RE/MX: High Fidelity

Jimi Hendrix - “Purple Haze”

In 2013, Rolling Stone listed its picks for the Top 40 Greatest Stoner Albums ever, and Axis: Bold as Love by Jimi Hendrix topped the list as “a virtual banquet of stoner delights.” In reality, every Hendrix release is a psychedelic and/or stoner album by no less than a global rock icon. The man born James Marshall Hendrix backed classic artists like the Isley Brothers, Little Richard and Curtis Knight, but when he broke big as a solo artist in England, he quickly achieved fame around the world and accomplished so much in a mainstream career that lasted only four short years. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted Hendrix in 1992 saying he was "arguably the greatest instrumentalist in the history of rock music,” while Rolling Stone ranked him the greatest guitarist and sixth-greatest artist in history. Other classics include “If 6 Was 9” and “1983,” but his psychedelic classic is “Purple Haze.”
