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.

    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.Thurlow (California) - See all my reviews, November 14, 2013

This review is from: Moon Monterey & Carmel: Including Santa Cruz & Big Sur (Moon Handbooks) (Paperback) Just returned from a 10 day trip to the Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur areas. Used this guide after also looking at similar offerings from Lonely Planet and Fodors. Thought that this was the best laid out and easiest to read. Overall I'd say it was pretty accurate. Obviously I can't expect a book to cover everything in the area, but it was reasonably thorough. Used Yelp, and Urban Spoon to fill in what it wasn't able to say about all the places to eat. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 25, 2013

It contains the original "Monterey Pop" film plus three others "Jimi Plays at Monterey" "Shake!

    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

    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.

    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.

I have been pondering purchasing some compilation for months and finally settled on this one due to good reviews. Good choice, if I say so myself. Good quality, especially given the technology available at that point in time. Nice little companion booklet which gives backgrounds and comments for each artist. And such outstanding performances. I wish the entire concert were available somewhere, plus video. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 9, 2014

    The Whole of Monterey Bay and Beyond

    One of the great blessings of living on the left coast is the fabulous year round hiking. Nowhere is such hiking more available than along the Monterey coast where temperatures are pleasant pretty much year round. But finding all the hiking opportunities in this region can take some work. Nearly all guidebooks take note of Point Lobos State Preserve, for example. It may not be the single best park in California's state park system, but it is certainly in the top five. The Elkhorn Slough Wildlife refuge is similarly well known. But many of the best trails in this region are found in hidden little preserves and regional parks. And the best way to find these hikes are in the pages of Robert Stone's revised and greatly expanded 'Day Hikes Around Monterey and Carmel.' This book contains 50 new hikes that are not found in the first edition which was itself a very nice volume.New hikes first. This book adds several hikes around Santa Cruz and south to the Monterey county... 5/5 Fritz R. Ward "dayhiker" (Crestline, CA United States) - See all my reviews, March 18, 2013

It is spectacular to watch the reaction from Mama Cass as her mouth literally drops open and to hear the screams from this audience when Janis sings Ball and Chain. By the way this performance is on the 3-CD boxed set released in 1993 called Janis. And to be sure Janis wasn't the only reason to watch Monterey, a haunting set from Otis (a god) and a little heard of guitarist named Jimi Hendrix (a god).

    "Monterey Pop": A REAL Hippie Music Experience

    "Monterey Pop" captures the real essense of a "Hippie" music festival preceding slick commercial "pseudo-Hippie" productionsWith often-jerky hand-held cameras, D. A. Pennepaker brings together color, clothing and culture of the Hippie period supported by its musical boundaries.Present are mainstream Simon & Garfunkel, R&B's Otis Redding, and exotic Hugh Masakela and Marion Makeba's African folk/jazz. Included are Rock's lesser knowns Scott McKenzie, Canned Heat, Country Joe and the Fish and Eric Burdon and the Animals. Featured are "big names": The Who, Jimi Hendrix, Mommas and Poppas, Janis Joplin & Big Brother, Jefferson Airplane. An exciting 18-minute Ravi Shankar raga melds two worlds as a fitting finale.An undercurrent of the film is how Pennepaker catches a "hippie" vs "mainstream" motif.
