Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church
MAD | Black History Month | Music Mondays
Electric Church tells the story of the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s involvement as the headliner of the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival, 1970, then hailed as the ‘Southern Woodstock’. His performance at the Second Atlanta International Pop Festival was not only significant on a musical level, but also in terms of socio-political dynamics. It was assumed that rural audiences would not take kindly to "long-hair" bands, and that black and white artists could not comfortably exist on the same bill; Atlanta Pop set out to challenge those beliefs. Hendrix’s music and message of universal love made him the ideal artist and, appropriately, was the first act booked for the festival. Ten weeks after the festival, sadly, he was dead.
Songs include: Stone Free, Purple Haze, All Along The Watchtower, Foxy Lady and more. The audio soundtrack includes stereo and 5.1 surround sound mixes by Hendrix’s recording engineer Eddie Kramer, taken directly from the original master tapes.Black History Month 3 Ticket Pack - $30
