Available on DVD for the first time, Rainbow Bridge, the controversial 70's cult classic, is now completely restored and seen here in its original full length theatrical form.
Often mistaken as a Jimi Hendrix concert, Rainbow Bridge is actually a dizzying mix of countercultural lifestyles and politics set in Hawaii 1970. Directed by Chuck Wein, Rainbow Bridge tracks the journey of actress Pat Hartley across the Pacific to Maui, Hawaii. Once in Maui, Hartley is immediatly welcomed by a group of young people determined to establish a new alternative community. While the film's soundtrack is filled throughout with such classic Hendrix studio recordings as "Pali Gap" and "Dolly Dagger", the centrepiece of Rainbow Bridge remains the 17 minutes of Hendrix's July 1970 concert atop Haleakala Volcano in Maui, Hawaii. Accompanied by the film's cast and crew, Hartley is treated to a private performance by the legendary guitarist. Hendrix is joined by bassist Billy Cox and drummer Mitch Mitchell and delivers high-voltage renditions of "Foxy Lady". "Hey Baby (The Land Of The New Rising Sun), as well as exciting excerpts of "Hear My Train A Comin'", "Purple Haze", and "Voodoo Chile"(Slight Return).
