Aroview: In 1967 the acclaimed documentary maker D.A. Pennebaker recorded performances at the Monterey Pop Festival, California.

This historically-important footage was later to prove the basis of 3 classic films - Monterey Pop, Jimi Plays Monterey, Shake! Otis at Monterey - capturing the hippie vibes of the 'Summer of Love' at their spiritual height. This DVD set contains all three films (available over two discs), as well as over two hours of previously unreleased footage of the event on an extra disc.

Monterey Pop (79 min.) - Includes performances by Janis Joplin, The Who, Simon and Garfunkle, Jimi Hendrix and many others.

Jimi Plays Monterey (49 min.) / Shake! Otis at Monterey (19 min.) - Sets by Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding.

Monterey Pop: The Outtake Performances (123 min.) - Bonus footage.
