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.

    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. 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.

    A truly feel good story, with inspirational characters

    The Death and Life of Monterey Bay: A Story of Revival - Hardcover (Nov. 12, 2010) by Dr. Stephen R Palumbi PhD and Ms. Carolyn Sotka M.A.As a resident of the Monterey Bay, I found this a book I couldn't put down. I think anyone who lives in California, is fascinated by ocean economics, loves the read the lives of interesting characters or is intrigued by our history will find this book compelling.This history of the last 250 years of the Monterey Bay is an environmental story, and as such, it's also a human story. The authors, as they trace the damage done to this fecund part of the ocean and it's revival, also, of necessity, trace the lives of the people who have been instrumental in the changes, both positive and negative.Starting with the Spanish exploration of California, when people first realized what an economic treasure resided under the bay, to today's world of ecotourism, the authors give us insights into the lives and activities of both... 5/5 Meade Fischer (Santa Cruz county, CA) - See all my reviews, February 28, 2011

    Glass half full in Monterey Bay

    Loving nature can be exhausting. Constantly crises arise, reminding us of our ecological footprint, the impacts of what we eat and how much we drive. It can make a person crazy with guilt. This book is a refreshing perspective on environmental crises past, and the resilience of the amazing ecosystem of Monterey Bay. The authors count the impacts of the decimation of the otter population in the early 1800s, which caused a domino effect where the boom of otter prey items such as abalone and sea urchin munched the kelp forest down to nubs. They follow the impacts of harvest of whales, abalones, sardines, and bird eggs. Palumbi, one of those polymath ecology geniuses, describes how abalone larval recruitment and whale population biology are keys to these changes.The local history is folded in to the ecology of the bay, with the fabulous story of 1930s Pacific Grove mayor and PhD marine biologist Julia Platt who shot chickens invading her garden and protected the Hopkins... 4/5 S - See all my reviews This review is from: The Death and Life of Monterey Bay: A Story of Revival (Hardcover) Loving nature can be exhausting.

    A Compelling Story of the Death and Rebirth of Monterey Bay

    I had the privilege of attending a day-long seminar at Hopkins Marine Station last year, sponsored by the Stanford Continuing Studies program (Stanford owns the Marine Station). Dr. Palumbi was the keynote speaker and gave a short intro into the cycle of death in rebirth in Monterey Bay, and I was motivated to read more about it. I have been visiting the area since the early 1970's, at which time the area was still suffering economically and ecologically from the collapse of the sardine fishing industry. 1964 was the last year of canning, and cannery row was still a waste land of crumbling, boarded up buildings behind chain link fence.This short book recounts the relatively quick collapse of the Bay ecosystem when humans disrupted the normal cycle. Julie Platt, former mayor of Pacific Grove, had a marine biology degree and could see how badly the bay had declined and knew that human activity was the cause of the decay. She fought tirelessly and sometimes ruthlessly to... 5/5 Jill Clardy (Redwood City, CA USA) - See all my reviews, July 4, 2013
