This is a collection of the most important interviews given by Jimi Hendrix between 1966 and 1970. Editor Steven Roby has done a stellar job in assembling these dozens of interviews culled from newspapers, magazines, radio, television, and even court transcripts. Dozens of books have been written about the iconic guitarist, but nobody ever knew Jimi like Jimi knew himself.

Roby brings together multiple pieces by English journalist Keith Altham, including Hendrix's last interview conducted on September 11, 1970. There are also seminal stories by a number of leading music critics, including Jacoba Atlas, Ritchie Yorke and Roy Hollingworth. Transcriptions of Jimi's appearences on American television include multiple segments on the Dick Cavett Show and the Tonight Show with guest host Flip Wilson.

In these conversations, the musician talks about everything from his appearance at Woodstock to politics and the racial situation in America. Jimi was always soft-spoken, but his words often exploded on the page. For everybody who loved his music, this is worth checking out.
