Product Description

Amazon.ca

If it's true that songwriters have a vision in their head of what their dream album would be, Electric Ladyland was the project Jimi Hendrix hoped would be as close to perfection as possible. No longer content with the rush-recorded psychedelic pop-rock of Experienced and Axis, Ladyland was an exploration of what could be achieved with time, money and experience. Jimi's soul roots from his session days shine through for the first time with the laid-back groove of the title track and the doo-woppy "Long Hot Summer Night" showing a vocal style reminiscent of Curtis Mayfield. It's hard to pick a standout piece as the quality of the album is so high, but the four-part dream segue of "Rainy Day", "1983", "Moon Turn the Tides" and "Still Raining" is a monumental piece of early prog rock continuing the acid-soaked ideal of extraterrestrials, love, peace and war that he started earlier on with "Third Stone from the Sun". However, it's not all spectacular drawn-out blues jams and sublime soundscapes, Electric Ladyland managed to produce Jimi's only UK No. 1 single, "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" plus the timeless classics "Crosstown Traffic" and "All Along the Watchtower" making it arguably the best studio album the Experience produced in their brief career together.--David Trueman

5.0 out of 5 stars A memory that will not be lost Nov. 9 2013
By bernie TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Not being immersed in the music world I may have missed a few nuances however I can pretty much quote from each song in the list. Everyone will have a favorite. The favorite may be base on a Hendrix original or a Hendrix interpretation of someone else's work. I bought this as an album because it is hard for me to pick. If it were to be one for me it would be "All Along The Watchtower." Well I also listen to Bob Dylan. Yet it was Hendrix at the time that carried me through a war and right in time for Woodstock.

Periodically I think back on the time and think "There must be some way out of here,"

If not buying this for nostalgia, or a project, it is work making some new memories of where you are now listing to this classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best! July 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland stands to be one of the greatest studio albums in rock n roll history. The tracks on the entire record represent so much. I think for the must part this album was well finished being in its idenity it was a double lp and back in the sixties a double lp was a big deal. Jimi Hendrix experiments with so much on this album including on And The Gods Make Love......reversed guitar sounds and on Crosstown Traffic hendrix slows the speed down on the guitar with overdubed kazzo sounds. Hendrix also in the process recorded alot of things backwords by reversing the tape backwards. On All Along The Watchtower jimi hendrix gets such a clean sound out of his guitar a very important song on the album. One of my very favorties is Voodoo Chile (slight return) wow I can say much more than this is a must have for anyone looking for some good music please enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Greatest rock album of all time? July 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of a handful of contenders for greatest rock album of all time. It contains unsurpassed richness, variety and beauty, best illustrated by these three: the experimental jazz of Rainy Day Dream Away, in which guitar licks turn to dripping raindrops, the manic, sizzling blues of Voodoo Child (Slight Return), and the epic oceanic adventure of the ponderously titled 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn to Be) / Moon Turn the Tides (Gently, Gently Away). Between these three tracks can be found the genius of Jimi Hendrix in full scope, and a demonstration of what wonders can be done with the guitar. The lengthy 1983/Moon at times seems like a multisensory extravaganza, not merely music. Listen to it carefully, and follow Jimi from a war-torn world of bombs and arguments into an undersea paradise where a new civilization dawns and "man is full of cheer", then back above the water's surface where only a dead landscape remains, a lonely seagull cries, and the moon orbits above, turning the tides through eternity. Can music paint pictures? In Hendrix' hands, it certainly can, and he will make you feel strong emotions of grief, wonder and joy that perhaps offer a glimpse into the elusive soul of the man himself. While the above three songs make this the best Hendrix album ever, there are at least five other 5-star songs: "All Along the Watchtower", "Come On", "Gypsy Eyes", "House Burning Down", "Crosstown Traffic" - and still more! And guess what? Nobody talks about Hendrix' vocals, but he shines as a singer as well as a guitarist. Just listen to the second verse of "Watchtower" - he is powerful and precise while conveying conversational spontaneity, bringing to urgent life Dylan's words "no reason to get excited" and "the hour is getting late". As I said, this album is unsurpassed, or - to use a quaint 1968 phrase that is apt here - mind-blowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jimi's best and most inventive album. June 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
Although Hendrix would really hit his peak while working on the "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" LP, Electric Ladyland stands as Jimi's best finished and officially released work. Here he takes the experiments seen on his previous albums and magnifies them a hundred-fold. Although tracks like "...And the Gods Made Love" seem silly nowadays, their strength lies in the fact that Jimi was utilizing the studio more like an instrument than any other musician before or since. This is also probably the best showcase for Jimi's guitar playing ("Band of Gypsys" could be argued similarly, though). Jimi also plays fine bass throughout, as Noel Redding was in the process of quitting. (And speaking of Noel Redding, his one and only composition on the album "Little Miss Strange", is an underrated and overlooked tune that features very interesting and original chord changes.) Because Jimi was no longer under the pop-obsessed management of Chas Chandler, he was free to basically do whatever he wanted in the album. That meant that he made some fine, experimental tracks like "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" and "Gypsy Eyes", but some people will find his extended jam-like tracks ("Voodoo Chile" and "1983") to be boring and oppressive. Jimi fans, like myself, will love it all, however. The standouts of the album include the title track, both versions of "Voodoo Chile", "1983", "Burning of the Midnight Lamp", "Rainy Day, Dream Away", "The House is Burning Down", and probably the finest - Jimi's brilliant take on Bob Dylan's masterpiece "All Along The Watchtower", where all the elements of the album come together perfectly.
