Of all the Jimi videos out there this is certainly among the best. All too often, the producers of Jimi videos seem to 'psychedelisize' Jimi's performances, adding layer upon layer of weird camera work, strange colors, lights, etc., (try Jimi Plays Berkeley, for example). While the documentation of the music is there, they completely miss the performance itself, and manage to lessen the impact of a live Jimi Hendrix concert that only watching him play can provide. Jimi was magic. This video does an excellent job capturing that magic. It was filmed in black and white, and the production quality is not exactly stellar, but you get to both hear and see a true master at the height of his short career.
