Live at the Isle of Wight Festival is a double live album by The Who, recorded at the Isle of Wight Festival on 29 August 1970, and released in 1996. 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

The Who’s manager Kit Lambert had recorded both the 5th and 6th of April shows of ’68 with a view to issuing as The Who’s fourth album after Sell Out. That never happened, but 50 years later sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was there in 1968) has restored and mixed songs from the 6 April show for this new archival release. The setlist features extended versions of My Generation (33 minutes!), A Quick On. Shakin’ All Over and many other Who classics. The Who Live at Fillmore East 1968 will be released on 20 April 2018
From the manufacturer. Live at the Fillmore East 1968. Restored and Remastered for The Show’S 50Th Anniversary. The 2CD 3LP sets include three Eddie Cochran numbers; My Way, Summertime Blues and the never before released Who version of C’mon Everybody. There is finally an official release of The Who concert at the Fillmore East! It is long overdue, released officially a little over fifty years after the event. For Who fans this recording is a must, although I suspect if you are a Who fan you already have this recording in bootleg form.
this is the official live at the fillmore east us pressing that was released on 4/20/18, to bad it took 50 years for a none bootleg version of this to come out, this is pressed on thick 180g vinyl and opens up to the same 1968 photo as the cd version does, this has nice inner sleeves with liner notes
Date/Location/Venue: 06/12/76 - Swansea, Wales - Vetch Field. Year & Country Issued/Label: 1976 - USA - K&S. Also issued as a picture disc (above) in 1976, by K&S. Sad, because the pre-album live version of "Who Are You" is probably one of the best live versions of the song I've ever heard! Track Listing: Introduction, I Can't Explain, Substitute, Baba O'Riley, My Wife, Behind Blue Eyes, Dreaming From The Waist, Pinball Wizard, I'm Free, Tommy's Holiday Camp, Summertime Blues, Shakin' All Over, My Generation, Join Together, Who Are You, Won't Get Fooled Again.
This was pure, distilled power, all the better for its brevity; throughout the '70s the album was seen as one of the gold standards in live rock & roll, and certainly it had a fury that no proper Who studio album achieved. It was also notable as one of the earliest legitimate albums to implicitly acknowledge - and go head to head with - the existence of bootleg LPs.
In 2004 the Who returned to the Isle Of Wight Festival for the first time since their legendary performance in 1970. After a long absence, the festival had been reborn in 2002 and continues to this day. Their UK concerts in 2004 were the first in their home country since the death of founder member John Entwistle. As the evening shadows lengthened across the festival site, the Who took to the stage and delivered an incendiary performance packed with hit singles and classic album tracks and the concert more than lived up to the fan’s expectations and memories of 1970.
