Otis Redding & Jimi Hendrix Experience 'Live at Monterey Pop Festival'
have you ever heard this LP? this record is suuuper good. i rarely listen to the Hendrix side, as great as it is.. .. Redding just kills it in this performance.. .the last act on Saturday night of the Monterey Pop Fest in 1967. they went on about midnight, with Booker T and the MGs and the MarKeys as his backing band. they knock out 5 songs in a touch over 15 minutes, and each is real exciting and real tight.
i still remember the first time i saw video of this performance. all of the footage i have seen has these weird crowd shots all though-out "Try a Little Tenderness" . .. which sorta bums me out because its such a great performance. but check out this video of "I've Been Loving You Too Long" .. . so good! he also does "Satisfaction" here,. .. probably the best that song has ever been:
alright. back to it.
