Description When Jimi Hendrix burst on to the scene in 1966, he achieved iconic status almost overnight. In four short years, he changed the course of rock music forever and remains a major influence to all those who have since followed in his footsteps. Far from appearing from nowhere, this enormous talent had grafted for years playing back-up for some of the major R&B acts of the day and had been taking in influences from the earliest days of delta blues to the rock & roll music of the fifties.

This collection features key tracks from some of the many artists who inspired one of Rock's major figures.
