Buddy Miles Concert Films
Runtime: 1 hr 18 minIn the words of Ben Fong-Torres:
There are reminders of his status here, although he’s playing mostly cover tunes, along with a rock guitarist and bassist, in a club in Paris in 2003, with a big jukebox as his backdrop. Not the most glamorous setting for a guy who performed with Hendrix, Electric Flag, Carlos Santana, and many others.
In this concert, filmed at Switzerland's New Morning Rock Heroes Festival in 1995, Buddy Miles re-works in his own distinctive style a selection of rock and pop classics from the '60s and '70s, concluding with a barnstorming version of three of Jimi Hendrix's biggest hits, Purple Haze, Voodoo Child and Hey Joe.
