An in-depth documentary look at the life and legacy of Jimi Hendrix!
Miami Pop Festival is being released to coincide with the documentary "Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin," which will be shown on PBS' "American Masters" series, also on Nov. 5, and will be available for sale on DVD/Blu-ray that same day. The documentary is — in the words of Hendrix's half-sister Janie, who runs Experience Hendrix LLC — "an in-depth look at the life and legacy of Jimi with his own words as well as the words and memories of those that knew him well and were close to him."
The DVD contains the entire film and a host of previously unreleased footage not featured on the telecast, including Miami Pop, the 1970 New York Pop Festival and the Love & Peace Festival at the Isle Of Fehmarn in Germany on Sept. 6, 1970, less than two weeks before Hendrix's death. The film details the meteoric rise of the Experience, the creation of his ground-breaking music and the building of Electric Lady Studios — his recording studio in New York's Greenwich Village.
