Amazing Jimi 1970
17 April 2001 | by heflin88See all my reviews

Despite its shortcomings this is my favorite official Jimi film.I first saw it at the local midnight flicks when I was in my early teens.I never missed it again.Even then (late 70s)I really wanted one of the "new " VCRs just to play this movie.The performances are outstanding.In my opinion Mr. Hendrix was at the top of his game in 1970 and this shows edited performances from two shows he did on the same night.Backstage scenes of a rehearsal and the limo ride to the show are very interesting.Songs such as Lover Man and Hey Baby are spotlighted along with better known songs (in 1970 anyway)including Purple Haze,Star Spangled Banner,Voodoo Child,and a great version of the recently (in 1970) released Machine Gun,ruined in my opinion by the intercut shots of the Berkeley riots.Maybe this was needed in 1970.The modern era of everybody seeing everything was still very far away.Anyway,too many edits,too much intercut footage and too short.Still THE classic documentary of Jimi in 1970.Nothing against any other official show.I love them all.This one though ,is special.
