Jimi Hendrix Hear My Train A Comin'

I have made a number of Hendrix films, and this one was made for PBS as part of their American Masters Series. The film was originally going to cover the period from 1966-1969, but American Masters wanted the’ birth to death story’. In order to help tell Jimi’s story we interviewed former girlfriends and family members who had never, or very rarely turned up in films about Jimi. In this section we look at Jimi’s return to Seattle in 1968, seven years after leaving home to join the Army.
