Jimi Hendrix: Live at Monterey (2007)

A must-see for any guitar/Hendrix/psychedelic-fan, Jimi's performance at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 launched Jimi Hendrix into the public eye of the US and defined the music scene of 1967.

Jimi Hendrix—Live at Woodstock (1999)

Headlining Woodstock, only a couple of years after he exploded onto the US scene at the Monterey Pop Festival, Jimi's legendary performance here is inconsistent, ranging from confusing to astounding. It is this performance that gave the world the feedback-drenched, electrified version of the "Star Spangled Banner." Excellent special features on the DVD.
