's celebrated appearances on The Dick Cavett Show is now available on Legacy Recordings. The Dick Cavett Show marked Jimi's US network television debut and this special documentary, directed by multiple Grammy Award winner Bob Smeaton [Beatles Anthology, Band Of Gypsys], features complete live performances of "Izabella", "Machine Gun", and "Hear My Train A Comin'" as well as new interviews with Cavett, Experience band members Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox, and others. Jimi's own insightful interviews with Cavett touched upon a variety of personal and professional issues ranging from his stint as a US Army paratrooper to his celebrated rendition of the "Star Spangled Banner" at the Woodstock Festival. These conversations with Cavett helped reveal the humor, passion, and intelligence of the man behind such rock classics as Are You Experienced and Electric Ladyland.
This deluxe edition also includes a new, behind the scenes documentary. The Dick Cavett Show DVD runs 90 minutes total.

This year's edition of the Experience Hendrix concert tour, presented by Fender Musical Instruments, recently completed a limited run of select dates in May with an all-star lineup of musical greats paying homage to the abiding genius of Jimi Hendrix. This year's tour included performances by Billy Cox, Steve Vai, Robert Randolph, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, David Hidalgo & Cesar Rosas [Los Lobos], Keb' Mo', Eric Johnson, North Mississippi All Stars, Brad Whitford [Aerosmith], Living Colour, Ernie Isley, Chris Layton [Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble], Mato [Indigenous] with other special guests. The Orange County Register, in its review of Experience Hendrix at the 2011 Doheny Blues Festival, called it "...overwhelmingly strong, even inspired, an Electric Church encounter that one likes to think would have made Jimi proud."
Massively popular with fans and critics alike, the 2010 Experience Hendrix tour inspired
Larry Rodgers of the Arizona Republic to rave, "It was encouraging to see fans of all ages, from teens to baby boomers who witnessed Hendrix's career launch firsthand, in the Mesa crowd. The show and that crowd made it clear that Hendrix's magical music will never die."
Dan Durchholz, covering the tour for the St. Louis Post Dispatch marveled at how "...the Experience Hendrix tour showed just how pervasive (Hendrix's) influence continues to be. The three-hour show featured an all-star lineup from a variety of musical traditions, united by a collective debt to the iconic artist's songs, showmanship and trailblazing technique. Despite its creator's demise decades ago, Hendrix's music is still alive and well."
Experience Hendrix bassist Billy Cox -- who first befriended Hendrix in the 101st Airborne Division of U.S. Army, played in both the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Band of Gypsys and performed with Hendrix at such landmark festivals as Woodstock and the Isle of Wight -- is delighted to play a part in the current tour saying, "It's a thrill for me to play Jimi's music for audiences now as it was in the 1960s."
