Jimi Hendrix: An Illustrated Experience is a biography of legendary American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, written by his stepsister Janie and his biographer John McDermott, and published on October 9, 2007.[1] The book tells the story of Hendrix and his life through reproductions of rare material such as letters, drawings, postcards and posters. An Illustrated Experience also contains a companion CD entitled Hendrix: Live, which includes three live tracks, two interviews, and a studio jam entitled "Keep on Groovin'".


The focus of An Illustrated Experience is on the interactive features used to tell Hendrix's life story. Authors Janie Hendrix and John McDermott both work for Experience Hendrix, L.L.C., the exclusive copyright holder to all Hendrix material, and so had exclusive access to the family archives when compiling the book, allowing them to reproduce rare first-hand Hendrix memorabilia such as handwritten lyrics, drawings and postcards, from various periods throughout his life. The companion CD also aims to give an insight into the musician's life as it includes a studio jam running for over twenty minutes, featuring many unsorted parts of future songs.

Hendrix: Live

Hendrix: Live consists mainly of material from The Jimi Hendrix Experience's concert at Clark University on March 15, 1968; namely the performances of "Fire", "Red House" and "Foxy Lady", as well as the pre- and post-concert interviews. The final track on the disc is a jam session from Record Plant Studios in November 1969 entitled "Keep on Groovin'", which featured Hendrix and drummer Buddy Miles laying down the groundwork for some of the many songs they were working on, including "Power of Soul", "Burning Desire" and "Stepping Stone". This recording was previously issued as part of 2000's Morning Symphony Ideas.
