Jimi Hendrix: Rainbow Bridge (1996)
Starring: Jimi Hendrix
Director: Chuck Wein
Category: Music, Special Interest, Documentary
Studio: Rhino
137 mins



Available on video for the first time, Rainbow Bridge, the controversial 1971 cult classic is now completely restored and here in its original 125-minute length.

Often mistaken as a Jimi Hendrix concert, Rainbow Bridge is actually a dizzying mix of countercultural lifestyles and politics set in Hawaii 1970.Directed by Chuck Wein, Rainbow Bridge tracks the journey of actress Pat Harley across the Pacific to Maui, Hawaii.Once in Maui, Hartley is immediately welcomed by a group of young people determined to establish a new alternative community.

While the film's soundtrack is filled throughout with such classic Hendrix studio recordings as Pali Gap and Dolly Dagger, the centerpiece of Rainbow Bridge remains the 17 minutes of Hendrix's July 1970 concert atop Heliacal Volcano in Maui, Hawaii.Accompanied by the film's cast and crew, Hartley is treated to a private performance by the legendary guitarist.Hendrix is joined by bassist Billy Cox and drummer Mitch Mitchell and delivers high-voltage renditions of Foxy Lady, Hey Baby/In From The Storm, as well as exciting excerpts of Hear My Train A Comin', Purple Haze & Voodoo Chile (Slight Return).
