Jimi Hendrix – Live at Monterey CD/DVD (2007)

Share this:

A bunch of cameras followed Jimi Hendrix around the festival in question — which was the debut of the Jimi Hendrix Experience in the US — filming not only his performance but also a documentary about the man himself and the festival. This DVD included all of this, plus some previously unreleased interviews with Mitch Mitchell and Noel Redding, and two songs (“Stone Free” and “Like A Rolling Stone”) from an earlier performance in England. However, the CD also featured one song not on the DVD, “Can You See Me,” as, somehow, that did not get filmed. But, the CD lacks the extra two songs the DVD has. See how they get you here? If you’re a Hendrix nut, you kinda gotta buy both, and at a mere 42 minutes for the CD, there’s really no excuse for this — those extra songs should have been on the CD, or “Can You See Me” on the DVD in some form.
