My electrical engineering buddies tell me it was done with changing the phasing of the recording during the mixing process. Hendrix uses this technique in several places in the Electric Ladyland Album. Check out "1983...A Merman" or the title track. These phasing effects were actually "corrected" out on the original LP by Warner/Reprise but do appear on the recently remastered
Agree that Hendrix was pretty much in a class by himself or at least in a class where role call didn't take very long. If you get a copy of Guru Guru's KanGuru record or cd and check out Immer Lustig (starting at about 5min. in, i think you'll get yer' skull elasticized real good. This, the 1st Kollektiv and a handful of other discs make it easy to believe that the most narcotically powerful elements of Hendrix didn't die when his body gave out. The music is out there, but the audience for the most part is not hearing it.
