The 1970 Isle of Wight Festival in England was “a little chaotic” in the words of Robby Krieger. It was the doors third to last concert, in the midst of Jim Morrisons trial for indecent exposure down in Miami.
It was a different type of show for The Doors, Jim wasn’t as animated as usual, the lighting was dark at Jim’s request since he wasn’t in the greatest of moods, and at the overweight with a beard point of his career. However, the show still sounded great, and the rest of the band thrived during the lenghtier instrumental jams.
The CD DVD set will be released on February 23rd.
