Jimi Hendrix Experience — Are You Experienced (Mono)
Remastered on Heavyweight Vinyl
Widely regarded as one of the greatest debuts in the history of rock music, Are You Experienced forever changed the concept of what a guitar could sound like. Jimi strapped on his “upside down” Stratocaster, punched his wah-wah peddle, and the world was never the same. This album is that revolutionary.
- The Experience had only been together for a few weeks in May of 1967 when they recorded <em>Are You Experienced</em> in London. They were also just a month away from their U.S debut, where Jimi left the beautiful people of the Monterey Pop Festival absolutely gobsmacked by torching his guitar onstage. But The Experience wasn’t all Jimi. They were a superb power trio, with Noel Redding swapping his six-string for a bass and Mitch Mitchell attacking the drums with a ferocity that made <em>Are You Experienced</em> as much a revelation for drummers as it was for guitarists.<br><strong> Side 1:</strong><br><ol><br> <li>Foxy Lady (3:19)</li> <li>Manic Depression (3:42)</li> <li>Red House (3:42)</li> <li>Can You See Me (2:33)</li> <li>Love Or Confusion (3:11)</li> <li>I Don’t Live Today (3:55)</li></ol><br><strong>Side 2:</strong><br><ol><br> <li>May This Be Love (3:11)</li> <li>Fire (2:43)</li> <li>Third Stone From The Sun (6:44)</li> <li>Remember (2:48)</li> <li>Are You Experienced (4:14)</li></ol>
