Jimi Hendrix / Otis Redding – Monterry Pop Festival sealed original withdrawn 1970 LP

A sealed first pressing of the Jimi Hendrix / Otis Redding LP Monterey International Pop Festival with the original withdrawn cover.


Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the 1970 Jimi Hendrix/Otis Redding LP Monterey International Pop Festival featuring the original withdrawn cover.

In mid-1970, Reprise Records was getting a bit impatient with Jimi Hendrix, as they hadn’t received a new album from him in quite a while and they were eager to release something new.  With no new Hendrix album in hand, Reprise released an album of material from the Monterey International Pop Festival, recorded in June of 1967, featuring Jimi Hendrix on one side and Otis Redding on the other.

The timing was perfect from a sales perspective; the album hit the store shelves just three weeks before Jimi’s untimely death and reached #15 on the charts.

The original cover art featured artwork from the posters used to promote the Monterey International Pop Festival.  Due to legal threats from the promoters of the festival, this cover was withdrawn shortly after release and replaced with another one that featured multiple photos of Hendrix and Redding. (see photos for example)

About this copy: This copy of Monterey International Pop Festival is an original, still sealed copy featuring the original withdrawn cover.  As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed.

Unlike most copies we’ve seen, this copy does not have a cutout hole.  The shrink wrap is 100% intact, with no rips, tears or holes.  It’s the nicest copy we’ve ever seen and will likely be your final upgrade.

A beautiful copy of a terrific album.
