|At 2am on August 30th 1970, The Who appeared on stage at the Isle of Wight Festival in front of an estimated 600,000 people and gave one of the most memorable concerts of their career.|
The show, filmed by Academy Award winning director Murray Lerner, has been restored from the original negative to the highest possible quailty for this Blu-ray release. The sound has been remixed from the original 8 track tapes under the personal supervision of Pete Townshend.
The 85 minute performance is supplemented by a 40 minute interview with Pete Townshend and two tracks cut from the original film.
Editor's NoteThis rock documentary includes the complete concert performance of The Who at the third and final Isle of Wight music festival. Playing to 600,000 ravenous fans on August 30, 1970, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, John Entwistle, and Keith Moon outdid themselves with a towering set. They even went so far as to play the rock opera TOMMY in its entirety, giving audiences yet another reason to shout. Performing classic hits such as "I Can't Explain," "Summertime Blues," "My Generation," "Magic Bus," and many more, The Who further cemented their status as one of rock-and-roll's most thrilling live acts. While that year's Isle of Wight festival was marred by bad planning and even worse execution, there can be no denying the power of The Who's music. Murray Lerner's fascinating documentary captures a definitive moment in rock-and-roll history.
