Hear My Train A Comin'


Widely recognized as one of the most creative and influential musicians of the 20th century, Jimi Hendrix pioneered the explosive possibilities of the electric guitar. Hendrix's innovative style of combining fuzz, feedback and controlled distortion created a new musical form. Because he was unable to read or write music, it is nothing short of remarkable that Jimi Hendrix's meteoric ... Read more in Amazon's Jimi Hendrix Store

Editorial Reviews

Ex The Animals musician & entrepreneur Chas Chandler had brought Hendrix to the UK, teaming him up with drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Noel Redding. Recordings for Are You Experienced had begun in late October 1966, producing a string of singles preceding the illustrious first album by the world's most famous guitarist. While recording, the future working relationship between engineer Eddie Kramer and Hendrix was forged. The debut album by The Jimi Hendrix Experience was initially issued in mono and then 'enhanced stereo' on later issues. The UK cover photography was by Bruce Flemming. Releases in Europe had the words "Jimi Hendrix" placed above the title. These later issues were 'enhanced stereo', with tracks listed on the back.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is The Copy To Own April 7, 2004
By Mad Dog
Format:Audio CD
If you've known only the US version of Are You Experienced, you really need to pick this baby up. The British LP on Track Records was released before the US version on Reprise. The British LP did not contain the popular songs released as singles (Hey Joe, Purple Haze, The Wind Cries Mary) but did have tunes that were not found on the US version (Red House, Can You See Me, Remember).
These differences in song listing affect the feel of the album in a big way. The Brisish version has a more rural feel, more of a blues and R&B thing. This version of Red House was not available in the US until the release of Blues in '94 and that's a pity. This was the original and it's truly outstanding in so many ways. To begin with, it's a blues guitar tour de force, all wrapped up in a 3-plus minute package. Take it to the bank. But it's the attitude that really sets it off and it's pure Jimi in every way. Very tongue in cheek, but built on a foundation of blues as real as Son House's sweat, Robert Johnson's tortured soul and Muddy Waters' grit.
I've never been all that crazy of the studio version of Can You See Me. It can't touch the live version on Jimi at Monterey, but still, it's a great song that, along with Stone Free and 51st Anniversary, make clear that Jimi was not ready to settle down into a comfy love nest. The other track on the Brit LP not on the US is Remember. I like this tune and it's mid 60s R&B groove. It helps to complete the distinctive feel of the British version.
In some ways, I think of the US version as being a more realized concept album. It sounds more modern and cohesive - and far more psychedelic. But there's something very special about this version and it's not to be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the way to listen to Master Jimi! March 5, 2013
By Brez
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I disagree with the first negative review. And concurr with the second rave review. I read that fist review this morning, as I knew my copy was to arrive today. It made me a bit nervous. But I have GREAT faith in my own two ears. I was lucky enough to have seen Jimi live as a 14 year old, and then aqain, at Woodstock, close to my 16th birthday. So, I know my Jimi. I'm NOT an audiophile. I have a great 60's tube McIntosh system, and thats been my rig, for years.
I bought all the Remastered Stereo Reissues a few years back. I rushed home to listen, much like the 14 year old me running home, with my original copies, at first original release. I was satisfied with them all. But, I never got the real "WOW!" effect, I desired.
So, The new Mono UK reissue just arrived and I did my first listen, without prejudice, from that first bad review.
Eureka! This release hit me right upside my head, in a way only Jimi could.
As a lifelong guitar player, the best way I can put it is this. His guitar sounds more like it must have sounded live in the studio, were you to have the honor of sitting in with him.
Pure, natural unadulterated tone. No spacial Stereo nonense. Jimi doesn't need any embellishment.
It is my opinion, that this is the best I have ever heard him, aside from being there,
Which I was.
Thank You God.
Thank You Jimi.
I'll be 60 in September, and Jimi helps my mind to stay WIDE OPEN.
[Without any embellishment. I don't need any of the crap, that took this sweet guy away]
Mono does more for Jimi, than any other artist, with which i've done the Stereo/Mono comparison.
If you're into tube Marshalls, and tube tone in general, you REALLY hear it, on this platter. Thank You Again, Jimi.
Wish You were Here.
I take that back.
You ARE here.

4.0 out of 5 stars UK track list mono vinyl March 9, 2013
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
I read a review of this re-release after I had ordered it but before it came in the mail. The reviewer said the album sounded muddy and not clear at all. Man I started to feel regret. The album came in and I put it on. I started with side 2 because it starts with May This Be Love (my favorite hendrix song) Let me tell you it never sounded better. next song was Fire. The problem here is that you can tell when the compression kicks in on this track. The rest of side two sounded very good. I flip over to side one. Foxy Lady starts side one. I can say this ONE track does sound muddy. The rest of side one sounded very good to great.

5.0 out of 5 stars And I thought it couldn't be better.... July 14, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As a guitar lover I've been enjoying Jimi Hendrix since the time when there were only records (those big black pies for you kids...). When I bought my first Hendrix CD, he sounded even better and I couldn't believe it. After a few years, I started getting some new remastered Hendrix CDs and GOD... EVEN BETTER. Even if you have a LOT of Hendrix CD like I do, it's worthed to get some remastered CDs. And I thought it couldn't get any better...

Upon reading the reviews of this pressing (both positive and negative) I have to agree that they are both right in their respective critiques. However, I will say this, This was exactly what I thought it would be. I am neither overly impressed nor was I disappointed.

I have been looking for a good copy of this(UK version) for years. I would not be all that interested in the mono US version. I already have great sounding copies of that version. I am tired of paying obscene amounts of money for used noisy copies of records that I like.I was very excited when I saw that they were going to reissue this. This reissue is a great value as far as I am concerned. This is for Jimi Hendrix collectors and maybe not for the average collector who just wants a great "sonic" copy for their system. The previously reissued stereo copies of this record are quite wonderful for that in my opinion.

I am at an age where I remember these records when they were first released. Most of the people I grew up with had very crude "record players" at the time, so we did not know the difference between a great pressing or a bad one. We just wanted to hear the music. In my younger years, we mostly listened to this music from car stereos. Remember 4 and 8 track tapes? I did not have a decent home stereo system until about 1971 or so. Back in the 1960's we had an old RCA orthophonic table top record player with a crude needle and we thought that was great. That was what mono was mixed for, not exotic audiophile systems.

For those who are looking for a sonic masterpiece, this is not your record. For those who are looking for a great facsimile of a piece of history, this is a great value and well produced item in my opinion.
