Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland 2LP
Regular price $33.00
The great manifesto of the psychedelic rock era, the Jimi Hendrix Experience's Electric Ladyland is the culmination of resounding experimentation and several years of band chemistry, as well as Hendrix's continual development as a guitarist seemingly capable of anything. The trio's final studio recording together, it's also the band's most adventurous, and collaborative. Steve Winwood, Al Kooper, Buddy Miles, Jack Casady, and Chris Wood all make guest apprearances. Featuring everything from sensitive wah-wah playing ("Burning of the Midnight Lamp") to the all-time best version of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," with Hendrix infusing the song with requisite mystery and mayhem, to the magnetic riff passages of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," Electric Ladyland remains one of the most fully realized and referenced recordings in history. And until now, it's never received the sonic facelift it's not only needed, but deserved.
Mastered from the original analog tapes, cut by legendary engineer George Marino on upgraded equipment at Sterling Sound, and pressed on 180g vinyl at QRP, this 2LP set is a sonic knockout on par with the very best audiophile recordings. This is also the first-ever audiophile edition of Electric Ladyland. We guarantee it will absolutely blow away whatever analog or digital version you've heard before.
Ranked by Rolling Stone as the 54th greatest album ever made, Electric Ladyland epitomizes the passion, soulfulness, exoticism, and emotion that makes music such a part of our life. You will not want to live without this record. Even in death, Hendrix lives forever.
