2010 eight vinyl LP box set that tracks Jimi's incredible journey from R&B sideman to international acclaim.
This collection presents the most sought after of Jimi's pre-Experience recordings as a sideman for such Rhythm & Blues stars as the Isley Brothers, Don Covay, Little Richard and others. The remaining three CDs feature previously unreleased and commercially unavailable studio recordings from every chapter of his career, live recordings with the Experience and Band of Gypsy's spanning 1967 through 1970. The studio recordings include never before released [or even bootlegged!] alternate versions of classics plus a previously unreleased version of 'Everlasting First', Jimi's 1970 celebrated collaboration with Arthur Lee & Love, an unheard 1967 studio session with Traffic's Dave Mason as well as an expanded presentation of Jimi's legendary session with jazz organist Larry Young.
