God, I'm sick of people slagging this performance off. The older material is performed in a lacklustre manner true, also the technical problems didn't help although I feel that Jimi's struggling with the equipment produced a far more emotive set than for example, the Berkeley concert.
The IOW set has much more passion and feeling than many of his '70's gigs especially the newer material such as Dolly Dagger, Ezy Rider, In from the Storm etc, and the version of Machine Gun is right out there in the stratosphere. If you want to here a bad Jimi performance then track down a bootleg copy of his Arhus gig 02/09/70 - now that is a bad gig!!!
The IOW gig shows a more passionate and humane version of the performer, even if he wasn't in the best of shape.
The 5.1 mix is excellent too
My main gripe with this DVD is that it's not the full set but hey, there's still enough.
Maybe not ideal as an intro to the man, but an absolute classic performance (even tho lots of people including Mr Chandler, stated it was dreadful) in that the struggle with the equipment brings out more passion and feel to the songs in my opinion.

people in general have always said it wasnt the best documented
gig he has done. i bought the vhs reissue back in 1990. This new version gives it total justice,what you get is a full concert from backstage before, through to the end,murray learner had full access to the stage and the filming is pure class for the period
ok, for the first half of the gig jimi struggles to get into it, but his playing is pure virtuoso.. top stuff. and the film restoration is superb, complete with a build up documentary before. Interviews with mitch,billy cox and his road manager.
I recomend this purely as a musician and a fan if you are either get it...

I do not have a clue what everyone is talking about. This is by far the best hendrix performance available to purchase on DVD. There are some truly fantastic moments that should go down in history. The solo to "ezy rider" brought a tear to my eye and it is worth just buying this DVD to see Jimi finally open his eyes fully in the middle of "All along the watchtower." Jimi's great sense of humour is brought to life in this concert and his offhand remarks regarding the sheer amount of wars going on bring this piece of footage into the context of the late '60s/early 70s.
Granted, jimi suffers from some technical problems involving his guitar (it appears to be the pick-ups)but the fact that jimi is still playing when he trails around backstage establishes him once again as the pure genius he is.
The features are commendable with merchandise from the concert open for viewing among others. This is a must buy for any Hendrix fan, period.

The Jimi Hendrix - Blue Wild Angel Live at the Isle of Wight Festival DVD is a pretty essential purchase for Hendrix fans, the boxset contains the concert on two cds, a DVD film with extras and a great booklet with detailed linear notes.
The CD version of the concert boasts three extra songs: 'Hey Joe,' 'Hey Baby (New Rising Sun)' and the excellent rare blues number 'Midnight Lightning.'
The main reason to buy the set however, is for the almost 2 hour DVD, which begins as the band wait to take the stage and features the tracks:
"God Save the Queen," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Spanish Castle Magic," "All Along the Watchtower," "Machine Gun," "Lover Man," "Freedom," "Red House," "Dolly Dagger," "Foxey Lady," "Message to Love," "Ezy Ryder," "Purple Haze," "Voodoo Child (Slight Return)" and finally "In From the Storm."
The sound and visuals are pretty great, and look a little better than the other Hendrix DVDs and have a more balanced set of shots of the whole band and the individual members. There has been a lot of talk about the two occasions on which security walkie-talkie signals can be heard over the main speakers but it is so for so short a period of time and is inconsequential that potential buyer needn't worry about it.
The performance begins excellently and the band are on top form, nailing every second up until the very end of 'All Along the Watchtower,' when Mitch keeps a beat going instead of playing the floor toms, which seems to cause Jimi to lose confidence.
The 20 minute version of 'Machine Gun,' is mostly excellent and features a drum solo from Mitch, some lengthy improved sections and would be pretty flawless if it didn't end to abruptly and had the transition from Drum Solo back into the song been smoother.

Not for the Hendrix newbie (unless you have a load of live recordings on CD perhaps and want this as a first DVD introduction - but then I'd point you to Monterery as that's where I begun and can't think of a better way to.) A lot of his playing is just as mesmerising as ever here and his stage presence made him what he was, mostly to me. Yes, there are equipment problems in a few places but not as much as I remembered and the band keep it together more than other reviews I've read, suggest (my opinion, of course.) Nice to be able to hear and watch some lesser known tracks that I've always loved and interesting to hear them played obviously just on the one instrument. Difficult to knock the sound and picture quality, for the source material (and age of) and it comes across as pretty decent all-round. I've been a massive Hendrix devotee since the 80s and this is 100% essential to the likes of me - hence the 5/5.
