best version of monterey
By Rodolfo Cruz
i have the criterion dvd and this blu-ray isnt much different in the video department. audiowise they are both very sweet and hard to choose... but this version has the extra footage as a bonus special featute.. it was fun seeing the show again froma different viewpoint.
the concert is edited slightly different and is mostly the same but i found it refreshing. also included is all the avialble footage of purple haze. can you see me is still missing.
menus are very cool with jimis burning guitar. on criterion you have to switch between otis and hendrix and the menu looks like recycled tree paper. you also have to but the 3 disc version to get some monterey history.. this blu-ray has a small doc on monterey if your interested then you can get criterion version of that.

Buy this DVD TODAY!
By Stan Koehne
Do yourself a huge favor and buy this DVD TODAY!
It was Hendrix' first concert in the States upon returning from London after the Vietnam war.
The sound is great and the film is good, considering it was filmed in 68.
Absolutely a must for any Hendrix fan or even a non Hendrix fan (if there is such a thing).

worth have it
Awesome Jimi first concert on Monterrey Music Festival. The footage is pretty raw, like amateur VHS but sounds great.
