Tracklisting & More Information

More Information

Both mono and stereo mixes of Jimi's first two albums were made by Jimi, Chas Chandler, and Eddie Kramer at Olympic Studios in 1967. Final stereo mixing for the album was done on October 31st and November 1st, 1967. Chandler and Kramer completed a mono mix of the album on November 2nd, 1967.

There are noticable differences between the two mixes that make this MONO version extremely special to collectors:

EXP is shorter without the extended feedback at the end and the vocals are louder.

Castles Made Of Sand features a different vocal performance.

One Rainy Wish has a slightly different ending.

There are other subtle differences too across the entire album as a result of the separate mixing to mono as opposed to merely combining the stereo tracks.

Condition
The Ernest J. Day gatefold picture sleeve is a crisp example with deep, rich colours, secure internal flipbacks, & clear spine. This is a nice one owner example & comes with very low mileage. This has some natural bowing from age,the edges reveal some sign of wear with minimal laminate creasing. An Excellent example.

The orange lyric/poster insert is actually the rarest component of this first press package. It is so often missing. This example remains in a really nice condition, with nice & clean panels & off white on the back with no writing or tears & just the lightest spot of creasing from handling over the years. So far, so good!

The black & silver labels have no writing or tears, just a couple of spindle marks by the centre hole to show play [who didn't play this masterpiece?!]. The matrices in the run-outs are machine stamped & end A1/B1. Do be sure to play this classic album on a mono setting as this eliminates surface sounds, of which there is very little. Apart from a couple of very light hairlines, the vinyl remains in a fantastic Excellent condition and sounds amazing even on the Stereo setting.

All in all, we consider this an Excellent copy of the classic & legendary second Hendrix album, more than respectable & complete with the rare insert. One previous owner first press copies like this don't come much better!
