Editorial Reviews

This special DVD presentation of Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church presents the legendary guitarist in full flight at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival before the largest US audience of his career.

This critically acclaimed film combines color, 16mm multi-camera footage of Hendrix's unforgettable July 4, 1970 concert in its original performance sequence together with a new documentary that traces his journey to the festival amidst the dark shadow of civil rights unrest, the unrelenting toll of the Vietnam War and a burgeoning festival culture that drew together young people across the country who were inspired by the Woodstock festival.

The film details Hendrix's integral role in drawing nearly 500,000 people to his Electric Church- a dusty, scorching hot pecan orchard in Byron, Georgia some 100 miles south of Atlanta. Together with Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox, Jimi skillfully blended favorites such as "Purple Haze," "All Along The Watchtower," and "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" with confident renditions of new songs such as "Freedom" and "Straight Ahead" that had not yet been released on album. As a colorful fireworks display stretched overhead across the night sky, Jimi performed the "Star Spangled Banner" to the wild delight of the massive audience.

The performance footage of the Experience has been carefully restored from the original negative in high definition. The audio soundtrack includes stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes by Eddie Kramer directly from the original master tapes.

This expanded DVD features three songs not seen in the television broadcast. This includes, "Red House," "Freedom" and a special presentation of "Room Full Of Mirrors" that features all of the existing performance footage combined with never before seen photographs of the Atlanta performance.

I have had a Japanese bootleg of this show on VHS for decades, and I've been waiting in hopes that someday we would get an official release. At last we have one, and I could not be happier with the results. The picture quality blows the bootleg away. So much so, I threw the bootleg in the trash. The sound is equally fantastic and it now feels like you are on stage with Jimi, Billy, and Mitch. This was a really good performance, and it is yet one more reminder of how exceptional Jimi Hendrix was. Not just as a guitar player, but as a songwriter as well. You can see Jimi was having a good time most of the show, although as usual there are a few times you can see he was frustrated with either the sound or his equipment, but this seems to be a fairly common situation throughout his career. Jimi was a perfectionist in the studio and would typically do many takes before being satisfied. He brought that same focus on stage as well and the technology in those days rarely met his exact standards.

The only special feature is a video for the song Room Full Of Mirrors which uses all the available footage of that particular song, which apparently was very little, but they did managed to make an enjoyable video non the less. One needs to understand that the filming of this performance was set up at the last minute and film cameras could only hold so many minutes on a single reel, and although they had several cameras only so much of this show was actually captured on film. In the parts where they missed some of the performance the editors have done a good job filling the space with shots of the crowd and the two other gentleman on stage, so the film blends these moments seamlessly.

This is the definitive release of Jimi from that era. Excellent sound, excellent picture and excellent performance from Jimi Hendrix, Mitch Mitchell and Billy Cox. I've had earlier versions from the show on "Stages" and "Johnny B Goode" and this version is outstanding.

I was thrilled to receive this dvd. There were performances that I had never seen before which was amazing to me. This festival took place in Byron, Georgia about 100 miles south of Atlanta on July 4. 1970. Jimi was just amazing. The camera work and lighting were criticized. The little town did not generate enough electricity so Jimi could hardly see the audience which was important to him. I loved the people of this town. The sheriff was so intelligent in the way that he handled things which was to leave everybody alone. The jail was so cute -- 2 cells and it looked like a museum piece. I found the lack of electricity to be a plus because Jimi was lit so well. I loved the camera work -- it concentrated on his face and hands and captured such an amazing experience. I could feel Jimi's energy and the intensity of his work. There are no gimicks to Jimi. It is all heart and soul and who could not appreciate that. He gave it everything that he had. His performance of Red House was amazing, as was "Hey Joe," (the song that got me interested in Jimi) "I live today," "Vodochile," was amazing and I want to add that "All Along the Watchtower," was like riding on a speeding train. Every song that he performed was so intense and beautiful. How sad to know that he had only about two months left to live. I have to mention that Jimi's philosophy was "peace, love and happiness." I have never heard of any violence associated with one of Jimi's festivals. He was an Angel and always will be.

Electric Church music by James Marshall Hendrix: The performance is good for Jimi, not great like his July 30, 1970 Hawaii concert or his Jan 1, 1970 Band of Gypsys concert but not bad either. He gives a set list of old classics like Foxy Lady, Purple Haze, Hey Joe and Fire and also incorporates "All along the watchtower" that was new to his shows in 1970, Jimi also welcomes new at the time, unreleased songs like Freedom, Room full of Mirrors, Straight Ahead and Hear my train a comin (though he had performed that song for many years at the time but never officially released). Where the Showtime feature and the DVD have their differences ONLY lies in the addition of 3 more songs to the video. Red House, a great blues standard by Jimi should have been in the Showtime feature, to have no blues on the set for Showtime was a disgrace as Jimi is not only one the best guitar players of all time he is also one of the best BLUES players of all time! This track was previously released on the short lived 1990 Japan only VHS version of the same show. This myth that this concert has never been released before and its all brand new is just a marketing ploy by Janie Hendrix and its so dishonest it makes me sick! There were 3 songs released in 1986 on the American VHS called "johnny B. Goode" so to suggest this is all "NEW" is just so bogus! Anyhow....the DVD also features 2 NEW video numbers never released before, that being "Freedom" and Room fill of mirrors". Room full of mirrors is only partial video, the rest of the song uses "filler" images from the show. The audio is a excellent 5.1 mix done by the master himself, Mr Eddie Kramer! All his DVD mixes by Jimi are superb!Read more ›
