Oh yes, it’s a great day here at Rock My World. It has been announced that the Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church concert film where the late, great, guitar icon and his band blew the doors off their electrifying, headlining set from the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival is set to be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 30th and we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
Previously, a version of the film had aired on the Showtime Network in the US, but the new DVD and Blu-Ray versions will also include two song performances from the July 4, 1970 music festival that were not part of the broadcast: “Red House” and “Freedom”.
The release of the home video will also feature a “special added bonus music video for ‘Room Full Of Mirrors’ that combines the existing footage with never-before-seen photographs of the performance,” according to the announcement.
Other Jimi Hendrix movies include, Jimi Plays Berkeley, Monterey Pop, The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live, and of course, the iconic, Woodstock.
Check out the trailer below for Jimi Plays Berkeley right here at RMW.
