Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970 [Video]
The historic last concert ever filmed of The Doors is now available for the first time! The concert was meticulously restored via the latest 21st century technology, color corrected and visually upgrading the original footage. The entire show, which is now presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital sound, was mixed from the original multi-track audio by longtime Doors engineer / mixer / co-producer Bruce Botnick.
Filmed on August 1970, 2AM, in front of 600,000 people, with Jim Morrison’s ongoing Miami obscenity trial still weighing heavily on the band, they 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 DVD and Blu-ray also contain the bonus feaurette “This Is The End" - with interviews conducted by the film’s original director, Academy Award® Winner Murray Lerner with Krieger, Densmore, original Doors manager Bill Siddons and archival interview footage of Manzarek from 2002
