Editorial Reviews

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.

Special Features:
* High-Definition Digital Transfers
* Soundtrack - 5.1 Mixes by legendary recording Engineer Eddie Kramer * Audio Commentaries by Charles Shaar Murray and Peter Guralnick
* Excerpt from an interview with Pete Townshend
* Interview with Phil Walden

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.

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!

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.

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.
