Background: Released in 1967, Are You Experienced? was the debut LP by Jimi Hendrix and the first of only three studio albums to be released in his lifetime. It’s also one of the most influential rock albums ever made.
The LP reached #2 on the UK charts and #5 in the U.S.
One of the most stunning debuts in rock history, and one of the definitive albums of the psychedelic era. On Are You Experienced?, Jimi Hendrix synthesized various elements of the cutting edge of 1967 rock into music that sounded both futuristic and rooted in the best traditions of rock, blues, pop, and soul. It was his mind-boggling guitar work, of course, that got most of the ink, building upon the experiments of British innovators like Jeff Beck and Pete Townshend to chart new sonic territories in feedback, distortion, and sheer volume.
