Young Jimi Hendrix was already a star in the U.K. but playing at Monterey made him a star in the U.S. In 1967 Jimi Hendrix had only one album out, Jimi had yet to be a star in his home country. The Monterey Pop Festival made Jimi a legend. This concert is a piece of music history! The remastered recording sounds very good considering it is 1967. Here is the tracklist: 01.Introduction 02.Killing Floor-Howlin' Wolf Cover 03.Foxey Lady 04.Like A Rolling Stone- Bob Dylan Cover 05.Rock Me Babey-B.B. King Cover 06.Hey Joe 07.Can You See Me 08.Wind Cries Mary 09.Purple Haze 10.Wild Thing-Troggs Cover With this CD we can experience the energy of Jimi live!

If you listen to Jimi and concentrate on his singing and The Lyrics, you should never be allowed to listen to music again. Jimi does his singing with his guitar! Get that through your head! Jimi plays some shibby solos especially Hey Joe(which he plays with his teeth) Enough said.
Overall Impression — 9
This is a very good live album with high energy all the way through. This also has five great covers if you have all of his studio albums. My track picks are "Like a Rolling Stone" "Rock Me Babey" "Hey Joe". There is also the famous ending of Jimi lighting his guitar on fire and smashing it, you can hear all the sounds, but it would be better to watch on video and that is the only down side. Hendrix fans buy this album.
