The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Are You Experienced (1967)
Label: Experience Hendrix, MCA
FM radio killers like "Foxy Lady" and "Fire" and "Manic Depression" are so familiar by now that it's easy to forget how groundbreaking they were. Hendrix's 1967 debut blew the lid off of rock and roll in every conceivable way. The electric guitar never sounded the same after Jimi Hendix turned it upside down and had his way with it. And until you've experienced psychedelic gems like "3rd Stone From The Sun" you really haven't used your brain or your headphones.
