‘Official Bootleg’ Label Offers Expanded Vinyl Edition of Legendary 1967 Performance
Dagger Records is proud to release Jimi Hendrix Experience: Paris 67 for Record Store Day (November 26). This 150-gram red-and-blue colored vinyl LP presents the original Jimi Hendrix Experience lineup—Hendrix, bassist Noel Redding and drummer Mitch Mitchell in peak form at the famed Olympia Theater in Paris on October 9, 1967.
“Hey Joe” b/w “Stone Free” was the first single to put Jimi Hendrix on the map; but it was “Purple Haze” that made him a superstar. With a rough set of initial lyrics penned backstage before a gig at London’s The Upper Cut club in December 1966, the song’s evolution eventually saw the finished song debut as a UK single in March 1967 and later in the starring role as the opening track on US release of The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s debut album Are You Experienced in August 1967.
