Rank the Tracks: Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced (1967)

Post by Honorio »

Are you ready to answer Jimi's question?



The Jimi Hendrix Experience's "Are You Experienced" (1967)

Tracklisting:
01 | Foxy Lady
02 | Manic Depression
03 | Red House
04 | Can You See Me
05 | Love or Confusion
06 | I Don't Live Today
07 | May This Be Love
08 | Fire
09 | Third Stone From The Sun
10 | Remember
11 | Are You Experienced?
12 | Purple Haze
13 | Hey Joe
14 | The Wind Cries Mary

Note: the original edition of "Are You Experienced" (first released in the UK on May 12th of 1967 and then internationally) only included the first 11 tracks on the track listing above. The US edition (released on August 23rd of 1967) replaced three tracks (numbers 3, 4 and 10) by the A-sides of the first three singles of the Experience. Since these 3 songs (numbers 12 to 14 on the track listing above) are probably going to be the most acclaimed off the album I've decided to combine the UK and US editions of the album for this game.

And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes, I'll see you next week on the dark side of the moon...

Yes, I can answer Jimi's question Honorio, and it is a definitive "yes". When I began really paying attention to this album, I seriously had no idea I would like it so much. It's kind of hard to rank though, because the tracks are all of similar quality. My only issue with this album is that it's a bit too indulgent for me.
It was a very good idea to put all the tracks together! Hmm...I wish 51th Anniversary was in the tracklisting too. (Argh, we'd be one year off!)

02 | Manic Depression
12 | Purple Haze
01 | Foxy Lady
07 | May This Be Love
13 | Hey Joe
14 | The Wind Cries Mary
03 | Red House
08 | Fire
05 | Love or Confusion
09 | Third Stone From The Sun
04 | Can You See Me
06 | I Don't Live Today
11 | Are You Experienced?
10 | Remember

And of course, we're all excited for next week ;)

I've included the three b sides to the singles that were added to the US version of the album on my ranking, in parenthesis. The 17 track version is my personal favorite edition of the album (probably because I love almost all Hendrix music).
