Ode to a Highflying Bird. Charlie WATTS.

Ode to a Highflying Bird

London; Beat Publications. 1964. FIRST EDITION. Original white paper-covered boards, printed in black. 12mo. With colour illustrations. Shows some handling, and a little edgewear, some wear to spine tips. Very good. A decent copy of a particularly elusive book. (not to be confused with the 1991 facsmile which was issued in a CD boxset, identical to this first edition but for the imprint amended from 'Beat' to 'UFO'). Rolling Stones' drummer and Jazz afficianado Charlie Watts' charming tribute to his hero, saxophonist Charlie 'Yardbird' Parker, which takes the form of an illustrated poem. Item #34418
