Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The honor of closing the greatest rock festival ever conceived had been bestowed to Jimi Hendrix. The renowned guitarist had earned that right on the strength of three groundbreaking albums and scores of memorable performances throughout the world. Inclement weather and seemingly endless delays forced Hendrix to wait until Monday morning before he took the stage and delivered one of his most celebrated performances. Jimi Hendrix: Live At Woodstock features highlights from Jimi's legendary festival appearance. Exciting performances of "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)," "Fire," and "Purple Haze" are capped by the guitarist's unforgettable rendition of "Star Spangled Banner."

Includes:
Message To Love
Fire
Izabella
Red House
Jam Back At The House
Voodoo Child (Slight Return)
Star Spangled Banner
Purple Haze
Woodstock Improvisation
Villanova Junction
Hear My Train A Comin'

Hendrix at Woodstock - a legendary concert. Does that mean it's worth watching? Well, it's shot outside in daylight, so visuals are better, and the footage is from one show, so continuity is better than other Hendrix compilations. There are ample crowd shots, which are interesting, and there are not the impossible closeups that mar other Hendrix films (Monterey Pop). Those are the film's good points. The downer is that Hendrix doesn't seem inspired. At times he appears annoyed with his bandmates, and he was debuting a new band at Woodstock, who's members muddied the usually clean power trio Hendrix sound. Voodoo Chile loses its power here due to the "fuzz" (see Jimi Plays Berkley for the best video capture of this song) and other than his masterpiece, Star Spangled Banner, most of these songs can be found played live far better. Woodstock was made famous by the film of the same name, and the best of the Hendrix footage from Woodstock was in that film. This tape, Hendrix at Woodstock, is interesting, nothing more.

In my review, I mistakenly said that the video contained the entire performance of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock. In reality, there is 57 minutes of his performance. The 57 minutes is extraordinary as I have said, but I believe that there is about one hour more of material that exists that is not presented. Perhaps it will be released at a future date, but what is on the tape is absolutely priceless, and of course I still recommend it for anyone who loves Hendrix, rock and roll, and incredible musical talent.

It's great to see more of Jimi's performance at Woodstock. Unfortuately, you are unable to hear the rest of the Gypsies, Suns and Rainbows (2nd guitar and percussion but I think that's due to the bad mixing of the original soundtrack and lack of microphone placement on the congas. You also see Jimi's frustration on his face trying to make the band tighter. It's still one of his best guitar performances of all time.

July 11, 1999: At last, we can see the mezzmerising performance of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock in 1969, without interruption, in its entirety, and in full glory since it is uncut. His "Woodstock Improv", Villanova Junction" which until now was only available on audio, can be seen and we get the full impact of how much Hendrix dominated the entire rock and roll world in his time. The video is long overdue. Too many of his documentaries are spoiled with interruptions by people being interviewed and saying how great he was.. we all know how great he was, now we can watch his entire spectacular performance with no interruptions. The sound quality and image quality are superb thanks to the efforts and generosity of the Hendrix family who have made this and all of their other releases a labor of love. Anyone who loves Hendrix or the electric guitar should have this video.
Sept 3,2002: Just to set the record straight, this DVD apparently doesn't contain the entire Hendrix performance. It does, however contain all of the songs (in their entirety, unabridged), that over the years we got in bits and pieces through albums, movies and so forth. I guess I would have to say it is the most complete version of his performance at Woodstock yet produced - I have never seen or heard all of these songs together in any other album or movie. So, I was in error in proclaiming it was his entire performance. Sorry for any confusion, in my enthusiasm for this treasure.

I don't have a clue how Jimi could posobly play the guitar like that. I didn't even think someone could move their fingers that fast. I was in a traze watching his fingers move. You do not know the true meaning of the Star Spanngled Banner until you watch this movie. Each one of these songs are completly different and better versions that the stuff he does in the recording studio. If you enjoy this CD you will like the movie even more. This is great for not only true Hendrix fans but for everyone. You must have it.

Jimi is great, and this is the best performance I have ever seen. I was at woodstock, he was great, but the video captures him at his best. Any rock fan, young or old, will enjoy this video. Jimi shows in this video how his magic fingers do the walking. God of the guitar, this one is a must see.
