The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Jimi Hendrix, an American guitarist and singer-songwriter, appeared in several commercially released films of concerts and documentaries about his career, including two popular 1960s music festival films – Monterey Pop (1968) and Woodstock (1970). A short documentary, Experience (1968), also known as See My Music Talking, was also screened. At the time of his death, two concert films were in development. Jimi Plays Berkeley (1971) was the first film featuring Hendrix to be issued posthumously.
