Experience Hendrix: The Best Of Jimi Hendrix (1997)
A compilation created by Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., for

MCA Records, Inc. in 1998.
Peaked at the 133rd spot on The Billboard 200 charts in

1998.
       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. In fact, some of these cuts

recall Hendrix's history with the Isley Brothers, but done his way, with the range of sounds that he was

generating in 1970. The disc concludes with the obligatory live version of "The Star Spangled Banner"

from Woodstock, which is of massive historical and cultural importance. Where it falls short is by

leaving out "Can You See Me," "Manic Depression," and "Remember," which are on Smash Hits -- it's

a pity because the presence of two of those cuts (which, in fairness, can be found on Are You

Experienced?) would make this compilation perfect in most respects.
