Hendrix Album Best Ever

JIMI HENDRIX's pioneering three and a half decade-old release ARE YOU EXPERIENCED has been named the greatest guitar album of all time.

The 1967 record, which spawned classics such as FOXY LADY and FIRE, was chosen by music experts from Britain's MOJO magazine.

THE BEATLES failed to make even the top 20, although the writers thought their 1966 effort REVOLVER, with its backward guitar snatches on TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS, deserved a place in the list of the 100 greatest guitar albums.

THE ROLLING STONES managed only number 11 with EXILE ON MAIN STREET, while THE WHO were runners-up with 1965's MY GENERATION.

Completing a top three of Sixties releases is a self-titled 1962 compilation by bluesman HOWLIN' WOLF at number three.

Mojo writer RITCHIE UNTERBERGER says, "It's impossible to cram all the innovative ways of playing an electric guitar that Hendrix pioneered on his first album into one paragraph."
