The authors trace the musical development of rock guitar master Jimi Hendrix through a detailed examination of the guitarist's studio sessions. Producer of the Hendrix tribute CD, Stone Free, and the author of Hendrix: Setting the Record Straight (Warner, 1992), McDermott begins in 1963 with the session work Hendrix did for such performers as Curtis Knight and the Isley Brothers. He continues with Hendrix's classic, most popular work such as "Hey Joe" and "Purple Haze," progresses through the Band of Gypsies era, and ends in 1970 with the guitarist's untimely death. Though McDermott sheds little new light on the much-examined guitarist, his restraint in concentrating on Hendrix's musical development and lyrics is refreshing. McDermott offers a well-written, well-researched book with a selective discography and 100 photos that will serve well as a companion to his earlier book and Harry Shapiro and Caesar Glebbeck's definitive Jimi Hendrix: Electric Gypsy (LJ 7/91).
