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!
