The final studio recordings released by Jimi Hendrix, who died in 1970, came as a bloated and somewhat over-rated double album which, thankfully, was also released in two more digestible parts. Electric Ladyland (Part One) contains all of the double album’s best tracks, which range from experimental noise and heavily distorted guitar overload to atmospheric psychedelia and a blistering reinterpretation of Bob Dylan’s “All Along The Watchtower”. A slightly modified version of Electric Ladyland Part 1 (Track Records 613010, 1968).
