Released may 12, 1967, just over one month prior to the band's breakthrough performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, the debut album from the Jimi Hendrix Experience is a timeless classic that with an innovative sound that ranged from heavy and hard-driving to soulful and heartfelt, forever changed the landscape of Rock n' Roll. Released two different versions, the original United States pressing contains the immortal hits "Purple Haze," "Foxy Lady," "The Wind Cries Mary," and others. According to the plaque beneath the gold disc, this award was "Presented to the Jimi Hendrix Experience to Commemorate the Sale of More Than 500,000 Copies of the Reprise/Warner Bros. Album and Cassette 'Are You Experienced?'". Framed in glossy black to an overall 17" x 21". In Very Good Condition, with some scratching and peeling to the frame's vinyl.
