  • Overview
  • More Info
When it was first released in 1967, Are You Experienced turned the music world upside down, as Hendrix showed everyone exactly what it meant to be "experienced." Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, charting new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume. It wouldn't have meant much, however, without his excellent material, whether psychedelic frenzy ("Foxey Lady," "Manic Depression,"), instrumental freak-out jams ("Third Stone from the Sun"), and blues ("Red House"), that demonstrated the breadth of his songwriting talents. Not to be underestimated were the contributions of drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding, who gave the music a rhythmic pulse that fused parts of rock and improvised jazz.

Remastered and cut to lacquer by Bernie Grundman from the original two-track mix down master tapes, this rare mono version of the LP returns to the original 11-song U.K. track version released in May 1967. Excluded from this U.K. version are the group's first three U.K. singles "Purple Haze," "Hey Joe" and "The Wind Cries Mary." In their place are "Red House," "Can You See Me" and "Remember." These much sought-after monphonic mixes have been unavailable for decades!

The plating at Quality Record Pressings was done by Gary Salstrom, master plating technician and general manager for QRP. Each of the reissued monos is individually numbered and features original artwork and sequencing.
