Los Angeles Superior Court made a decision that paved the way for music producer Jerry Goldstein to release The Last Experience, never-before-seen Jimi Hendrix concert footage, behind-the-scenes views and insight into the life of the artist--filmed on his final European 1969 concert tour.
Says Goldstein, "I'm pleased with the outcome, and now I can move forward with the worldwide release of this movie, which Jimi and I planned on distributing over 45 years ago." He adds, "Our current plan is to release the movie in IMAX 3D, so that people can truly experience the power and impact of Jimi Hendrix, as if they were there in person."
The Last Experience primarily captures a day in the life of Jimi Hendrix, centered around the Feb. 24, 1969 performance at Royal Albert Hall in London. The film was produced and recorded by Goldstein and the late Steve Gold with the intention of assembling and distributing a motion picture around the performance.
Hendrix died on Sept. 18, 1970 at age 27.
