Electric Ladyland – Jimi Hendrix

When I was a lad, Jimi Hendrix was almost everyone’s guitar hero. Electric Ladyland was his third and final studio album with his English-American rock band the Jimi Hendrix Experience. It was released in October 1968 and was the only record from the band produced by Jimi Hendrix.By mid-November, it had charted at number one in the United States, where it spent two weeks at the top spot. Electric Ladyland was the Experience's most successful release and their only number one album. It peaked at number six in the UK. The album includes a cover of the Bob Dylan song, "All Along the Watchtower", which became the Experience's highest-selling single. Although the album confounded critics in 1968, it has since been viewed as Hendrix's best work and one of the greatest rock records of all time.

If you like Jimi Hendrix, there is no better album to get. It has an honoured place in my music library and features regularly in my playlists. The other good news is that Prime members get to stream and listen to the entire album for free (check for the correct listing).

This new pressing was a gift for my Brother-in- law for helping my family move home, this does not sound as 'rich' as my seventies pressing but it nevertheless is very enjoyable and an improvement over Compact Disc or MP3 iterations -

Content-wise Jimi's image-laden song-writing conjuring and electrifying orchestration of instrumentation only add to what is without contest one of the greatest aural spectacles of the last century and a towering example of Recorded Music Artistry. Genius.

The 3rd and final album from 'the Jimi Hendrx Experience' is thumping. One of the great albums, from a great era. 'Electric Ladyland' is also Jimi' s last studio album. It starts to get going with 15 minute long 'Voodoo Chile', from chilled to frenetic, it's frequently brilliant. The albums final two tracks are the top picks from a glorious harvest. 'All Along the Watchtower', a Bob Dylan cover so good, it changed how Dylan himself played the song. And 'Vooddoo Chile (Slight Return)' with it's pioneering wah-wah effect. He plays guitar like a demon.
