About this copy: This copy of Electric Ladyland is a 1980 Japanese issue of an album that was originally issued in 1968.
The cover is VG+ with slight edge and corner wear.
The obi is VG++ with slight wear at the top and bottom edges, but no tears. The lyric insert is VG, with quite a bit of fading/foxing.
The first disc is VG++ with a faint inaudible scuff on each side. The second disc is M-. There are a few spindle marks on the labels.
A nice copy of a classic LP, as the cover is notoriously prone to wear.
Background: Released in 1968, Electric Ladyland was the third album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience and the final studio album to be released in Hendrix’ lifetime.
The album was released in most countries with a cover depicting a number of nude women, though this cover was not used for the U.S. release.
The LP reached #1 in the U.S. and #6 in the UK.
Jimi Hendrix’s third and final album with the original Experience found him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit. The result was not only one of the best rock albums of the era, but also Hendrix’s original musical vision at its absolute apex. When revisionist rock critics refer to him as the maker of a generation’s mightiest dope music, this is the album they’re referring to.
