Access All Areas: Are You Experienced?

From Access All Areas, 5:00 pm on 15 September 2007

In September 1967 Jimi Hendrix released his hugely influential debut album Are You Experienced?. Hendrix was very much a black rock musician in a white musical world and despite cutting his teeth on a musical diet of blues and soul, he was often criticised for not being 'black' enough. Trevor Reekie considers Jimi Hendrix and the question of blackness.
