Both of these music films are staples on late-night TV, both are rarely seen in the cinema where they look (and sound) their best. Of the two Montery Pop is the better shot; DA Pennebacker capturing the legendary Californian music festival with aplomb, serving up a slice of sixties counterculture that helped bring Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding to international recognition.

The Stones in the Park is rawer. Just days after Brian Jones’ death this ramshackle, heart-breaking free concert was filmed right from the side of the stage. It’s at turns underwhelming, bathetic, honest and beautiful – like watching a man on a tightrope. Both great in their own way, both made for a cinema veiwing.
