Jimi Plays Monterey: Audio Commentary By Music Critic And Historian Charles Shaar Murray, Excerpt From Interview With Pete Townshend, Trailer
Shake! Otis At Monterey: Two Audio Commentaries by Music Critic And Historian Peter Guralnick On Otis Redding's Monterey Performance (Song-By-Song) And On Redding Before And After Monterey, Interview With Phil Walden (Redding's Manager From 1959 to 1967)
Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding arrived in California virtually unknown. Returning stateside from London, where he had moved to launch his musical career, Hendrix exploded at Monterey, flooring an unsuspecting audience with his maniacal six-string pyrotechnics. Redding, venerable star of Memphis' Stax record label, seduced the "love crowd" in one of his best-- and last-- performances. Jimi Plays Monterey and Shake! Otis at Monterey feature the entire Monterey sets of these legendary musicians, performances that have entered rock-and-roll mythology.
The Monterey Pop Festival perfectly embodied the spirit of 1967--the "summer of love"--and permanently changed the landscape of rock music. Two of the standout performances from that groundbreaking concert are collected here: the 18-minute SHAKE! OTIS AT MONTEREY, which memorably launched Otis Redding's career, and the remarkable 50-minute tour-de-force JIMI PLAYS MONTEREY, which introduced Jimi Hendrix to the world.
