Reprise Records issues the LP Historic Performances Recorded At The Monterey International Pop Festival (MS 2029), which features the unique pairing of Jimi Hendrix and Otis Redding from the 1967 event. Hendrix’s involvement on the release came in the form of recordings of “Like A Rolling Stone,” “Rock Me Baby,” “Can You See Me,” and the incendiary “Wild Thing.” This album marked the very last recordings of Jimi Hendrix to be released during his lifetime.
