Background: Released in October, 1971 Rainbow Bridge (full title: Rainbow Bridge – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) was the second Jimi Hendrix album released after his death.

Despite the title, the album is not the soundtrack to the Rainbow Bridge film, though it does contain a mixture of live and then-unreleased studio material.

The album reached #15 on the U.S. album chart and #16 in the UK.

Allmusic.com gave Rainbow Bridge a 4 star review:

Back when Rainbow Bridge was originally released, it was actually among the best of the posthumous Hendrix releases. Billed as “the original motion picture soundtrack” (it wasn’t, really), it was a mix of excellent, finished studio tracks and a couple of live tracks. .. Highlights include overlooked gems like “Pali Gap” and Jimi’s rarely heard studio version of “The Star Spangled Banner,” which is made of multi-tracked guitars and basses.
