In November , a handful of British record stores banned the Jimi Hendrix Experience's new album from their shelves due to its cover art. Nobody involved seemed particularly impressed with the final results. Everyone looked great, but the picture makes us look old and tired. The idea, of course, was to generate publicity, but as Perry points out, the ban was limited to "a few provincial record ships in York, Hull and Bristol," and their decision sparked only minor coverage in the country's tabloid papers. Besides, Electric Ladyland was one of the most eagerly anticipated albums of the year and needed no help selling in large numbers.
