Only part of it:

"The original VHS, (and subsequent DVD version) of Hendrix's Woodstock performance released in the early '90s ran for 57 minutes while the new version including the six songs not previously offered runs over 80 minutes. Experience Hendrix has teamed with Warner Bros. to restore all of the existing film footage from Hendrix's legendary Woodstock performance. This new edition was entirely re-edited by Jere Huggins, one of the original editors of the 1970 Academy Award ® winning Woodstock documentary feature film. Huggins worked extensively with Experience Hendrix's Janie Hendrix and John McDermott, as well as noted Warner Bros. film restoration specialist Bill Rush to incorporate a variety of previously unseen camera angles and coverage. Rush has been involved in the careful, critically acclaimed restoration of many classic films, including Public Enemy, Casablanca, and Out Of The Past. The result is a frame-by-frame digital restoration of the original 16 mm negatives that presents Hendrix in vibrant color and detail never before seen on screen. Rush is co-producer, for Warner Bros., of Jimi Hendrix: Live At Woodstock. "

I like the fact that they are *finally* putting out the whole concert. I don't like the freaking fact that they are making hardcore fans buy it again.

And they will do this again for BluRay and/or HD-DVD too.

All RIGHT!
My DVD of "Jimi at Bethel" got stolen last year so I'm ready for this. Posted Image
However many people lied about being at Woodstock....if someone tells you they saw Hendrix there, just slap 'em.
I was re-viewing the editor's cut of the movie a couple weeks ago and when Jimi played on Monday morning it looked like maybe a couple of hundred worn out freaks in front of the stage.

"I was born to ramble, born to rove
Some men are searchin for the Holy Grail
But there ain't nothin sweeter 
Than riden' the rails."

That's an interesting coincidence in that I finally, after almost 3 years, got around to watching the Jimi Hendrix at Monterey bonus disc a few nites ago.

By the way, does any recommend getting or not getting the DVD called Jimi Hendrix (Deluxe edition)?:

I'm curiopus about the Jime Deluxe edition as well.

I'd rather Warner put out some mega-boxset of woodstock, with the original cut of the film, and than extra disc's of complete performances with out all the shots of hippies blabbing aboput how their conciousness is collected at the moment is going to change the world, blah blah.

How does the rights work for this? I know that "The Greatful Dead" (wouldn't miss them) and Neil Young (would love to see), have both asked not to have their performances released, but do they have the right too? I really don't mind in the case of historical concert appearances if the owners of the material release stuff with out the artists permission, as it's usually ego that makes the artists want to hold it back. I know now that everything is pretty much sewn up rights wise before the event, but have no idea how a bunch of junky potheads ran something like Woodstock.

I would also like to see a comprehensive Woodstock 94 release, so I could ditch my VHS copies.
My wallet cries me to sleep!

This post kills threads!

I believe that Pete also doesn't want the Who's Woodstock set released.

Can someone explain to me why an 80 minute performance (no matter how great) merits a 2 disc set?

I think it has to do with the Hendrix family milking his name for all its worth.

I have a feeling that if Jimi Hendrix were alive today, he would probably have done what Jimi Page did and just put out a 2 DVD set of all the best performances. I want to remember Jimi for all the best stuff he did and not wade through a bunch of crude to get to the nuggets.

I don't know why it's a 2 disc set though I don't think it's due to anyone milking anybody. It doesn't cost any more than a single disc.

The current issue of ICE Magazine has a cover story on this DVD. There's a lot of extras, inluding footage from an amateur videographer who taped the whole show, available in a seperate cut of the performance. (Apparantly, film was at a premium, so the official 'Woodstock" camera crew would turn off their cameras when there was no music was being performed, which means that they missed most of Jimi's between songs raps).

I believe the list of the DVD is $19.98, meaning that you could probably find it for $15 if you look around

I've got the Jimi Hendrix Live At Woodstock DVD. The double disc. The poster before me is right. The second look part is more interesting in my opinion.
