Probably politically incorrect in 2022 but personally I have always preferred the UK 'nak*d women' album cover. I did originally buy this album in a double-gatefold sleeve the UK version on Polydor records back in 1981 although a number of original Track records that the album was originally released on back in late 1968 were still available in the basement of the Camden Town Record And Tape Exchange back in the early 1980s. Anyway I very much doubt if Experience Hendrix the family run company that has looked after Jimi's recordings since 1994 would ever re-release the album with the 'nak*d women' cover again even on cd?. Apparently what I have read Jimi was suppose to have disliked the UK album cover so I can't see Janie Hendrix Jimi's half-sister and who runs Experience Hendrix ever re-releasing the original UK album cover version.
My original vinyl copy of the album features said [email protected] women. Yeah, we do live in different, more sensitive times indeed. I was listening to the cd release so I found and posted the featured cover.
An incredibly complex and difficult album to get into, it is indeed a fine album but I personally wouldn't call it their finest hour. Foxtrot and Selling England By The Pound would get my vote for that.
