(October 8, 2017): The Jimi Hendrix Experience – Red House

From the 1967 UK release of Are You Experienced?. The song was one of the first recorded by Hendrix for CBS in London in 1966.  The US release scrubbed “Red House” in favor of singles that would come off the LP – “Purple Haze”, “Hey Joe” and “The Wind Cries Mary”.  It took Warner Brothers until 1969 to release the tune in the US, first in July on Smash Hitsthen again right near the end of side D on a double album compilation, The 1969 Warner / Reprise Songbook.
