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.

    IT'S NICE TO HAVE THIS BACK IN CIRCULATION FOR THOSE WHO MISSED IT BEFORE

    THIS REVIEW IS FOR THE 2013 4 CD EDITION OF "THE MONTEREY INTERNATIONAL POP FESTIVAL".AMAZON NEEDS TO DIFFERENTIATE between various editions of this set and place reviews under the correct edition. Reviews under the "Monterey" heading, as I write this, include older editions and the more recent 2 CD edition. Confusing! Hopefully Amazon will correct this oversight.This is quite a time for fans of live music from the late 60's/early 70's. Not only this Monterey set, but the multi-disc 1972 concert from the Grateful Dead in Veneta, Oregon. Plus--The Beatles' Vol. 2 of their BBC recordings is set for release soon. So much music, so little time.In a nutshell-if you don't already own one of the earlier editions of this 4 CD set--this is worth purchasing. The Salvo label has done a good overall job of presenting this music in a package which this historic event demands. And when you consider the prices for earlier editions--it's a no-brainer... 5/5 Stuart Jefferson (San Diego,Ca) - See all my reviews, September 12, 2013

    The best pop/rock music festival ever! The first one by the way!

    Bought this one through Amazon UK (it reaches you faster in Colombia, never understood why). This box set I had bought it 20 years ago in an enormous box that I finally lost to a girlfriend. Now this box has a proper size and a definitely better sound (not pitches, like this edition from 1993). The booklet is the same I bought that time and is gorgeous, with quotes from all the musicians that took part in that wonderful festival. Monterey was organized by John Phillips, the composer and leader of that terrific vocal foursome, "Mamas and the Papas". The festival did not have the disastrous conditions of Woodstock and its audience, back there in 1967, was a manageable 200,000 people. Woodstock, in my humble opinion, had a taste of marketing, excess and musically talking a worst set of performers (the best names in Woodstock are in Monterey, with some exceptions like Ten Years After, Sly&The Family Stone and Santana) and a worst sound in the recordings (blame in on the logistic chaos... 5/5 O.

    The most powerful 40 minutes of Hendrix plus super extras!

    Jimi Hendrix's closing set at the Monterey Pop Festival (following the Who's destruction of their own instruments) was only 40 minutes long - but what an impressive 40 minutes! Will anyone who has seen the footage of him burning his guitar on stage (shown on the cover of this DVD) every forget that image?This reasonably priced DVD from Experience Hendrix (managed by Jimi's sister Janie) contains those 40 minutes and so much more. Guitar aficionados will appreciate the option to see different camera angles (my DVD player shows the angle image throughout so it wasn't important to me). Archivist types will enjoy the inclusion of the earliest existing footage of the Hendrix band playing in a small club in 1967. The new documentary "American Landing" has some fascinating interviews with those involved and is useful in explaining Hendrix's popularity to the next generation of fans.Another bonus which I found as a "hidden gem" is "Music Love and Flowers" a nice mini... 5/5 Steven I.

If you are a Hendrix fan this is a must have. Before this show a very small precentage of the US even knew about him, but after Monterey he became a household name. One of the best live recordings ever. Jimi's attitude is very carefree and his personality really shines through. As a guitar player he had no equal in 1967 and this DVD proves the point well. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 3, 2008
