The historical festival is forever young on DVD, and the format allows for tons of archival footage... and what's better than new stuff?

Plays today like a dry run for 1970's Woodstock and Gimme Shelter, without the epic scope of the former or the Dionysian drama of the latter.

Next to Woodstock, this is an excellent glimpse into the sixties and the musical experience, with great performances from rock legends.

... a concert film as a cinema vérité documentary, a little shaggy, a little low-fi, up close and intimate and very much in tune with the audience basking in the joy of the music...

...a beatific 79-minute document that set out to catch the look, the feel, and especially the sounds of a seminal moment in American popular culture.

Woodstock is more famous, Altamont more notorious, but the June 1967 Monterey Pop Festival was the first great coming together of the tribes of the rock 'n' roll generation.

The film possesses a quality of nostalgia beyond the fact that it was made way back in 1967.

It is possible that the way to a new kind of musical -- using some of the talent and energy of what is still the most lively contemporary medium -- may begin with just this kind of musical performance documentary.

From that mix of cultural revolution, undeniable talent, and stage-managed hype came Monterey Pop, the first in a cycle of widely-released, mass-audience 'rockumentaries.'
