The Jimi Hendrix Experience’s ‘Electric Ladyland’ gets 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition release!

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Jimi Hendrix Experience masterpiece, Electric Ladyland, the third and final studio album by the band, Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings (the catalogue division of Sony Music Entertainment) will be releasing a Deluxe Edition Box Set on 9 November 2018.

The new cover art – a Linda Eastman (McCartney) photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice In Wonderland in New York’s Central Park – was Hendrix’s own choice of imagery for the album’s cover image. The shot was relegated to the inside of the U.S. version on Reprise Records, printed in black and white.

The UK version of the album released by Track Records did not include the photo at all, and instead featured a gatefold photo of 19 naked women, which Hendrix famously abhorred. For the first time ever, the Linda Eastman photo, in full colour, will grace the cover of Electric Ladyland, true to Jimi Hendrix’s original vision.



Available as either a 3CD/1 Blu-ray set or a 6LP/1 Blu-ray set, both packages will include the original double album – now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes – with the LP set featuring an all analog direct to disc vinyl transfer of the album, prepared by Grundman to preserve the authenticity.

Also included is Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career, plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer. This marks the first and only time this has been done with a Hendrix studio album, and gives listeners the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.



Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records official bootleg series, is another exclusive component. The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland. The Blu-ray also includes the acclaimed, feature length documentary At Last… The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland.

Lastly, Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes an accompanying 48-page full-colour book containing essays by music critic David Fricke and producer John McDermott. It is filled with detailed recording information and unpublished photos, including many taken by Eddie Kramer during the recording of the album. Fans get a rare look at Hendrix’s handwritten lyrics and instructions to his label Warner Bros. for the album, drawn from his personal notebook, as well as original Warner Bros. internal memos and alternate artwork for the album.
