The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Electric Ladyland (1968)

I'm hoping everyone already has this album but I'm putting it up here just in case. This is definitely Jimi's greatest release and probably one of the best records of all time due to the vast difference of styles portrayed and the amount of skill each of the musicians posses. The only song I find sub-par is the track "Little Miss Strange" which features the bassist, Noel Redding, singing. Now, don't get me wrong, he's an awesome bassist but I think he should stick with it because this song sounds like the Beatles on ritalin featuring Jimi Hendrix. If you like this song then good for you but I always skip it. Anyyywayy, If you don't already have this, get it right now for the love of Jimi Hendrix.
