Product Description

Classic Albums - The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland

Amazon.ca

Can an effective episode of Classic Albums be produced when its subject's creator has been dead for more than a quarter century? Perhaps surprisingly, the answer is yes. With Experience members Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, additional musicians on the order of Steve Winwood and Dave Mason, manager Chas Chandler, and engineer Eddie Kramer telling much of the story, Jimi Hendrix still stands front and center in this hourlong examination of the making of his most ambitious release, the 1968 double LP Electric Ladyland. The series's usual centerpiece (isolating parts of the multitrack tapes to illuminate the whole) is invaluable not only in demonstrating Hendrix's genius for building performances in the studio, but, by extension, implying how the music coming out of his head reflected his heart. The result is possibly the most moving documentary about Hendrix, and certainly one whose rare bits of film (such as a promotional clip for "Burning of the Midnight Lamp") make it even more invaluable. --Rickey Wright --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: DVD
While engineer Eddie Kramer's claim that Cissy Houston and The Sweet Inspirations performed the backing vocals for "Burning Of The Midnight Lamp" remains open for debate, this is a fairly solid documentary. That Jimi was almost 30 years deceased by the time this film was produced is almost beside the point. If anything, it demonstrates how tall a shadow he left behind him.
Electric Ladyland was a true landmark album deserving of such a treatment. Noel Redding's diary is a source for most of the setting and narration of the time and draconian conditions under which this very personal Hendrix album was produced. It can be said, fairly accurately, I think, that the Jimi Hendrix Experience began to unravel during the recording of this album. By then, Noel and Jimi had several physical and philosophical confrontations both in the studio and on the road during an oppressive touring schedule throughout 1967 and 1968. One such confrontation landed Jimi in a Scandinavian jail. Additionally, Hendrix rebelled against the keep-the-song-under-3-minutes directive of producer Chas Chandler. Chandler left the group in mid-production, and Redding, frustrated with Jimi's task-master and perfectionist tendencies in the studio, checked himself out of numerous sessions.
Fortunately for Jimi, Jack Cassidy subbed for Noel on bass guitar for the recording of "Voodoo Chile". Unfortunately for Noel, Jimi dubbed his own bass lines for "All Along The Watchtower" and "1983...(a merman I should turn to be)". As it turned out, Jimi was a formidable bass-slinger in his own right. What puzzles me most about Noel is that I can't understand why he didn't just go along for the ride.

An excellent story about the making of one of the best rock alblums ever made.Those of us who remember when this alblum came out can now see what the GREAT OZ was doing behind that curtain.The sounds in Jimi's head got onto vinyl because of the magical collaboration of Eddie Kramer,Hendrix, Mitchell, and Noel Redding--who got fed up with the delays and effectively quit at this point. But there was plenty of talent available and eager to help out, Jack Cassidy, Steve Winwood, Buddy Miles, among others who made it happen. Eddie Kramer is the main historian here, his memory of how all the tracks were layed down gives the most complete view since Jimi is not available.

While the average Hendrix fan might not be interested in the details of how Electric Ladyland was made, for the musician this DVD is priceless. If you've seen "The Making of Sgt Pepper" and liked it, this is a similar treatment of Electric Ladyland. You get to hear individual tracks and interviews from the engineer and band members on how it was all done. Eddie Kramer, Mitch, Noel, all talking about their memories. You also get a glimpse into the personality of Hendrix that is very different than the wild man image. This movie has given me even more appreciation of this musical masterpiece.

Jimi Hendrix's masterpiece Electric Ladyland has reached the charts standing at number 1 for a long time. This DVD is one of the best it explains everything from the musicians who played with Jimi on the masterpiece Electric Ladyland and others including Noel, Mitch, Chas Chandler, Eddie Kramer, Stevie Winwood, etc. The story of Electric Ladyland is told in this DVD in words, music, rare archival film footage, and from a contemporary diary kept by one of Hendrixs employees. Can it get any better? NO. I loved this DVD it is worth 5 stars so please buy it enjoy!

Jimi is often presented as a great guitarist in the realm of pop music. This film reveals how far from the truth that is.... The incredible delicacy and fluency Jimi created is likened in the film to Mozart, and the comparison is apt. He had an infallible sense of theme, variation, harmony, and conceptual completeness..., and the most compelling thing is that only lyrics were written down. The rest happened in Jimi's 'imagination.' The only place one can experience Jimi down deep where he really lived is found here, in "Jimi Hendrix."

I was really looking forward to this one. As a fan of the Classic Album Series, I was very disappointed when I watched this one. The volume level is very inconsistent, especially during the sections where people are talking over the music. You have to turn it way up when they're talking, then be quick with the remote when the music starts or it will blow your speakers! For die-hard fans only, and keep the volume remote handy. You'll need it!

The DVD was very interesting but for one glaring problem. The creator fails most of time to tell the viewer whos speaking in the interviews. For the Jimi fan who doesn't know everyone that Jimi interacted w/ by face, this is very frustrating. Other than that it had some nice clean footage.
I had much more fun watching the Jimi Hendrix Story DVD...BR>Even though it is presented in Mono.
