5.0 out of 5 stars Great cleaned-up version!!! Dec 7 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I had this on video tape and watched it hundreds of times. I recently transferred it to DVD and watched it another dozen times. I waited to buy this because I couldn't find any reviews about the picture and sound quality. I finally bought it and am glad I did. They did a fantastic job on the transfer. The picture is 1000% better than my old video tape or the DVD I made from it. They say they removed thousands of dust marks from the picture. The black background is actually black. The colors are nice and bright.

The sound is great. I don't have a 5.1 system yet, but I will soon. This will probably be the first DVD I try in it. It sounds so good on stereo, that I can't even imaging it sounding better.

Very impressive upgrade from previous versions.

The concert speaks for itself. It is a classic. This is my favorite Hendrix concert video by far. The songs are great and the performance is mind-blowing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The career perfornances of 2 legandary artists June 18 2006
By Michael Wheeler - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a Jimi Hendrix fan since the mid 60's and have bought everything I could get my hands on by Jimi Hendrix.
I have had the VHS tape and the vinyl copy of Monterey.
The vinyl recording was very good as was the VHS tape. Finally its out on DVD.
There is nothing new here that has not been released before. Jimi Hendrix collectors like myself have to have it on DVD as well though. This of course is the performance that started it all. This concert is legandary to say the least. Jimi pulls out all of the stops. You will never find a better performance by Jimi Hendrix anywhere else.
What does set this apart is the Otis Redding performance. Otis does Shake along with I've been Loving you too long, Satisfaction and Try a little Tenderness.
There is also an interview by Pete Townshend as he recollects the festival and the legandary coin toss to see who performs first and who has to go on last. John Phillips gave his account and Townshend's acount is a little different. Townshend says the late Brian Jones actually tossed the coin. I guess we will never really know for sure who did.
This is a worthy addition to any collection........enjoy

5.0 out of 5 stars Originally an LP back in the Day Oct. 26 2007
By John P. Roth - Published on Amazon.com
I wore out the record of this match up in the early seventies.
This year was the 40th anniversary of this version of Monterey Pop
Festival, and these two artists definately left a permanent impression
on the music scene of that day. Otis Redding was one of the most vibrant
and powerful singers ever; and this recording; along with back-up bandmates Booker T & the MG's (feat. Donald "Duck" Dunn and Steve Cropper
of Blues Bros. fame) was one of the best live sets ever filmed.

Jimi's performance was nothing short of spectacular as He wowed
the crowd with guitar work few had ever seen until this day-

I heartily recommend this concert dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars The ultimate rock performance - Jimi plays Monterey July 13 2007
By Dr GB Dennill - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
When Jimi Hendrix burst onto the rock scene in the UK he had the likes of Eric Clapton in utter dismay while he received adulation from Pete Townsend, The Rolling Stones & The Beatles, to mention but a few. The Who refused to play after him at Monterey, because he was, at any venue, an impossible act to follow. If you want to know why, you must buy 'Jimi plays Monterey' (you get Otis Redding's performance there as a bonus, as well as a brilliant, informative commentary that guides you through the movie). Since the late 60's Jimi has been my number one rock artist, and this is his number one performance. The disc has been remastered in every respect; both sound and visuals are utterly superb.
5.0 out of 5 stars when the music scene was so damn good - that was thankfully captured on film Aug. 16 2014
By dixxiedoll1 - Published on Amazon.com

This was a magical time in the history of music - at least for us Boomers- especially for me, who grew up in Berkeley in the 60's, when the music scene was so damn good - that was thankfully captured on film. I had the vinyl back in the day, but it vanished somewhere along the line. So I started doing a search for a CD of this album, and was not able to find one - only vinyl and this DVD. So I opted for the DVD, as the visual is so much a part of the whole experience. I realised a few minutes into it that I have seen this before - on more than one occasion, on TV channels like PBS or VH1 Classics, once in a blue moon. So I jumped on it!!! And I will not ever regret it!!! The individual performances themselves are phenominal, when you stop to really think about it! I mean, this was Jimi Hendrix & The Experience's first ever U.S. appearance, after Jimi came back from his time in the U.K. And then there's Otis Redding, who was playing for the very first time to this type of audience - and he grabbed it and ran with it all the way past the goal post - and was greeted with open hearts! In my personal opinion, these are two of the best performances by some of the best musicians of our generation. Of course, we can't leave out "Bob Dylan's grandmother" and Noel Redding, not to mention Booker T. and the MG's backing up Otis Redding, along with the Mar-keys' solid horn section! And I, for one, am so grateful and thrilled to have these precious recordings in my possession once again.!!! PS - the commentaries are fabulous, as well, because each song is looked at individually, with all the special stories that go along with each one. Then additional interviews shed even more light on a very special time in the history of music. I highly recommend this DVD!!!!! And the vinyl, as well. Thank you!!!
