A DVD of the concert was also released for the first time in 1996. The Who were one year and three months into their Tommy tour when they played their second engagement at the Isle of Wight Festival. As in 1969, they played most of their famous rock opera, which by this time was quite familiar to the festival crowd

Hardcore Who fanatics seem to prefer Live at Leeds, which was recorded only a few months before this material. That viewpoint is understandable: the performances are sharper on Leeds, and if you're not a big-league fan, that single-disc set is a more economical survey of the band in concert during this era. If you do like the Who a lot, though, Isle of Wight is worth having. The sound and performances are decent, although be aware that the band's on-stage version of Tommy omits some decent songs from the opera, such as "Sensation" and "Underture.

The Who's 1970 performance at the Isle of Wight is considered one of their finest live shows ever recorded. Their performance well into the middle of the night on July 29th, highlighted a day that also featured The Doors, Miles Davis, ELP & more. The band performs most of "Tommy", along with a number of their other hits, including "I Can't Explain", "My Generation" and "Magic Bus". For many years I listened to the original Live At Leeds album and loved it, until I bought the extended version with additional songs and realized how much of the concert was missing and how much more I loved what I thought was a really great performance. I have to admit I was wrong, as good as the Leeds album is this Isle of Wright performance is so much better its amazing.
