ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS A Biography of Jimi Hendrix

by | Read by Lloyd James

Biography & Memoir • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2005

Seattle rock historian Charles Cross takes a deep and sensitive look at the complex life of the short-lived father of acid rock. Beginning with Hendrix's family roots in Arkansas, Virginia, and British Columbia, actor Lloyd James narrates this chronicle of the guitarist’s troubled childhood in Seattle, his apprenticeship along the "Chitlin' circuit" and in the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village, his stellar rise as a phenomenon in England, and his drug-and-alcohol-fueled descent to death. James’s intensity and emotion make his reading compelling despite his overtly "white bread" voice. Surprisingly absent from this recording are musical sound bites to illustrate Hendrix's musical style. Nevertheless, ROOM FULL OF MIRRORS is a beautiful and unforgettable audio biography.
