Best of BBC Rock Hour Jimi Hendrix Special 1976 Hosted and directed by Alexis Korner; broadcast in 1976; fairly to very good audio taken from Pre-FM vinyl. Encoded: 224 Kbps MP3

(BBC Transcription Services radio library, USA 1981, 1LP)

- Premiere broadcast: 1976, hosted and directed by Alexis Korner.
- Interviews with Jimi Hendrix, Aland Douglas, Paul McCartney,

Probably one of the rarest LPs in circulation… I don’t remember seeing it listed anywhere, also neither by Univibes nor Jimpress. Fragments of this radio show, as far as I know, have been available only on the US bootleg LP 'Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window' (Dragonfly Records, USA 1978). -Emilovius
