JIMI HENDRIX: Electric Church Documentary Heading To The Big Screen; Details Revealed

According to Billboard, after a run on Showtime last year and release on CD and DVD, the documentary Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church - about his legendary July 4, 1970 performance at the second Atlanta International Pop Festival - is headed to the big screen.

The film's theatrical run begins on January 31st, including a special screening at the ArcLight Hollywood theater that will include a discussion by director John McDermott of Experience Hendrix, record producer and engineer Eddie Kramer, Janie Hendrix (Experience Hendrix CEO) and Steve Rash, the original producer/director of Atlanta Pop.

Other openings will take place into early April, and the February 25th screening in Nashville will feature a Q&A with longtime Hendrix bassist, Billy Cox.

A new video detailing Live At The Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, included in the Deluxe Edition box set of Electric Ladyland, the final studio album from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, can be seen below:

The title is available as either a 3CD/1 Blu-ray set or a 6LP/1 Blu-ray set. Both packages include the original double album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes. For the LP set, Grundman prepared an all analog direct to disc vinyl transfer of the album, preserving the authenticity. Also included is Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career, plus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer. This marks the first and only time this has been done with a Hendrix studio album, and gives listeners the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.

Spread across 3 CDs and 1 Blu-ray the set includes:

- CD1: the original album, now newly remastered by Bernie Grundman from the original analog tapes.

- CD2: Electric Ladyland: The Early Takes, which presents 20 never before heard demos and studio outtakes from this period in Hendrix’s career.

- CD3: Jimi Hendrix Experience: Live At The Hollywood Bowl 9/14/68, part of Experience Hendrix’s Dagger Records official bootleg series. The never before released recording captures the band and the mounting excitement that took place just weeks before the release of Electric Ladyland.

- Blu-Ray: includes the acclaimed full-length documentary At Last… The Beginning: The Making of Electric Ladylandplus a new 5.1 surround sound mix of the entire original album by Hendrix’s original engineer Eddie Kramer plus the original stereo mixes in uncompressed 24 bit/96 kz high resolution audio.

- Electric Ladyland Deluxe Edition includes a full color, 48-page book containing Jimi’s handwritten lyrics, poem and instructions to his record label, as well as never before published photos from the recording sessions that were shot by Eddie Kramer himself. 

All contained in a luxe casemade book with new cover art which is true to Hendrix’s original vision of the album’s cover: a Linda (McCartney) Eastman photograph of the band and children at the statue of Alice In Wonderland in New York’s Central Park.
