Notes

Second issue with two-tone orange-top Reprise labels with the Warner Seven Arts W7/Reprise circle logo & address.
Sleeve has Square Reprise identity. No question mark to title, unlike label.
Originally released in August 1967 (Tri-color labels on US).

Text from the record jacket:
"Be forewarned. Used to be an Experience meant making you a bit older. This one makes you wider. With the assistance of Mitch Mitchell (on drums) and Noel Redding (on guitar), Jimi Hendrix breaks the world into interesting fragments. Then reassembles it. You hear with new ears, after being Experienced. Those who've only seen him perform only know part of This Experience. They rave about a young man who plays a guitar in more positions than anybody before him. Now, this debut album will put the heads of Hendrix' listeners into some novel positions. Be forewarned."
