The arrival of this book coincides with what would have been Jimi Hendrix's 70th birthday were he still alive today. He is gone, but his music and art remain. In Jimi Hendrix - The Ultimate Lyric Book,
fans get an inside look at a side of Jimi people sometimes overlook: the songwriter.
hundreds of pages of beautiful photos show the actual handwritten lyrics for songs that have since become classics. You can see Jimi's pen etching out the words to the beautiful and fragile "Little Wing,"
as well as his surreal vision in "1983 (A Merman I Should Turn To Be)."
Jimi was a visionary songsmith, and seeing the words he physically wrote down on everything from hotel to airplane stationery brings you much closer into his creative world. It's a stunningly beautiful 12 x 12 book that belongs on the shelf
(or coffee table) of every Hendrix fan.
