JIMI HENDRIX‘ landmark single ‘Purple Haze’, originally released in 1967, will be reissued on vinyl February 18th by Sundazed Records. The second single by the JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE, ‘Purple Haze’ coupled with ’51st Anniversary’, as it was issued in the UK and Europe, showcases the artistry and mystique of Jimi Hendrix.

This edition—the third release in a unique, ongoing series that partners Sundazed with Experience Hendrix—issues these recordings together on a 45 RPM single for the first time ever in the US, and features the original monaural mixes plus a color sleeve with rare photographs of Hendrix in the ascent of his career.
