Faithful to the performance

"This Blu-ray edition of Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock is basically the same version we got on the regular DVD. The big difference here is the picture, which is really nice all things considered. After all this was almost 40 years ago, and Jimi hit the stage early monday morning after most of the audience had gone home, and the film crew were obviously at the end of their rope. There are moments of brilliance interspersed with chaos; both musically, and for the film crew. Fortunately these moments usually happen together. The audio mix on this disc sounded more faithful to the performance. I'm able to hear Larry Lee's guitar work, which was a pleasant surprise. The picture quality allowed for a few discoveries. At the end of Red House you can see Jimi had broken a guitar string. I've seen this performance many times before but had never caught that. This new line-up was a departure for Hendrix. He expanded his sound with more instruments to explore new musical landscapes. He was also under a lot of pressure from his manager not to change the successful formula of The Experience, so this was a bold move by Jimi, and when it worked it was amazing. The historic significance of this performance is obvious, and I would highly recommend this blu-ray edition of Jimi Hendrix Live at Woodstock."
100 stars for Jimi
