Eddie Kramer recently mastered the 5.1 soundtrack for Jimi Hendrix: Live At Woodstock [The Deluxe Edition] in the surround sound suite at Bernie Grundman Mastering. The two-disc DVD chronicles every song played by Hendrix in his landmark performance that closed the Woodstock Festival on August 18, 1969. Kramer, who was Hendrix's original studio engineer was on hand at Woodstock, and soon thereafter, helped conceive and, subsequently, ran Electric Lady Studios in NYC.

The new DVD includes never before seen footage captured by a college student who was experimenting with the new open-reel video format, resulting in 80 minutes of performance. The original theatrical version of Woodstock included only 10 minutes of Hendrix's concert. The new collection also includes a documentary featuring Hendrix performance footage and interviews, a press conference filmed two weeks after Woodstock, and co-producer Kramer's detailed recollection of the recording of the entire epic festival.

"At one point, Jimi noticed a cameraman perched precariously high up on the speaker scaffolding and looked directly into the camera for his performance," remarks Kramer. "In sum, it's a riveting record of one of the most historical rock performances of all time."

Jimi Hendrix: Live At Woodstock [The Deluxe Edition] will be released this coming September 13th by Experience Hendrix through Universal Music Enterprises.
