The House That Hendrix Built: Inside the Birth of the Record Plant

How the guitarist's partnership with engineer Gary Kellgren gave rise to 'Electric Ladyland' and one of rock's most legendary studios

It was the winter of 196768, and Jimi Hendrix was looking for a recording studio in New York. His second album, Axis: Bold as Love, was an FM-radio favorite and he had a road case full of tapes he had recorded in London that he was ready to rework.

Warner/Reprise had already paid for his next album (which would become Electric Ladyland), and there was ample budget for studio time, but as Al Kooper recalls, "There were no rooms in New York in those days. I said to Hendrix, 'You want in, you need to book it out; you need to own the place.'"
