The Reviews for Monterey Pop (1968) 1080p

A bit better than WoodstockReviewed byCasey-52Vote: 10/10

I am surprised that only one person has written a review of this movie! Hopefully there will be more written following mine. This movie is where rock festivals all started. Yes, there was the annual Newport Folk Festival that started years before 1967, but this was the real thing! The film has very little footage representing EVERY act (only a few are highlighted), but here's a run-down of the bands:

-The Mamas and the Papas: A classic group, but not the best in concert. Then again, how can you not love Mama Cass and her rapping (no, not that kind!)?

-Canned Heat: Always has been a favorite and is good to see them here.

-Simon and Garfunkel: Like many harmonic groups, they are better on record than they are live.

-Hugh Masekela: I'm surprised this guy made it and Quicksilver Messenger Service and Paul Butterfield Blues Band didn't! He isn't all that good.

-Jefferson Airplane: This band had rare instances where they were great live. This is not one of them, unfortunately. It is pretty nice to see Grace, Marty, and the boys playing, though.

-Big Brother and the Holding Company: One of the highlights! The best performance Janis Joplin ever gave! The underrated band is fabulous, too. But an instrumental bridge of the song is cut out!

-The Animals: I love Eric Burdon and his rough bluesy voice and the band is very good here.

-The Who: Come on now! How did these guys get as popular as they were? They play sloppy and horribly and their voices are bad too. The restored footage of them is unwelcome. Give us some of the unused San Francisco bands!!!

-Country Joe and the Fish: A politically motivated band that rocks live! I can't say I like their records much, but this set of theirs is great.

-Otis Redding: You can't not love Otis here. Another highlight of the show.

-The Jimi Hendrix Experience: Jimi and Janis were the two break-through performances at Monterey and both gave killer sets. Jimi was used more in the film and his guitar-burning act is something that modern-day bands try to copy in vain!

Worth A LookReviewed byphooperVote: 7/10

I was but 9 years old when this event happened but was/am certainly familiar with most of the performers. The DVD has outtake performances. Many are absolutely dismal. Performers who made poor showings include The Byrds (David Crosby drove me nuts), The Mamas and Papas and Al Kooper. Of course the outtakes don't include the complete performance of these performers but the ones on the film are bad. However, I give this package a rating of "7" for a few gems. I'm into harder music for the most part but the biggest surprise for me was the song "Poverty Train" by Laura Nyro. Absolutely incredible. Her backup band was somewhat questionable but her singing performance was incredible. I became an instant fan. Unfortunately she passed away circa 1997 from ovarian cancer :-( Another gem was The Blues Project with their "Flute Thing". Somewhat dated with the flute through a tape echo unit, the musicians were nonetheless capable and the tune was musically interesting. Of course Otis Redding (with Booker T. and the MGs) and Hendrix were great. The one tune by the Electric Flag proved an excellent blues number. Interesting early showing by Mike Bloomfield and Buddy Miles (who later appeared on Band of Gypsys with Hendrix).

And my kids love it. It's worth a look.

With the extended tracks, this is NOT to be missed. FINALLY we get to see the great Quicksilver Messenger Service, Buffalo Springfield, the Entire Who performance, the Entire Hendrix performance, the Entire Otis Redding performance. This was the greatest 3 days of rock and roll and was the birth of the San Fracisco Sound. Love it or hate it. There is no in between. See magic and mysticism. Buy or rent this movie. In-friggen'-credible!

Country Joe and the Fish get an extra song, many backstage and people footage, see Hendrix walking with Brian Jones. Everyone was on the Bear acid, purple gel-tabs and God himself was present.

Even the sell-outs, The mamas and The Papas put on an impressive show. If You Go To San Francisco Be Sure To Wear Some Flowers In Your Hair was written for Scott McKenzie after Papa John Phillips witnessed the magic that was happening.

Don't miss the extended version of the Monteray Pop festival. The weekend rock and roll reached puberty!
