Product Description

Product Description

Deluxe digitally remastered CD/DVD edition of this classic 1967 album from the Rock guitar legend. This edition is housed in a lavish six-panel digipak with 36 page booklet including detailed session info, liner notes, photos and memorabilia. The DVDs contain an exclusive "making of" mini documentary.

As emblematic of its time as of its sorcerer-like creator, 1967's Are You Experienced unleashed Jimi Hendrix onto a world in the midst of such cultural and musical shakeups that it really didn't seem as "far out" as it actually was. It wasn't just Hendrix's virtuosic skill as a pure player that was so impressive; it was, even more, the range and scope of sheer sound that he coaxed, cajoled, and ripped out of his instrument. "Purple Haze," "Manic Depression," and "I Don't Live Today" filled ears with indelible sonic images, and songs like "Foxey Lady" and "Fire" pointed the way toward a new brand of rock-charged soul music. And how about a hand for drummer Mitch Mitchell? --Billy Altman

I heard this, and Sgt. Pepper, and to me it's R.O.C.K. in the U.S.A. I heard Jimi for the first time at the tender age of 12. It was "Foxey Lady" that graced my ears, and so I left Disco behind. I finally had a chance to hear the album in it's entirity when I was 14. From the intro of "Purple Haze" to the final notes of "Are You Experienced?" this was the "CLASSIC" album in Rock and Roll. Mind you they reissued this album in 1993, and it includes some bonus tracks that were released on the imports, but if you can "BUY AMERICAN". The only good bonus track is "Stone Free" the rest was all junk, so buy the American release from September of 1967 if you can find it; It's short and sweet 11 tracks, and no filler. It has some of Hendrix's most creative pieces like "Love Or Confusion", "Third Stone From The Sun", and "May This Be Love?". It shows Hendrix at his most happy, and most creative. "Axis", and "Electric Ladyland" were good too, but this was a Rocky Mountain High. I don't feel, or think that any other rock album will come as close to a creative crescendo as this.

Format: Audio CD
I first heard this album when my older brother would play it over and over until I hated it. When it got re-released with extra songs, I found a new liking for it. There were the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and even Eric Clapton (Cream era), but there really was only one true solo guitar artist of this time. Jimi Hendrix just explodes on every track with hard core `rock and roll' ("Fire") or strong R & B ("Hey Joe"), but his classic FM songs were "Manic Depression" and "Purple Haze", the latter having one of the most replicated riffs in history outside of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway To Heaven". Little mention was made in the sixties of his drummer Mitch Mitchell or his bassist Noel Redding, but here with this Remastered recording, you hear the sound as it was meant to be heard - perfectly balanced. The extra songs are a great additions well, especially the `bluer than blue', "Red House", which is in competition with anything B.B. King has done. I can't imagine what Hendrix would have produced had he survived a while longer.

Everyone knows that Jimi Hendrix is a guitar legend, so I won't prattle on about that, but what I find the most interesting thing about him is that he was such an eclectic musician, and a great songwriter (he doesn't get enough credit for these things). Jimi was well known for his gift at playing the blues, but he also played hard rock, psychedelia, and even jazz-influenced material with equal conviction. This, his debut effort, is by far his hardest rocking, and is, in short, one killer album.
From the pulsing notes that open "Purple Haze" to the backwards guitar tracks of the title track, Jimi takes the listener on a whirlwind of impressive musical stylings that stays fresh with multiple listens. The Jimi Hendrix Experience would not have been complete without bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell, two wonderful yet underrated musicians who may be the only musicians on earth who are able to keep Jimi's mind-blowing guitar work down to earth, and these three play together extremely well.
The style most commonly found on this album is one of an artsy psychedelic, yet hard-biting rock style, in which all of Jimi's various blues, rock, and jazz influences are molded together into a coherent whole. "Purple Haze" and "Manic Depression" bludgeon the ears until Jimi quiets things down a bit with his beautiful rendition of "Hey Joe." Then, from here on, Jimi sequences various types of songs so that they alternate from one song to the next, giving the album a sense of variety and thereby showing Jimi's true songwriting eclecticism.

Format: Audio CD
With Hendrix's debut I feel like I am listening to a focused artist who has at least a couple albums under his belt. I must feel this way because it has gotten so much critical acclaim since its release. When I think of debuts, I think of albums that seem before their time and in turn lack the stand-out tracks that spawn commerial success. This album however, though it does contain those nessasary album tracks that I would expect to see on a debut, it also has many hit singles on it. Though hits mean success, the hits are also what more quickly fade away in terms of charm and listenability. That said, this album is certainly an eye opener but not for the reasons I would normally expect.
It opens my eyes because of the guitar playing mainly. It is a guitarist's pop record. It many times opens my eyes for its brilliant song writing too. This the the real reason I love the record. Hendrix was best at writing songs in my opinion. His first two records never captures his brilliance as a guitarist. They were/are good because of the great songs.
If this record were to have great song after another on it it would get five stars. It doesn't though. The "original" singles, the songs that sparked his success, are the songs that lack. Sure, Fire and Purple Haze have pleasing riffs but they lack depth. Even Foxey Lady gets boring after repeated listens. It is instead the songs like the fantastic cover of Hey Joe, The Wind Cries Mary, Manic Depression, and Thrid Stone From The Sun that shine through and through.
The rerelease adds 6 more songs that both are good and great. Though 2 of them are on Hendrix's latest "best of", it is a good bonus since the original record was only 40 minutes or so long.
Get the record for whatever reason you wish because it is definatly essential. Just know that if you can't appreciate its inner beauty, it will get old. Nothing old was ever attractive.
