Biography

Biography by Richie Unterberger & Sean Westergaard
In his brief four-year reign as a superstar, Jimi Hendrix expanded the vocabulary of the electric rock guitar more than anyone before or since. Hendrix was a master at coaxing all manner of unforeseen sonics from his instrument, often with innovative amplification experiments that produced astral-quality feedback and roaring distortion. ...

Format: Audio CD
The third album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience was released in 1968 and, more than 40 years on, justifiably finds its place in most people's top ten greatest rock albums of all time.

However the fame/notoriety of EL doesn't really do it justice: to realise just how ground-breaking and innovative this project was, how revolutionary in concept and execution, you need to listen to it against other music from the period. Hendrix re-defined what could be done with the electric guitar and his excellent song-writing, experimentation with sound and uniquely creative lyrics offer a rewarding experience to anyone interested in the evolution of modern music.

The original 2-disk album had 16 tracks of varying length (of course on the vinyl - the only format available until the 1980s - this meant four `sides' of music). The running order chosen by Jimi and put out on release was:

Side 1
1. And the Gods Made Love
2. Have you ever been to Electric Ladyland?
3. Cross Town Traffic
4. Voodoo Chile (the long, bluesy version)

Side 2
1. Little Miss Strange (composed by Noel Redding)
2. Long Hot Summer Night
3. Come on (let the good times roll)
4. Gypsy Eyes
5. Burning of the Midnight Lamp

Side 3
1. Rainy Day, Dream Away
2. 1983: A Merman I should turn to be...
3. Moon, turn the Tides

Side 4
1. Still Raining, still Dreaming
2. House Burning Down
3. All along the Watchtower (Jimi's seminal and definitive version of Bob Dylan's original song)
4. Voodoo Chile slight return (the 5-minute full-on version with that famous intro)

Now, this album contains everything: first-class electric blues (`Voodoo Chile'); experimental soundscape (`And the Gods...

Every time I hear this album, I hear something new!
Upon recently rediscovering "Electric Ladyland", I find many, if not most of the tracks could have been released anytime within the last 40 years! It seems ironic though, that the recording techniques used, to give a sci-fi/modern theme, ie varispeed, tape reversal etc, actually date the tracks on which its used!
This was Jimi's third album and the first to use outside musicians. "Long Hot Summer Night" contains some fantastic piano by Al Kooper, and great backing vocals by Jimi, providing a great gospel vibe to the whole track. Jimi's rhythm guitar absolutely shines. Jack Casady (Jefferson Airplane) provides Bass, and Steve Windwood (Traffic) Organ, to "Voodoo Chile" Mike Finnigan and Buddy Miles provide Organ and Drums to "Rainy Day Dream Away/ Still Raining Still Dreaming. Chris Wood and Dave Mason, both of "Traffic" are also on the album, providing Flute and Guitar. Even Brian Jones (The Rolling Stones) manages to add Percussion to "All Along The Watchtower".
I can very highly recommend this absolute classic. Try it with headphones for a true 60s Experience!!

Format: Audio CD
This latest incarnation of Electric Ladyland (it is unclear whether this is a new remastering or not) comes with a DVD of the 1997 Classic Albums documentary, expanded to 85 minutes (around twice the length of the televised version).
That the album is a masterpiece is not in question. That it, along with Sgt Pepper, heralded the-way-that-an-album-should-be-made lends it a slightly dubious legacy to those who favour the get-it-down-quick approach to rock'n'roll.
The documentary consists of Ladyland engineer Eddie Kramer revisiting the original 8-track tapes song by song at a mixing desk. The bearded, pony-tailed Kramer does a good job of hosting the piece, though his resemblance to Eric Idle's character from The Rutles is uncanny. The usual suspects are interviewed, including Mitchell, Redding, Chandler, Winwood, Dave Mason, Buddy Miles and Jack Casady (clutching the most beautiful gold-coloured semi-acoustic Gibson bass guitar).
The film, however, gives insight into the necessity of this new, time-evaporating approach in this particular instance with this particular genius. Kramer sheds light on the painstaking but innovative experimentation Jimi took to get the sound exactly how he envisioned; the mandolin effect on `Burning of the Midnight Lamp'; the comb kazoo on Crosstown Traffic. He highlights Jimi's virtuosity; arranging and layering multiple vocal and guitar tracks to make, well, beautiful timeless music.
We know that the sessions were full of hangers-on, which pissed-off both Noel and Chas, who, with hilarious Geordie logic, observes that "if you were a car mechanic you wouldn't take your friends along to watch you fix a car.

Format: Audio CD
I was 12. After badgering my Mum she'd bought me a cheap Spanish Acoustic guitar for my birthday. I'd driven the family mad plinking away at the damn thing, but had mastered some basic chords and a couple of easy songs. Then my brother, then 18, came home with a copy of this album; with its original cover of 19 naked women on it. Teenage male hormones beginning to assert themselves in me, I took an interest in said album cover. Further inspection showed it to be a double album. Never one to do things in order I put on side 4 first. 'Well! Hello!' a wah wah guitar perfectly intoned. What! I was hooked. The up beat but still laid back funk of Still Raining, Still Dreaming gave way to House Burning Down with wonderful fills and impeccable soundpainting throughout (especially Jimi's wonderful giant boat from space landing with eerie grace). Next up was all Along The Watchtower, and to wrap it all up Voodoo Chile (Slight Return) that was, and still remains utterly astounding. How was guitar playing like this possible? I soon learnt that everyone has always asked the same question since late1966.
This is Jimi's magnum opus. If Are You Experienced, Axid Bold as Love, The Woodstock Star Spangled Banner, that killer live version of Johhny B Goode from Berkeley; if none of those existed but this did, he would still be considered the most gifted musician ever to pick up the electric guitar.
If you're used to modern heavy metal with often somewhat scary looking gentlemen performing feats of considerable technical skill on the guitar but haven't heard any Hendrix, give this a go. This is what happens when technical mastery and limitless musical imagination combine.
