In 1966, Jimi Hendrix burst on to the London music scene, blowing away the likes of the Beatles, Eric Clapton, and the Rolling Stones. There was simply no one else with Hendrix's blend of emotion and toughness: a blues sensibility filtered through the latest electronic effects. This collection of images follows Hendrix's career from the earliest London shows and the 1967 tours to 1968-69.
