I had such high hopes for this dvd, as previously available clips looked like a clean, well photographed record of an exciting, if raw performance. After a few minutes my expectations were shattered as the video slowed down and even stopped as the music played on. Then Keith Emerson's Moog lines were shown being played on Hammond organ, and other visuals were obviously drawn from other parts of the performance. Then we are treated to long clips of the beach, children, boat races, street scenes, piles of trash, and Isle of Wight crowd scenes filmed during the day when ELP went on at night. It reminds me of how Ed Wood struggled with day and night scenes in "Plan Nine From Outer Space." I wanted to see the second ever ELP concert, not some lame director's attempt at an "art film." I can't imagine even Ed Wood butchering this as badly in the editing room. I'll never understand why it's so difficult making an accurate record of a concert without someone inserting nonsense intending to improving the experience--the concert should speak for itself. On the plus side there are some good recent interviews with E, L, P, and their ex-manager. 4 stars for the performance and minus 3 for the post-production meddling.
