Eclectic Omens

‘Electric Ladyland’ is a record that commands a certain respect from anyone who’s laid ears on it, which should be everyone but I continue to be surprised and delighted whenever I find a body that ain’t familiar with Hendrix’ wild and weird freakout of an album. It is also true that I am never sure what fucking speed this thing runs at and I could be correct at 33 or we could be in some really strange Jimi & The Chipmunks territory at 45.


The centre hole - which I had not gone so far as to notice in my hastened greed - appeared to be one of those large RCA jukebox affairs. In disappointment, I could only reflect that I would have to purchase the most exotic of adaptors with which to enjoy my ill purchased gains. And then of course, I took the thing right out its dust jacket.
