Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix

Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix is the definitive career-spanning compilation of Jimi Hendrix's best known music from 1966 to 1970.

Issued in Europe in 1997, it saw North American release a year later. A healthy seller, it reached #10 in the UK and #133 in the US where it ultimately went platinum. It is noted as one of the most successful posthumous greatest hits albums ever released for any single artist or otherwise.
