The book has introductions by Lou Adler and Derek Taylor, and covers the whole three days of events, with rare and candid pictures in each section. If you are a fan of genuine 'pop' and 'sixties underground', you will enjoy the close up sharp photos of such personalities as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Ravi Shankar, Jefferson Airplane, The Who, Mamas and Papas, Country Joe and the Fish, along with Otis Redding, Simon and Garfunkel,Paul Butterfield Band, Steve Miller Band, Canned Heat, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and many more that appeared on that special weekend in music history.
This 190 page book is beautifully printed in full color and also includes original artwork and posters by Tom Wilkes used in the Festival. Well worth the money for a keepsake book that immediately transports the reader back in time to that psychedelic, carefree era.
But again reading about what this book included re. "filled with color picture's". Colored pictures! They are very few & far between, one has to hunt to find even a few.
I am not taking away one single shot, they're a great testament that to me are timeless. Especially heady are the quote's from members of Country Joe & the Fish.
I will treasure these images untill my rocking-chair day's, but for heaven's sake, don't publicize a book with the declaimer,"filled with color photographs".
Was this the last concert with folding chairs?
I gave this book to a friend of mine that had attended Monterey Pop and she cried as she recalled the days of peace, love and rock & roll.
