I grew up on stuff like this & it's the reason I have no patience or interest in new music.

November 9 The White Album and Electric Ladyland time machine is real

Completely insane headphone album. The production is like an environment of the mind, once you close yours eye with the headphones on.

How he looked, his personality, and how he played combined to create something very powerful.

I borrowed this album from a friend in 8th grade! I did what Joe did, listening to this wonderful music and just reading the album cover over and over again!! By far my favorite album!!!

Greatest Album of all time. Jimi doing what Jimi wanted to do. His dreams and soul were put into this one. The original Experience lineup with Noel and Mitch. Production
Hendrix, Chandler, Kramer and Kellgren making magic happen.

My older sister was 20 when this came out and I was 8 . She gave me her album to listen to and it blew me away! I have never heard anything like it before! From then on I have been a Hendrix super fan. Jimi you are the man! Nobody is even in the same building as you! 🎸🎸🎸👍👍👍❤❤ you will live on forever with your music!

The songs, musically and lyrically, transport me to the era, the past, the future, and beyond.
The Rainy Day, 1983 suite, brings me an alternate universe, where an entire story unfolds.
Epic, would be an understatement.

I've been listening to Jimi for about 2 years and I had never listened to 1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be). Man, thats a motherfucking masterpiece - its incredible. When you think that jimi showed everything and u r trying to play some of his songs, he come and blows everything away. Thank you cosmic blues man, you live forever

One thing about Jimi is that you didn't notice he was black, he transcended that. I talk about him like Joe- completely in awe of him. I reached heaven listening to him.

Well put. I'm 69 years old and have played guitar for 48 years. I'm happy to be old enough to remember when this was a new album. Only caught Hendrix once, but am so grateful for that. I feel exactly as Joe does about this album. I've listened to many times ( in altered states of mind yup!). Years ago while visiting Seattle I went out to Renton and visited Jimi's grave -- that's the effect his music had on me.

"Electric Ladyland", "Axis Bold As Love", "The Cry Of Love" and the New Year 69/70 live album still move me.
I think "The Cry Of Love" is overlooked by many people and contains some of their best work imho.

I love all of Jimi's music but people should really listen to his lesser known jams and instrumentals such as Cherokee mist, pali gap, villanova junction, etc, he had a bunch of amazing jams that are not officially released I own about 60 CDs

I have listened Jim from age of 12 up to 65. I have the same impressions as yours. Thanks Joe.

When he says it changed lives that’s not even cliche. I remember listening to this and thinking I was on drugs and seeing colors and shapes and being completely sober. And it spanned generations. I was listening in 2008 or so. It stands the test of time

I'm old 13 years and I have this album by Jimi Hendrix(I like his music).

A very respectful overview from Joe about the astonishing "Electric Ladyland".
Even after five decades, nobody has touched it.

That's far ahead of the game Jimi was.
I have the original double vinyl with the naked women on the cover, but I'm
tempted to get it again with the new insights from Eddie Kramer etc.

A great review.

Author — Rob Jones


I have the version with the 'naked ladies' cover. Indeed ranks along with Pet Sounds, any Beatles album, Dylan album, as one of the great albums of the '60s.

I have every available Hendrix song on spotify on a playlist, i play it on shuffle ever single day a few times a day. The groove sends shivers through my skin into my bones never have i ever experienced anything similar.
