From the Vault 486: Legendary Music Producer Eddie Kramer
PRA Archive #: 

On this episode of From the Vault we take an insider's peak into the man maybe most instrumental in capturing the supersonic intergalactic sound of Jimi Hendrix, legendary music producer and engineer Eddie Kramer. Former KPFK music host Carlos Nino sat down with Eddie Kramer on November 28, 2010 - the day after what would have Hendrix's 68th birthday - to trace the trajectory of their brief but important time together. We'll hear some great stories about Hendrix and his creative process, and get a sense of what working with him was like. Kramer helped capture and realize Hendrix's groundbreaking vision on his three studio albums, Are You Experienced, Axis: Bold as Love, and Electric Ladyland, as we Hendrix's live album from 1970, Band of Gypsies; Kramer was also the recording engineer for the legendary 1969 Woodstock concert.
