Releases information

Released: March 1975 (1975-03)
Recorded: 1968-1974
Label: Reprise
Producer: Alan Douglas, Tony Bongiovi

Crash Landing is a posthumous ninth studio album by American guitarist Jimi Hendrix, released in March and August 1975 in the United States and the United Kingdom respectively. It was the fifth Hendrix studio album released after his death and was the first to be produced by Alan Douglas.
Douglas is a controversial figure in the history of Jimi Hendrix as he worked by taking unfinished and damaged tracks and using session musicians, none of whom had ever even met Hendrix, to overdub many of the parts. Furthermore, Douglas credited himself as co-writer of five of the eight songs on Crash Landing, much to the obvious distaste of fans and critics. Despite all this, the album peaked at #5 in the U.S. and #35 in the UK, the highest chart positions since The Cry of Love.

Review by ZowieZiggy
PROG REVIEWER
1 stars After the death of Michael Jeffery in a plane crash in France in 1973, dear Alan Douglas took over the role of ''restoring'' some unreleased studio songs from Jimi, some five years after his death.

It sounds as a work made beyond the grave but apparently it did appeal to lots of Hendrix fans, hence his chart position in the US. The process of deleting most of the original drumming and bass play and replace it by new studio parts is highly disputable but even five years after the death of the master, it was still a good marketing product (I can't call this effort in another way). There are even additional guitar sections played by studio professionals!

I don't know if the title track (''Crash Landing'') refers to the way the previous producer (Jeffery) died but this funky track is quite unbearable. Not that the opener ''Message To Love'' which was a live classic (Woodstock, Band Of Gypsys, Wight) sounds great in this studio version, but at least it is not such a mess as the title track.

One of the worst moment is the heavy ''Peace In Mississippi''. I bet you: there is no way to achieve peace while listening to this mess. A very, very noisy affair which even for my Hendrix favourable ears, is hard to digest and even if this version of ''Stone Free'' sounds somewhat funky, it is still one of the ''best'' track from this album.

As you might understand, this is not the best way to get acquainted with Hendrix's work. On the contrary: this album is best avoided and the only possible rating is one star.

A total and hard crash indeed.
