In 1967, during the so-called ‘Summer Of Love’, 200,000 fans gathered on the Pacific Coast in California for a three day music festival and enjoyed performances from The Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, The Mamas And The Papas, The Byrds and Jefferson Airplane, to name but five.

  1. Randy Otto says:

    This was originally released by Rhino in 1992 to celebrate the event’s 35th anniversary. It came in a 12 x 12 box coated in yellow vinyl with a book of the same size. It appears all that set’s original tracks are collected here (as any Simon & Garfunkel tracks are conspicuously absent), and apparently the 88 page booklet would duplicate the original set’s contents! And the price is much less than the ’92 release!

  2. Lee says:

    Not as smart as the 12×12″ box version issued back in the mid 90s, but that was far more expensive. Since I missed that, I’ll almost certainly get this – it’s a snip at £15, even though it includes far too much Mamas & Papas.

    • Scott says:

      There is no such thing as “too much Mamas & Papas.” :-)

      However, I will admit that their tracks from Monterey were horribly recorded.
