Doors fans will have a belated opportunity to revisit one of the later chapters in the band’s history with singer Jim Morrison in early 2018, with the release of an audio and video package capturing the group’s performance at the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970.
Scheduled for a Feb. 23 release and available to pre-order now, the sensibly titled The Doors: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 will be available on CD/DVD, CD/Blu-ray or digital format, and offers “completely recut and remixed” footage from what turned out to be the band’s final filmed show with Morrison. Held on Aug. 30, 1970, in the midst of Morrison’s obscenity trial, it found the Doors falling back on the music that brought them together at a time when outside factors were on the verge of tearing them apart.
