Jimi Hendrix, "West Coast Seattle Boy — The Jimi Hendrix Anthology"
The influential guitar god's catalog is one of the most exhaustively repackaged in history. The four CDs in this collection — authorized by the Hendrix family — break down Hendrix's career chronologically from sideman to folks like the Isley Brothers and Little Richard to live and alternate takes and demos of the songs that launched countless guitar hero fantasies. Hendrix narrates his own tale in the included DVD, "Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child." A two-disc version of the set includes 15 choice tracks and the documentary.
