Assuming this DVD is a video version of the vinyl album I bought (and still have) it can't be anything less than 5 stars. I've been looking for a CD/DVD/any version of this for years.

HASH(0xb8e0fa20) out of 5 stars Brief but wonderful performances by 2 of the best Dec 28 2012
By M. Oleson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
I picked up this Criterion Blu ray recently never having seen it before. Well, I guess I did see the Complete Monterey Pop Festival which includes these performances. This is about as good as I've seen Hendricks who was 24 at the time. He was trying to best "The Who" and Pete Townshend's guitar smashing, so Jimi lights his guitar on fire...then smashes it... in front of some stunned (or just stoned) fans. Musically he was hot. "Purple Haze" and "Foxy Lady" were chart smashes and he sizzles here. The concert runs 49 minutes which includes an opening "art" sequence as well as a couple earlier London appearances.

Otis Redding was 25 and was changing soul music by making it hipper and more relevant to the newer generation. Same theme but with a more upbeat rhythm or else sultry and romantic. He hits the target with this 19 minute set including "I've Been Loving You Too Long" and the great "Try a Little Tenderness." Redding and most of his band died in a plane crash 6 months after this concert. Hendricks lived another 3 years. The Blu ray disc shows the age of the original print. It comes with a 1.37:1 aspect ratio and is shown in 1080p. It is certainly watchable, especially the close ups but don't expect reference material. The audio is very good with a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 option along with Dolby Digital 2.0. There are optional audio commentaries and a couple interviews.

HASH(0xb8e0faec) out of 5 stars DVD option Feb. 6 2013
By Jrum C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray
As 'fyi', this release is also available as a dvd, though the blu listing does not indicate as much. This dvd whet my appetite to extent that I soon ordered single blu disc of Monterey Pop, which has original film PLUS extras. So $7.50 for Jimi and Otis dvd Jimi Plays Monterey / Shake! Otis at Monterey (The Criterion Collection), $16 for rest of festival on blu Monterey Pop (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray] (Single Disc) = entire set for $23.50 (used copies, but still very pleased!). The dvd was my first foray into festival, and given age/'67 technology, -but Criterion restore- believe dvd is most sufficient! NOTE: in 'Jimi' portion of dvd, was initially a bit 'disconcerted' (pun intended) that it starts with approx 11 min prologue, including killer artiste, John Phillips' narrative of Hendrix' rise to fame up to Monterey (and American) debut, and several live audio/video clips of earlier work ('Can You See Me?' works nicely with painting). A second watch improved my appreciation for intro approach, but Jimi concert footage then runs (only) 36 fantastic minutes. 'Otis' portion is brief (19 min) but stellar, and has as extra an interesting 18 min. interview with his manager, Phil Walden. A most worthy Criterion release, and now looking forward to viewing rest of filmed festival!

HASH(0xb8e0ff24) out of 5 stars The Wind Cries Mary... Jan. 2 2012
By Dr. Morbius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Two of the greatest performers ever....We would lose them both a few short years later, but these performances live on Criterion blu-ray looking and especially sounding better that ever. The 5.1 sound is really incredible, you just have to hear it to believe it. The video is slightly grainy as to be expected, but no matter- with performances like these you can't fault this disc. I would recommend getting the Complete Monterey Pop Festival which has all this and more. Great stuff.
HASH(0xb8e0ff0c) out of 5 stars Classic Performance June 2 2014
By Adam Silvia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Jimi Hendrix live at the Monterrey looks great on blu-ray with extremely clear colors and the sound is great with no static or distractions. This set by The Criterion Collection has two audio commentaries by music critic Peter Guralnick and a bonus booklet with an essay by music critic David Fricke. This is the concert where Jimi lights his guitar on fire, and smashes it.

HASH(0xb8e102d8) out of 5 stars I bought this Blu ray, and was excited to ... March 24 2015
By Ahmed Riad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
I bought this Blu ray, and was excited to watch Hendrix legendary appearance. However, when I put it in my Blu Ray/DVD player a note came out saying that this Blu Ray can't be played cuz the Blu Ray system is unrecognizable!!! My DVD Blu Ray Sony is a high standard one and it should work on all system. I really can't understand why their should be "different" "USA" only types of sysyem. Cpme on, guys, the world is a global village now, and it is irrelevant to have different DVD/Blu Ray systems>
As for me, I'm just gonna go to my friends and find a DVD that can understand the different types!!!
