Offered for sale is a UK pressing of the double album Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix, featuring the infamous nude cover that was not used for the U.S. issue.
About this copy: This copy of Electric Ladyland is a 1988 pressing on the Polydor label of an album that was originally issued in 1968.
The cover is VG++ and very close to M-, with trace edge and corner wear and a small 1″ (2 cm) split at the top center of the cover.
The two discs are M- appear to be virtually unplayed. There are one or two very faint sleeve scuffs.
This copy comes from our own collection. We purchased it new in 1988 from a UK wholesaler and it’s probably been played no more than three times.
This may be the nicest copy of this album that we’ve ever had, 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.
