Format: Audio CD
It's been almost forty years since Jimi Hendrix's untimely death. As part of a reissue program, Experience Hendrix has reissued deluxe editions of his classic studio albums. For this longtime fan, ELECTRIC LADYLAND from 1968 is the ultimate Hendrix album. It's the album where he most fully untilized the studio to create his most enduring album.

There's not much to add to everything that's been written about this album, so I'll limit my comments to what's new with this 2010 edition:

The CD: The sticker on the shrink wrap says "Digitally Remastered," but I'm not sure there is a difference between this and my 1997 reissue. I'm not saying the sound isn't great; I'm just saying I don't notice a difference. [Note: my guess is they are simply playing fast and loose with the wording. After all, it IS digitally remastered; it's just not NEWLY remastered.Both releases were remastered by Eddie Kramer and George Marino.] This reissue contains all 16 original tracks--no bonus material. Running time - 75:27

The Booklet: Thirty-six pages. Lot's of great photos, including an alternate image (which Jimi hated!)from the UK cover photo session. An essay by Derek Taylor. Six pages of Jimi's original handwritten notes for the album. [Everything from the 1997 reissue is included in this booklet with additional photos and some minimal changes in the original layout.]

The DVD: There are no complete songs. A very limited amount of concert footage and nothing filmed during the actual sessions. Mostly on camera interview with original sound engineer Eddie Kramer playing snippets of tracks from the album. Also includes on camera interviews with Chas Chandler, Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding. At no time during the video does Jimi talk about the album.

First off, "Electic ladyland" was remastered for a 3rd time in 1997 and by the Estate of Jimi Hendrix, the brought in no other than the iconic Eddie Kramer (who was the original engineer and produced much of Jimi's original recordings)plus they said on the 1997 remasters to have used the original mix-down tracks, I mean why 13 years later do we all a sudden need a new re-master? Jimi has been "remastered" now so many times its a joke! The catalog first came out on CD in 1990 on reprise records and they sounded like shiet! Then they were very quickly re-mastered, actually within just months of their intitial release, they were deemed so horrible that they were quickly remastered and resold with just a small sticker on the box (they had CD's in long narrow boxes then) the sticker just said "remaster". This wasnt a true remaster but a quicky job using some system called "sonic solutions", a way to remove static and such from the songs, but thats about it, but still big improvment. Also to be noted, Electric ladyland was originally released as a 2 CD set, the remaster changes it to 1 CD. Then in 1993 when Alan Douglas moved to the MCA label, they were agian re-mastered and given new CD covers (dumb idea) they all looked liked the "Voodoo Soup" ill fated CD cover. Those were true remasters and said to use the original mater tapes. Then in 1997 Al and Janie Hendrix wins there lawsuit over Alan Douglass and all the CD's were once again remastered, just 2 stupid years later! The gimmick this time was they went back to the original mix down tracks and remastered from those plus as well as brought back the original artwork. Then now they move to sony/legacy and what do they do.....??? REMASTER the songs......get real!
Then after all that is said....

The album was a masterpiece when it was released, and remains so. There are some passages of 60's-era experimental, drug-suffused one-upsmanship, lending an occasionally dated quality. For the most part, though, the carefully crafted, inventive character of the album remains timeless. Especially at ~$9, this is a must-have for those who lack this album in their collection. (Stevie Ray Vaughan fans will appreciate the shared sensibilities and vision of these two virtuoso guitarists, each having left us far too soon.)

The CD is clearly a remaster of the original recording, and may be a partial remix as well. The equalization, dynamics, and stereo separation is generally more appealing to the contemporary (i.e., digital-era) ear, though the latter seems to be even more exaggerated than the original (to my recollection). Many of the shortcomings and idiosyncrasies of analog multitracking of that time are quite apparent. What would now be regarded as poor production values underscores the creativity required decades ago to produce such rich, multi-layered compositions with limited technical means. Even though the remaster is strikingly different, I like that the integrity of the recordings was largely maintained - e.g., the amplifier hum behind the lead vocals. Breathing of the noise floor due to compression is occasionally distracting, but it is largely a successful balance between preservation and enhancement.

I already had a remaster dating from the late 1990's - haven't had a chance to do a A/B comparison, but I'm not convinced that this release (if it is different at all) warrants getting another copy, if you already have the earlier remaster. I bought it because of the accompanying DVD mini documentary.
