The Jimi Hendrix Memorial Concerts: 1995 is a live, double CD composed entirely of Jimi Hendrix covers. It is The Hamsters fifth CD release.

The tour the album ultimately derived from was performed as a tribute to Jimi Hendrix as a celebration of 25 years since his death. The band's first album, Electric Hamsterland, also a compilation of Hendrix covers, was released in 1990, 20 years after the death of Hendrix. For the 25th anniversary the band decided to do a full UK tour playing predominantly Hendrix covers. This album was recorded during that tour, as was a concert film, Band of Gerbils which was initially released on VHS with a subsequent release on DVD ten years later.
