Jimi Hendrix Electric Church
Summary: Unquestionably one of the most exciting rock musicians of his generation, Jimi Hendrix captivated the world with his highly stylized approach to blues guitar. Electric Churchfeatures an interview with Paul McCartney who freely admits to worshipping Hendrix, commenting, “We all played guitar. We all knew a bit. But he seemed to know more than us.” The film features interviews with Hendrix’s Experience band mates Billy Cox and the late Mitch Mitchell as well as Steve Winwood, Rich Robinson, Kirk Hammett, Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi, festival organizer Alex Cooley and many others. The film contains breathtaking, color 16mm footage of Jimi Hendrix’s July 4, 1970 appearance, a mere ten weeks before his untimely passing. Atlanta International Pop Festival footage in Electric Church was shot by Steve Rash, later known for directing the Hollywood films The Buddy Holly Story and Can’t Buy Me Love. Standout performances from the film include the Hendrix classics “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Purple Haze,” as well as confident, compelling versions of “Straight Ahead,” “Freedom” and “Room Full Of Mirrors.” Hendrix aficianados and fans of rock’s classic ‘60s – ‘70s era will not want to miss this Electric Church.
