The lead song from Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hollywood Bowl August 18, 1967 has been made available on all digital platforms by Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. in partnership with Legacy Recordings.

This cover of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” which had its world premiere on the SiriusXM satellite radio show “Breakfast With The Beatles,” comes in advance of the full album, which will be released November 10 on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

“Here is the sound of the most exciting new group in the world, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, live in rock’s greatest year – and performing the opening theme song from The Beatles’ Summer of Love masterpiece,” said David Fricke, guest host of “Breakfast With The Beatles” and former Rolling Stone editor. “It is a pleasure and honor to play it, for the first time anywhere, on the Beatles Channel.”

The Experience Hendrix team of Janie Hendrix, John McDermott and Eddie Kramer prepared this special album. Bernie Grundman served as mastering engineer.

Jimi Hendrix Experience: Hollywood Bowl August 18, 1967 will be available on CD as well as audiophile grade, individually numbered (US pressings only), 150 gram vinyl, complete with many previously unseen photos by Ed Caraeff, Henry Diltz and Allen Daviau from that night.
