Electric Ladyland is the third studio album by American / English rock band The Jimi Hendrix Experience, originally released in October 1968 via Track Records.

What can be said about this brilliant album that’s not already been said. Electric Ladyland is Hendrix's third and final album with the original Experience found him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit.

The result was not only one of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix's original musical vision at its absolute apex. When revisionist rock critics refer to him as the maker of a generation's mightiest dope music, this is the album they're referring to. But Electric Ladyland is so much more than just background music for chemical intake.

Kudos to engineer Eddie Kramer for taking Hendrix's visions of a soundscape behind his music and giving it all context, experimenting with odd mic techniques, echo, backward tape, flanging, and chorusing, all new techniques at the time, at least the way they're used here.

What Hendrix sonically achieved on this record expanded the concept of what could be gotten out of a modern recording studio in much the same manner as Phil Spector had done a decade before with his Wall of Sound.

As an album (influencing a generation of players and beyond), this was his ultimate statement. The highlights speak for themselves: "Crosstown Traffic", his reinterpretation of Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower", (which many consider the definitive version), "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp," the spacy "1983...(A Merman I Should Turn To Be)", and "Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)", a landmark in Hendrix's playing.

With this double set, Hendrix once again pushed the concept album to new horizons.

Check out the tracks: “All Along The Watchtower” and “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)”. 

This double album 2LP record set is a "Legacy Vinyl" series reissue (October 2015) on 180 gram audiophile vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve with 8 page booklet and remastered audio, pressed in Europe.
