Listening to You:The Who at the Isle of Wight

I caught this last night in a special screening at the Scotiabank Theatre here in Toronto to mark it's release on Blu-ray. What can you say about this Murray Lerner film documenting this famous 1970 festival. Not much, except perhaps they cleaned it up so much it doesn't come of as a very good performance. Without a doubt the feature here is Keith Moon and the disc is worth a look just to see him at work. Just remember, the band can hardly hear themselves and the sound to the audience would certainly have been much different from what we have here.
