At Timeline on Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland at 50

One of the reasons I love writing about music is that it forces me to live inside the music for a while and allow the music to live inside of me.  I’m constantly curious about who I am now and what today’s music says to me, which is why I mostly cover the new stuff, but this project was fun.  I first heard Electric Ladyland 39 years ago and was able to parse what it meant to me then as well as what it means to me now in the context of evaluating its overall impact, which I think is as powerful today as it was in 1968.

Have a read!

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
