Especially the DVD/BR looks very promising. Especially considering the very cool bonus material.



"Audio CD (November 5, 2013)
Number of Discs: 1
Label: Sony Legacy

Never previously available in any form, Miami Pop Festival, introduces the first recorded stage performances of "Hear My Train A Comin'" and "Tax Free" while showcasing definitive live takes on such classics as "Fire," "Hey Joe," "I Don't Live Today" and "Purple Haze." The package includes never before published photos taken at the festival and an essay by award-winning music journalist and Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. This album includes the show as originally recorded on site by Hendrix's long term sound engineer, Eddie Kramer.

The latest offering from the estate of Jimi Hendrix, ‘Miami Pop Festival,’ is set to come out Nov. 5 on CD and a limited-edition two-LP set. Legacy Recordings have revealed its cover artwork (left) and the track listing (see below).

The CD features Hendrix’s headlining set at the two-day festival, which took place at the Gulfstream Park racetrack in Hallandale, Fla., on May 18, 1968, and has never been released in any capacity. In addition to the usual Hendrix live staples like ‘Hey Joe’ and ‘Red House,’ the album includes the first recorded stage performances of ‘Hear My Train A Comin” and ‘Tax Free.’ There are also bonus performances of ‘Fire’ and “Foxey Lady’ recorded at his afternoon slot.

‘Miami Pop Festival’ is being released to coincide with the documentary ‘Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin,” which will be shown on PBS’ ‘American Masters’ series, also on Nov. 5, and will be available for sale on DVD/Blu-ray that same day. The documentary promises to be — in the words of Hendrix’s half-sister Janie, who runs Experience Hendrix LLC — “an in-depth look at the life and legacy of Jimi with his own words as well as the words and memories of those that knew him well and were close to him.”

The DVD will contain the entire film and a host of previously unreleased footage not featured on the telecast, including Miami Pop, the 1970 New York Pop Festival and the Love & Peace Festival at the Isle Of Fehmarn in Germany on Sept. 6, 1970, less than two weeks before Hendrix’s death.

This special Blu-Ray presentation of Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin' presents the definitive documentary about the extraordinary life of the greatest guitarist of all time, now in high definition video.

As seen on American Masters (PBS), this critically acclaimed film, directed by Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology; Festival Express), unveils previously unseen performance footage and home movies while sourcing an extensive archive of photographs, drawings, family letters and more to provide new insight into the musician's personality and genius with interviews with Hendrix himself, commentary from well-known friends and musicians including Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer, Steve Winwood, as well as revealing glimpses into Jimi from those closest to him. The film details the meteoric rise of the Experience, the creation of his groundbreaking music, the building of Electric Lady Studios, his state of the art recording facility in Greenwich Village and concludes with poignant footage from his final performance in Germany in September 1970, just 12 days before his death at age 27.

A pioneering electric guitarist, Hendrix had only four years of mainstream exposure and recognition, but his influential music and riveting stage presence left an enduring legacy.
