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. Knowing that there is an entire set of her... 5/5 Karen Anderson (USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Complete Monterey Pop Festival (The Criterion Collection) (DVD) 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.

    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

    Great for Tablet PC's ...

    0 5/5 Taylorpamm - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Tumi Alpha Bravo, Monterey Sling (Accessory) I was specifically looking for a Tumi product that would be small, offer compartments for my business elements (keys, cards, pens, adapters, etc.) - and carry my tablet PC around with me over my shoulder. This (in my view) is the perfect business man's companion. I've owned many Tumi products in the past - and I purchased this one - to serve the 'everyday' - take my tablet with me wherever I'm going - function. This allows me the freedom of knowing - that if I need to give a presentation - I can immediately grab the tablet / adapter / pen and paper from the 'sling' and fire it up - and also knowing when people (at the end of the presentation) ask "Do you have a card" - reach into the sling and give it to them. For me - it's the only sling I carry - and I own 3 or 4 others - that are now 'collecting dust' in a closet somewhere. I love this Tumi sling. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 5, 2013

    Doesn't fit iPad gen 4 with case

    I love Tumi bags. I have two Tumi backpacks and I get asked about them all the time. They're well made and look great...I purchased the Hickory color of this sling which is black with brown leather trim. The bag has a very unique but understated/business look that doesn't scream "man-bag". The front main compartment has a zipper that zips vertically the length of the bag and two accessory pockets on either side (one for phone/keys and another taller pocket ventilated for a bottle or umbrella). The main compartment is surprisingly roomy and useful.The back of the bag is stiff and padded to protect the iPad. My only negative with this bag is that the iPad compartment in the back is perfectly sized for a naked iPad. An iPad in a smart case will fit TIGHTLY but it's a complete hassle to insert and remove. However, I like this bag so much that i've stopped using a case on my iPad (I put a skin on the iPad). Without an iPad case, this bag will hold the iPad and... 4/5 C.

    A Man Purse that Puts Heavy Emphasis on MAN

    I got this bag to carry around my electronics, sunglasses, etc (i.e., a man purse). For being quite compact it actually offers a lot of carry space. In the longer of the two side zip pouches I keep an umbrella. In the smaller side pouch I keep a multi-tool (the Charge TTI), folding reading glasses, a pouch of Nintendo 3DS cartridges, headphones and a pen. In the front zip pouch I have 3 A/C adapters, an external battery power pack, sunglasses (Oakley Pit Boss II), a pouch of screwdriver bits for my multi-tool and Yaktrax cleats (for Winter only). In the tablet pouch I have a 8.9" Kindle HDX and a Nintendo 3DS. Basically, everything I need if I don't need a laptop. Carry capacity is just right for my needs.Aesthetically the Monterey Sling manages to take (almost all of) the purse out of what is clearly a man purse. It has a distinctly masculine feel that is also business appropriate. The quality of the nylon, stitching and hardware is all top notch (as I would... 5/5 Patrick A.
