Part of the celebrated 33 1/3 series, Electric Ladyland, Jimi Hendrix Experience by John Perry gives listeners access to the detailed context and content of Jimi Hendrix's multilayered and virtuosic third album. Victor Villar Hauser's lilting British accent draws listeners in to the London of late 1960s, where Hendrix got his first shot at fame. With a short biography, an explication of the songs on the album, and Perry's own memories of seeing Hendrix live during this time period, Electric Ladyland is a celebration of a truly great musician by a guitarist and writer who clearly gives Hendrix the reverence he deserves.

"A banquet - for specialized tastes"
Some of us are rabidly interested in the details, others just want to hear the music and dream.
This detail-packed volume brings back the Jimi Hendrix Experience in the context of their time. A short history moves to a track-by-track dissection of Hendrix' greatest album including the players, the stories and in some cases more information than the players themselves remember today.
Narration is servicable, the breadth of coverage is outstanding. Any Hendrix devotee will find much to enjoy.
"a must for all Hendrix followers"
This is interesting, and I found myself revisiting Hendrix songs with a new ear and more respect for his work. His music still unfolds today.
no, it was entertaining throughout
to complete this audio book, some of the music discussed should be included, rather than say at what min/sec point you needed to find.
Jimi had a love affair with the guitar the likes nobody ever had or ever will. Jimi is the guitar and the guitar is Jimi.
