Jimi Hendrix's 'electric ladyland' set for deluxe 50th anniversary reissue

The package will come as a three-CD/one Blu-ray set or a six LP/one Blu-ray set, with both packages including the original double album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes, and a 48-page full-color book. Also included is Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career, plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer. This marks the first and only time this has been done with a Hendrix studio album. The new cover art -- shot by Linda McCartney -- features a classic photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice In Wonderland in New York’s Central Park -- and was Hendrix’s own choice of imagery for the album’s cover image.

The Electric Ladyland - Deluxe Edition includes the previously unreleased live album Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, which had seen release as part of Experience Hendrix’s official "bootleg" series. The concert documents the band's historic L.A. show held only a few weeks before Electric Ladyland was released.
