"Are You Experienced?" by the Jimi Hendrix Experience (US cover)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience "Are You Experienced?"  1967 (USA/UK)
Ever since I first heard this album at age 14 it has been one of my all-time favorite records.  Nobody ever came out with a more earth-shaking debut album, and even aside from the revolutionary guitar playing, this is a perfect collection of rocknroll songs.  Some may claim the UK version of this album was better, but that's nonsense;  the US version (released a few months later) replaces three non-essential tracks with single sides (the classics "Purple Haze", "The Wind Cries Mary" and "Hey Joe" -- I mean, how could this album NOT start with "Purple Haze"??) -- and furthermore, the album art on the US version is far groovier.  Jimi would have been 64 years old this week.
