Fans of the iconic guitarist, singer, and songwriter Jimi Hendrix have a reason to get excited. A new album from the rock legend is on the horizon, set to be released later this fall.

Legacy Recordings has just announced the forthcoming arrival of “Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hollywood Bowl August 18, 1967.” This live recording from the acclaimed guitar maestro and his band is aptly named. And it’s expected to hit the shelves on November 10.

The new album contains a previously unreleased two-track live recording. This recording includes future classics like “Purple Haze,” “Fire,” and “Foxey Lady,” among others. In addition to his hits, Hendrix tips his hat to some of his musical idols on this recording. Reportedly, he will pay homage to The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Howlin’ Wolf, and Muddy Waters.

In anticipation of the entire album release, the first track from the set, “Killing Floor,” has been made available for everyone to enjoy.

This concert was preserved meticulously for over fifty years. It captures an amazing performance by the Jimi Hendrix Experience back when many people were still unfamiliar with their names. Live albums like this one are often released from recordings made after an artist has soared to stardom. But devoted fans yearn to hear everything from their favorites.

It’s worth noting that “Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hollywood Bowl August 18, 1967” was recorded less than a week before the release of their debut album, “Are You Experienced,” which is widely hailed as a classic rock masterpiece and one of Hendrix’s finest works.

According to the album’s description, as shared on Hendrix’s official Instagram page, this 1967 Hollywood Bowl concert is “notable for being one of the last times the band performed in front of an audience as relative unknowns.”

The Jimi Hendrix Experience, composed of the iconic trio of Jimi Hendrix on guitar and vocals, Noel Redding on bass, and Mitch Mitchell on drums, shared the bill that night with headliners The Mamas & The Papas, who were the bigger stars at the time.

Alongside the album, a new short documentary titled “Monterey Pop to the Hollywood Bowl” is being released. This film delves into Hendrix’s journey from Europe to the U.S., where the concert immortalized on this album occurred. The documentary features interviews with several notable figures and musicians from that era, including Michelle Phillips of The Mamas & The Papas and Brian Ray, best known as Paul McCartney’s longtime guitarist.
