Jimi Hendrix, Grateful Dead, Etc – Mojo Navigator, Vol. 2 No. 2
A rare issue of Mojo Navigator, Vol 2, No 2. Mojo Navigator was arguably the first rock fanzine; begun in 1966 by David Harris and Greg Shaw, it chronicled the San Francisco/Bay Area rock scene, and later, the rock music scene at large. Issues are extremely rare, as it was available only by subscription and at a few retail outlets. This issue features among other articles, a 3 page joint review of the debut albums from The Grateful Dead, Moby Grape, and Country Joe & The Fish (all today regarded as psychedelic rock classics.) Also there is a review of the UK issue of Jimi Hendrix's debut album "Are You Experienced" (not yet released in the US, though he'd just played the Monterey Pop Festival and Fillmore.) David Harris begins his review "Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell are without a doubt the most important musical, and in some ways, dramatic, happening in the world today." Hendrix at this time had only had 1 single ("Hey Joe") released stateside at the time of his writing, but he was absolutely correct. This article/review is filled with interesting and little known trivia, such as Hendrix, "when asked to perform certain songs from the album, admitted he had forgotten them, and them, and stated that he had made them up at the session and had never played them since !" This issue also features a very early interview with the Doors, and more. In near mint condition.
