Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight

After some quick background (an old Dick Cavett appearance, a couple interviews with surviving band members) this musical documentary gets down to the nitty gritty--namely, Jimi Hendrix's screamadelic performance at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. The camera work is limited (there are only a couple and they're pointed right at Jimi), but the sound is impressive. Between songs, the film manages to capture some of Jimi's loose, surprisingly humorous style. The cat looks like he's having fun, popping off "God Save the Queen" and "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Hard to believe he died just 18 days after filming this movie. 102 minutes
