Witness the rock legend in black-and-white, quad-tone film shots from three live shows in Photographing Jimi Hendrix, a book by Lenny Eisenberg. This 120-page volume captures the man hailed by Rolling Stone as the greatest guitarist of all time, showing him as he performs for mesmerized crowds at the Carousel in Framingham, MA on August 25, 1968, as well as the Boston Garden on November 16, 1968, and the Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969.

Viewing the photos in sequence, you can imagine that you are actually attending a Hendrix concert. Through the power of the images, you can almost hear the music. There is text at the opening of each chapter, including an introduction to the Woodstock section by Grammy award nominee Gerardo "Jerry" Velez of the Band of Gypsies, who played with Hendrix at Woodstock. Additionally, set lists for each show are provided, including such songs as "Spanish Castle Magic," "Voodoo Child," and "Foxy Lady."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great photos of Jimi Hendrix live on stage! The photographs of Jimi Hendrix in this book make one feel like they are live in person at the concert. You can hear his music through the photos. It seems like one actually visualizes more of Jimi Hendrix, the details, and what his stage performances were like without movement in video but using the still photos. Quite amazing. Glad these photos are published!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Photos! Not the same ones that have been around! Great Wow! Thanks Lennie!! What a a totally blast from the past. As a fellow shooter, it's so nice to see stuff on Hendrix on one else captured! Pushing my favorite monochrome, Kodak, Tech Pan was always interesting and you got some really gold. Just look at his expressions in these shots. This wasn't a guitar player, he wasn't chasing Pentatonic, Miloxidian or anything else. In the total moment at that snap of the shutter. Great stuff. As a guitar player, watching someone navigate the keyboard like it was a familiar road he went down day after day. Smiling through some, grimacing through other passages that stirred some other triggers, and he took his Strat and did things Leo would have never guess. I was in R&B band when Hendrix hit the scene. I enjoyed R&B but for the soloist guitar payer, it wasn't what I wanted and when my drummer took me to his house and put on Axis and stuff, my jaw dropped, (think that's were I got my bad TMJ joint problem, but well worth it). Again, thanks Lennie, for a young kid working your way into different areas was really cool. Photographers; we're hated for being in the way, for working so hard to get the shot because whether we are documentary, or still of motion picture, without you and I and the many others who risk getting physically messed up, the world would have missed all of this. Thanks again. BUY THIS BOOK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hendrix the Guitar Guru in Photos I love the book.Great work by Leonard, photos are great and with the commentary put you in the middle of the happenings at the time the photos were taken. It is absolutely wonderful addition to anyone's library especially a music lover, guitar player, someone that grove up listening to Hendrix.
