Analogue Productions presents the SACDs Jimi Hendrix fans have asked for: Hybrid
SACDs of both Axis: Bold As Love, as well as Are You Experienced, the 1967 debut
full-length studio release by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Newly remastered by
Bernie Grundman from the original analog master tapes, each disc contains the
mono and stereo mixes for each of these historic albums. This is pure DSD sound
When first released in 1967 in the U.S., Are You Experienced turned the music
world upside down as Hendrix showed everyone exactly what it meant to be
"experienced." This SACD returns to the original 11-song version that was
originally released in August 1967. It contains such eternal classics as "Hey
Joe," "Purple Haze," "The Wind Cries Mary," "Fire," and the title song, whose
backward drum and guitar tracks and otherworldly guitar work still sound
innovative almost a half-century later.
As Rolling Stone states, Jimi Hendrix was the most innovative instrumental
genius the rock era produced, a wizard guitar player whose sense of technique
never overwhelmed the blues and rock 'n' roll spirit that was the underpinning
of his genius. He improvised with the fervor of a born jazzman; he philosophized
like the most cosmic rocker, but ultimately his basics were rooted in soul, a
reflection of the chitlin circuit, where he cut his teeth.
With the possible exception of Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience was debatably
the world's finest-ever power trio. Axis and Are You Experienced showcased the
grasp that Jimi and his cohorts — Mitch Mitchell on drums and Noel Redding on
bass — had on the studio technology at their disposal, and the lyrical beauty of
Hendrix's guitar playing.
