Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Bursting with ideas and energy, Jimi Hendrix's second album release of 1968 (following Axis: Bold as Love) was a double-LP set that showcased virtually everything the guitar genius had to offer: blistering blues ("Voodoo Chile"), galaxy-patrolling space jams ("1983... A Merman I Should Turn to Be"), psychedelic soul ("Crosstown Traffic"), and skyscraping rock ("Voodoo Child (Slight Return)"). In the midst of all this was even a hit song--Hendrix's remarkable reading of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," featuring a series of baton-passing guitar solos, all distinct and brilliant. Seemingly diffuse when first released; in hindsight, kaleidoscopically eclectic. --Billy Altman

5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Hendrix Album January 15, 2000
Format:Audio CD
After decades of listening to literally thousands of records and CDs, "Electric Ladyland" still holds a strong position in my list of top 5 recordings of all time. After two landmark albums of the psychodelic era, Hendrix reaches new heights of creativity in the incredible "double LP" release. The long version of Voodoo Chile, which features Steve Winwood and Jack Cassidy (bassist from the Jefferson Airplane), is one of the best hard blues jams of all time. Following a set of shorter titles, including the superb "Gypsy Eyes" and "Burning the Midnight Lamp", you are presented with another great blues jam --- "Rainy Day, Dream Away". Now that Jimi has your blood really flowing, he soothes you back to earth with the dreamy combination of "1983" and "Moon, Turn the Tides". You then soar back up with four more acid rock masterpieces, including the famous Hendrix cover of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower". If you do not own any Hendrix albums, this is absolutely the one to get! You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Electric brilliance October 30, 2003
Format:Audio CD
When Jimi Hendrix's album Electric Ladyland was released in 1968, it blew all of the competition out of the water (including Jimi's previous two albums). First off, the scope of this album is stunning; so far reaching, in fact, that it was released as a double LP set, something that was fairly new at the time. However, even in 2003, listening to this album is still amazing as the listener often wonders "How did he get that sound?" or "How does he come up with this stuff?" I, for one, am absolutely in love with this album, and I think that this is his best effort (beating out "Are You Experiecnced" by just a fraction).
I have been listening to this album for about a year now, and I still haven't found all the little subtleties and nuances, so I won't dive into those too deeply, but they're there, believe me. The opening cut, "And the Gods Made Love" shows that Jimi was a master studio technician as well, mixing odd sounds and backwards tapes to give us something that sounds like wind blowing at first listen, but subsequent listens reveal odd sounds that weren't quite noticeable before, and there is even a tape of Jimi's voice that is slowed down and played backwards (rumor has it that he is saying "Ok, one more time" or something to that effect). Next we move into the second intro track, "(Have You Ever Been) to Electric Ladyland", in which Jimi soothes us with his voice, preparing us for the mind-blowing journey that lays ahead, which all comes crashing down on us with the blues-pop jam "Crosstown Traffic."
From here on, this album takes many twists and turns. The 17-minute blues jam "Voodoo Chile" sits next to a nice Noel Redding piece, the psychedelic pop "Little Miss Strange," on which Noel even gets the lead vocal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go To Electric Ladyland December 7, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As influential as they are, it's hard to believe that The Jimi Hendrix Experience only released three albums. While each were brilliant in their own right, Electric Ladyland is their masterpiece. Originally released as a double album, it brimmed with inventive guitar work, suitably trippy lyrics and Mr. Hendrix's best vocal work. From the simplicity of "Have You Ever Been To (Electric Ladyland), to the fire of "Crosstown Traffic", to the psychedelia of "1983" to bizarre experimentation of "And The Gods Made Love", the album offers the listener as buffet of sounds. The two versions of "Voodoo Chile" are outstanding, the first version is a 15 minute jam with Steve Winwood and Jack Cassidy that burns up and the second has that famous wah-wah guitar riff. His take on Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" gave him his only top forty hit. "Come On (Let The Good Times Roll)" and "Burning The Midnight Lamp" are two album cuts that don't alot of play, but rank up there with anything else on the album. Electric Ladyland is a musical landmark and it secured Jimi Hendrix's place as one of the giants in musical history.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Rock Music's High Points March 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I love the long albums. Electric Ladyland is one of classic rock's great double albums. (Its all contained on one disc now but it used to take vinyls to hold all the music contained herein.) Unfortunately this is the last studio album released in Jimi's all too short life time. However the fortunate thing is that it ranks as probably his greatest accomplisment.

The album begins with the thunder and strange sound effects of "And the Gods Made Love" before kicking into one of Jimi's classic ballads, "Electric Ladyland."

The rockin' "Crosstown Traffic" then gives way to the album's first epic, the slow blues burner "Voodoo Chile." (not to be confused with Voodoo Child.) The song is a nearly seventeen minute performance featuring blazing solos from Jimi and Traffic keyboard virtuoso Steve Winwood.

Track 5 written by Noel Redding is the album's only low point. Its a just a dated piece of cheesy pyschedelia. Fortunately Jimi's music makes up the remainder of the album. A couple of rockers followed by pyschedelic masterpieces "Gypsy Eyes" and "Burning of the Midnight Lamp" lead us to what truly makes this one of rock's greatest musical statements.

Beginning with the jazzy "Rainy Day, Dream Away," we are treated to some of the best pyschedelia ever put on record, the sci-fi epic "1983." This song is a orgy of guitars, flutes, and great studio sound effects.

The final three tracks are some of the finest Jimi ever commited to tape. "House Burning Down" reflects the political unrest of the time. "All Along the Watchtower," is one of those rare cases where a cover tune up stages the original. Considering that Bob Dylan is the one who is covered, this was no small feat.
