Another Hendrix classic
on 6 March 2014
Hendrix delivers his third (and final) Experience album and it is hard to argue against giving it a 5-star rating. Several of 'Ladyland's' brilliant tracks were released as singles ~ 'All Along The Watchtower', 'The Burning Of The Midnight Lamp', 'Crosstown Traffic', 'Gypsy Eyes' and 'Voodoo Chile (Slight Return).
For those looking for a juicy blues workout the 15 minute version of 'Voodoo Chile' will definitely satisfy you, whilst '1983...(A Merman I Should Turn To Be) demonstrates Jimi becoming increasingly experimental and progressive in his musical leanings. Personally, I find the shorter material more satisfying; 'House Burning Down', for instance' is direct and immediate - full of fire and fury. This 1968 release is a must for rock music fans of all ages.
