Storyline

With the blessings of Jimi's biological family and many of his closest friends, Passport brings the life of Jimi Hendrix to light as never before. From his upbringing in Seattle to his final days in London, JIMI HENDRIX: THE UNCUT STORY goes beyond all previously released documentaries to explore the complete life-story behind the legendary artist. Episode 1: 1942-1961 The first part of this three-episode series takes us through Jimi's life in Seattle, Washington where he spent two-thirds of his twenty-seven years. Through the recollection of his closest friends and family, we enter into the inner world of Jimi's childhood upbringing. This is where we come to know the people and events that would shape his love for music and define the extraordinary man he would become. Episode 2: 1961 - 1967 After Jimi's stint in the army, we join him as a sideman on the Chitlin' Circuit playing behind some of the greatest names in R&B.

Fairly Thorough and Insightful
22 May 2006 | by (Seattle) – See all my reviews

This Hendrix biography comes as a 3-Disc set, each disc covering a portion of his life (1942-1970). You can pick it up at Wal-Mart for around $19. The bio is rather insightful via family, friends, and collaborators of Jimi recounting his life. It contains some film footage of him, but most of it is photos and audio snipits. It talks about the good and the bad of his upbringing, and the development of his unique and spiritual personality. Follows his move from Seattle to London to Manhattan and back to London. Sheds light into the meaning of his lyrics, and contains a minimal amount of film and slew of pictures of his more memorable performances. Also contains information regarding the myths and mysteries surrounding his untimely death. All and all, a good film for the avid Hendrix fan, classic rock music lovers, or just to have an immense amount of Hendrix trivia in your pocket at the office water cooler/record store. (i.e. he was friends with Bruce Lee)
