Hardcore Jimi Hendrix freaks with a hankering for some previously unreleased music by the master have something to look forward to.
On November 20, Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Sony Music’s Legacy Recordings will release a brand new feature-length documentary titled Music, Money, Madness…Jimi Hendrix in Maui, along with the previously unheard album Live in Maui. The film will be available on Blu-ray and the music on two CDs or three vinyl LPs.
I’d shoot for the vinyl if I were you.
According to a press release from Victoria Lord Public Relations, “the film chronicles the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s storied visit to Maui and how they became ensnared with the ill-fated Rainbow Bridge movie produced by their controversial manager Michael Jeffery.
“The Blu-ray will include the full documentary as well as bonus features featuring all of the existing 16mm color film shot of the two performances that afternoon mixed in both stereo and 5.1 surround sound. Included in the package will be Live In Maui–both of the aforementioned sets spread across 2 CDs or 3 vinyl LPs, newly restored and mixed by longtime Jimi Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer…”
