Jimi Hendrix "Machine Gun" (Requiem for Fred Hampton and Mark Clark)

Here is a  new upload to MindsiMedia on You Tube

A musical and video interpretation of the December 4th, 1969 shooting of Illinois Black Panther leader Fred Hampton and by members of the Chicago Police and agents the office of state attorney Edward Hanrahan, an event that proved seminal in postwar American race relations social history. It is recounted through interwoven sound and film footage of the January 1st, 1970 concert performance by Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Miles, and Billy Cox (under the impromptu name, "A Band of Gypsys") at the Fillmore East theater in New York City's East Village and archival video of the Vietnam era. The short film features a vivid split-screen montage (evocative of Canadian director Norman Jewison's 1968 "The Thomas Crown Affair') of the turmoil, violence and pyrotechnical chaos that engulfed U.S. domestic and international politics in that epoch.
