Smash Hits (Reissue)

Vinyl LP

Carefully restored from the original analog master tapes, featuring original poster and alternate cover art, the Legacy 2016 edition of the Jimi Hendrix Experience's Smash Hits (created in conjunction with Experience Hendrix L.L.C.) includes timeless classics like Purple Haze, Hey Joe, Red House (a different take from the UK Are You Experienced version), Fire plus 8 more essential Hendrix tracks.

First released in 1969, Smash Hits has proved to be immensely popular, serving as a critical introduction to the Hendrix canon for successive generations of fans.

Smash Hits includes a recreation of the poster that came with the original U.S. LP release, depicting band members Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding dressed in western attire on horseback. The photograph, taken by Grammy-winning photographer Ed Thrasher (Grateful Dead, Neil Young, the Beach Boys) at Warner Bros. film studios in Burbank, CA in early 1969, was conceived as sleeve art for the album.

Now, for the first time ever, Thrasher's photo finally graces the cover of Smash Hits, as originally intended.
