JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE “SMASH HITS” (performed by The Jimi Project)
Smash Hits is a compilation album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Track Records first issued it on April 12, 1968, in the UK and included all four of the group’s singles (eight “sides”) released up to that time, plus four additional songs from the UK edition of Are You Experienced.
Reprise Records did not issue the album in the US until July 30, 1969, and it included some different tracks. It included two songs from Electric Ladyland and a stereo version of “Red House” from a different session than the original mono take found on the UK version of Are You Experienced.
Smash Hits has been reissued several times on CD, including one paring in 1999 with the Live at Woodstock DVD by MCA Records.
