“Are You Experienced?” is the debut album by English/American rock band The Jimi Hendrix Experience. The album highlighted Jimi Hendrix’s R&B-based, psychedelic, distortion- and feedback-laden electric guitar playing, and launched him as a major new international star.
In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it #15 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. In 2005 “Are You Experienced?” was selected for permanent preservation in the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress in the United States.
