There are a lot of live recordings of Miles Davis in this electric period in the late 1960s but the Newport tracks are very unusual with Davis backed only by the rhythm section.

This isn’t my era of jazz but I can understand that this is an important phase.

Jethro Tull Nothing Is Easy 1970

Nothing Is Easy: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 is a live album by Jethro Tull. I think you can work out that this is another live recording from the famous live festival – a British version of Woodstock if you like.

The Who Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970

Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 is The Who recorded on on 29 August 1970, six months after the classic Live At Leeds album  and Live At Hull were made.

It was released in 1996, shortly after Live At Leeds had been extended the first time. At that stage Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival was the only legal way to get a prime time recording of The Who performing Tommy.

Since Live At Leeds was further extended by adding in Tommy, this album has become redundant for anyone except The Who completests or people with a particular affection for the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival.

Unless you want to see the 1970 version of The Who perform live since this has the option of a DVD.

Taste Live At The Isle Of Wight 1970

Taste Live At the Isle Of Wight was recorded at the big festival on the island in 1970 and showcases Rory Gallagher’s guitar playing.

Rory Gallagher has been one of the main inspirations behind this Best Live Albums blog because I think his Irish Tour 74 album is terrific.

I was listening to the CD and thought that more people need to know about this fantastic live music.

Taste is an earlier 3 piece band with Rory Gallagher on guitar and lead vocals, Richard “Charlie” McCracken on bass and John Wilson on drums.
