About this album

Are You Experienced is the debut album by English/American band The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Released in 1967, it was the first LP for Track Records. The album highlighted Jimi Hendrix’s R&B-based, , distortion- and feedback-laden playing, and launched him as a major new international star. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it #15 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.

In 2005 Are You Experienced was selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress in the United States.

History

After arriving in England in 1966, Hendrix formed The Jimi Hendrix Experience with Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on bass. The group signed with Track Records, newly formed by The Who’s managers Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp. The group’s debut single appeared on Polydor Records, because Track was not yet operational. This group released three Top 10 hit UK singles produced by Chas Chandler: “Hey Joe”/”Stone Free” (December 1966), “Purple Haze”/”51st Anniversary” (March 1967, the first release by the new Track Records label, on a special white label) and “The Wind Cries Mary”/”Highway Chile” (May 1967). During the making of these singles, The Jimi Hendrix Experience also cut the tracks that became their debut album, which Chandler also produced with the Olympic Studios engineer Eddie Kramer (some tracks were recorded with engineers Dave Siddle at De Lane Lea and Mike Ross at CBS studios).

    E assim o maior ícone da guitarra começava sua prodigiosa carreira. “Purple Haze” chega mostrando novos horizontes que se abriam para um novo blues, Jimi Hendrix chega como um guitarrista turbinado rodando muito mais rápido que qualquer outro no seu segmento. Alias, um segmento que é só seu até os dias de hoje. Seus dedos “fenderes” estão maravilhosos nos clássicos “Manic Depression”, “Hey Joe”, Fire”, “Third Stone From The Sun”, “Foxey Lady” e “The Wind Cries Mary”, essas canções que influenciaram os mais diversos artistas de tantos segmentos diferentes, misturando grooves de R&B, muito drive na guitarra, efeitos psicodélicos, com letras viajantes regadas de caracteristicas hippies. A experiência que tenho com esse álbum é de ouvi-lo em todas mídias que já foram lançadas, desde a fita K7, vinil, cd, cd remasterizado, mp3,... e assim continuarei com todas as que vierem no futuro.
