  • "Manic Depression"
  • "Are You Experienced"
  • "Third Stone From The Sun"

In 1967, it was the sound of music history being made. Everything changed after the release of Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced, and the album kept on changing things for the next 55 years.

Today, on this month’s edition of the Culture Corner, World Cafe correspondent John Morrison talks about how important that album was, how it happened and what its legacy has been for the culture at large — and for music fans, like him, personally.
