The Meandering Hexagon

Listener's Log: Electric Ladyland by The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Album: Electric Ladyland
Artist: The Jimi Hendrix Experience
Release Date: October 1968
Date Listened: 21 February 2017
Remarks: The third and final album by The Experience combines the punch of the previous album with the tuneful rock of the first. But there's a lot of fat that could stand a trim. It might've been better to record a few more songs and split Electric Ladyland in two, but whether that was possible is a question for history. But what a powerful conclusion! The last two songs are The best Hendrix ever recorded.
Stand Out Tracks: Crosstown Traffic, Voodoo Chile, Come On, Gypsy Eyes, 1983, All Along the Watchtower, Voodoo Child
