You see, Jimi hit the scene at a time when amplification and PA systems were in their infancy in getting LOUD. Rock was getting louder, but sound engineers and the artistes themselves were fraught with worry and concern about the problems they were experiencing with the feedback side of playing at a louder volume. But, along came Jimi, who embraced both the volume, by playing with everything turned up full, and also the accompanying feedback, by turning it around and using it to his advantage, rather than hating it as the annoying and fearful enemy it had become. Whereas everyone else had been scared of playing that loud because of the feedback problems it incurred, Jimi simply used it as a part of his playing and his stage act. This is why he set the world on fire, because no one had ever done that before, and I believe, they never will; at least, not with HIS virtuosity, because no one else can ever BE Jimi Hendrix and be blessed with his mind or his playing skills.
With this release we also have the extras, as detailed on this page, with the black and white footage from a gig in Chelmsford being a little ropey in sound quality, (they hadn't learned how to cope with his volume at the time!), but is historic nevertheless, and well worth having. An excellent package with interviews sketching in the story behind Jimi's rise to fame and the story behind how the Monterey Festival happened; knockout!
and I'll make this one short.
What a natural performer and genius he was.
The way he handled his guitar, as if it was
part of his body, was out of this world.
Watch the audience at the Monterey concert.
Watch their facial expressions change from the
beginning through to the end.
Especially at the end, when he gave his guitar
a wicked treatment.
Nice bonus material on this DVD too.
For the ones who'd like to see more background
infos, interviews, etc., I can recommend
"Jimi Hendrix - A Film About Jimi Hendrix"
Both these DVDs are excelent value for money.
