A new edition of Jimi Hendrix’s 1970 performances at the Berkeley Community Theatre is coming to DVD and Blu-ray. The restored and expanded concert will be released on July 10, according to Brave Words.
The documentary showcases the two performances Hendrix gave on May 30, 1970. This edition has been restored from the original 16mm negative, and includes more than 15 minutes of unseen footage. Among the new performances are “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Machine Gun” and “Hear My Train a Comin’” – none of which were included in the original film.
In addition, July 10 will see the first stand-alone release on Blu-ray of Jimi Hendrix: Voodoo Child. The documentary film directed by Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology) was previously included on DVD in the West Coast Seattle Boy box set.
