Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At the Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records official bootleg series, is another exclusive component. The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland. The third album by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Electric Ladyland was the last Hendrix studio album to have been released during the guitar icon’s lifetime and reflects his meticulous involvement in every facet of its creation. In his essay, included in the full color 12 x 12 book that comes with the set, veteran Rolling Stone contributor David Fricke contends, Electric Ladyland is the guitarist at a visceral, pictorial peak in his playing and his exploration of the recording studio as an instrument of composition and narrative.

Here is the final part of the sessions that produced Electric Ladyland (the final part to be completed, that is; the later sessions from June and August 1968 were previously compiled).

As usual, everything here is pitch-adjusted to match officially released tracks. Any phase error between channels was removed.
Genre: Psychedelic Rock. Jimi Hendrix's final studio project is also the gem of his discography. Through all 75 minutes of pure psychedelic rock, Jimi sings his most memorable and personal lyrics along with his smooth and funky guitar work. Out of the three records from The Experience, Electric Ladyland easily had the best drumming, and probably some of the best drumming of the 1960's. The whole album is best listened to in one sitting.
