BEAT mm - Jørgen Angels Fotografier 1966-1983

BEAT mm - Jørgen Angels Fotografier 1966-1983
Although I am a huge Jørgen Angel fan, I was completely apprehensive about reading this book for the first time. For starters, I am an English-speaking American. The accompanying text is in Dutch. Oh boy.

I can say, after finishing the book, that the language barrier did not detract me from thoroughly enjoying this book at all. It contained a lot of anecdotes of Mr. Angel meeting all of the musicians, plus some biographical info. I was able to guess at what was being said, however, to be honest I was more interested in the 500 photographs in this 272-page book.

In addition to the more well-known artists such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Jethro Tull, Queen, and David Bowie (to name a select few), there are more regional acts included in this book, such as Deltagården, Røde Mor, C.V. Jørdensen and Sanne Salomonsen.

What I thought that added to the overall greatness of the book was the sporadic themed collections of photographs, such as HAIR, CROWD, GUITAR HERO, ROCK SINGER and OG DER ER MEGET MERE (AND THERE IS MUCH MORE).

The photographs included in this book contain 1/10 of 1 percent of the total amount of photographs in Jørgen Angel's collection. This book is really a massively large collection of photographs that stand up well against any other book of photographs I've seen.
