The majority of my Amazon reviews deal with audio mastering, so I will be focusing only on the CD, and will defer comment on the DVD content to other reviewers.

The last Hendrix catalog mastering overhaul was performed in 1997. I have just finished comparing this new 2010 edition to the 1997 "Are You Experienced" remaster. The result? If you're considering buying this set with the expectation of new or improved remastering, save your money: This "remaster" is sonically indistinguishable from the '97 release. Furthermore, the track times exactly match the 1997 CD, and both freedb and iTunes recognize the 2010's ISRC disc code as the '97.

(Although I have referred to my A/B set-up in previous Amazon reviews, I should reiterate: My comparisons are made on two Sony XA7 transports wired into a Camelot Uther DAC via matched-length Acoustic Zen coax cables and monitored thru Sennheiser 590's. This configuration allows me to compare two CD's playing simultaneously, and instantly switch back and forth between them, rather than having to physically change out discs in one transport. If there's a better way to perform an A/B listening test, I haven't found it.)

No matter what other reviews you read here, THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO DISCERNIBLE DIFFERENCE IN SOUND OR MIXING. Anyone contradicting this a.) is mistakenly comparing either the original, awful 80's CD, the 1990 truncated disc, or the 1993 MCA remaster (check the copyright date on the J-card for your version), or, b.

Format: Audio CD
The overview, for those who have recently arrived from Mars and never heard of Jimi Hendrix, or who have recently started studying rock history and never heard of ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?: In his liner essay to this CD, Dave Marsh calls this "the greatest, most influential debut album ever released," and it's hard to counter his praise. Hendrix is one of the few 1960s rock gods who is worshipped as much by the children of those who grew up with his music as by their parents. This was the world's introduction to his psychedelic guitar, trippy lyrics and throbbing basslines, and his voice was clear from the start. It's rare to find more than one or two signature songs on a debut -- even Bob Dylan, the Beatles and the Rolling Stones needed a running start to become the artists we think of today -- but Hendrix has five: "Purple Haze," "Foxey Lady," "Fire," "Hey Joe" and "The Wind Cries Mary." Thirty-five years after its initial release, ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? is prized both for its historical significance and its rocking sound, perfect for summer road trips or dorm room parties.
With this CD release, the classic has been given its due. The remastered sound brings out every whine and whistle of Hendrix's guitar, every reverberation of Mitch Mitchell's drums, every "plunk" of Noel Redding's bass, restoring to the sound the layers it was intended to have.
Marsh trips over himself to praise the album -- at one point, he suggests the Universe was created for the sole purpose of producing it -- but in his four pages he adequately places the album in its historical context.
In selecting the six songs (Tracks 12-17) to add to the album's original 11, MCA and Experience Hendrix did a bang-up job of adding to the classic without breaking up the flow.

If you already have the 1997 MCA editions of these (Are You, Axis, Ladyland), then you basically have these remastered versions minus the (short) DVDs. There's really no discernable difference in audio quality between these 2010 remasters and the 1997 remasters. They sound identical.

BUT...if you really need the DVDs and/or you don't own the 1997 issues, by all means GO FOR IT!

So take the five star review for the quality of the music, keeping in mind you may already have these versions in your collection if you're considering purchasing these reissues.

Many artists have released excellent debut albums, but this is probably the debut that stunned the music world the most. It introduced the world to a 24-year-old gypsy named Jimi Hendrix, and his rather unique mix of blues, Bob Dylan, avant-garde experimentations and the Beatles. ARE YOU EXPERIENCED? definitely is one of the most essential albums in rock history. A lot of the songs are still played on the radio to this day ("Purple Haze," "Hey Joe," "Wind Cries Mary," "Fire," etc.) and it has influenced a countless amount of people to pick up guitars and just rock out.

In terms of songwriting, a few rival with Hendrix. From the beauty of "may this be love" to the chaos of 'i don't live today' and the On The Road-esque 'highway child,' Hendrix, besides being probably the best guitarist of all time, was an excellent and prolific writer, who used sound effects and chords at all of the right times.

My personal favorite track on this album is the 7-minute psychedelic/avant-garde jam "Third Stone From the Sun." With the experimentation of weird voices, weird poetry, jazz, and of course, Hendrix's legendary guitar distortion, it's an underrated track, but embodies basically everything Hendrix could do.

If you want to get into Hendrix, this is the place to start, and in my opinion, this is his best album. Now with music worse than ever, where's Hendrix when you need him?

Another Experience Hendrix disappointment
Why do we want the mono version? Well for AYE - Hendrix recorded that album in mono - if you're listening to it in Stereo you're not hearing it how Hendrix originally recorded it. Do a google search about it and go to some Hendrix websites for information about that. The original UK Track... Read More

re jimi hendrix are you experienced cd dvd
I have read a confirmation that these CDs (Sony Re-issues) are the same masters as the MCA ones from 12 or so years ago.
