On July 30, 1970, Jimi Hendrix played two sets on a makeshift stage on the lower slope of the dormant Haleakala volcano on Maui, Hawaii. The sets were filmed with a view to being included in manager Michael Jeffery’s ill-fated Rainbow Bridge film, though in the end only 17 minutes of Hendrix concert footage was used.

Now the Haleakala volcano concerts have been fully restored by Eddie Kramer for a live album, Live In Maui, and accompanying feature-length documentary Music, Money, Madness… Jimi Hendrix In Maui.

Watch Jimi Hendrix playing “Voodoo Child (Slight Return)” from the Maui concert below:


Live In Maui will be released on November 20 on 2xCDs, followed by a 3xLP release on December 11. Both formats come with a Blu-Ray disc featuring the documentary, which is directed by John McDermott and incorporates never-before-released original footage and new interviews with first-hand participants and key players such as Billy Cox, Eddie Kramer and several Rainbow Bridge cast members, as well as its director Chuck Wein.
