1 in stock


Offered for sale is a rare early Japanese pressing of the double album Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix, complete with original obi and a cover that was unique to the Japanese release.

While the cover features a closeup of Jimi’s face, the booklet inside the cover includes the nude photo that was used on later issues of the LP and on the UK cover.

About this copy: This copy of Electric Ladyland is a 1971 Japanese issue of an album that was originally issued in 1969.  The only difference between the first and second issues is one letter in the catalog number: SMP-9301/2 for the first issue and MP-9301/2 for this one.

The cover is VG+, with slight edge and corner wear and a bit of foxing on the inside.

The obi is M-.  As this pressing has a booklet inside the cover, it was issued without a lyric insert.

The two discs are M- and look as though they’ve only been played no more than twice.  Clean discs!

A nice copy of a classic LP, and the only copy of this version that we’ve ever had for sale.

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.

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.
