We are very pleased to announce that our latest book Jimi Hendrix – The Day I Was There is now available to pre order on Amazon.
Richard Houghton's fifth book is a collection of over 500 eyewitness accounts of seeing him live. It's the story of Jimi's discovery by manager Chas Chandler in New York's Cafe Wha? and explosion onto the UK music scene in 1966 through to his untimely death in September 1970. With fans recalling memories of the earliest Experience shows at UK clubs and theatre shows and Jimi's appearances at the Monterey, Woodstock, Atlanta and Isle of Wight festivals, you'll see a portrait of Hendrix the live performer that's never been painted before – up close and loud. With personal photographs, memorabilia, fascinating anecdotes, and fan stories that have never been published before. Music by Anto Dreenan.
