"Monterey International Pop Festival" Otis Redding - The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967)

"Monterey International Pop Festival" Otis Redding - The Jimi Hendrix Experience (1967): Hi Everybody, can you imagine Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding on the same record? Yes? so you know already these incredible performance in Monterey (1967). These two shows entered the legend, with Jimi sacrifying his guitar, and Otis for his fabulous version of "I've been loving you too long". This disc should be reimbursed by mutual health (not sure of the traduction, you can correct it please...) Enjoy that viny rip!!! - Magic Kaic's MusicHistorically, what's happening is two radically different black artists showboating at the nativity of the new white rock audience. Both have performed more subtly and more brilliantly, even on live albums (Live in Europe, the first side of Band of Gypsys), and maybe I'm nostalgic. But while at the time I admired Redding ("the love crowd" pegged that audience perfectly) and was appalled by Hendrix ("a psychedelic Uncle Tom," I called him, and that's one of the dozens of things he was), in retrospect they seem equally audacious and equally wonderful. As evocative a distillation of the hippie moment in all its hope and contradiction as you'll ever hear. - Robert ChristgauLine-up / Musicians
