Day 5: An Album from the 1960s.
Ah the good old 1960s generally considered as a golden age of musical creativity across the whole spectrum of music, but do remember that for every Rolling Stones record, Beatles record etc there was a top ten hit by Ken Dodd, Rolf Harris or Bernard Cribbins- the 1960s was also a golden age for the novelty record.
So bearing this in mind I have, naturally, headed towards the more experimental side with a Hard Rock album which is infused with psychedelia and smattering of the Blues. The 1968 double LP “Electric Ladyland” by the Jimi Hendrix Experience, which was the final studio album released by Hendrix before his death in 1970. The album is rightly hailed as a masterpiece and has shown to have cross genre appeal with many critics and musicians quoting it as an influence.
Highlight tracks include a stonking cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower”, “Voodoo Chile” and the reprise “Voodoo Chile (Slight Return)”
