JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE - LIVE IN MAUI 3LP/BLU-RAY

Experience Hendrix announces a brand new collection that couples the brand new feature length documentary “Music, Money, Madness . . . Jimi Hendrix In Maui” with the accompanying live performances on both audio and video. The film chronicles the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s storied visit to Maui, their performance on the dormant lower crater of Haleakala volcano on the island and how the band became ensnared with the ill-fated “Rainbow Bridge” movie produced by their controversial manager Michael Jeffery. Directed by John McDermott and produced by Janie Hendrix, George Scott and McDermott, the documentary incorporates never before released original footage and new interviews with first hand participants and key players such as Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer, Warner Bros. executives and several Rainbow Bridge cast members, as well as its director Chuck Wein.

The Blu-ray will include the full documentary as well as the 16mm colour film shot of the two afternoon performances captured on July 30, 1970 mixed in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Also included in the package will be Live In Maui – both of the aforementioned sets spread across 2 CDs, newly restored and mixed by long time Jimi Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer, and mastered by Bernie Grundman. The 2 sets finds The Experience – Hendrix, Billy Cox on bass, Mitch Mitchell on drums – at the height of its powers playing flawlessly against a stunning natural backdrop. Included are breathtaking renditions of crowd favourites like “Foxey Lady,” “Purple Haze” and Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” as well as then-unreleased songs like “Dolly Dagger” and “Freedom” that showcased the new direction Hendrix was moving toward.

Release Date: November 20th, 2020, Limited numbered editions available.
