April 29, 2017
With festival season fast approaching, it’s entirely apposite that we get right into the mood and look ahead to the summer and what better video than this?
Widely regarded as the event that got the modern festival ball rolling, the 1967 Monterey Pop Festival featured stunning performances from the likes of Jimi Hendrix Experience, The Who, Otis Redding and of course Janis Joplin.
Here’s Janis in genuinely spine-tingling mood with a performance that not only stunned the attendees at Monterey, but also one that continues to beguile well into the 21st century.
