A History lesson in performance,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Complete Monterey Pop Fest [DVD]  [US Import] (DVD)
This terrific DVD set is a history lesson in the art of performing. The sheer energy and Chutzpah of Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, The Who and Ravi Shankar (really, watch and learn!) is enthralling - we'll never see their like again. Overall, a fascinating package with many reminiscences by photographers and musicians in audio/visual and printed form - a detailed booklet is included which fleshes out the history behind the festival. A joy.
