I received the item the other day and could not wait to listen to this version. I own the original import (nude cover), and the 1997 remaster, the best one IMHO.

The print advertising I saw said that it was in 5.1 DTS, and contained 2-track PCM audio. So, if you are into Hi-Res sound this looked like a winner. The product info here at Amazon seems incomplete.

Unfortunately, the DVD did not contain a 5.1 remix of the album, but an extended "Making of.." culled from the original Classic Albums release. To their credit, the video is crisp, and that is in 5.1 DTS or PCM. The video is very informative, special guests like Jack Cassidy & Steve Winwood add a lot.

The CD on the other hand, remastered again, sounded flat with limited imaging and no depth to the soundstage. Tape hiss seemed very loud as well. I was disappointed.

I can understand that tampering with Jimi's original 2 channel mix could be heresy, therefore no 5.1 mix. But, an uncompressed 2-channel PCM audio version would be stunning, maybe some day.

The packaging is good, but 3 stars, for my 3rd edition, is all it deserves in my rating.

I have owned the original Reprise release for many years until it got to a point to where I could not listen to the vinyl. The 2 vinyl version is the best way to hear Jimi Hendrix's guitar work and his vision of each song on the album.
I purchased the CD version and it is alright,but lacks the true distortion and the sound effects going from one speaker to another.
If you can get the vinyl version, GRAB IT1 you will not be disappointed.

I just got it! I have been waiting this moment for over 30 years! Yes, the all analog mastering has it all, and pressing is excellent. The sound is from another planet than in CD. Just feel the magic of Jimi Hendrix on vinyl!

Regards, Hendrix for ever...

The cover sticker promises an all-analog remaster by Jimi's original engineer (Eddie Kramer). It's two nice slabs of 180g vinyl and probably about the only way you can get a copy of Electric Ladyland in analog sound with no pops or crackles. This does have a bright clear sound, and I noticed a lot of detail I never noticed on my old Reprise vinyl copy. Still, this new version doesn't top the original -- analog or not, it's actually a bit too bright-sounding. I'm thinking Eddie Kramer at his age has likely lost some high end on his hearing, and so the new master seems to compensate by bringing out that sound -- it's not remixed, but somehow it accents the high end more. But as a Hendrix nut, I view this as an interesting "retake" -- a new way to hear an old favorite album. I know I'll go back to my Reprise copy more than this one, but I'm glad to have this one.

At first I picked up the CD's of Axis and Ladyland and the vinyl of Experienced. After hearing how much better the vinyl sounds I returned the CDs for the vinyl copies. Really, these are the best sounding vinyl albums I own! A tremendous pressing.

This album "Electric Ladyland" I listen to with headphones on while everyone is sleeping at night. I am one of those people who like to pretend that I am playing the instruments while I listen to music, so I sit in a chair, put the headphones on, crank the music, and hit it baby! I'm so exhausted when the album is over, that I go to sleep immediately. Who needs drugs to sleep, just listen to the right music. Rock on Hendrix!

I am at a loss for words [speaking of Jimi]. I've purchased this recording at least 4 times !!! Since it first came out on vinyl !!! The only question to ask is, Quality of the reproduction?

YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET !!! If you buy a cheap quality reproduction ,,, it will sound like poop.

Pay the money and get GREAT QUALITY ,,, take it from a wise man who has traversed the trials and tribulations of a ca. 60's baby-boomer !!!

THIS CD IS AWESOME, MOST EXCELLENT ,,, IT WILL NOT DISAPPOINT !!! enough said, peace
