During the Summer of Love, 1967, the first and only Monterey International Pop Festival ushered in a new era of rock and roll. The festival would launch the careers of Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding, but they were just a few among a diverse cast that included Simon and Garfunkel, Hugh Masekela, The Mamas and the Papas, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burden and the Animals, and The Who. Director, D.A. Pennebaker captured the decade's spirit during the three day festival in his acclaimed documentary entitled "Monterey Pop" and immortalized moments that have become legend.
