Said about the first edition...
"As a reference source for the impossibly complicated Hendrix legacy, this is absolutely invaluable, and full of the kind of tit-bits that will have obsessives rushing for their headphones...It's a magnificent piece of research work which all collectors will want"
...and about the second edition...
"...300 A4 pages containing an alphabetical listing of every song he ever recorded or performed, together with details of each different version that's known to exist, and then a complete listing of bootlegs. But the infor has been fully updated and revised for this edition, and there are more appendices - notably a guide to Hendrix's visual material, from 1965 to 1970, and a tour through the mysteries of the Band of Gypsys rehearsals from late 1969.It's esoteric stuff but then Hendrix's catalogue deserves such close attention. Whether you're collecting legitimate releases, bootlegs or tapes, you'll need this expert advice and analysis.'
"There have been many discographies compiled over the years but this is the most comprehensive ever assembled, and remains the only one to include details of the many recordings only available on tape."

...and about the new third edition...
"This comprehensive 350-page guide is ultimately all that devout Hendrix fans will ever need. Alphabetically compiling all of his works, including the rarest tracks and bootlegs, this is the third edition of the Benjamin Franklin Studios collection. Work began on the book back in September 1993, when it was serialised in Jimpress magazine. Following this, the first and second editions were released in 1996 and 1998, though an astonishing number of new Hendrix materials have surfaced in recent years, leaving compilers Geldeart and Rodham with the challenge of fitting this mountain of information into just one book. So what did they do? They divided this monster edition into three volumes. With a legacy of work as complex and vast as Hendrix’s you need to be extensive, and this really is, to say the least. An impressive piece of research alone, for the obsessive Hendrix collector this really is a must have."
