    Yeah it's kind of bizarre to put something up for a price like that and not even describe where it was filmed, what the quality is like etc.

    That ebayer is a con artist-- try pinning him down on the content and he will just give evasive info-- he did the same thing about year ago. Dont be fooled

    Oh come on, give the dude a break. He's just being honest. He can't provide that info because the item is described as "NEVER PLAYED".

    Yeah, but if he's never played it, how does he know it's really film of Jimi Hendrix?

    About a year or two ago, when this same guy was also active on ebay, i purchased one of his reels, which turned out to be a part of the 'Film about Jimi Hendrix', Super8 with sound (very poor sound).
    At that time however, the guy sold them for $20 which was more OK for me.
    My guess is that he has more reels of portions of 'AFAJH', and that those are the items he's offering for sale.

    Q: How do you drive a jimi fan crazy?
    A: It's a film of Jimi Hendrix, NEVER PLAYED!
    Q: Can you tell me what's on it?
    A: Of course not, IT'S NEVER BEEN PLAYED...
    Q: But if it's never been played, then how can you say...
    A: Shut up and give me $500!
    Wonder what Rick from Pawn Stars would have to say about this?

    Would that be the same guy who sold a copy of Cry Of Love, "signed by Jimi"?

    I pity the fool that fell for that...

    Haha okay, thanks for the clarification. I don't normally buy stuff on eBay anyway, was just looking around at some Jimi stuff. Hope this guy hasn't scammed too many people with this nonsense.
