Released:
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Live at the Isle of Wight may not be as pristinely recorded as Live at Leeds, but there's so much energy, such deep engagement with the audience, that it trumps the more famous recording. Townshend's guitar-playing is more psychedelic than usual, while Roger Daltrey preens so vividly that you can almost hear the beads clatter on his fringe jacket. Bawdy songs like "Water," with the classic line "We need water, and maybe somebody's daughter," show the band's high spirits as they banter with the crowd. As a bonus of the long set, the band performs Tommy in its entirety.
