A new Jimi Hendrix lyric book, Jimi Hendrix: the Ultimate Lyric Book, a 304-page hardcover, will be published by Backbeat on November 13.
"Jimi Hendrix was such an extraordinary guitarist, it can be easy to forget that as much passion, soul, and precision went into his lyrics," the book description begins.
"Here are all the words to the Hendrix classics you've rocked along to for years . . . [The book] includes numerous examples of Jimi's handwritten lyrics, often scribbled on hotel stationery, as well as photos of Jimi to accompany every song. Much of this material has never been seen before. [It] will give you a glimpse of the lyricist behind the songs, a songwriter whose words were just as searing as his solos."
The Ultimate Lyric Book is available for pre-order ($40) at Backbeat.com.
