Reviews

Jimi Hendrix's last UK performance was a memorable one, taking place at England's answer to Woodstock: the Isle of Wight rock festival. This video features the entire set, which includes incendiary versions of 'All Along the Watchtower', 'Voodoo Chile' and 'Message To Love'.

God, I'm sick of people slagging this performance off. The older material is performed in a lacklustre manner true, also the technical problems didn't help although I feel that Jimi's struggling with the equipment produced a far more emotive set than for example, the Berkeley concert.
The IOW set has much more passion and feeling than many of his '70's gigs especially the newer material such as Dolly Dagger, Ezy Rider, In from the Storm etc, and the version of Machine Gun is right out there in the stratosphere. If you want to here a bad Jimi performance then track down a bootleg copy of his Arhus gig 02/09/70 - now that is a bad gig!!!
The IOW gig shows a more passionate and humane version of the performer, even if he wasn't in the best of shape.
The 5.1 mix is excellent too
My main gripe with this DVD is that it's not the full set but hey, there's still enough.
Maybe not ideal as an intro to the man, but an absolute classic performance (even tho lots of people including Mr Chandler, stated it was dreadful) in that the struggle with the equipment brings out more passion and feel to the songs in my opinion.

people in general have always said it wasnt the best documented
gig he has done. i bought the vhs reissue back in 1990. This new version gives it total justice,what you get is a full concert from backstage before, through to the end,murray learner had full access to the stage and the filming is pure class for the period
ok, for the first half of the gig jimi struggles to get into it, but his playing is pure virtuoso.. top stuff. and the film restoration is superb, complete with a build up documentary before. Interviews with mitch,billy cox and his road manager.
I recomend this purely as a musician and a fan if you are either get it...

Format: DVD
The Jimi Hendrix - Blue Wild Angel Live at the Isle of Wight Festival DVD is a pretty essential purchase for Hendrix fans, the boxset contains the concert on two cds, a DVD film with extras and a great booklet with detailed linear notes.
The CD version of the concert boasts three extra songs: 'Hey Joe,' 'Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)' and the excellent rare blues number 'Midnight Lightning.'
The main reason to buy the set however, is for the almost 2 hour DVD, which begins as the band wait to take the stage and features the tracks:
"God Save the Queen," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Spanish Castle Magic," "All Along the Watchtower," "Machine Gun," "Lover Man," "Freedom," "Red House," "Dolly Dagger," "Foxey Lady," "Message to Love," "Ezy Ryder," "Purple Haze," "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and finally "In From the Storm."
The sound and visuals are pretty great, and look a little better than the other Hendrix DVDs and have a more balanced set of shots of the whole band and the individual members. There has been a lot of talk about the two occasions on which security walkie-talkie signals can be heard over the main speakers but it is so for so short a period of time and is inconsequential that potential buyer needn't worry about it.
The performance begins excellently and the band are on top form, nailing every second up until the very end of 'All Along the Watchtower,' when Mitch keeps a beat going instead of playing the floor toms, which seems to cause Jimi to lose confidence.
The 20 minute version of 'Machine Gun,' is mostly excellent and features a drum solo from Mitch, some lengthy improved sections and would be pretty flawless if it didn't end to abruptly and had the transition from Drum Solo back into the song been smoother.

Format: DVD
I do not have a clue what everyone is talking about. This is by far the best hendrix performance available to purchase on DVD. There are some truly fantastic moments that should go down in history. The solo to "ezy rider" brought a tear to my eye and it is worth just buying this DVD to see Jimi finally open his eyes fully in the middle of "All along the watchtower." Jimi's great sense of humour is brought to life in this concert and his offhand remarks regarding the sheer amount of wars going on bring this piece of footage into the context of the late '60s/early 70s.
Granted, jimi suffers from some technical problems involving his guitar (it appears to be the pick-ups)but the fact that jimi is still playing when he trails around backstage establishes him once again as the pure genius he is.
The features are commendable with merchandise from the concert open for viewing among others. This is a must buy for any Hendrix fan, period.

...which is the reason for the 5 star rating.
This is a perfect (and rare)example of a musician struggling through a bad performance.
Hendrix is visibly unhappy with the stage sound,his own amplifier sound,his singing and the playing of Mitchell and Cox.
No-one should read too much into the fact that this was Jimis last UK gig.I'm sure the band turned out many superb performances around this time,but this isn't one of them.
It is also a glaring testament to the fact that concert technology had in no way caught up with the advanced ideas in Hendrixs head.
By all means buy it for the odd moment when the band manages to pull itself out of the sludge,but don't buy it as an introduction to the masters work,you'll wonder what all the fuss was about.
