The Doors: Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970

Edition Type: Blu-ray | CD
Director: Murray Lerner (1970) & John Albarian
Stars: Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek & John Densmore
Studio: Eagle Rock Entertainment
Genre/Catagory: Musical
Rating: Not Rated

Disc Release Date: 2/23/2018


Synopsis: The last known unseen performance of The Doors in existence, "The Doors: Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970" has been completely recut and remixed from the original film footage and is fully approved by The Doors. The scene is August 30, 1970...frontman Jim Morrison's ongoing obscenity trial, from an incident a year prior in Miami, weighs heavily on the band. "The Last Great Festival" is taking place in England, which boasted numerous venerables. The film captures and showcases the essence of this poignant performance, as well as offering a snapshot of the era, with footage of fans (over 600,000 in attendance) tearing down barriers and crashing the gates to gain access to the event. The Doors hit the stage at 2:00 a.m., delivering a set that further proved the musical power that marked them as a beacon of the Summer of Love. In this 84-minute Blu-ray, Morrison, organist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore traverse such staples as "Roadhouse Blues," "Break On Through (To The Other Side)," and "Light My Fire." "Our set was subdued but very intense," Manzarek later stated. "We played with a controlled fury and Jim was in fine vocal form. He sang for all he was worth, but moved nary a muscle. Dionysus had been shackled." The Doors made an enormous impact on the music world in their few year of existence before Jim Morrison's passing in 1971.
