At the extreme right is one of the cameramen on the Pennybaker crew. Another Pennybaker camera operator can be seen at the foot of the stage. Notice his large 1,000 foot rolls of 16mm film. Also notice the cameramen on the roof opposite.

Wonderful photos of the Monetery Pop Festival, Bryan! Very informative to an amateur historian like myself. I see that you took many shots onstage the afternoon of Saturday, June 17, and I'm hoping that you have a few of the Electric Flag who played last that day. I host a website dedicated to Michael Bloomfield, and I'd love to see anything you have of them. By the way, the unknown band in the wide-angle shots is the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, and I believe Jerry Garcia can be seen walking by in one of your backstage shots. Thanks, David D.
