Mojo Magazine's November issue has a great freebie cover mount CD. Called Experienced, it is 15 tracks inspired by The Jimi Hendrix Experience. It's hard to believe it but their stellar debut Are You Experienced? will be FORTY next year. Yes, it was released in 1967, and it's influence can still be found today. This collection has covers, both contemporary and classic, as well as tracks by Hendrix associates and contemporaries. It is a nice and diverse set, as demonstrated by today's tunes - some cheesy eazy listening from the late '60s, some serious riffage from McLaughlin's '70s fusion period and some stone cold acid funk rock from a '70s classic album called Maggot Brain.
