Product Description

JIMI HENDRIX Are You Experienced (1997 UK 17-track digitally remastered CD album including six bonus recordings picture sleeve with lyrics and Hendrix catalogue insert MCD11608)

Amazon.co.uk

The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Are You Experienced? (MCA Records MCD 11608) - EAN: 008811160821 - 1997 UK 17-track digitally remastered CD album including six bonus recordings and 24 page booklet.

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 shake-ups 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

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.

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.

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!

`Are You Experienced?' is consistently voted one of the greatest debut albums ever, by any artist from any age, and sounds as good today as on its May 1967 UK release. In 2005 the original recordings were selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress, a rare honour indeed.

These were not the first recordings ever made by Hendrix: he had already recorded quite a body of work with Curtis Knight in 1965 in the USA. But it was in London in 1966, sponsored and financed by Chas Chandler, that together with Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on bass the legendary Jimi Hendrix Experience was born. In early 1967 Hendrix made the most of his studio time and laid down all his best contemporary material, and it is on this collection that his youthful creativity shines the brightest.

It's difficult now to understand how revolutionary this music sounded in 1967. Nothing quite like it had ever been done before; it became the sound of a generation and spawned a thousand imitators of the Hendrix style, none a patch on the unique original. Hendrix raised the bar on what could be done with an electric guitar, and has never been surpassed and never equalled. Bob Dylan had influenced Hendrix towards writing clever, interesting lyrics and these, often tinged with humour, overlay styles ranging from the hard-rocking (Purple Haze, Manic Depression, the title track) to classic blues (Red House), to the mellow and serene (The Wind Cries Mary) and the psychedelic experimental (Third Stone from the Sun, reminiscent in style to some of Pink Floyd's extended stage numbers around 1968) and more.
