Jimi Hendrix – Purple Haze

jimi hendrix

"Purple Haze" is a song written by Jimi Hendrix and recorded by the Jimi Hendrix Experience for their second single. It has been referred to as "one of the archetypical psychedelic drug songs of the sixties", although Hendrix described it as a love song. It features Hendrix's inventive guitar playing and a driving rhythm. On March 17, 1967, the single was released in the UK and quickly rose to number three in the British record chart. In the US, "Purple Haze" became the opening track on the American Are You Experienced album. "Purple Haze" is perhaps Hendrix's best-known song and was a regular concert feature. Many live recordings have been issued, including his performance at Woodstock immediately following his interpretation of the "The Star-Spangled Banner". The song has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is also included on several "Greatest Songs" lists, including those by Rolling Stone magazine and Q magazine.
