Hendrix, Jimi - Live In Maui 2 x CDs + Blu-ray

SKU 28-SNYL979904.2
This is – finally, 50 years later – the entire soundtrack of the two shows that Jimi Hendrix recorded in Maui on July 30, 1970. These shows have been oft-bootlegged and you can see a bit of the footage in the absolutely hideous timepiece film “Rainbow Bridge”, but here both excellent shows are, newly mixed from the masters and a blu-ray of both shows! This is one of the late period great shows and is very worthwhile.

“Experience Hendrix announces a collection that couples the brand new feature length documentary Music, Money, Madness... Jimi Hendrix In Maui with the accompanying live performances on both audio and video. The film chronicles the Jimi Hendrix Experience's storied visit to Maui, their performance on the dormant lower crater of Haleakala volcano on the island and how the band became ensnared with the ill-fated Rainbow Bridge movie produced by their controversial manager Michael Jeffery.
Directed by John McDermott and produced by Janie Hendrix, George Scott and McDermott, the documentary incorporates never before released original footage and new interviews with firsthand participants and key players such as Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer, Warner Bros. Executives and several Rainbow Bridge cast members, as well as it's director Chuck Wein.
The Blu-ray will include the full documentary as well as the 16mm color film shot of the two afternoon performances captured on July 30, 1970 mixed in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound.
Also included in the package is Live In Maui - both of the aforementioned sets spread across 2 CDs, newly restored and mixed by longtime Jimi Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer, and mastered by Bernie Grundman. Included are breathtaking renditions of crowd favorites like Foxey Lady, " Purple Haze and Voodoo Child (Slight Return), as well as then-unreleased songs like Dolly Dagger and Freedom that showcased the new direction Hendrix was moving toward.”
