Vinyl Records

​45 RPM

Our first introduction of the Jimi Hendrix Experience was via the 7" vinyl disc, from Hey Joe on Polydor Records in 1966 through to much more recent 7" releases from Sundazed and Sony Legacy. These releases span six decades and the format looks like its never going away as Experience Hendrix appear to both enjoy this format as promotion of fuller titles and along with Sony Legacy, support Record Store Day [global and US centric]. Included here with these 7" singles and EP's are the numerous 12" singles [even the 331/3], box set singles and a few bootleg singles, basically as many as I can detail or get details of. As always these pressings show up with some quirks. Some simply having a different colour label, as in Track records white and black Purple Haze or more obscure with that same title, some pressings are mastered slightly differently though the difference here is often confused with it being a different mix!  Often we get these early releases with wonderful picture sleeves from Japan and mainland Europe, some displayed on page 2. Page 3 is the listing for vinyl singles larger than the 7" presented here on page 1.


The contract Track Records had with Jimi Hendrix had lapsed nearing the end of 1970 and though we had both single and album releases in 1971 on the Track label, Polydor took over the releases after this year.


* Note that with Polydor releases some stamper detail is expressed as:
V = an upside down triangle in all stamped matrix detail for the Track Records and Polydor Records pressings while V is expressed as such.
% = a diamond

This Reprise Records 45rpm has caused some confusion down the years. Stated as a re release and appearing in mono and stereo formats it seems, this re release has a date of issue as 1983(?) or more often the release date is omitted altogether due to the confusion. We have four know pressings of this 45 it seems. Three copies with the usual early tan colour label and the later [1983(?)] yellow, blue, green Reprise label. From The Benjamin Franklin Studios, 4th edition. Part 4: A selected official  discography [Geldeart / Rodham], we have three pictures showing the two variation labels and detailing the differences. Here we have a subtle difference in that the matrix detail differs to those listed in that publication. The publication offers up a suffix after the L-5424 / L-5442 on the mono pressing with W1#1 on both sides. The copy here clearly does not have this. This copy differs as it was pressed for jukebox use. This is the only copy I have seen and dates from 1973. The images shown in FTBFS Vol4 also show one of the early tan labels with the W [Warner] logo next to the Made In The USA text. Again, this is not on the copy listed first.

The stereo version which looks near identical to this mono copy has the following matrix:


A: L-5424-1B T111 


B: L-5442-1C T11


While the later(?) three colour Reprise label mono has a repeat of what is included in one of the earlier mono pressings:


A: GRE-0742 L-5424 W1#1


B: GRE-0742 L-5442 W1#1

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Polydor Records endless re issuing of Hendrix singles from around the globe is legend, be they stand alone, attached with albums, box sets and to confuse matters as mono where the original issue had been stereo or even as fold down from stereo! Also factor in the various size disc and picture sleeves and we have a wealth of releases to catalogue.

This then will be the start!



This release appears as both a 7" and 12" release:

Barclay Records also brought us a set of 12 singles with the generic title of the Jimi Hendrix Story, Vol. Here's detail from a not quite so complete collection:


                                     BARCLAY THE JIMI HENDRIX STORY  

THIS SET WAS RELEASED IN THE EARLY 1970’S AND HAS THREE DISTINCT TYPE OF LABEL THOUGH THE COVER PICTURES REMAIN THE SAME PER RELEASE. DARK BROWN [DB] LABEL, STANDARD CREAM/ ORANGE [C/O] LABEL AND AN ORANGE [O]. THE BROWN LABEL APPEARS TO BE A LATER RE ISSUE AS IT CARRIES A SIMILAR MACHINE PRESSED STATEMENT AROUND THE INNER DEAD WAX AREA AS THAT FOUND ON THE POLYGRAM BOX SET WHICH WAS PRESSED IN FRANCE, EITHER THE VERY LATE 1970’S OR 1980 – 1981. UNLESS STATED, THE DEAD WAX MATRIX DETAIL REMAINS THE SAME PER RECORD REGARDLESS OF EARLY OR LATE ISSUE.

FTBFS 4th edition Pt5 pg 147 both lists and presents a picture of both the variant pressings of this release has the tracks listed as from the BBC sessions.
