Monterey International Pop Festival is a box set of four CDs containing 70 tracks from the festival on June 16 to 18, 1967 covering many different artists including Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, The Byrds, The Mamas and The Papas and others.
There is also a two CD version with 26 tracks but, if you get that, I suspect you will keep wishing that you’ve spent a little more for this one and bought the newly released tracks on mp3.
