5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC 3 Nov 2006
Just brilliant!! I was often bugged by the sound and picture of the original release! but this version has alot of improvement!! you have to get it!! 5.1! DTS! play it through that cinema set-up and its pure bliss :) the new mix is great, you hear all the band members clearly, I notice Johns bass alot more now :) theres a very interesting interview with Pete worth listening to :) and 2 bonus live tracks :) Thanks Bob Pridden and Pete Townshend for giving the fans a release of this brilliant concert with a wonderful remastered job :) if you love this concert and own the old dvd version, replace it with this, you wont regret it :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Post-remaster editing issues, otherwise great 16 Sep 2011
This comment is aside from the previously mentioned shortening/changing the order of songs and to do with how the audio and video sync up. Have the original on VHS and this DVD version. I love The Who and this era is about my favourite, and grateful it was captured so well by Murray Lerner (my favourite rock movie is A Message To Love from the same festival), and they also had good audio to work with, remixed so perfectly by the man who's worked with them for well over 40 years, Bob Pridden.

I still highly recommend this as the picture and sound are brilliantly remastered, though the reason I've dropped a star is that I preferred the visual (not audio) editing on the original. The sound at least went with what you were seeing all the time (almost). The editors on the '04 version Greg Sheldon and Einar Westerlund didn't seem to bother getting the remastered footage in line with the audio at times, e.g. showing Pete windmilling, but the audio contains soloing high up on the fretboard. In Heaven & Hell, he's soloing, but he's not playing the bit you're hearing. Also in Heaven & Hell, Keith is 'choking' the cymbal 3 or 4 times close together, shown correctly on the original, yet the remaster shows him doing that when not in the sound, then you hear the chokes, and he's shown playing a different part!

This all sticks out like a sore thumb to a Who fan, or simply someone who understands rock music. Both of these guys seem to have editing credentials, but were seemingly having a day off, or had an idea that sticking random bits of irrelevant action would add some kind of dynamism... but really I think they had limited rock music knowledge and got lost with the footage. It's a shame, the remastering is excellent and the audio brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crank Up The Volume! 1 Jan 2008
My advice. Do what I did. Have a few drinks. Put on the dvd. Crank up the volume. A little bit more. Have another drink. Repeat. Repeat. Worth every penny. This is the first review I have written. Such is the perfection of this dvd. Turn up the volume until the speakers cry. Then enjoy. Live recordings of The Who don't get better. It might me 38 years old but quality music doesn't age. Must go. Got to follow my own advice!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Might at Wight 12 Jan 2011
What a great DVD.The mighty Who live at the Isle of Wight. Tremendous sound,I play it loud.The pictures are great also! All in all a wonderful performance.Worth it alone to see and hear Keith Moon in action. What a sad loss at 31yrs, only.Not an expensive DVD and if you are an old rocker like me you will get many times the price back in enetrtainment. Needless to say Highly Reccommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars by the way 5 Jan 2011
agree with everything said above. Still dont understand why all the gig isnt here unlike the CD which has all of Tommy.
By the way I was there that night and before the Who we had the Doors ELP and Ten Years After and on sunday Jimi's last gig in the UK
