The original UK mono mix & track listing, just as Hendrix intended it!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Are You Experienced (UK mono) [Vinyl] (Vinyl)
You know the music, you might not be familiar with the original Mono mix however, which blows the later Stereo mix off the face of the Earth.
When this album was originally released in 1967 in the UK, it was only available in Mono, this is the mix that Hendrix wanted unleashed on the public and his preferred track listing.
Later that year when he got an American record deal, it was released over there in Mono & Stereo versions with a track listing, much to Hendrix's disgust, chosen by the record company i.e. containing the three big hits which were single only in the UK, at the expense of Red House among others.
To be truly Experienced, you need to listen to the original UK Mono mix and this superb heavyweight vinyl re-issue is probably the best way to do it until they finally release this mix on remastered HDCD/SACD. Buy it and blow your mind!
