Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 30/500!
The mono versions of this Jimi Hendrix classic is drawn from the original monoaural mixes created by Chas Chandler, Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Kramer in 1967. Mastered by Bernie Grundman, each album features original artwork and sequencing. This highly sought after mix, previously unavailable for decades, is presented on 200-gram audiophile vinyl.
The debut release from The Jimi Hendrix Experience is widely regarded as the greatest, most influential debut release from any artist. Are You Experienced has long been acknowledged as one of the most influential rock albums of all time. There are, however, two distinctly different editions of this legendary album. The original version, prepared and sequenced by Jimi and producer Chas Chandler, was issued throughout Europe in May 1967. This album excludes the group's first three UK singles. There has never been a mono release of this album in the U.S.
The classic US edition of the album was only available in mono for a brief period after its original August 1967 release. This version features the classic fish-eye cover and includes such hits as "Purple Haze" and "Hey Joe".
These original monophonic mixes for both albums have been transferred from the original master tapes by noted mastering engineer Bernie Grundman. Grundman's all analog mono mastering process help to present the vitality of the original recordings as accurately as possible.
This UK version of Are You Experienced contains the original UK pressing cover by Track Records. The tracklisting differs from the U.S. version in that it does not contain the three singles: "Purple Haze", "Hey Joe" or "The Wind Cries Mary" but instead these three tracks 'Red House", "Can You See Me", and "Remember" (which do not appear on the US version).
