How Music Changed

    For the last of our series of ‘live’ shows from the early seventies, we feature highlights from the Who’s legendary performance at the Isle of Wight in 1970.

    By this time, the band had ben playing for “Tommy” for a year and a-half, and preparing to retire it from their show. Meanwhile, Townshend was developing ideas for the band’s next project, which he called “Lifehouse”. A few of the songs intended for that project started to creep into the band’s set, as seen here.

    Featured tracks include;

    Heaven and Hell

    Young Man Blues

    I Don’t Even Know Myself



    It’s a Boy


    Pinball Wizard

    Go to the Mirror

    My Generation

    Naked Eye
