Synopsis by Karen Solomon
This 1967 theatrical release comes to video via Warner Home Video. Live concert footage, rare studio glimpses, and interviews round out the contents of this collection. "Wild Thing," "Purple Haze," and "Hear My Train a Comin'" (acoustic version) were all recorded live on stage with the quality of sound and video that suggest they could be bootleg material. A break from live footage appears in "Foxy Lady," one of Hendrix's best-known hits, which is filmed more like a music video -- on location and in 8 mm. The program includes brief one-on-one interviews with Jimi Hendrix, Noel Redding, and Mitch Mitchell. Some of the material, such as "Hear My Train a Comin'," has appeared on other video releases.
