Biography

Biography by Richie Unterberger & Sean Westergaard
In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. ...

5.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable 1 Oct 2010
By MR
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
First listened to this album when I was 15 (now 41). I have since listened to thousands of hours of music in other genres and wondered if this album would still have the same powerful effect on me that it did all those years ago. Needless to say it did. There are only a few records this statement applies to: you must have this in your music collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ten Stars! 26 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
A truly stunning album, easily one of the best first efforts by any group, any time.

There's not much to be said apart from that, but the musicianship and songs are marvellous. Mitch's drumming is superb throughout and Noel's under-rated bass playing is solid but inventive.

Hendrix never really surpassed this in terms of its freshness and general impact, although he steadily grew as a musician after its release. The variety on the album is unsurpassed, except by The Beatles: jazz (Third Stone from the Sun); blues (Red House); R&B soul (Fire, Remember), even a hard rock waltz (Manic Depression) and a surf song (May This Be Love).

There are two re-issues of this album around. The best has the original UK running order, starting with Foxy Lady, and the six bonus tracks (Hey Joe, Purple Haze, etc) at the end of the CD. It also has the original UK cover, which is a bit daggy.

The other issue has the US running order, which has Purple Haze as its first track, and then the six bonus tracks (Red House, Can You See Me, etc) at the end. This has the 'fish eye' cover, which is more suited to the music.

You get the same songs, but the UK issue has the running order as Hendrix intended. Both versions have the same sound, remastered by Eddie Kramer, Jimi's original engineer.

5.0 out of 5 stars May This Be Love? 20 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
With a debut album of this caliber, it blew to peices the first workings of the other great guitarists of the time. This album infact is so good, that its songs such as Foxy Lady, Purple Haze, Hey Joe, Fire, Red House, Are You Experienced and The Wind Crys Mary are some of the most commonly assosiated to Jimi Hendrix, despite his fairly large catalogue of guitar-excellence. The album as a whole has a love at first sight appeal which intensifies every listen. The album itself is mixed very well; each song flows perfectly to the next. Intrestingly, the album is full of mixed styles of music from the blues of Red House and his own style of blues, Manic Depression, to unique psychedelic experimentation of Are You Experienced and Third Stone From The Sun to funky rock with Purple Haze and Fire. Giving all this, one would expect the feel of the album to change drastically as it progressed. This is not the case, for the album feels as one perfect blend culminating to become one of the finest listening experiences you shall ever have. This perfectly crafted album shall not dissapoint and is an essential album to be placed in any collection.

I simply could have not resist the temptation to buy yet another edition of Jimi Hendrix Experience first album, newly repackaged by Sony Music. What a disappointment. Not the music, of course.

Are You Experienced is no doubt one of the most important albums in rock history. In 1967 the music and sounds on LP might have as well come from another planet or dimension.

It is the quality of sound and production of new edition I find unsatisfactory.

The "new" remastered edition sounds exactly the same as the MCA "Experience Hendrix" edition from 1997. Even the booklet is more or less the same, with only minor amendments in text and outlay.

The sound of this edition from 1997 (or 2010 if you want), though remastered by original engineer Eddie Kramer, is in my firm belief notably inferior to the previous Polydor remaster edition from 1993. The 1993 remaster simply sounds clearer and more balanced with less distortion (and I am not talking about Jimi's interventions, of course). The new edition even seems to contain production faults (like for example a strange change in the color of the sound in the last 12 seconds of the Red House).

Moreover, 1993 edition booklet contained great background stories and explanations of each of the album tracks by Jimi, Noel, Mitch and Chas which is sadly absent from the newer editions.

4.0 out of 5 stars First and Freshest Album From Guitar Legend 31 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
This re-packaging of the Experience's first studio album finally amalgamates all the tracks from the original UK and US 1967 releases, the bonus for those who previously owned only the UK version being the inclusion of six additional tracks previously released only as singles.
Veering from ouright psychadelia (the title track and Third Stone From The Sun for example) to straightforward blues (Red House) and in the meantime taking in some "finger clicking" pop (Remember), this is Hendrix at the peak of his creative ability. The guitarist was still in his "eager to please" phase thus allowing producer Chas Chandler to do a superb job of complementing Hendrix's explosive talent and personality whilst at the same time reigning-in the self indulgence and "noodling" which crept into his later work towards the end of his life. One star deducted for the absolutely rotten re-mix of Purple Haze which sets the guitar in the left channel and the vocal in the right giving the song a strange disembodied feel....then again, one should remember it was originally released in mono!
