Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Well....Are You?..... Aug. 16 2012
By Breadmanwalking TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Amazing early Acid Rock. Just take a look at the cover art.
Then listen to songs like "Third Stone From the Sun"....
Do you need a roadmap? As a teen I was subjected to this
heavy stuff. Tunes from this album were all over the radio.
It was the 'alternative music' of the day. I ate it up! Jimi
fell off the edge of the world early. We are lucky to have the
family taking a look at his work and producing discs for us to
enjoy decades later. The sound is probably as good as it will
ever get. I got this for a good price right here, online. Cool...

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Artist Remastered May 29 2008
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful on mutiple levels...a rock masterpiece Oct. 29 2003
Format:Audio CD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too Much! May 29 2013

Format:Audio CD
I don't think that the extra material is worth the extra money but the "original" tracks are must-haves. The lyricism of the bluesy guitar is chilling.

5.0 out of 5 stars The finest debut album in rock history. Oct. 15 2002
Format:Audio CD
In 1967, it's almost difficult to believe that Cream was just about to break up, the Yardbirds were about to be transformed into something new, and rock guitar was going to be changed forever.
Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, and Pete Townshend were rock icons then, but in terms of guiotar, they represented the evolution from blues-based rhythm to rock and roll. It would take an authentic blues band backup player from the US to revolutionize the rock vocabulary.
This album represents the first shot, the first battle, and a complete victory over the evolution of rock. To put it another way, there exists a permanent *gap* between where rock was going, and where Hendrix's Experience emerged. People are still trying to figure it out.
You've never heard anything like "Purple Haze" in your life. Doesn't matter who you dug, doesn't matter what planet you *thought* you inhabited. Hendrix came from Mars, or Venus, and chunked up his notes and fed them through some psychedelic blender in his head. And this is just "Purple Haze"! Can you believe this album also gave us "Foxey Lady", "Manic Depression", "Hey Joe", "The Wind Cries Mary", and the rippin' "Fire"? I can't. The UK release even had "Red House" on it. Imagine that, the playlist for any classic rock radio station contained on one album.
You start with this album, and if you had to pick one, just one, you could pick this and no one would dispute it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never you mind about some Sgt. Pepper July 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.
