Fairly Thorough and Insightful

This Hendrix biography comes as a 3-Disc set, each disc covering a portion of his life (1942-1970). You can pick it up at Wal-Mart for around $19. The bio is rather insightful via family, friends, and collaborators of Jimi recounting his life. It contains some film footage of him, but most of it is photos and audio snipits. It talks about the good and the bad of his upbringing, and the development of his unique and spiritual personality. Follows his move from Seattle to London to Manhattan and back to London. Sheds light into the meaning of his lyrics, and contains a minimal amount of film and slew of pictures of his more memorable performances. Also contains information regarding the myths and mysteries surrounding his untimely death. All and all, a good film for the avid Hendrix fan, classic rock music lovers, or just to have an immense amount of Hendrix trivia in your pocket at the office water cooler/record store. (i.e. he was friends with Bruce Lee)
