Officials with Experience Hendrix, LLC and Legacy Recordings announced Tuesday that the companies will release one of the last live performances of Jimi Hendrix’s career next month.

Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight will be released on Tuesday, June 17th on DVD and Blu-ray. The recording captures what would be his last full performance before his death eighteen days later on September 18th, 1970. His last live performance before his death was an impromptu set at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in Soho less than a month later. The concert presented on Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight documents Hendrix’s headlining performance at the hugely revered festival on August 31st 1970. Hendrix performed to an audience of 600,000 at the festival. It was the largest audience before which he had ever performed. It was also the first time that his new band, rounded out by bassist Billy Cox and drummer Mitch Mitchell, had played together in the UK.

The concert’s presentation on both DVD and Blu-ray will contain the same features including new footage of ‘Hey Joe’ that was not part of the concert recording’s original release. There is also a bonus interview with director Murray Lerner, reproductions of the original Isle of Wight Festival tickets, festival posters and even a copy of Hendrix’s own hand-written directions to the festival. The recording features both a stereo sound mix and ad 5.1 audio surround sound track mixed by Eddie Kramer. Eddie Kramer was Jimi Hendrix’s original recording engineer. The complete track listing for Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight is noted below.
