10/27/06 - JIMI HENDRIX Debut Album to be Featured On NPR's All Things Considered Weekend
On November 18th, the All Things Considered Weekend, hosted by Debbie Elliott features Jimi Hendrix's Are You Experienced? album (1967). The show is described as follows: The groundbreaking debut album from influential guitarist Jimi Hendrix launched him into superstar status and included such classics as 'Purple Haze', 'Hey Joe' and 'The Wind Cries Mary'. The segment includes thoughts from guitarist/songwriter Vernon Reid (LIVING COLOUR), engineer on the album Eddie Kramer, and musicologist Reuben Jackson.

NPR's All Things Considered Weekend has selected five historical recordings from the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry to present and analyze in a five-part series that begins this Saturday October 28 on the program. For the past four years, 50 recordings have been named to the National Recording Registry each year by the Librarian of Congress James H. Billington that are believed to be "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" to preserve for all time. The staff of All Things Considered Weekend reviewed the 2005 list of 50 recordings and chose five diverse recordings including the debut album from JIMI HENDRIX. Independent producer Ben Manila produced the series for the program.
