A beautiful copy of a classic LP and the only copy we’ve ever had for sale with this cover.

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.
