The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Are You Experienced

On May 12, 1967, the madness began ...

The Power Trio's debut album "The Jimi Hendrix Experience" revealed to the world the greatest electric guitar player of all time, which will change the whole perception of guitar playing and using this amazing instrument.

Jimi Hendrix's virtuoso, wild and unrestrained playing will affect anyone who wants to hold the guitar after him, leaving even colleagues (Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck) speechless, and making Pete Townshend refuse to perform after him at the Monterey Festival, and he certainly knew why, because Hendrix simply "burned" the stage (and his guitar) in a tremendous performance that left no one to go after it.

It is simply inconceivable how a man who had been active for such a short period caused such a great revolution in the music world.

The year is 1967 and the debut album "Are You Experienced" did not sound like anything else released at the time. The heavy and powerful sound, psychedelia combined with rock, blues, and even a hint of soul music, created a crazy mix that did not sound like anything else.

Jimi Hendrix conducts this masterpiece with perfect playing technique, unfamiliar sounds, creative riffs, and unconventional feedbacks. And when Hendrix opened his mouth while playing riffs and clever guitar sentences, it was already pure genius !! "Foxy Lady", "Manic Depression", "Fire" and the songs "Hey Joe", "Purple Haze", and "The Wind Cries Mary", which were released as singles before the release of the album and were only included in the American version, leave no room for doubt. This is a classic album that is also one of the best debut albums of all time.
