'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

‘Miami Pop Festival'

Jimi Hendrix Experience (Experience Hendrix/Legacy)

★★★★

For my money, the two most iconic Jimi Hendrix performances were at the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, where he set fire to his guitar at set's end, and the 1969 Woodstock appearance that cemented Hendrix's status as a legend. Sandwiched between those legendary sets is the 1968 Miami Pop Festival, available here for the first time in any form.

Recorded by sound engineer Eddie Kramer, this 11-track set includes his first recorded performances of “Tax Free” and “Hear My Train A Comin',” as well as stellar renditions of “Hey Joe,” “Foxey Lady,” “Fire,” “I Don't Live Today” and “Purple Haze.” A must for Hendrix completists, it's another chance to admire the late, great guitarist.
