"The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey" offers all existing film footage of the June 18, 1967 epochal performance at The Monterey International Pop Festival presented in its original sequence. The original 16mm camera reversal footage shot by D.A. Pennebaker's Monterey Pop film crew has been transferred to high-definition specs and is presented in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The DVD soundtrack features new 5.1 surround and 2.0 stereo mixes by Eddie Kramer, the engineer so closely associated with the Jimi Hendrix and his legacy, from the original eight-track live recordings made at the concert by remote engineer Wally Heider.

Beyond the performance of the band's set, "The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey" offers numerous bonus features. "A Second Look", a unique interactive feature allows the viewer to switch between multiple, previously unseen camera angles to view several of the performances as never before. In addition, "American Landing", a new documentary that includes previously unreleased interviews with Mitchell and Redding — and Jimi Hendrix himself — is included. There's also "Music, Love and Flowers", an inside look at the Monterey International Pop Festival with co-founder Lou Adler. Live performances of "Stone Free" and "Like A Rolling Stone", the two earliest known unreleased JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE performances, shot February 25, 1967 at Chelmsford, England are also part of the package.

Voluminous liner notes by Mitch Mitchell and Hendrix scholar and Experience Hendrix's catalog development director John McDermott, as well as numerous rare and previously unpublished photos of Hendrix, the band and memorabilia of the time are also part of the lavish package that is "The Jimi Hendrix Experience Live At Monterey".
