Surely this is one of the all-time classic rock albums. There can have been few debut albums more ground-breaking than this. Coming back to it after all these years, I was struck by two things that I had forgotten. Firstly, just how important Mitch Mitchell was to the overall sound of the Experience. On tracks like Manic Depression, Mitchell virtually duets with Hendrix rather than merely providing one half of a rhythm section. The other thing is Jimi's sense of humour. Red House is an extended joke, almost at the expense of the "blues". This is so refreshing compared with all the po-faced white performers of the time (Step forward Eric Clapton.) who treated the blues tradition as something sacrosanct.

This CD version of the album is enhanced by the addition of various singles, including the sublime Hey Joe and Purple Haze. The economy of these two tracks from early in Jimi's career, before audiences and drugs took him towards excess, is striking. They both remain as pinnacles of the rock single, right up there with the very best of the Beatles or the Stones.

Of course, the overall sound is very much of its time. You could not imagine this album being made today, with Hendrix' hard rock guitar, Mitchell's jazz fusion drumming and the sometimes rampantly sexist lyrics. Hendrix has dated in ways that the Beatles, the Stones and even the Velvets have not. But if he is of his time, he also transcends his time. You listen to his music knowing you hearing something from the late 1960s, but you are also aware that it is marvelous and timeless. And it is marvelous not to just to old farts like myself, but also to our sons and, increasingly, grandsons. I find it is the same with the only slightly later Monty Python.

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.

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.

OK this seems to be digital sourced, but sounds good enough. The good thing about this vinyl set is it cover's both the UK & USA original release of this album, hence the double LP containing all tracks not available on both sides of the atlantic at the time. Amazons product description isn't correct as this is 2 LP's not one disc. The album cover shown is the USA release I believe. Nice edition with gatefold good artwork and clear sleeves.

I had high hopes for this album, what with it being in its original mono, the mastering being endorsed by Jimi Hendrix's estate.
I expected it to sound better than it does. I am not averse to mono recordings as such but this record sounds flat and poorly mastered.
I also didn't realise until I had already bought it that two versions exist, this one and a double album version which contains the additional single tracks. It wasn't cheap so I feel slightly short changed by a record which is both a little dull sounding and incomplete, compared to its double-album version. This should have been a real treasure as it is a must - have classic album but I wouldn't recommend this release. 3 stars

This is perhaps one of the best purchases i have done ever, i wasnt sure if the stereo version was gonna sound good since other psychedelic classics like Sgt. Peppers sounded awful in stereo. But i was suprised to find out that this mastering by Eddie Kramer is perhaps one of the best remasters ever created. It's like he made the album the way it was supposted to be, dont shed away extra money for the mono version, this is it. Theres even a LP with bonus tracks pressed on 180g vinyl with quality sleeves and a gatefold cover and whatnot, with a booklet. As for the album itself, its a classic that sounds as good as ever.
