Middle Georgia Raceway - Byron, Georgia. 400,000 sunburned bodies. Jimi Hendrix headlines the Atlanta Pop Festival, a monster stop near the end of his last American Tour. With him are Experience drummer Mitch Mitchell and Band of Gypsys bassist Billy Cox. Jimi and Billy were army buddies stationed in the South in '61. Nine years later they return as the Cry of Love Band. Their 'Band Of Gypsys' album is in the US Top 5, and the tour yields some of Jimi's best playing. His combined Mitchell/Cox rhythm section defines the ultimate power trio .
Electric Church kindly references the festival's debacles, including water shortages and fractured paid admissions even as it rightfully glorifies Hendrix as a musician and a rock star. The film frames Atlanta Pop as an outgrowth of the counterculture of the times as well as the racial strife fermenting in the American south in general, a microcosm of which seems set to occur at the site, a racetrack in the small town of Byron, Georgia south of the Atlanta metropolis

It’s assumed that Woodstock saw Hendrix play the largest audience of his career. However, more people saw him play a set with Billy Cox and Mitch Mitchell in the unlikely, sweltering setting of a soybean field in Atlanta shortly after midnight on July 4, 1970. This excellent documentary reveals footage of Hendrix playing; he looks older than 27, as if he has lived 30 years in the last three, but still effortlessly conjuring liquid fire from his fretboard, whether on Purple Haze or an out of key but still devastating All Along The Watchtower. Amid crew-cut interviewers or staid-looking musical.
