Book received yesterday in very good conditions. It's a very good idea to present a chronological story while concerning a few days of February, 1969, with many details told by you which lived the event. There is a great deal of beautiful photos. A must have. Congratulations and thank you Ben.

Read the book: Great description of WHAT was around the band, the problems, the pressure, this disperate search of love Hendrix had... or to BE loved... or the HAVE the power of love... dunno... Great reading, I understood more... Noel increasing anger... Great book.

Ben, I'm deeply in the reading of your last book and I wanted you to know, more than just compliments, how much I like it, the insights are just amazing, all these interviews plus your own relevant experience and photos! I guess it'll end up in my top 3 of the best Hendrix books ever. You did it right, no web site will ever top a great book! Thanks for your big valuable work. – (name withheld), France.

What a great surprise to find your latest piece of work in the mail yesterday. Guess, what I did all evening… First of all I want to thank you for this meticulous work of dedication. I can't think of any further details one might want to explore with regards to the subject. This must be the mother of all books dealing with the JHE/RAH stuff. That said, I was astonished to read – and learn quite a bit - about the context the gigs took place in. I think you covered The Man with all his greats and flaws alike, which may be doing him justice insofar, as he's not simply worshipped as a hero without any faults, but rather as a human being (though an absolutely outstanding one) with its shortcomings too. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and looking at the photos. – (name withheld), Switzerland.

One Last Experience

There’s more to this than meets the eye. This certainly applies to the concert The Jimi Hendrix Experience gave at the Royal Albert Hall in London on 24 February 1969. To us spectators it was a special night nonetheless, a memorable one. Anyone watching the group that night, the 17-year old author included, had no idea what forces were alive behind the scenes. This book tells the story of that legendary concert. It also tells the story leading up to it, and the aftermath. Continued here.
