Unjustly shadowed by Hendrix
19 June 2005 | by (Vancouver) – See all my reviews

During the Monterey Festival, D.A. Pennebaker shot the whole festival, and then released 2 special films focusing on 2 artists, one is Jimi Hendrix (which I've also reviewed) and the other is Otis Rettig. Let me just pause here and say I knew NOTHING about Otis when I watched this (he wrote Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay, right?) and while I STILL don't know much about him, I sure got to see him perform! It's interesting to see that this film by Pennebaker gets higher ratings by the people who have seen it, and I agree, because this guy puts on a SHOW that even I was amazed by. Full of great soul numbers and surprise inclusions (Satisfaction and Respect get great covers) the man doesn't care if it's pouring rain out (which it was) or if it was 1:00a (ditto) all his energy went into this performance, and it truly is a sight to behold.
