I'll be preordering this one as soon as it hits Amazon UK.

It isn't his best performance but still Jimi in HD.

plus this is going to have unreleased camera angles and a totally unseen audience show from another date.
This is going to be an awesome release.

Just found this in the press release

Quote:

The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey offers all existing film footage of that epochal performance presented in its original sequence. The original 16mm camera reversal footage shot by D.A. Pennebaker’s Monterey Pop film crew has been transferred to high-definition specs and is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The DVD soundtrack features new 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo mixes by Eddie Kramer, the engineer so closely associated with the Jimi Hendrix and his legacy, from the original eight-track live recordings made at the concert by remote engineer Wally Heider.
Also dts 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo

Oh, and according to jimihendrix.com, it won't. It has the HD-DVD listed as Europe only.

-------

Just a reminder it's up at Amazon.co.uk for only 14.99, so around $31 after shipping to America.

Sweet this is one of my favorite Criterion releases and ill definitly be picking this one up. Jimi in HD, now that is a pair that is just made for each other. That opening sequence where the painter throws up a mural, and I do mean throws up, in like 1 minute flat is still a mind boggling scene to behold.

I hope it sticks. The October date disappeared off of the jimihendrix.com site and was replaced with "HD-DVD to be released in Europe"
