These concert-film landmarks capture two electrifying live shows that ushered Memphis soul star Otis Redding and little-known guitar virtuoso Jimi Hendrix into the annals of rock ‘n’ roll mythology. Both musicians lose themselves in the passion of performing, conquering the hippie audience at the now-legendary 1967 Monterey Pop Festival. Highlights include Hendrix’s tongue-wagging, guitar-smashing “Wild Thing” and Redding’s cathartic rendition of “I’ve Been Loving You Too Long.”
