The Monterey Pop Festival held June 16-18, 1967, put the growing psychedelic rock movement on the map and catapulted the careers of Jimi Hendrix (who set his guitar on fire), The Who, Janis Joplin, and Otis Redding. Big Brother's Combination of The Two wound up on the Cheap Thrills album which was the number 1 album for the year 1968.  Note at the end the video an open-mouthed Mama Cass from the Mamas and the Papas.
