100. Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced?
Release Date: 1967
The Jimi Hendrix Experience were essentially Jimi Hendrix and two British musicians picked up from any old studio in London. Probably. Without Hendrix, they would've had to change their name and would've quickly faded into obscurity. As it is, Hendrix is often considered to be the greatest guitarist ever. Being a brilliant guitarist does not necessarily mean your albums are going to be great though. Luckily this album showcases just why Hendrix is so revered. Like all of these, I'm only listening to the songs that were on the original album and I thought #Are You Experienced?' was a weak finish.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
