On This Day June 16th in Rock & Roll History

On this day June 16, 1967 the first Monterey Pop Festival begins with numerous rock legends like Jefferson Airplane and the Mamas and Papas. Papa John Phillips would later write a song inspired by this legendary concert. It wouldn’t be a hit for him but it would be for one-hit-wonder Scott McKenzie with the classic “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair).” The 45 is not a big collectible at up to $10.00. However, Jefferson Airplane is another story. Their album “Jefferson Airplane Takes Off” released by RCA in 1967 can sell for $50.00 if the album has 11 tracks. BUT, if the album has 12 tracks the value jumps up to $500.00 in mono and $700.00 in stereo.
