Eagle Rock Entertainment is proud to announce the release on double CD of The Who “Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970” [Cat No EDGCD339] on 9 February 2009. Released to coincide with the Blu-ray of the concert on the same day, this legendary performance has been unavailable on CD for several years. The Who’s thunderous set features virtually the whole of “Tommy” and many other classics including “My Generation”, “Substitute”, “I Can’t Explain” and “Magic Bus”. The CD release includes tracks not available on the DVD or Blu-ray releases due to lack of footage.
Unavailable for some considerable time, Eagle Records are now making available once again this double CD set of the complete performance by The Who at the Isle Of Wight Festival in 1970 in the original running order of the live show. The sound has been remastered by long time Who sound man Jon Astley and is now better than ever. Featuring the original classic line-up of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon and John Entwistle, The Who’s performance at the Isle Of Wight is rightly celebrated as one of their finest ever and this CD shows exactly why.
