Jimi Hendrix’s closisng performance at Woodstock on Aug. 18, 1969, is arguably one of the most iconic moments in rock history, but it has never been commercially available in its entirety. That will change on Sept. 13, when Universal Music and Experience Hendrix release the DVD “Jimi Hendrix — Live at Woodstock.” The project comes out a day earlier in the U.K.
The double-disc set captures one of Hendrix’s only performances with an extended backing band, dubbed Gypsy Sun And Rainbows. Longtime Hendrix engineer Eddie Kramer supervised a new audio mix in both 5.1 and 2.0 stereo sound.
