Jimi Hendrix ‘Miami Pop Festival’ Track Listing Revealed
The latest offering from the estate of Jimi Hendrix, 'Miami Pop Festival,' is set to come out Nov. 5 on CD and a limited-edition two-LP set. Legacy Recordings have revealed its cover artwork (left) and the track listing (see below).
The CD features Hendrix's headlining set at the two-day festival, which took place at the Gulfstream Park racetrack in Hallandale, Fla., on May 18, 1968, and has never been released in any capacity. In addition to the usual Hendrix live staples like 'Hey Joe' and 'Red House,' the album includes the first recorded stage performances of 'Hear My Train A Comin'' and 'Tax Free.' There are also bonus performances of 'Fire' and "Foxey Lady' recorded at his afternoon slot.
'Miami Pop Festival' is being released to coincide with the documentary 'Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin,'' which will be shown on PBS' 'American Masters' series, also on Nov. 5, and will be available for sale on DVD/Blu-ray that same day. The documentary promises to be -- in the words of Hendrix's half-sister Janie, who runs Experience Hendrix LLC -- "an in-depth look at the life and legacy of Jimi with his own words as well as the words and memories of those that knew him well and were close to him."
The DVD will contain the entire film and a host of previously unreleased footage not featured on the telecast, including Miami Pop, the 1970 New York Pop Festival and the Love & Peace Festival at the Isle Of Fehmarn in Germany on Sept. 6, 1970, less than two weeks before Hendrix's death.
