THE DOORS Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival, 1970

Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival, 1970

RE-UPPED We’ve revamped our previous post, using a (slightly) superior and more complete bootleg of The Doors’ performance at The Isle Of Wight festival, August 30th, 1970. In addition, we’ve added two bonus tracks… officially released Isle Of Wight performances of “Break On Through (To The Other Side),” from the soundtrack to 2010’s When You’re Strange, and “When The Music’s Over,” from the 1995 compilation CD, Message To Love: The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970. As for the overall show itself, the word has always been that The Doors thought it was a lethargic performance. Since they’re running out of shows to issue, however, expect to see it officially released sometime in the future. There’s LOTS more Doors in the archives, HERE.

    Thanks for this Captain!
    I was there – sadly this dates me….
    In those days a visit from a band like the Doors was manna from heaven for us English.
    They played a short set as your tracklist shows.
    Morrison went offstage for a lot of the instrumental parts of songs.
    We thought it was brilliant but we felt that with the Miami business, they had lost a lot of enthusiasm and Morrison was maybe too worried about a possible spell in jail to perform well.

    Yeah, I too was there! I seem to remember they followed Emerson Lake and Palmer on to the stage. I remember Morrison, who by that stage was built like a tank and work a heavy beard. Happy days (or daze!)
