    Billed as "one of the greatest and most anticipated, unseen treasures in musical history," the feature-length film, The Jimi Hendrix Experience: The Royal Albert Hall is scheduled to be screened to the public for the first time since it was shot 50 years ago.

    The movie, which documents the last European performance of the original Experience lineup, will be shown at the London venue where it was primarily filmed on February 24, 1969



    The film has never before been released on any format nor commercially screened anywhere in the world, and the authorized version to be shown at the Royal Albert Hall has been restored with remastered sound and color-corrected picture. The film’s soundtrack was mixed by longtime Hendrix recording engineer Eddie Kramer.

    The screening is being touted as a one-night-only experience, with no plans for a further official release.

    Of course there is a version here:

    So if I want to see this movie, I've got to fly to London? Otherwise, I'm out of luck?

    Now I'm weirded out ... Last night, for the first time in years I listened to a CD of this performance.
    Sound was atrocious but vibe was off the scale :cool:

    If there is footage of the Stone Free performance at these AH gigs in '69, that's a new thing. If not, I've watched this countless times. Very good music. The soundchecks are good too, they're floating in the web. Hendrix got a very good guitar tone at this venue.

    Jimi looked angry. Kept shooting daggers in Noel's direction. And in 'I Don't Live Today' he changed the line 'Won't you hurry up and rescue me' to 'Won't you hurry up and electrocute me' while looking in Noel's direction.
