A ten star album in one star presentation
on 24 January 2012
Electric Ladyland is one of Jimi Hendrix' great achievements and one of the greatest albums of all time...
But this edition is dreadful, with poor sound, the ''distorted ladies' album cover which Jimi hated and the truly stupid track layout of sides one and four on the first CD and sides two and three on the second. What was Polydor thinking?
I think this was the first CD issue of the album, it has a lot of hiss and doesn't sound as good as a decent LP pressing - subsequent single disc releases by Reprise (no longer available) and the Estate are far better and have the correct running order.
Avoid at all costs unless you really must have everything.
