The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival

Album Review

Troubled Hendrix scorches his biggest ever US crowd on new film soundtrack.

Jimi Hendrix would rather have been elsewhere when he took the stage at the Atlanta Pop Festival on July 4 1970 to face the largest US audience of his career. He just wanted to hole up in the womb-like sanctuary of his state-of-the-art new Electric Lady studio and craft his next album, but manager Michael Jeffery had him doggedly traversing the brutal pinball itinerary of the Cry Of Love tour.
