Editorial Reviews

In 1970 The Moody Blues were at their creative and commercial peak. After reinventing themselves from their R&B roots to a much more sophisticated sound, between 1967 and 1970 they released five albums, four of which hit the Top 5 in the UK with two of them going to No.1. They enjoyed similar success in the USA where four of the albums hit the Top 20 and the other was just outside. At the end of August 1970, shortly after the release of their album "A Question Of Balance", The Moody Blues took to the stage of the Isle Of Wight Festival in front of an audience estimated at over half a million. This DVD makes that performance available to be seen for the first time.

A special thanks to Eagle Rock Entertainment for releasing this dvd. If you are a fan of the core 7 albums and the five members who created that wonderful music, then you are going to love watching this dvd. For me, the Isle of Wight concert was basically England's version of Woodstock with over a half a million people attending.

The band's performance is a little rough around the edges, but you can see how all five members show their delight and excitement and even a little fear in performing in front of that huge audience. Especially fun to watch perform is Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge. New interviews with the members are included (miss Ray). The interview with Mike Pinder talking about and demonstrating the mellotron is fascinating.

Also fun to watch is the band performing songs that are not currently on their tour lists (Gypsy). Currently, at the end of their concerts, John Lodge always thanks the audience for following them on their journey, and it is wonderful to have this recording taken from around the beginning of that journey.

So if you are a fan of British rock or a die-hard fan of the Moodies, this dvd is a must have. Especially if you are one of the Troubadour (Justin Hayward) fans.

This is a wonderful historic concert performed by the band during the time that a lot of people think that they were at the peak of their career. It is so good to see archive performances from this period finally becoming available.

Preceding the concert there is a 20 minute documentary including interviews with Justin Hayward, John Lodge, Graeme Edge, and Mike Pinder, most of which were taken from 1998. Believe or not, Mike does pull out his old mellotron. Also, a valuable comment was made by Justin, where he mentions there are no other "real" live video recordings of them from this period. By "real" I believe Justin means that this is an auctual raw performance, rather than being lip-synched. This was the case with the previously released Live in Paris '70, but not with this one.

Setlist on the concert portion of the DVD includes Gypsy, Tuesday Afternoon, Never Comes the Day, Tortoise and the Hare, Question, The Sunset, Melancholy Man, Nights in White Satin, Legend of a Mind, and Ride My See Saw. Video & audio portions of still other songs from the performance, such as Minstels Song and Are You Sitting Comfortably, due appear in the documentary portion, but not in their entirety. The complete set can be obtained on audio by purchasing the previously released CD or MP3 download of the performance.

I encourage prospective buyers to not be discouraged by the fact that the setlist is incomplete. The simple fact that this is available at all that makes this DVD valuable, as endorsed by Justin himself.

This is a rare look at the Moody Blues live in 1970. It is not a highly polished performance like their studio albums,but it is very good nonetheless. It starts with a 20 minute intro with present interview footage of John,Justin,Mike&Graeme,but sadly without Ray. The most interesting of this is Mike's demonstration of the mellotron and its interior workings. Next comes about an hour of actual concert footage. Most of the concert is excellent,with the weakest song being "Tortoise and the Hare". To be honest,the mellotron is extremely hard to play live,and Mike gives it his best shot. " Melancholy Man" is an absolutely blistering performance. Other standout performances are "Never Comes the Day","The Sunset",and "Legend of a Mind". The encore,"Ride My Seesaw",is a compilation of footage from various concerts. Some of the concert film was lost,and this is most likely the reason for this. The dvd has only 10 songs,while the cd has 14, due to the fact that some film footage was lost [as mentioned in the dvd booklet]. After the concert are present day reflections from the band [once again ,no Ray]. The end of the disc has Graeme reciting "Late Lament". This is an excellent look at early Moody Blues live. An absolute must for Moodies fans and for anyone who likes rock concerts that don't sound like they were done in the studio. There are no overdubs....this is a great raw performance.

What a treat for us fans of the real, legendary Moody Blues, at their peak, when Mike Pinder still graced the stage with Justin Hayward and the others. The Moodies produced seven wonderful albums between 1967 and 1972 before Mike Pinder left the band (and took the magic with him) and the rest of the guys carried on in a decidedly different musical direction. They were "The Moody Blues" thereafter, playing along with various keyboard players, drummers, extra singers and orchestras, to much acclaim and financial success. Plenty of videos of this whole extravaganza, for sure! But until now never any video of the real Moodies. So this DVD is priceless. Watch it and enjoy the Moody Blues live. And maybe, just maybe, this release might inspire the five Moodies to get together one more time for a concert reunion. There aren't many bands left from the 60s-70s with all their members still around, but the Moody Blues are all still with us. So how about it Mike, Ray, Justin, John and Graeme? Please?
