Fiftieth anniversary pressing of the iconic Electric Ladyland.

3CD + Blu-ray Boxset | 6LP + Blu-ray Boxset 

This deluxe box set includes the original album, remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analogue tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all-analogue, direct-to-disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity. 'Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes' presents 20 demos and studio outtakes, including demos for song ideas Hendrix recorded himself on a reel-to-reel tape at the Drake Hotel, as well as early recording session studio takes featuring guest appearances from Buddy Miles, Stephen Stills and Al Kooper. 'Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68' is part of Experience Hendrix's Dagger Records official bootleg series. The live album documents the band's Los Angeles concert held a few weeks before 'Electric Ladyland' was released. The two-track soundboard recording captures the energy that had the audience in such a frenzy that many concert-goers jumped into the reflecting pool that separated the bandstand from the seats. The Blu-ray features the full-length documentary 'At Last... The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladyland', the first ever 5.1 surround sound mix of the original album overseen by Hendrix's original engineer Eddie Kramer plus the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio. The box set features a full-colour, 48-page book containing Jimi's handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never-before-published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself. Also included are essays by celebrated journalist David Fricke and Hendrix authority John McDermott. All items are contained in a numbered luxe case-made-book for CD+Blu-ray release and case-made-lift-top-box for the LP+Blu-ray release, with new cover art which is true to Hendrix's original vision of the album's cover - a Linda (McCartney) Eastman photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice in Wonderland in New York's Central Park.
