Both albums represented the popular height of 60's psychedelia, and heralded the gruesome demise of the flower power scene at the same time.
A nod to Macca...'Helter Skelter' is still one of the most skull-crushing tracks ever recorded. It's hard to imagine that the same guy who created that bunker-busting bass line/throat-shredding screamed vocal is the same guy who sings 'Honey Pie'.

Harrison's guitar work on Skelter was absolutely Heavy as it got for that era. By the by, Voodoo Chile slight return from Electric Ladyland formed the template for Stevie ray Vaughn's guitar playing style along with Lonnie Mack's early stuff. Hendrix was a bad Mother Hubber. Recall great day's late seventies cruisin' around with buddies in a 64 impala rag roof listenin to 'Are you experianced' and the Stone's "More hot rocks big hits and fazed cookies" on the 8 track Whilst simultaneously High-Low- and sideways on whatever elicits we could score. Was there ever a more sublime track than '2000 light years from home' on stereo?
