Overview

The Who was near the height of its powers as one of Britain's greatest hard-rock bands when they played the massive 1970 Isle of Wight Music Festival for an audience of nearly 600,000. Filmmaker Murray Lerner, who captured the festival on film for the documentary Message To Love: The Isle of Wight Festival, focuses exclusively on the Who's set with this film, in which the band took the stage at 2 a.m. and electrified the sleepy crowd. The set includes "I Can't Explain," "My Generation," "Magic Bus," the rarities "Water" and "I Don't Even Know Myself," and a truncated version of the rock opera "Tommy."

Live at the Isle of Wight Festivle is the Who at their best. With classic hits like ''My Generation'',''Magic Bus'', and most of the songs from ''Tommy'', the Who gave one of the best performances ever. The performance is what rock & roll should be in its purest, most idealistic form.

This is the best concert ever performed by the best live band ever. I love The Who and I love everything about this concert from John's skeleton costume to Keith's small talk. What is even more intersting is the Pete Townshend interview. I never realized how much he disliked being in that band until I saw it. He has some pretty interesting stories and if you haven't gotten this DVD yet, go right now and pick it up. You won't regret it!
