Unknown Author – Jimi Hendrix (Discography + lyrics) (1986)

FrontCoverThis is a very item from my collection of music books.

I didn´t find any information about this book, written by an unknown author on the internet.

Jimi Hendrix was an exceptional musician and songwriter and justifiably considered as  one of the most outstanding artists of the twentieth century. The interpretation of him as simply a great or greatest guitarist has in a way overshadowed the sheer beauty of his music.
It is true that he transformed the whole approach to electric guitar playing with his audacious fusion of Chicago blues, R&B, rock and roll, free jazz, you name it. He had an enormous influence on so many musicians and not only in rock and blues circles. Even the great Miles Davis felt compelled to abandon traditionnal “Jazz” structures, even putting a wah-wah pedal on his trumpet, to get the “Hendrix sound” into his music. Hendrix’s influence reached out to soul artists such as The Temptations and subsequent Oscar winner Isaac Hayes who soon featured funky Hendrix-style “wakka wakka” or fuzzy guitars in their arrangements. Of course it was primarily in the field of rock and pop that his influence was so strongly felt and many artists and groups followed suit, featuring elaborate guitar playing in their music.

Hendrix01Jimi’s psychedelic image also launched a trend with many black artists adopting his look, from Sly Stone to James Brown to the young Michael Jackson and his brothers, who took the stage sporting psychedelic costumes and afros, looking like little Hendrix clones. Even Eric Clapton had an afro perm back in 1967, making him look like a white Hendrix fronting Cream !

The fact that he acheived so much in a short time, with such influence, is amazing. There again, what he did get down is frustratingly short of the real measure of his talents. His blossoming as a songwriter in 1967 and 1968 had established him as a major international artist. His three classic albums as The Jimi Hendrix Experience had perfectly suited and even defined their epoch. Two unbeleivable years of creativity and fun, like one long party, which couldn’t have lasted forever. (by hendrix.guide.pagesperso-orange.fr)

Here some scans from this book … And many thanks to the unknown person, who wrote this book ! This is a printed booklet *smile*

It was bought by a 4 issue per year subscription, and ran from 1985 to 1988.

It was a real work of love, as each band got it’s line up and some history if known, and all UK releases by them and type of music etc.. considering this was pre internet, the work involved was staggering.. (by woodbutcher)

And someone wrote in an internet forum called “verygoodplus.co.uk”: “Probably very hard to find but now at least I now know what I’m looking for.”

And here is the No. 6 … (published 1986) … from the Mike Leander Orchestra to The Moods.
