... Perry is quite the raconteur. His blow-by-blow commentary on Hendrix and company's musical dialogue throughout the album's tracks leaps off the page like an epic martial arts battle.
...engaging...Perry is an astute critic and someone who, as a musician, gives credibility to his commentary on the studio process. Best, he brings a fan's fervor to his revivification of a significant moment in Hendrix's three-plus year recording career...
If you already have three Hendrix recordings (or 300) and are moving to by a fourth, take the $10 instead and pick up this nutshell book of how the his third studio album was made, by guitarist / writer Perry who lives in London and whose head seems screwed on pretty tight - he neither wanted to fuck Hendrix or compete with him, just love him. Midway [though] reading this little book you're going to be pulling off the shelf Paris 1966 Olympia Theater Live Recordings, if you know what's good for you, and play it loud. This is the best capsulized 100 or so pages ever written on the late & great 'Jimmy James.'
...any fan of the Hendrix sound will consider it an essential guide.
This is actually two books in one: a track-by-track analysis of "Ladyland," heavy on guitar-geek esoteria like detuning and wah-wah technique (if you have to ask, don't bother), preceded by an overview of Hendrix's life and career around the time of the album. Which, since his career as a headliner lasted only four short years, makes for a pretty good introduction to rock's greatest plank-spanker inspired new series...sleekly designed...good news for sentimental fools that just can't let go.
