Previously unavailable in its full uncut length, Rainbow Bridge mixes the psychedelia of late 60s counterculture with its foremost musical hero, Jimi Hendrix. Shot a mere three months before the guitar god's untimely death in 1970, the story is built around Hendrix's final live performance at the Rainbow Bridge Occult Meditation Center on Maui. Straddling concert footage of Hendrix (backed by drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox) is the story of actress Pat Hartley, as she travels to Hawaii and meets a group trying to establish a new alternative community. What should be immediately noted is that the actual footage of The Jimi Hendrix Experience fills only a fraction of the running time. That said, Hendrix and co deliver suitably exciting renditions of such classics as "Purple Haze" and "Voodoo Chile", which will more than satiate passionate Hendrix fans. Elsewhere, there's a plethora of trippy visuals and lots of hippie's droning on about higher consciousness while smoking marijuana (funnily enough). Still, the DVD version has the helpful option of excising all that nonsense. Otherwise, this is a satisfying if unfortunately padded glimpse of a true musical icon.
