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 LP reached #1 in the U.S. and #6 in the UK.

Allmusic.com gave Electric Ladyland a rare 5 star review:

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.
