Baby Boomer Fun: The Mamas and the Papas, 1967, and The Summer of Love


Thursday is baby boomer day, no real estate, so here we go...

It was 40 years ago that America experienced "the summer of love", which was the media name for a cultural shift towards youth. The name has stayed with us.

One needs to look no farther than the famous cover to The Beatle's 1967 Sgt Pepper album to visually see that change. Viet Nam, free love, hippies, be-ins, Haight-Ashbury, Jimi Hendrix, Timothy Leary, LBJ....

This week's video clip is from The Monterey Pop Festival held in June of 1967. Monterey is sometimes called the world's first major rock festival, and the inaugural event was attended by more than 200,000 people.

Featured here are San Francisco icons, The Mamas and the Papas, with a live performance of Monday, Monday.

PLEASE NOTE: Videos do disappear from the web from time to time. If this video should become unavailable, then find more Mamas and Papas performances at this location.

ENJOY ! 4 mins 50 seconds.
