Reviews - What do customers think about The Jimi Hendrix Experience (Rex Collections)?
SUPER!!! Sep 9, 2007
Great photos of The Great Man Himself. Full page photos showing Jimi in London from when he first arrived here. He always seems to appear larger than life - really happy to add this book to my Jimi collection.
Virtually all color photos in a big book. Fantastic. Jan 5, 2007
What do you want in a photo book of Jimi Hendrix? You want lots of high quality photos that are not tiny, that are big and all over the book where there's minimal written word and the photos just keep comin'. From the back cover: "Over 130 iconic, rare, and previously unpublished images of the Jimi Hendrix Experience from the archive of Rex Features, Britain's leading picture library." Published 2005. Almost half the photos take up the full size of a page. If it's Jimi photos with and without the band, that you're lookin' for, do not pass up this book. I own about 12 Jimi books and this is the best photo one, no question. My copy has a cover photo that I think is a better photo than the one shown here. He's got a cool coat, a rose pattern shirt and red pants and leaning on a staircase wall with a cigarette.
A top pick for any dedicated Hendrix fan Aug 17, 2006
In 1965 guitarist Hendrix signed with former Animals bassist Chandler and went to England, making a name for himself with his Jimi Hendrix Experience and returning to the U.S. several years later to become a star. REX COLLECTIONS: THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE gathers color photos to follow his career form his earliest London shows and 1967 tours to later years. Many of these photos are new to this book, most are full-page presentations, and the commentary provides a fine survey of Hendrix's life. A top pick for any dedicated Hendrix fan.
