Legacy Recordings’ Record Store Day 2018 releases include:

The Jimi Hendrix Experience: “Burning Of The Midnight Lamp” (7” EP, Mono)

Electric Ladyland is arguably Jimi Hendrix’s most authentic and personal work, a realization of music as “my personal diary­ — a release of all my inner feelings, aggression, tenderness, sympathy, everything” (as he said in an interview not long after the album’s release). To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the final album Hendrix issued during his lifetime, this 7” three-song EP offers the rare, original UK mono single mix of “Burning Of The Midnight Lamp,” that was originally prepared by Jimi Hendrix and Chas Chandler in 1967. The B-Side features the original, folded-mono mixes of “Crosstown Traffic” and “Gypsy Eyes” that were created by Reprise Records for a promotional 7” single, first released in 1968.
