Hendrix Film

(Noble PR) If any artist deserved a hagiography it is Jimi Hendrix, and Joe Boyd's 1973 authorized tribute adequately sanctifies the legend. Released as a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD by Warner Home Video (WHV) on 30th January 2006, A Film About Jimi Hendrix, was originally released three years after the musician's untimely death, and set the standard as to how a visual biography should be done.

The pioneering rockumentary brings together the best live footage spanning Hendrix's entire career from his beginnings to the iconic Monterey (1967) and Isle of Wight (1970) performances, all digitally transferred and restored. Included in the film are the classics "Hey Joe," "Rock Me Baby," "Like A Rolling Stone," and "A Star Spangled Banner".

Featuring the guitar wizard on stage and behind the scenes, classic concert footage is interspersed with interviews with friends and prominent musicians giving first-hand recollections, including Pete Townshend, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Little Richard, Lou Reed, and more covering the many facets of the Hendrix story, capturing the sound, look and spirit of the early 1970s.

The long-awaited Two-Disc Special Edition of the 1973 documentary is loaded with extras and completely re-mastered to provide exceptional sound and picture quality.
