(PDF) Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland by John Perry PDF

Electric Ladyland is one of the greatest guitar albums ever made. During the recording process, Jimi Hendrix at last had time and creative freedom to pursue the sounds he was looking for. In this remarkable and entertaining book, John Perry gets to the heart of Hendrix’s unique talent – guiding the reader through each song on the album, writing vividly about Hendrix’s live performances, and talking to several of Hendrix’s peers and contemporaries.

 

From Booklist

 

A new entry in a series about famous LPs. Perry calls Electric Ladyland the record in which Hendrix “reached his full artistic maturity.” It was also the last album he made with manager Chas Chandler and the bassist and drummer who with him had constituted the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Ready to venture beyond the parameters Chandler’s “manageable vision” set, “for the first time [Hendrix] could allow order to grow out of chaos”–and lead him into “a sea of excess.” Perry recalls the era and how Hendrix fit into it, illuminating such underexamined phenomena as the contention that he was a “psychedelic Uncle Tom.” Nice appreciation of an apparently timeless musician and album.

Review

 

“…an inspired new series…sleekly designed…good news for sentimental fools that just can’t let go.”” -Janet Steen, Details magazine, Jan/Feb 04″

“…engaging…Perry is an astute critic and someone who, as a musician, gives credibility to his commentary on the studio process. Best, he brings a fan’s fervor to his revivification of a significant moment in Hendrix’s three-plus year recording career…” –The Boston Phoenix, 7/8/04 (Mike Miliard) (PDF) Jimi Hendrix’s Electric

“If you already have three Hendrix recordings (or 300) and are moving to by a fourth, take the $10 instead and pick up this nutshell book of how the his third studio album was made, by guitarist / writer Perry who lives in London and whose head seems screwed on pretty tight – he neither wanted to fuck Hendrix or compete with him, just love him. Midway [though] reading this little book you’re going to be pulling off the shelf Paris 1966 Olympia Theater Live Recordings, if you know what’s good for you, and play it loud. This is the best capsulized 100 or so pages ever written on the late & great ‘Jimmy James.’” – Long House Publishers & Book Sellers, 2004

“This is actually two books in one: a track-by-track analysis of “Ladyland,” heavy on guitar-geek esoteria like detuning and wah-wah technique (if you have to ask, don’t bother), preceded by an overview of Hendrix’s life and career around the time of the album. Which, since his career as a headliner lasted only four short years, makes for a pretty good introduction to rock’s greatest plank-spanker.” —Austin American-Statesman, 10/17/04 (PDF) Jimi Hendrix’s Electric

“…any fan of the Hendrix sound will consider it an essential guide.” –The Bookwatch, September 2004

“…Perry is quite the raconteur. His blow-by-blow commentary on Hendrix andcompany’s musical dialogue throughout the album’s tracks leaps off the pagelike an epic martial arts battle.”- Joe Pettit, Ugly Things, Issue 25 (Ugly Things)
