The best documentary of JIMI!!
13 December 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

If you are a fan of Jimi... and when I say fan, i mean, you've gone beyond "Foxy Lady: - you noticed that JIMI was really into the BLUES, not just POP. Then this documentary is for YOU. Jimi was more than the hype (and there was a ton of Hype) - Jimi was a real musician - a real person. He showed up in the sixties with an awesome skill - which propelled him to the forefront. Yes, he had a defining position in the sixties - But he wanted wanted something more.

This documentary is for YOU.

This documentary has REAL FOOTAGE - unlike other documentaries that do not show real footage (because they do not have the rights) - This documentary has real footage, real songs and the real Jimi.

This documentary traces Jimi from Seattle, working for his father (for a few weeks), joining the paratroopers, working with little Richard - then making it over to England - where he got his start... Jimi was already a super star when he showed up in the U S of A - at the Monterey Festival - where he lit is guitar on fire - on Sunday June 18, 1967 - the summer of love began...
