Joe Boyd's 1973 authorized tribute to Jimi Hedrix will be released as a Two-Disc Special Edition DVD by Warner Home Video (WHV) on 30th January 2006 in the U.K.. Titled simply A Film About Jimi Hendrix, this film was originally released three years after the musician's untimely death, and set the standard as to how a visual biography should be done according to many critis.

The pioneering rockumentary brings together the best live footage spanning Hendrix's entire career from his beginnings to the iconic Monterey (1967) and Isle of Wight (1970) Festival performances, all digitally transferred and restored. Included in the film are the classic songs "Hey Joe," "Rock Me Baby," "Like A Rolling Stone," and the milestone "Star Spangled Banner".

Featuring the guitar legend on stage and behind the scenes, classic concert footage is interspersed with interviews with friends and prominent musicians giving first-hand recollections, including Pete Townshend, Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, Lou Reed, and more covering the many facets of the Hendrix story, capturing the sound, look and spirit of the mid to late 1960s and early 1970s.

The long-awaited Two-Disc Special Edition of the 1973 documentary is loaded with extras and completely re-mastered to provide exceptional sound and picture quality, and includes Never-before-seen performance of 'Stone Free' from the July 4, 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival, The Making Of Dolly Dagger' - Producer/Engineer Eddie Kramer breaks down the mix and 'From Ukulele to the Strat' - 60 minute bonus featurettes remembering Hendrix.
