Friday (8/28) Experience Hendrix LLC and Legacy recordings will release six never previously available Jimi Hendrix performances from the July, 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival. The concert actually took place nearly 100 miles south of Atlanta in a field near Byron, Georgia and featured a lineup that included Hendrix, Bob Seger, the Allman Brothers Band, BB King and more than two dozen other acts. The collection contains 16 tracks from Hendrix recorded on Huly 4th, including ones previously available and showcased in the Showtime Special Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church, a documentary about the festival and the set the Experience did during it that the channel will debut September 4 at 9pm (Eastern).
An upcoming relase of material a young Jime Hendrix played on during a brief stint with Curtis Knight and the Squires before launching his solo career is due out soon (story). Here's a preview from it of Station Break, an instrumental from the album titled You Can't Use My Name.
Jimi Hendrix was as imaginative and creative in thought as he was as a guitarist, something that comes through in an interview he did with Keith Altham in September of 1970, just a few days before he and his guitar went silent.
