    I have no idea whether it's the same documentation on the Web or TV:

    From the brief description, it seems this release will be audio only.

    As said by Janie - see "Janie in Brazil" thread - two releases are expected by the end of the year, one of them, the documentary "Electric Church" which, she said, would be seen first on television.
    Exactly as was done with the previous documentary, "Hear My Train", right?
    If so, the release on DVD will probably be somewhat different and more complete, as before.

    I certainly hope so as I don't subscribe to Showtime anymore. I didn't watch it anymore after Dexter ended.

    That's probably a mistake in the listing, the category is "CDs & Vinyl", the heading says "Blu-Ray" and the format is listed as "DVD Audio", that covers a whole lot of different audio in one go

    Jimi Hendrix performance at Atlanta Pop Festival chronicled in Showtime documentary

    August 3, 2015 | Filed in: ajc music scene, atlanta festivals, music movies, music TV.


    The documentary will air on Showtime in September.

    BY MELISSA RUGGIERI
    The association most people have between Jimi Hendrix and massive festivals is Woodstock.
    But on July 3-5, 1970, about 100 miles south of Atlanta in Byron, Hendrix played to the largest audience of his career, an estimated 300,000-400,000, at the second Atlanta International Pop Festival.
    On Sept. 4, Hendrix’s historic performance – but one not always mentioned – will receive deserved attention when Showtime airs “Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church,” a new documentary about Hendrix’s appearance and the circumstances surrounding it.

    In addition to the broadcast, Experience Hendrix L.L.C. and Legacy Recordings will release “Freedom: Jimi Hendrix Experience Atlanta Pop Festival” as a 2-CD set and a 200-gram 2-LP vinyl set (the first 5,000 vinyl units will be individually numbered). The audio release will include six performances that are not part of the Showtime documentary.
    A DVD and Blu-ray version of the film will arrive Oct. 30 with bonus content.
    “Electric Church” includes interviews with legendary Atlanta concert promoter Alex Cooley, who talks about how, despite a lineup already stocked with Bob Seger, B.B. King and the Allman Brothers Band, Hendrix was needed to boost the festival so it would be considered a major cultural event.
    Others who agreed to interviews in the film are Hendrix’s Experience bandmate Billy Cox, Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood, Rich Robinson, Kirk Hammett, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi.
    Fans can expect to see 16mm color footage of Hendrix’s July 4 appearance, which took place only 10 weeks before he died. Performances include “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Purple Haze” and “Straight Ahead,” which Hendrix had anticipated to release on the album he was working on that summer.
    In the film, Cooley remarks that Hendrix’s version of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” played against a backdrop of fireworks, “knocked peoples’ socks off.”

    The official site info:

    http://www.jimihendrix.com/us/news/j...ndrix-electric

    The Atlanta festival footage in Electric Church was shot by Steve Rash, later known for directing such Hollywood films as The Buddy Holly Story and Can’t Buy Me Love. Rash intended for the footage he and his team were filming to be used for a documentary in the vein of Woodstock. When a deal couldn’t be secured, virtually all of the film lay undeveloped inside Rash’s barn for over three decades. The full-color film stock held up remarkably well, and makes for a transcendent viewing experience.Bill Mankin, who worked on the construction and stage crews for the festival, provides liner notes for the Freedom package, describing his first-hand account. He explains, “At the center of the vortex was the master magician on guitar: the personification of a life lived fully and wildly, with no boundaries, no limitations, and aiming for the stars at light speed.”

    "Directed by John McDermott, "Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church" showcases breathtaking,(...)"

    And what about that, it's McDermott's debut as a documentary director?

    The audio version, “Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival,” will be released by Sony Legacy on Aug. 28. The track list of the two CD/LP set features “Fire,” “Lover Man,” “Spanish Castle Magic,” “Red House,” “Room Full of Mirrors,” “Hear My Train A Comin','” “Message to Love” on disc 1 and “All Along the Watchtower,” “Freedom,” “Foxey Lady,” “Hey Joe,” “Voodoo Child (Slight Return),” “Stone Free,” “Star Spangled Banner” and “Straight Ahead” on disc 2. The concert was released previously in the four-CD box set “Stages.” The list for the new set doesn't include “Purple Haze” from the earlier box, but does feature several songs that weren't on the earlier one.
    So the CD won't include Purple Haze? That is an odd decision.

    The Amazon.com setlist for the audio CD includes Purple Haze.

    Here's the news story that said it is not included

    I hope the DVD/Blu-Ray has some bonus material like the German TV interview from September 1970 that's been sitting in their vaults for years now gathering dust.
