Today In History
June 17 2014 @ 3:49 pm

The legendary Monterey Pop Festival performance occurred on June 17, 1967! Director Sean Durkin describes the "Ball 'n' Chain" scene in D.A. Pennebaker's documentary Monterey Pop for the Criterion Collection





"The performance is so intense that you almost crave a break.The film cuts to Mama Cass, mouth agape, staring up in disbelief. This iconicshot of Cass solidifies my emotion - I'm not the only one feeling this way. Themoment in time that Pennebaker captures is what most consider to be the arrivalof Janis Joplin. And as the song finishes, we see why." #JuneIsForJanis
