Anniversary of Jimi Hendrix's Electric Ladyland Celebrated In The Studio
The landmark album was so significant that the syndicated radio show has broken up the celebration into a two part special with part one streaming right now.
The show sent over this quote from the special, which comes from Hendrix biographer John McDermott, "By the time you get to Electric Ladyland, the third album, it's really Jimi having graduated from that education Chas (Chandler) provided him.
"I think Hendrix saw that he had made two very successful albums based on short compact songs, kind of in that Chandler mindset...The technology change in America with the Record Plant being a 12 track studio fascinated him, and I think Chas was a little too inflexible early on and didn't give Hendrix the time to experiment."
