Reviews

.".. 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."- Joe Pettit, "Ugly Things, "Issue 25--Sanford Lakoff
"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." Austin American-Statesman, 10/17/04

" an inspired new series sleekly designed good news for sentimental fools that just can't let go."" -Janet Steen, Details magazine, Jan/Feb 04"
any fan of the Hendrix sound will consider it an essential guide. The Bookwatch, September 2004
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 The Boston Phoenix, 7/8/04--Mike Miliard
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. Long House Publishers & Book Sellers, 2004
"At certain times in your life, a great record is more important than a good friend...You could write a book about the intense bonds that form between a listener and an album that comes along at just the right time. And now someone has--in fact, a half dozen people have (so far)...[E]ach has a distinct, almost militantly personal take on a beloved longplayer."
