I have to admit that my memory of this festival is a tad hazy. No, not necessarily for the reason you're thinking, but mainly because I was very tired, and kept dozing off. The great thing about this DVD, and the reason for five stars from me, is the atmosphere that it re-creates. And since I didn't pay for a ticket, it seems only fair that I should finally pay my dues (to someone, at any rate), by buying this DVD.
The Who, of course, were top geezers. They always were at live festivals, and their performance here was only topped (in my view) by their gig at the Oval cricket ground. Nice to see Hendrix, who I remember as a wee dot in the distance as I shared a bottle of tizer (honestly) with a lady whose name escapes me.
If you were there, go and buy this to restore your brain cells. If you weren't, buy this to find out why your mum and dad say "Ah, the Isle of Wight - now that was a gig...."
