I had the good fortune of speaking with the late, great photographer Jim Marshall in San Francisco during production of one of my books; he was instrumental in our securing permission to use the Rolling Stone magazine cover of Tanya Tucker in Dream Reachers.

It was with great sadness I learned of his passing in March, so I wrote a memorial about Jim for the Dames of Dialogue blog. I shared some intimate stories about him that were passed on to me by actress Jenny McShane who knew Jim personally.

I knew of him through his awesome photography that captured rock-and-roll legends, including the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones, Janis Joplin, Mamas and the Papas and many others...at work and in repose. I'm impressed that Marshall was the only photographer granted backstage access at what turned out to be the final Beatles concert at San Francisco's Candlestick Park in 1966. Good timing and his rapport with musicians also helped him catch Johnny Cash memorably "flipping the bird" at a 1969 performance at San Quentin Prison.

I had always wanted to acquire a copy of Monterey Pop by this legendary "Godfather of Rock Photography," so I finally did it in his memory; better late than never. The photos in this book were taken at the famous Monterey Pop Festival, of course. Those photos and his ones from Woodstock will always be my favorites. I'm glad Marshall got around to presenting his works in book format, making them accessible to more people.

Really feels like, well, he was there. Nice size tho I'd probably have preferred it full 11 x 14 or so to get a sorta poster feel for some photos. Only about just over a third of the photos are in color. Only about 10% of the photos are full page. I prefer full page or so if I can get it for my favorite photo book subjects such as Frank Lloyd Wright picture books of his building or Jimi photo books. The written content is interesting and informative about the Monterey Pop festival. I'm glad I bought the book. I actually worked, simultanously with two people who were both there. One said she was too stoned to remember it. I never did question either about the experience. I just met another guy who was there. Gotta learn more from him. A guy from church! Being a Jimi fan/freak, I love this festival because it was his instantaneous coming out party to the U.S. audience. He'd already flabbergasted the British and some French and Scandinavians. Now, America could embrace his unique awesomeness. And we did for the brief time his flame was lit. God bless.

Format: Paperback
An amazing photo and text history of perhaps the finest rock concert of all-time (maybe not as well known as Woodstock, but surely as influential)... This book is now out of print and has become quite a sought after item among serious rock music enthusiasts...
