Welcome to Episode 003 - Part 3 (The Monterey Pop Festival Episode) of our three part journey through the charts of music that was popular the weeks that parallel the three festivals we think had a significant impact on either the musical or cultural impact - or both - during the first 30 years of the rock and roll era.
In this episode, we review the music that was popular on the Billboard charts the week of the most important Music Festival during the rock and roll era. No concert prior to or since that event represented the pulse of music at the moment and what was to come . . . something that was only hinted at that week on the Billboard charts.
The concert introduced a larger audience to Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, and Janis Joplin. It officially kicked off The Summer of Love just up the coast in San Francisco.

Come with us back to the middle of June, 1967, and be thankful your ears work when you hear the music of this era.
