The Jimi Hendrix Experience: “Electric Ladyland: Deluxe Edition 50th Anniversary” Box Set Review


Thanks to such classic tracks as “Burning Of The Midnight Lamp,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” and their iconic cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower,” Electric Ladyland was yet an instant classic when it was released by The Jimi Hendrix Experience on October 16, 1968.

In honor of the album’s fiftieth birthday, Experience Hendrix and Legacy Recordings have assembled the Electric Ladyland: Deluxe Edition 50th Anniversary Box Set, a mostly interesting but also somewhat flawed 3CD/1BD or 6LP/1BD collection that includes the album, demos, a previously unreleased concert recording, and a making-of documentary.
