Experience Hendrix: The Best of Jimi Hendrix is a compilation album of Jimi Hendrix songs released in 1997. The single compact disc collects 20 songs spanning his career from his first recordings with the Jimi Hendrix Experience in 1966 to his last with Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell in 1970. It is the first comprehensive collection of Hendrix's songs overseen by Experience Hendrix, a family company that took over management of his recording legacy in 1997.
This compilation just misses being the perfect single-CD Jimi Hendrix anthology, and it's a crying shame because it comes so close. Its main virtue is that, in contrast to Smash Hits - the only compilation of Hendrix's work approved by the artist - it extends its reach past 1968. The last of the tracks come from the abortive First Rays of the New Rising Sun album, left unfinished at the time of his death, and show off a more R&B and soul-oriented sound than Hendrix was generally known for - and are worth the price of the disc by themselves.

This 20-song distillation of Hendrix’s short but expansive career is a solid introductory look at the man who redefined the electric guitar for rock n’ roll: psychedelic rockers ( Purple Haze, Manic Depression ), out-of-this world blues ( Red House, Voodoo Child (Slight Return) ), sensitive ballads ( The Wind Cries Mary, Castles Made of Sand ), plus The Star Spangled Banner from the 1969.
