Jimi Hendrix "Purple Haze" Behind The Scenes

For many, the Jimi Hendrix Experience's song "Purple Haze" (from the Are You Experienced album) was transformational in that it signaled the transition from pop music that was the driving the music business to a heavier song that would mark the end of the 60s and carry through until the 90s.

In this video you'll see and hear my buddy Eddy Kramer (who worked on most of Jimi's recordings) play the isolated tracks from the original 4 track recording of the song. You'll also get to hear a track of the song loud and clear that's almost buried on the final recording.

It was Emmaretta Marks who Jim allowed choose the first releases from Are You Experience and for Radio play..! Emmaretta got Jim radio play due to her being the darling of all the DJ's in the Go Go clubs like the famous Peppermint Lounge others who played Purple Haze and Foxy Lady for dancers, this gained Jimi acceptance in America and an underground popularity, and thus then Radio play on the new "underground" FM stations..!
