Alan Douglas

 

 

WirePg24Alan Douglas is an American record producer who has worked with Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis, Lenny Bruce and the Last Poets. He runs his own record label, Douglas Records.

Douglas' production work on many of Hendrix's posthumous releases was controversial. On nearly all the tracks on the Crash Landing and Midnight Lightning LPs Douglas replaced the original drum and bass tracks and added guitar overdubs newly recorded by session musicians, as well as adding female backing singers to one track. On the much later Voodoo Soup compilation album he wiped original drum tracks on two songs and replaced them with Bruce Gary.

Second, on the 1993 CD releases of Hendrix’s three studio albums, the original album artwork and packaging were scrapped in favor of new renderings of the Jimi Hendrix Experience.

However, Douglas's supporters credit him with maintaining, if not reviving, Hendrix’s musical legacy during the 1980s and 1990s and note that many younger fans appreciated the access to the then out-of-print material included on many of Douglas’ releases.
