“If you can just get your mind together…”Uncut’s latest Ultimate Music is dedicated to the life and work of Jimi Hendrix. In one of the most handsome and useful editions of this acclaimed series, you’ll find rare, cherishable Hendrix interviews, rediscovered in the NME and Melody Maker archives. Alongside them, we’ve put together an essential guide to one of rock’s most complicated catalogues: new reviews of the landmark albums made by Hendrix during his lifetime, and forensic guides to the often confusing albums released after his death.

“Nobody cages me,” Hendrix tells NME in 1969. Here, then, is the whole story of a genius and his legacy: from Club Wha? and The Scotch Of St James to Monterey and the Isle Of Wight, via riots in Zurich, go-kart tracks in Majorca, Electric Ladyland and a remote corner of Woodstock. Have you ever been experienced? Well, we have.
