This footage is not the rare footage in question.

The sister of the late Guitar God Jimi Hendrix announces that some new rare footage of her late brother, from a camera crew that caught footage of Hendrix both on and off stage, will be released on DVD soon.

Current TV:

Candid, “reality TV”-style footage of Jimi Hendrix at home, backstage and “hanging out” will soon be released, according to the late musician’s sister.

The footage dates from 1969, when a camera crew followed Hendrix for a month, catching him both on and off stage. The Hendrix estate will release the footage in a DVD later this year, as part of a new deal with Universal Music Publishing Group.

Universal is taking over from Sony/ATV Music Publishing, who have represented Hendrix outside of the USA since 1998. Experience Hendrix, a company run by the late guitarist’s sister, Janie Hendrix, continues to represent his music within the US.
