Various Artists - Communiqu To Dearest (The 1970 Isle Of Wight Festiv

This 135-notes documentary of the 1970 Isle of Wight Carnival, which was released in 1996, is (along with Monterey Pop) the finest pic or video of any of the «60s/early-»70s sway festivals.

Captain Murray Lerner had 26 years to collect the m, and achieved an ironic distancing from the stuff that makes this a lot more watchable than Woodstock. Add to that the fait accompli that most of the acts customary to both were playing better (and had a better seem approach to m off of) here than they did at Woodstock, and you«ve got a must-own video. The key upshot wasn»t so much the carnival itself, but the fait accompli that it collapsed of its own albatross, as counterculture kids, resenting the fait accompli that tickets to the three-day upshot rate about three pounds (clumsily $8.00 American), overwhelmed the fences and the gates and swarmed in, assuring that few artists got paid and that the promoters departed a prosperity.

Some of the performances are very sizeable (Leonard Cohen, doing «Suzanne»; the Who, in what was probably their best carnival hint, doing «Tommy»; Miles Davis in a too-brief rate), others historically fundamental (the Doors in their waning days doing «When the Music«s Over» and «The End»; Jimi Hendrix in his closing concert hint, 12 days before he died), some merely riveting (the Sulky Blues singing «Nights in Spotless Satin»; Self-Ruling, on the eve of stardom, doing «All Right Now»; Drop) and one or two unconditionally bizarre (Kris Kristofferson leaves the make up during «Me and Bobby McGee» because of disturbances in the audience, and a bearded one-off interrupts Joni Mitchell as she»s singing «Woodstock,» and attempts to smacker her), and two are unconditionally uncomfortable (Minute Tim, Donovan).

Where Woodstock runs over three hours and feels like three days, Report to Infatuation, with a lot more humor and trustworthiness over the ludicrousness of the times, runs just over two and feels just under. (AMG)
