The Who

Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 (2CD+DVD)

Cat. No.: SALVOSVX007
Barcode: 698458060723
Playing Time: CD - 112mins DVD - 85mins
LC Code: LC12303

At 2am on Sunday August 30th 1970, one of the great British rock bands gave one of the most memorable concerts of their career. Academy Award(R) winning director Murray Lerner was there to capture this superb performance for posterity. For the first time we present The Who Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 on both CD and DVD in the same package. Includes 12-page booklet.

 

REVIEWS

"A spetacular concert, featuring the hits I Can’t Explain and I’m a Boy, large portions of their classic rock opera Tommy and some lesser-known songs like Amazing Journey and Water, the IOW performance runs to 30 songs and 112 minutes. All are now restored to the highest quality in mixes supervised by Pete Townshend as part of a three disc Sound & Vision set, which features an expanded film version of the concert, including performances of Substitute and Naked Eye omitted from the original movie releases."

Music Week

 

"A savage energy drives Young Man Blues and My Generation and Keith Moon’s drums are the musical equivalent of hyper-ventilation. They ensure that otherwise lacklustre versions of Magic Bus and I Can’t Explain still teeter on the brink of collapse. It was a year of live triumphs for them - their famous Live At Leeds show was six months earlier, but as a visual document of The Who at the gnarliest, this is unsurpassed."

4/5
Paul Moody
Q

 

"This set from the Isle of Wight knees-up, following on from Live At Leeds and the recently issued Live At Hull, freezes them in their quintessential pose: furiously windmilling guitarist, bare-chested singer with shaggy curls, manic drummer and implacable bassist in skeleton suit. The music itself is immense. Not least a seismic rendition of Mose Allison’s Young Man Blues that arguably edges out the ...Leeds version for sheer thrills. Even the new stuff, namely Lifehouse intended tunes like Water and I Don’t Even Know Myself, the latter with a curiously countrified middle-eight, sound gloriously intact rather than mere works-in-progress. The entire tun at Tommy is here too, while perhaps the greatest moment is My Generation, an explosive electrified wigout as epic as it is fierce. This audio-visual treat may be the umpteenth repackage of The Who at IOW, but it could well prove to be the definitive one."

9/10
Rob Hughes
Uncut

 

"The Isle of Wight set is almost entirely made up of songs from 1969’s Tommy, the album that signalled their switch from one of Britain’s premier singles acts to one of its biggest album-based rock bands. (...) Unreleased bonus are unseen footage of Substitute and a great performance of the quiet/loud Naked Eye - a terrific song that was shelved
until the mid-1970s Odds & Sods compilations."

Bob Stanley
The Times

 

"Beyond the hightlights of Tommy, there are venomous charges through hits (I Can’t Explain, Substitute), high-octane covers (Shakin’ All Over, Twist and Shout) and daring previews of material intended for Townshend’s next, ultimately abandoned major opus, Lighthouse. An irrefutably important stage in the ongoing evolution of the band, this film sets out The Who’s ambitious  blueprint for the next few years."

4/5
Terry Staunton
Music Week

 

"Its centrepiece, edited to half an hour here, is a pause-free run through Tommy, driven by Daltrey’s leonine drama and Townshend’s granite powerchords, bookended with blustery covers, tracks destined for the ill-fated Lifehouse album and hits like My Generation and Magic Bus billowing into proto-Zep behemoths."

8/10
Mark Beaumont
Classic Rock

 

"The Who’s classic Isle of Wight performance includes Tommy as well as such classics as I Can’t Explain, Substitute and Magic Bus (...). As with the Who’s performance the band has rarely sounded better, especially on cuts from the chart-topping Stand Up LP."

Choice Magazine

 

"The Who were at the height of their powers as a live band around 1970, and this is a perfect showcase of their finest moments. (...) You cannot fault the explosive nature of the band as they rampage through classics like My Generation, I Can’t Explain, Magic Bus and the entire rock opera Tommy."

4/5
Dave Esson
Daily Express Scotland

 

"The Who’s inimitable brand of joyous aggression is showcased brilliantly in this DVD and double-CD package that recalls a momentous performance in front of about 600,000 people. (...) Vintage songs delivered in the course of an exuberant barrage include I Can’t Explain, Substitute, My Generation, Magic Bus and Pinball Wizard - the latter as part of
a thoroughly committed Tommy sequence. The set list also presents an unusual medley incorporating Shakin’ All Over, Spoonful and Twist and Shout."

Russell Newmark
The Beat

 

"Opting to jettison recent live staples like Tattoo and A Quick One in favour of the as yet unrecorded I Don’t Even Know Myself and Water in front of 600,000 onlookers was brave, even by Who standards, but the band was on fire; their self-belief almost biblical; the gang mentality at both its most intense and its most amusing. (...) Murray Lerner’s film crew captured much of the show and, when later released as Listening to You, it became an instant cornerstone. It’s present and correct here, along with the entire live show over two CDs. Mind-blowing."

Andy Morten
Shindig!

 

"(...) This collection is enough to put hairs on the most doubting listener’s chest. Women included. (...) The hits are here, the songs from original rock opera Tommy are here and, most importantly, Keith Moon’s here. Just make sure your neighbours are understanding as this falls squarely into the ’play loud, or don’t play at all’ category."
