Get this: there is a Polydor version from 67 that doesn't even include, "Purple Haze."

......just went you THINK you know an album.

'Wish' is what I would play while getting ready to go clubbing back in the day. Open, High, From The Edge Of The Deep Green Sea, Letters To Elise and finally, End = it was time to go!

It's how I learned the album as a wee 13 year old American and it's still the way I prefer the album. Admit it, Clash City is a better opener than Janie Jones (which is all the way on the second side on the US release).
I think their first album wasn't released in the US until after Give Em Enough Rope and they included some extra tracks and rearranged them. To me it'll always seem strange not starting with Janie Jones because that's what I've always known.

Cool topic. There are so many, but the opening blast of "License to Confuse" on Sebadoh's Bakesale immediately springs to mind. Cue it up, turn it up to the point of being too loud, and hit play. It'll scare you at first, but then you'll find yourself happily trashing your room to it...

There are tons of openers I love. These are a few off the top of my head in no particular order.

The opening drum fill to Only Shallow gets me every time. David Bowie's Station to Station is fantastic. Summer Babe comes to mind. Disorder - Joy Division, Welcome to the Working Week - Elvis Costello, Schizophrenia - Sonic Youth, Sunday Morning - The Velvet Underground, Cygnus... Vismund Cygnus - The Mars Volta, Untitled - Interpol, Arcarsenal - At the Drive-In, The Queen Is Dead - The Smiths.

Mazzy Star- Fade Into You (So That Tonight I Might See)
Groundation- What Could Have Been (Upon the Bridge)
Sizzla- The World (Bobo Ashanti)
Hole - Violet (Live Through This)


and the thread winner iz.....


Deftones- Feitercita (White Pony)

Feitercita as an opening track is intense. The riff is abrasive and obnoxious, the attack is bewildering, the drums hypnotic, the vocals dreamy then scathing then dreamy (sort of like all Chino's songs). I mean, is there really a better way to open an experimental metal album?

Yes, also the original track version (I think it was the first in UK) didnīt include Purple Haze, Hey Joe & the Wind Cries Mary, there was Red House, Can You See Me & remember instead of those. I think before 67 it was very common US versions had the hitsingles including, UK didnīt. And I think very many already know Beatles & Stones albums are almost totally different (even the album names & covers) before 67.

About Canadian releases, there were different tracklists also in the seventies & eighties releases. I used to have canadian version of Jethro Tull Benefit, where was Teacher instead of Alive & Well and Living In. And I still have canadian version of first Iron Maiden-album where is Sanctuary as a some kind of "bonus" (itīs not in the end of the album, itīs on middle of b-side). I prefer original versions with original tracklists, but this album I have kept. Many collectors at least here Finland donīt respect canadian versions at all, but to me itīs totally same from which country the album is made as long as the covers & tracklists are original. Of course original version of the album is always the original, but theyīre also quite expensive (just bought original UK Hendrix Smash Hits & it WAS expensive).

Is this the "canadian"-version you meaned?
http://www.discogs.com/Jimi-Hendrix-...elease/4860762

This is from 2010, but I think first versions of this came in the nineties all over the world. It was that Hendrix "Sister" who released it and there are all songs from both US & UK Are Experienced-versions and also the early singles b-sides. All the earlier Canadian versions are same as the US-versions (at least what I found from discogs).

The Cure - Kiss me, kiss me, kiss me
OPening Track - The Kiss http://youtu.be/XzlR8PT9S-A
This song is so fucking awwesome. It sets up the massive double LP that follows.
