Classic Jimi Hendrix Movie To Be Reissued
Another film from the vaults to be re-released next month
Jimi Plays Berkeley is released in July on DVD and Blu Ray and it was recorded at the Berkeley Community Theatre on Saturday, 30 May 1970.
Made from a new, digitally-restored transfer from the original 16mm negative, Jimi Plays Berkeley features more than 15 minutes of previously unseen documentary and performance footage of Hendrix classics including 'Voodoo Child (Slight Return)', 'Machine Gun' and 'Hear My Train A Comin'' not featured in the original film release.
"We take great pride in doing our part to preserve the music of my brother, Jimi, especially during his 70th birthday year," said Janie Hendrix, President and CEO of Experience Hendrix and co-producer (with John McDermott) of the Jimi Plays Berkeley DVD.
Jimi Plays Berkeley features a 5.1 surround stereo soundtrack mixed by original Jimi Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer and commentary from Abe Jacob, the audio engineer who recorded the Hendrix Berkeley concerts in 1970.
