Produced from out-takes of Pennebaker's Monterey Pop, Jimi Plays Monterey is not so much a trip down memory lane as a rocket ship ride to the '60's. June 1967. The Summer of Love. Here is Jimi Hendrix making some of the best and wildest rock-n-roll music: yellow ruffles down his chest, a purple feather boa around his neck, face aglow, playing "Foxey Lady," "Purple Haze," and "Like a Rolling Stone" to thousands of adoring fans. In less than an hour we are transported to an ear when "to be young was very heaven."
