The Moody Blues: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 and Live at Montreux 1991 is a treasure trove of performance history of what many feel is the preeminent prog rock band. These re-issues are now being made available on DVD/CD sets, truly giving fans the ultimate live experience.
Featuring such classic tracks as Question, Nights In White Satin, Tuesday Afternoon, Legend Of A Mind, Ride My See Saw, I’m Just A Singer (In A Rock And Roll Band), and Your Wildest Dreams, Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970 and Live at Montreux 1991 traces twenty years of The Moody Blues incredible live shows, proving that these songs stand the test of time.
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. Live at The Isle Of Wight captures this stunning performance, and includes a 20-minute documentary.
Live At Montreux (from July 1991) is the band’s only Montreux appearance to date. With a line-up including John Lodge, Justin Hayward, Ray Thomas and Graeme Edge, this was a very special night with inspired performances of all their classic hits. The brilliant folks at Eagle Rock Entertainment have, through a stroke of genius, made sure that the CD version of each concert is included! How cool is that? Couple that with the line-up mentioned earlier and a set list that, between the two offerings, covers over forty years of memories, these two DVD sets are both well worth the money and a must have for Moody Blues fans.
