Hendrix Live Set Due Out August 28th, ‘Electric Church’ Doc Airing On Showtime September 4th

Two big Jimi Hendrix titles are set for premiere/release in the very near future.

Due out August 28th, Freedom:  Jimi Hendrix Experience Atlanta Pop Festival will be available as a 2CD and a 2LP set, with the first 5,000 copies of the vinyl release individually numbered.  Hendrix’s performance at the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival, which took place July 3-5, 1970, often gets overlooked in favor of his iconic moments from Woodstock and The Monterey Pop Festival, despite the fact that this was the largest American crowd of which Hendrix performed. This release will definitely shine a light on one truly incredible live moment in rock history…

…and if that doesn’t, then surly the documentary will!

Set for a September 4th premiere on Showtime, on demand and online, Jimi Hendrix:  Electric Church will chronicle the Atlanta International Pop Festival performance and feature interviews with Paul McCartney, Billy Cox, Mitch Mitchell, Steve Winwood, Rich Robinson, Kirk Hammett, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.

Jimi Hendrix:  Electric Church will receive a DVD and Blu-ray release on October 30th.
