Jimi Hendrix – Electric Ladyland
From the first clue you can see that Electric ladyland It’s not just another rock n roll album. This is Jimi Hendrix’s latest psychedelic journey and what a journey it is. If you like listening to music that is more than something to sing about, but a true “experience”, then this is an album that I beg you to check out.
You can feel like you’ve heard everything you need to hear from Hendrix because he has one of his greatest hits albums. I understand that feeling as I used to feel that way, but their albums are worth checking out, particularly this one which was The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s third (and sadly last) studio album.
It contains some songs that you are probably very familiar with, such as “Crosstown Traffic,” “All Along the Watchtower,” and “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” but many of the songs that you probably haven’t heard before and promise to be the real thing. pleasure.
“Voodoo Child” is a 15-minute epic that begins as a simple blues song before finally blasting off into interstellar territory. But my vote for the most mind-blowing sequence on the album begins with track 10 “Rainy Day, Dream Away” and ends with track 13 “Still Raining Still Dreaming.” Included in that sequence is the incredible 13-minute mind warper “1983 … (A Merfolk I Should Become)”.
The album also includes “Little Miss Strange”, which is unusual in that it features the band’s bassist, Noel Redding, on vocals instead of Hendrix. Redding also wrote the song which is similar in style to some of the psychedelic pop bands of the time (but with Jimi Hendrix on lead guitar).
This is a great album that includes great songs, interesting experimental production, and wacky arrangements. It is a must for anyone who appreciates mind blowing rock music.
