Jimi Hendrix (1973)
This documentary was made three years after Jimi Hendrix's untimely death. At the time it was an example of how a visual biography should be done, but some of the information in it needs revising in the light of new information uncovered over the years. The film contains concert footage spanning the Marquee in 1967 to his last UK performance at the third Isle of Wight festival in 1970; along the way we see classic performances at Monterey (1967), Woodstock (1969), Fillmore East (1969/70), and Berkeley (1970). A double album was released to tie-in with the film, containing the complete performances in the film, along with interviews with people in the film (not necessarily the same interviews). The film is worth seeing for Jimi's performances, and to hear what his contemporaries have to say about him (Eric Clapton, Mitch Mitchell, Lou Reed, Mick Jagger, Pete Townsend, and others).
Nearly three decades after his untimely death in September 1970, Jimi Hendrix's legendary performances with
the Band Of Gypsys remain one of his most impressive achievements.
The revolutionary impact Jimi Hendrix, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles had upon the boundaries and definitions of
rock, R&B and funk can be traced to four concerts over the course of two evenings. The story of this
groundbreaking music is told here in interviews with Jimi, and for the first time, all four of his
bandmates, Mitch Mitchell, Noel Redding, Billy Cox and Buddy Miles. Among those also contributing are
Lenny Kravitz, Vernon Reid, Slash and original engineer Eddie Kramer.
Jimi Hendrix: Live At The Filmore East features the only known color and black and white rare footage of
the group in concert, including "Machine Gun", "Who Knows", "Izabella", "Fire", "Foxey Lady" and a musical
soundtrack which exclusively includes additional performances from the guitarist's December 31, 1969 and
January 1, 1970 concerts which have not been included as part of Band Of Gypsys or Jimi Hendrix. Live At
