Fans of the legendary guitarist JIMI HENDRIX will be pleased to learn that plans exist to issue a CD and limited-edition double-LP, "The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Live At Berkeley (The Second Set)", on October 14.

The recording stems from a 1970 performance that has long been partially available on VHS, according to Billboard.com. A DVD version of the concert mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound will be released Sept. 16.

The hour-long DVD will feature material from the two sets of a May 30, 1970, concert played by the EXPERIENCE at Berkeley, Calif.'s Community Theater. Filmed less than four months before Hendrix's death, the footage features the legendary guitarist augmented by longtime drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox. Original EXPERIENCE bassist Noel Redding had quit the band in June 1969.

The Experience Hendrix/Universal Music Enterprises CD/LP release will feature the second set of the performance in its entirety, cutting "Johnny B. Goode" and "Hear My Train a Comin'" from the film version and adding performances of "Foxey Lady", "Hey Joe", "Pass It On (Straight Ahead)" and "Stone Free".
