2021 Expanded edition

For Record Store Day November 26, 2021, Dagger released an expanded edition titled Paris 1967. [2] In addition to the tracks recorded in Paris from the original, it includes an additional two songs that were released on the 2000 box set The Jimi Hendrix Experience: [2] "Catfish Blues" (based on Muddy Waters' " Rollin' Stone"/"Still a Fool") and the blues standard " Rock Me Baby". [3]

In a review for AllMusic, Fred Thomas gave the album four out of five stars. [3] He commented on several of the album's songs and concluded, "The rudimentary two-track stereo recording is raw, but it matches the band's energy in what amounts to a definitive example of how the Experience were operating on-stage as they skyrocketed to fame." [3] The expanded edition reached number 117 on the Billboard 200 album chart. [4]
