This cogent, highly entertaining biography vibrates with the life of a man some consider the greatest guitarist of all time, Jimi Hendrix. PURPLE HAZE unfolds through interviews with family, friends, musical colleagues, the press, and Hendrix himself. Hendrix's climb from poverty to legend has one constant--the artist's utter devotion to his craft. Enjoy this audio portrait painted with wall-to-wall voices, sound bites, pathos, humor, and tantalizing hints of guitar work. It's especially worthwhile listening for those interested in the inside story of Hendrix's creative process. But there's something here for everyone. Lovingly assembled and delivered with intelligence and compassion, Purple Haze is a great addition to the rock lover's audio library. D.J.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 06]
