EDITORS’ NOTES

On Electric Ladyland, Jimi explores the recording studio for a double LP beyond compare. Every aspect of Hendrix’s genius comes to life on his third and final studio album. There’s the intense hard-rock punch of “Crosstown Traffic”; the two masterful, very different versions of “Voodoo Chile”; the radical, rollicking interpretation of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower”; and the dreamy, multilayered beauty of “1983…(A Merman I Should Turn to Be).” This is the sound of a genius dreaming.

Incredible

I can't believe I am the first to write a review!! But anyway this is an absolutely fantastic album from start to finish. In my opinion, it is the best The Jimi Hendrix Experience has ever done. All of the songs on this album go together so nicely to create what is a fantastic album. Best song: All Along the Watchtower. But you should buy the album. A must have for any Hendrix fan (he only made 3 studio albums). So buy it, listen, and be blown away.

Buy this!

Of course, this is a fantastic album, my favorite Hendrix album, although it is hard to pick.

I think what the last reviewer might have been saying about not liking the digital booklet is that the Apple Store automatic cover art retrieval apparently has somebody's whacko version of the album cover art for this and I think Jimi's first album, which I own and ripped to iTunes. When iTunes automatically searched for the cover art I got bogus album cover art somebody hacked in. Kind of funny but a pain to go through the extra bother of finding the authentic album cover art to paste into iTunes for this album. Is this common? If you need to do this, copy the correct album cover to the clipboard, select all of the songs of the album in iTunes, select Get Info (command-I on a Mac), click once where the album art goes, paste the image, and click OK.
