ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Scheduled as a two-day event, Sunday's concert was rained out. Inspired Jimi Hendrix to write "Rainy day, Dream Away". Seen in the documentary "Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin'". Decades later, the festival began to be referred to colloquially as the "Miami Pop Festival", leading to confusion with the actual Miami Pop Festival.
Founders Richard O'Barry and Michael Lang would become later famous as the promoters of Woodstock.

This special presentation of Jimi Hendrix: Hear My Train A Comin' presents the definitive documentary about the extraordinary life of the greatest guitarist of all time. As seen on PBS' American Masters (PBS), this critically acclaimed film, directed by Bob Smeaton (The Beatles Anthology; Festival Express), unveils previously unseen performance footage and home movies while sourcing an extensive archive of photographs, drawings, family letters and more to provide new insight into the musician's personality and genius with interviews with Hendrix himself, commentary from well-known friends and musicians including Paul McCartney, Noel Redding, Mitch Mitchell, Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer, Steve Winwood, as well as revealing glimpses into Jimi from those closest to him. The film details the meteoric rise of the Experience, the creation of his groundbreaking music, the building of Electric Lady Studios, his state of the art recording facility in Greenwich Village and concludes with poignant footage from his final performance in Germany in September 1970, just 12 days before his death at age 27.
Never previously available in any form, Miami Pop Festival, introduces the first recorded stage performances of "Hear My Train A Comin'" and "Tax Free" while showcasing definitive live takes on such classics as "Fire," "Hey Joe," "I Don't Live Today" and "Purple Haze." The package includes never before published photos taken at the festival and an essay by award-winning music journalist and Grammy Museum Executive Director Bob Santelli. This album includes the show as originally recorded on site by Hendrix's long term sound engineer, Eddie Kramer.
