About this book
Monterey, California conjures images of a coastal city rimmed by crystal clear waters and bolstered by tourism; yet these edenic views belie the community's often turbulent history, originating with the Native Americans who lived here for a millennium and Hispanic exploration and colonization. At each stage in the growth of this city, residents have successfully overcome the division of multiple rule, diverse nationalities, and fledgling identities to fashion a homeland in the western landscape of America that is deservingly proud of its character and history.

    Essential but not complete. Where's Janis?

    I begrudgingly give this DVD boxed set five stars because this is a fantastic, albeit incomplete, document of the most important rock event in history. Everyone who considers themselves to be a rock fan should own this set. Having said that, the filmmaker's idea of "complete" is questionable in terms of the long-awaited outtakes disc, especially when you consider that he devoted five, count 'em five, outtake songs to Tiny Tim, and only one (??!!!) to Janis Joplin, who was considered "the star" of the festival as stated by Mama Cass in her commentary included in the package. (Not to mention Big Brother guitarist James Gurley, who received equal praise at Monterey as did Janis.)This sad state of affairs is beyond explanation. Why wasn't Big Brother and the Holding Company accorded their entire set instead of one token song, which is "Combination of the Two?" There is very little footage of the singer that exists at all, anywhere.

    Revelatory performances.

    The film restoration work looks and sounds magnificent. Eddie Kramer gets extra congratulations on the 5.1 audio mix. That said, the 3rd disc is mainly in stereo only.Karen's review below is a bit harsh. If you actually listen to the main film's commentary, you will understand why more footage isn't available: Not every second of 3 days of performances were captured. Concert films did not exist as a genre at this time (see the annoyingly choppy 'Festival!' documenting Newport), so this was new territory and the point of the film was to make a document that gave an overall feel for the event and time. Pennebaker and his crew had to decide which songs to film, which seems to have been predetermined by Dylan's buddy Bob Neuwirth who was more familiar with the scene than the filmmaker. They would turn on a red light on stage to signal to start filming the next song. At some times, they didn't have a plan and the camera men would shoot at their discretion, so some performances... 5/5 Eric S. Stroud - See all my reviews, January 7, 2007

    Well Written, But Disappointingly Too Many BW Photos

    When I guage a travel guide I look for clear, relatively concise writing that covers key and off-the-beaten-track sights to see, maps to help me gain my bearings as to what I can reasonably do in a day or days, and color photos to help me decide if I will be intrigued by a locale and want to photograph it myself. The Moon travel books are consistently well-written. This one is no exception. But the preponderance of black and white photos is a big letdown.For a printed book I can appreciate the publisher's urge to keep costs down, make the book affordable to more travelers and still make a profit. But that is crazy logic to apply to a Kindle book! It costs no more to digitally publish a full-color illustrated travel guide than a BW one. So shame on Moon for making the Kindle eBook anything less than full color!

    Over the moon about Monterey...

    The area around Monterey Bay is perpetually popular with tourists and native Californians. Too few get past Cannery Row, the Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey to see the many other fine sights in the area. This Moon Handbook to Monterey & Carmel takes in the entire Monterey Peninsula, along with Monterey Bay as far north as the beach town of Santa Cruz, and the central coast as far south as the spectacular scenery of Big Sur.This handbook works systematically through the possibilities for visitors, beginning with Monterey and Carmel, and proceeding to Salinas,Santa Cruz, Big Sur, and Morro Bay, identifying museums, art galleries, beaches, parks, golf courses, restaurants, and places to stay. The concluding chapters address the unique geography of the area, along with some practicalities. The clear and easy to read text is very nicely supplemented by maps, diagrams, and photographs, both color and black and white.This Moon Handbook is pretty close... 5/5 D. S.

    Consider Purchasing the 3-DVD or 4-CD Box Instead

    First of all, if your interest in this June 1967 concert is only casual, or if you're on a budget, or if you're trying to conserve space in your home, then this 2-CD set will suffice. If so, then consider my rating 4-star. It contains some really great performances, has a total of 26 tracks and clocks in at around 95 minutes. It also boasts 3 previously unreleased on CD tracks (2 by Simon & Garfunkel, 1 by Buffalo Springfield). So, this is a fine compact collection For What It's Worth [sorry, I couldn't resist].However, for those of you who really dig The Summer of Love sound, then I recommend getting the 3-DVD set which runs 238 minutes. This DVD set contains Pennebaker's original concert film, a second disk featuring the complete Hendrix and Otis Redding performances... 3/5 Amazon Customer (Columbia, MD United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Worth the price

    For those of us who remember the Summer of Love and still enjoy the music of that era, this is lots of fun.You get to hear Eric Burdon sing about Monterey. You also hear a very polished set of Simon and Garfunkel. Simon and Garfunkel play their two best songs of the time, Homeward Bound and the classic Sounds of Silence.Janis Joplin is also in top forn with Big Brother singing the blues.The Byrds with David Crosby finish the first CDOn the second CD you hear Grace Slick and the Airplane do their two classic songs, Somebody to Love and White Rabbit.You get to hear two songs of Otis Redding and his classic performance at Monterey. The real find to me is Buffalo Springfield with Stills and Young doing, For What its Worth. This is the only recording where you can actually hear them live. The one thing of note here is the absence of Neil Young as David Crosby (at the time with the Byrds) stands in. C,S&N was already in the making. CS&M would play just 2 years... 4/5 Michael Wheeler "Stratocaster" (Las Vegas, Nevada United States) - See all my reviews, July 9, 2007

    0 5/5 Skip (San Jose, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Safari Ltd Monterey Bay Aquarium Sea Life Bottlenose Dolphin (Toy) the dolphin is very glossy, but has a very hefty feel to it. Seems like it is well-made, and life-like. Larger than I expected (larger than the other Safari bottle nose dolphin). My daughter (5yrs old) loves it.Not convinced if the paint will survive after the abuse it will endure (child flicking fins, maneuvering tails, etc), but when a toy gets used, I expect some wear and tear.If the paint doesn't last, or any other unexpected deterioration occurs prematurely, I will update. Otherwise, it seems to be a quality product. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 1, 2013

    Noisy when you walk!

    0 1/5 GDF "goldlightning" (Kansas/USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Dunham by New Balance Men's Monterey Fisherman Sandal (Apparel) Really wanted to love these sandals, true to size and width but I had to send them back for a full refund. The adjustable velcro strap on the heels makes a noise with each step on each foot like the velcro is pulling apart. I adjusted them every way I could think and always the same annoying noise. Who wants to wear a sandal that makes noise with every step?Shame on you Dunham/New Balance, do your homework before putting out such a subpar product, your design engineers sure dropped the ball on this shoe concerning the heel closure. I guess the "Made in China" tag speaks volumes as to the quality of the above mentioned problem. Do the Chinese make anything of quality? 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , April 17, 2011

    all around perfect casual sandal

    0 5/5 renatenevada - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dunham by New Balance Men's Monterey Fisherman Sandal (Shoes) Bought these for my husband in 9EE. First thing we noticed was that they are super light weight. No dragging one's feet around in those sandals! Next, my husband noted that his toes were comfortable in the front, not stubbing against anything at all. Inside of the shoe is very soft, and the Velcro strap is easy to loosen and close again. Finally, while these sandals will be worn with shorts, they could also go with jeans or Khakis as they have clean lines and don't look lumpy or coarse. Great find if you have wide feet where selection becomes more limited. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 9, 2014
