Are You Experienced?
The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967)
The first studio album from the legendary Jimi Hendrix was released 55 years ago today. Literally every song on the North American release of Are You Experienced is an absolute masterpiece, including Fire, Hey Joe, Foxy Lady and a song that would be in the George Washington position on the classic rock Mt. Rushmore, Purple Haze.
Purple Haze all in my brainLately things just don't seem the sameActin' funny but I don't know whyExcuse me while I kiss the skyPurple Haze all aroundDon't know if I'm coming up or downAm I happy or in misery?Whatever it is, that girl put a spell on mePurple Haze all in my eyesDon't know if it's day or nightYou've got me blowing, blowing my mindIs it tomorrow or just the end of time?
