Swedish TV Locates Lost Hendrix Show

This is wonderful news. A Swedish television station has found a video tape of a concert by Jimi Hendrix recorded in 1969 just months before his death.
"The Jimi Hendrix concert was found on a shelf together with other two-inch tapes that were about to be erased," says Catarina Wilson. "The people working with the project looked at the tape before erasing it and found the original, unedited recording. Some of it had already been broadcast, but not the entire fifty-six minutes. The tape should have been erased in 1969, but there was probably a Jimi Hendrix fan in the archive who wanted to look at it again or who understood the great value of it."

Fresh Hendrix! This is fantastic. Release it on DVD super quick!
