9. Jimi Hendrix - Electric Ladyland
The third and final album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience was a double - and produced under the watchful eye of Jimi himself. A huge beast of a record, it bears all the hallmarks of the psychedelic production of the time: backwards guitars, flanging and all manner of outrageous studio effects. The songs aren't bad either, with Voodoo Chile (its 15 minute original and "Slight Return" reprise), Crosstown Traffic, Gypsy Eyes and the incredible cover of Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower. The sleeve, featuring 19 nude women, remains one of the most inappropriate record covers ever! Hendrix issued one more live album before his death on 18 September 1970.
