Jimi Hendrix–The 70th anniversary of his birthday commences today

From our stacks, we have the newly released book Hendrix on Hendrix: Interview and Encounters, edited by Steven Roby.  It includes transcriptions from European press, Afro-American publications and court transcripts from the 1960’s.  Other books and biographies available in our stacks include Tim Sandlin’s fiction riff Jimi Hendrix Turns Eighty, Charles Cross’s A Roomful of Mirrors, anf for musicians and technical music enthusiasts, we have The Jimi Hendrix concerts : authoritative transcriptions for guitar, bass, and drums with detailed players’ notes and photographs for each composition / transcribed for guitarists with notes for players by Jesse Gress ; bass transcriptions by Mike DuClos ; drum transcriptions by Dave Hershey.

Alas, many of the Community Library’s Hendrix music CDs are no longer accessible–Hendrix is one of the few items we have a hard time keeping in the collection–the CDs have the dubious honor of being among our most commonly lost or ‘gone missing’ items.  However, his iconic live performance at Woodstock is available on a DVD documentary–Woodstock; Three days of Peace and Music.

The Media department does appreciate donations of music CDs  or DVDs to replace self-weeded items!  Rock on, @The Community Library!
