West Coast Seattle Boy - The Jimi Hendrix Anthology is the most complete collection of Jimi's pre-
Experience R&B performances (including his singles with the Isley Brothers, Little Richard, Don Covay, King
Curtis and more) to ever be officially anthologized, while bringing together the most comprehensive and
revelatory set of fully realized songs, never before heard live performances, alternate studio takes, acoustic and
electric demos, and other rarities drawn from every chapter of Jimi Hendrix's remarkable life and career.
The box set also includes Jimi Hendrix Voodoo Child, a new 90 minute documentary directed by the
multiple Grammy award winning Bob Smeaton (Beatles Anthology, Festival Express, Beatles: The Studio Recordings,
Band of Gypsys). An autobiographical journey told in the legendary musician's own words as read by Parliament-
Funkadelic's Bootsy Collins, the film incorporates interviews with Hendrix, coupled with the artist's letters,
writings and recordings to provide new insight into one of the most enduring icons of popular culture.
