Moody Blues Live At The Isle Of Wight (2008)
It was 1970 on the tiny Isle of Wight, just off England's southern coast. This year's festival was destined to go down in the record books as the largest rock festival of the era. The Moody Blues were at the height of their psychedelic powers and their set that day has finally been released. The original tapes have been mixed by Justin Hayward himself, and despite the defects of the 38 year old masters, an hours worth of high aiming music shines through. There is a beautiful, optimistic, purple hazy atmosphere, and the songs have stood the test of time, the bands most famous tracks are all here, and 'Legend Of A Mind' is still a psychedelic classic.
