Was Jimi Hendrix experienced? Let's go to the vaults, shall we?

Vivid Entertainment, the company that brought you the X-rated shenanigans of Pamela Anderson and Kim Kardashian, among others, announced it has acquired from a memorabilia collector a sex tape featuring the late guitar god and plans to release it.

According to a statement from Vivid, the Hendrix footage was filmed in a hotel room in the late 1960s, doesn't consist of any sound and has poor lighting. But it purportedly features the Axis: Bold as Love axman sporting a bandana over his Afro and getting it on with two foxy ladies.

The Los Angeles-based porn distributor is marketing the 11-minute footage as part of a 45-minute DVD, Jimi Hendrix the Sex Tape, which will also include flashbacks of the rock legend's stellar career and retail for $39.95 in stores and via download. (Vivid did not obtain music licenses so the video will not have a Hendrix soundtrack.)

As the New York Times reports, however, sources who've seen the grainy 8mm clip say Hendrix's face is only visible for a few seconds. Also casting doubts on the authenticity of Vivid's claims, several of the musician's ex gal-pals from the '60s have come forward saying the man in the film is not the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer.

Vivid claims it vetted the tape and was convinced the footage was the real deal after talking with the unidentified man who shot the explicit scene. The women in the film have yet to be identified.

Hendrix died in 1970 at the age of 27 from drug-related causes.
