Titled From The Monkees To The Hollywood Bowl, the 10-minute mini-doc explores the early days of Hendrix’s career and his subsequent journey to international acclaim.
Specifically, the film covers the musician’s short-lived, post-Monterey Pop stint as the opening act for The Monkees in July 1967. It also delves into Hendrix’s experience opening for The Mamas & The Papas at the Hollywood Bowl.
Interviews with artists like Micky Dolenz and Chas Chandler, as well as Jimi’s former Experience bandmates Noel Redding and Mitch Mitchell, are also included.
Notably, From The Monkees To The Hollywood Bowl comes ahead of a soon-to-be-released live album featuring Hendrix’s iconic 1967 Hollywood Bowl performance. The historic concert marked one of the last shows the Jimi Hendrix Experience would perform as relatively unknown artists.
Arriving on 10 November, the 10-track album features some of Hendrix’s early essentials, like The Wind Cries Mary, Foxey Lady, Purple Haze, as well as covers of hits by The Beatles, The Troggs and Bob Dylan.
