Jimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight

As far as music goes I`m not sure anybody gave a great performance at the Isle of Wight festival. Sound and gear problems galore and just as many forms of drugs and alcohol to match most people ended up producing nothing but a serious wall of noise and Hendrix was no exception. I was lucky enough to catch it on the big screen recently and while that was a treat I must be honest and say this Murray Lerner documentary does not show Jimi at his best. Mind you, if you`re a fan of industrial music you may greatly enjoy this baby but really it is only of interest as it was shot just a couple of weeks before Hendrix died.
