6. Jimi Hendrix - Are You Experienced
The debut album of the man who would forever change guitar playing, Are You Experienced crossed an endless number of cultural boundaries, inspiring everyone from Neil Young to Ron Asheton of the Stooges. Songs like "Purple Haze," "Foxy Lady," and "The Wind Cries Mary" speak to Hendrix's understanding of British Invasion mod-pop, which he then turned inside out and infused with real American soul, showing all the Brits how the blues were really played.
