Paris 1967/San Francisco 1968 is a posthumous live album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience, released on April 24, 2003 by Dagger Records. The album contains songs from The Jimi Hendrix Experience's performances at the Olympia in Paris, France on October 9, 1967 and the Fillmore Auditorium[1] in San Francisco, California, USA on February 4, 1968.

The Paris show is not complete on this release. Two superb examples of the spirited performance were included as part of the 2000 Jimi Hendrix Experience box set. "The Wind Cries Mary" and "Catfish Blues", two additional Paris performances have not been included. Technical problems commenced during the latter half of "Catfish Blues" and a malfunctioning microphone rendered "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" and "Foxey Lady" unusable.
