Rainbow Bridge documentary film in production


In a recent Tori Amos podcast (October 27, 2016), Janie Hendrix was interviewed and she mentioned
that Experience Hendrix were working on a documentary about Jimi's visit to Mauii, Hawaii and the two sets he played there,
sequences of which ended up in the zany movie "Rainbow Bridge".
Apart from the documentary, let's hope that a bonus section or DVD2 will give us
all available footage of the two sets, with the best that they can do with the poor sound recordings.

Anyway,
it's nice to see the estate keeping up the pace and delivering more and more Hendrix!



The Jimi Hendrix Experience at The Royal Albert Hall film
to remain under wraps...for now

The judges have ordered that the film remains in the vault until the legal proceedings are fully settled.

Full story

I wonder if Experience Hendrix are unable to release the recordings before the film is released?.

Hendrix/Stills - what happened?

Following the release of the Stephen Stills box set "Carry On" which included a Hendrix/Stills "jam" (see Guest Appearences section)
there seemed to be plans under way for a full album of material recorded by the two.
Let's just hope if the recordings do ever come out that there will be no modern day overdubs from Stills, like he did for the disappointing box set track.


Black Gold?????

This is the most eagerly anticipated item in the vault.
Experience Hendrix have spoken of their intention to release this legendary personal demo tape by Jimi at sometime over the next decade.
  One track titled "Suddenly November Morning" appeared on the 2010 box set "West Coast Seattle Boy", leaving us hungry for more.

Here is more information about "Black Gold":

The Hendrix/ Zappa Tape?
There are apparently two tapes in the hand's of the Zappa Family trust which feature Jimi jamming with Frank. 
One tape is from a jam at the Garrick Theatre in 1967 and the other from a jam in Zappa's basement studio.
The Zappa estate own the tapes and have expressed interest in releasing the studio jam.
This hit the press a couple of years ago but nothing has been heard about it since.
Hey Dweezil, any news?

The Hendrix/Jagger Tape?

On November 27th 1969, after dropping by to see The Rolling Stones at Madison Square Gardens, a party was thrown for Jimi at TV presenter Flip Wilson's apartment in the Hotel Navarro. After the party Jimi and Mick Jagger went round to the home of Deering Howe. They got the guitars out and with Howe on harmonica, the three of them played tracks from The Stones new album "Let It Bleed"! A proto "Dolly Dagger" was also captured on the tape machine which recorded the whole thing. The tape remains in the possession of Mr. Howe who promised to Mick that that was where it would remain (unfortunately for us).
Many thanks to Yazid Manou for bringing this information to us.
