A five LP box set by Jimi Hendrix, entitled Live & Unreleased, issued in the UK in 1989 with a poster
Offered for sale is a scarce 1989 UK 5 LP box set with a poster by Jimi Hendrix entitled Live & Unreleased.
In 1988, Westwood One sent an 8 LP set to radio stations in the U.S. for radio broadcast containing music and interviews with Jimi Hendrix, his band members and studio associates. Much of the material in that radio show was then unreleased, including a number of live tracks. In the UK, Castle Communications released the material commercially in the form of a 5 LP box set that included a poster. As far as we know, the material in the box set duplicates the radio show in its entirety, minus the commercials, of course.
The set was never released in the United States.
The copy of Live & Unreleased offered for sale is in nice condition, with a box that’s VG+ with some wear on the corners and discs that are M-. The original poster, which duplicates the cover photo, is included and is M-.
We’ve seen this set sold elsewhere for as much as $400.
