After decades of listening to literally thousands of records "Electric Ladyland" still holds a strong position in my list of top 5 recordings of all time.
Bursting with ideas and energy, Jimi Hendrix's second album release of 1968 (following Axis: Bold as Love) that showcased virtually everything the guitar genius had to offer..
Hendrix reaches new heights of creativity in the incredible " 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 Hendrix's remarkable reading of Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower," featuring a series of baton-passing guitar solos, all distinct and brilliant.
: 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)).
Seemingly diffuse when first released; in hindsight, kaleidoscopically eclectic.
Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Child (Slight Return) (Original)
this is basically the guitar equivalent of the bible
Jimi Hendrix - All Along The Watchtower - Music Video
The greatest guitarist who's ever lived.....there will never ever be anything like this man again.....
All props to clapton, page, beck, stevie ray, etc.....but this is the master of the stratocaster!!!!
Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic
Believe it or not Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding do the backing vocals on this!
miss the New York this vid cameos - mad, edgy, vibrant, dirty and alive. Some cities should never be cleaned up. Give me the freaks, the panhandlers, the vagrants and the smokers. There's nothing more boring than cleanliness and perfection... I think you need a bit of dirt and clash and excitement in anything. :)
Jimi Hendrix Burning Of The Midnight Lamp
This is visually the simplified version. There was much more going on in the studio to create this great song. There just aren't words to explain the scope of Jimi's (and crew) creative imagination(s
Jimi Hendrix - ...And the Gods Made Love
I think Steve Vai's "Alien Water Kiss" was heavily influenced
Jimi Hendrix - Rainy Day, Dream Away - Still Raining, Still Dreaming
This is an edited version of the two songs, from the Electric Ladyland LP (The Jimi Hendrix Experience)
This tune offers the ultimate Jimi blend - blues, jazz, and psychedelic rock. My favorite Jimi song, and that's saying a lot since I like them all
Jimi Hendrix - Voodoo Chile
THE FINEST " JAM " EVER RECORDED..
One of Mitch Mitchell's greatest drum-tracks. Every second of this 15-minute epic just drips with atmosphere. Hendrix could paint pictures with his guitar.
