Rare original 1967 UK first issue 13-track MONO vinyl LP with A1/B1 matrices, front laminated gatefold picture sleeve with internal flipbacks, complete with the all important & incredibly rare fold-out orange lyric/poster insert!
Both mono and stereo mixes of Jimi’s first two albums were made by Jimi, Chas Chandler, and Eddie Kramer at Olympic Studios in 1967. Final stereo mixing for the album was done on October 31st and November 1st, 1967. Chandler and Kramer completed a mono mix of the album on November 2nd, 1967.
There are noticable differences between the two mixes that make this MONO version extremely special to collectors:
EXP is shorter without the extended feedback at the end and the vocals are louder.
Castles Made Of Sand features a different vocal performance.
One Rainy Wish has a slightly different ending.
There are other subtle differences too across the entire album as a result of the separate mixing to mono as opposed to merely combining the stereo tracks.
