Are You Experienced is the debut album by Jimi Hendrix. Released in 1967. 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.
Are You Experienced has remained a critical and commercial success since its release. The album reached number 2 in the United Kingdom, behind The Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. In 2003, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it #15 on Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The album was an instant success and was a best-selling album in the United States in 1968 and critics subsequently regarded it as one of the best rock albums of all time.

Axis: Bold as Love is the second studio album by Jimi Hendrix. Under pressure from their record company to follow-up the successful debut of their May 1967 album Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love was released on Track Records in the UK in December 1967. It reached #5 in the UK and later #3 in the US.
The album was recorded to fulfill the band’s contract, which stated that they must produce two albums in 1967. Even so, it was not released in the USA until 1968 due to fears that it might disturb the sales of the first album. Bassist Noel Redding has noted that this was his favourite of the three Experience albums. He plays eight string bass on some tracks.
Just before the album’s completion, Hendrix left the master tapes of side 1 in a taxi. They were never found again, and thus the A-side had to be mixed again quickly.

Under pressure from their record company to follow-up the successful debut of their May 1967 album Are You Experienced, Electric Ladyland is the third album by Jimi Hendrix, released in October 1968. It is the only Hendrix studio album professionally produced under his supervision. It topped the Billboard 200 album chart for two weeks in November 1968.
The original North American-only Reprise release album cover featured a “fiery” photo of Hendrix’ head. The slightly later Track/Polydor International album release cover, controversially, was a photo of group of nude women, which was only replaced after Experience Hendrix took control of Hendrix’ recordings. In most Francophone parts of Europe, Barclay Records used a cover showing a downward pointing arm at a very small photo of Hendrix’ head.
Released as a double album, Electric Ladyland is a cross-section of Hendrix’s wide range of musical talent. It includes examples of several genres and styles of music: the psychedelic “Burning of the Midnight Lamp”, previously a U.K. single in the summer of 1967; the extended blues jam “Voodoo Chile”; the New Orleans-style R&B of Earl King’s “Come On”; the epic studio production of “1983… (A Merman I Should Turn to Be)”; the social commentary of “House Burning Down”; and the Sixties-era Britpop of Noel Redding’s “Little Miss Strange”. The album also features an avant-garde reworking of the Bob Dylan classic “All Along the Watchtower”, which has been well-received by critics as well as by Dylan himself, as well as “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)”, a staple of both radio and guitar repertoire.

Band of Gypsys was a blues rock band led by Jimi Hendrix and backed by Billy Cox and Buddy Miles. Hendrix formed the band after the dissolution of The Jimi Hendrix Experience. Band of Gypsys is also the band’s eponymous live album recorded on two separate nights, 31 December 1969 and 1 January 1970, at the Fillmore East. Released just six months before his death in 1970, it was the last album Hendrix himself authorized, and the only Hendrix-authorized album to be released on Capitol Records (in the US).
Produced by Hendrix, Band of Gypsys reached #5 in the US and #6 in the UK.
After Hendrix disbanded the Jimi Hendrix Experience in early-1969, he formed Gypsy Sun and Rainbows to fulfill the contract for the Experience to play Woodstock. Bassist Billy Cox (who had played with Hendrix while they were in the army) had been rehearsing and playing with Hendrix since April, but the band was short-lived.
With Cox and his drummer friend Buddy Miles, Hendrix next formed the Band of Gypsys, this time to fulfill his obligation to produce an LP of new material for Ed Chalpin, to be released on the Capitol label. Hendrix, in interviews as early as March 1969, had already mentioned a “jam” album to be titled Band of Gypsys. Hendrix also mentioned in his introduction at Woodstock that “Band of Gypsys” was an alternative name for the group performing there.

Isle of Wight was a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix, released in November 1971. The album documents Hendrix’s performance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival on August 30, 1970, his last performance in England before his death in September.
The album was engineered by Carlos Ohlms (a British based engineer). The record company did not use a picture from the Isle of Wight concert. The cover photo is from a live concert from Berlin, Deutschlandhalle, September 4, 1970. The album spent only two weeks in the U.K. albums chart, peaking at No. 17.
Isle of Wight contains just part of the concert. The entire performance was released on the 2002 album Blue Wild Angel: Live at the Isle of Wight.

1971 – The Cry Of Love

9. In From The Storm – 3:40

The Cry of Love is a posthumous studio album by Jimi Hendrix, released in February 1971. It was the first Hendrix album released after his death and was engineered, mixed and compiled by Eddie Kramer and Mitch Mitchell. The album cover illustration was by Nancy Reiner.
The pairing of The Cry of Love with Rainbow Bridge comprises the bulk of the most complete tracks that Hendrix was intending to release on his next (double) LP, titled either First Rays of the New Rising Sun or Strate Ahead, the title atop the last documented track list found in Hendrix’s notes. All songs on the album were written by Hendrix and recorded from late December 1969 through the summer of 1970, except “My Friend”. Hendrix’ friend Paul Caruso (mistakenly listed as a fictitious ‘Gers’ on the L.P.) plays harmonica on “My Friend”. Mitchell and Kramer’s involvement gave the album credibility, and it was well received by fans and critics alike. The album managed to reach #3 in the U.S. and #2 in the UK, and was regarded as the most accurate approximation of Hendrix’s final album until First Rays of the New Rising Sun was released in 1997. “Freedom” b/w “Angel” was released as a single in the U.S., but only reached number 59. In the UK, “Angel” b/w “Night Bird Flying” was the single released, though it did not manage to enter the charts.

Hendrix in the West is a posthumous live album by Jimi Hendrix, released in January 1971 by Polydor Records, and later in February by Reprise Records. The album contains songs from Hendrix’s performances at the Royal Albert Hall on February 24, 1969, the San Diego Sports Arena on May 24, 1969, Berkeley Community Theatre on May 30, 1970 and the Isle of Wight Festival on August 30, 1970.
The album’s credits mislabel “Little Wing” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” as being recorded at the San Diego Sports Arena, when in fact these two tracks were recorded at the Royal Albert Hall on February 24, 1969. The album reached No. 7 in the U.K. albums chart, and No. 12 in the Billboard 200.
This album was re-released on September 13, 2011 as part of the Hendrix family’s project to remaster Hendrix’s discography. Since the rights to the Royal Albert Hall performance of “Little Wing” on the original LP are in dispute, the newly-released CD contains an alternative (and markedly inferior) performance.

Loose Ends is a posthumous seventh studio album by Jimi Hendrix, released in 1973. It was the fourth and last Hendrix studio album released after his death by manager Michael Jeffery. The album features a collection of outtakes and jams, with the exception of “The Stars That Play with Laughing Sam’s Dice” which is the sole authorized track by Hendrix (the stereo mix was used on this LP).
The album was engineered, mixed and compiled by John Jansen. (Additional engineering: Eddie Kramer, Dave Palmer, Kim King, Gary Kellgren, Jack Adams, Tom Flye, Jim Robinson). John Jansen refused to have his name listed on the LP’s credits and used the pseudonym “Alex Trevor” on the records sleeve instead. Warner Bros. (Jimi Hendrix’ label at the time), refused to issue this release in the US & Canada due to the sub-par material on it. The UK, French and Japan pressings all had different covers.

Midnight Lightning is a posthumous ninth studio album by Jimi Hendrix, released in November 1975. It was the sixth Hendrix studio album released after his death and the second to be produced by Alan Douglas. The songs used on the album consisted of post-Jimi Hendrix Experience recordings that originally featured Billy Cox on bass and either Mitch Mitchell or Buddy Miles on drums.
Douglas continued his controversial methods he had adopted on Crash Landing and brought in many of the same session musicians to overdub parts of songs. The only original recording (apart from those by Hendrix) was Mitch Mitchell’s drumming on “Hear My Train A Comin’”. In response to the previous outcry from fans and critics, Douglas did not claim co-writer credit for any songs on Midnight Lightning.

Crash Landing was the eighth studio album by Jimi Hendrix, released in March and August 1975 in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively. It was the fifth Hendrix studio album released after his death and was the first to be produced by Alan Douglas.
Hendrix had amassed a lot of time in the studio in 1969 and 1970, resulting in a substantial amount of songs, some close to completion, that were available for potential release. After the death of Hendrix’ manager in 1973, Alan Douglas was hired to evaluate hundreds of hours of remaining material that was not used on earlier posthumous albums. Except for “Peace In Mississippi” (recorded in late 1968 at TTG Studios) and “Stone Free Again” (an April 1969 re-recording of “Stone Free”) both with the original Jimi Hendrix Experience line up, the material used on Crash Landing consisted of recordings Hendrix originally made with Billy Cox on bass and either Mitch Mitchell or Buddy Miles on drums.
