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 Blu-ray makes that performance available to be seen in high definition for the first time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Enjoyable July 19, 2010
By SloJoe
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After having listened to several live Moody Blues recordings, I didn't have very high hopes for this DVD, but I've enjoyed other Isle of Wight Festival DVDs, including Jethro Tull: Nothing Is Easy Live at the Isle of Wight 1970, the Who Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 (Special Edition), and Jimi Hendrix - Blue Wild Angel (Live at the Isle of Wight), and I really enjoy the Moody's work on their core seven albums. So I gave this DVD a shot and was surprised by how enjoyable it turned out to be. Despite the inclusion of stock footage that seems to show up in all the Isle of Wight DVDs, and the fact that some of the songs are fragmentary, and interspersed with present-day interview segments, in the end, I still enjoyed the show. The main block of the concert is uninterrupted, the song selection is great, and the stripped-down, live arrangements were well performed. Plus it's great to watch the (then) young band having a good time. This DVD is certainly better than the massively overdubbed The Moody Blues - The Lost Performance: Live In Paris '70 or the over-produced, well-past-their-prime Moody Blues: Lovely to See You (2005).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the one ! July 9, 2009
Format:DVD
I just finished watching this DVD and I am overwhelmed. This is a MUST for any Moody Blues fan .. for any music fan. It's put together wonderfully. The footage of the live performance in 1970 .. the interviews... the splicing together of the future concerts... awesome.
Two words... buy it. I love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Your search is over December 22, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This a magical performance caught on film from the Moody Blues. They producers did an excellent job restoring both the sound and film, very clear and life like. The set list is my favorite of all the other moody dvds I have and I get a real sence of being there when I watch this Blu-Ray. If you are a fan you owe it to yourself to pick this up, the price is affortable and you get a lot of bang for your buck.

It's the Moody Blues, what else do I have to say? The sound and picture are great and since I pump his through a 500 watt home theater, lets just say it "rocks"!
