August, 1970: With Jim Morrison’s ongoing Miami obscenity trial casting an ominous shadow over the band, The Doors flew to England to play the Isle of Wight Festival. Looking forward to them at “The Last Great Festival” were over 600,000 fans who had already torn down the barriers, crashed the gates, and enjoyed performances by the arena’s top acts such as Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Miles Davis and Joni Mitchell. The Doors took the stage at 2 am, playing with the load of the trial on their backs, and showed fans they still had the magic that had propelled them to the highest throughout the Summer of Love. “We played with a controlled fury and Jim was once in fine vocal form,” said Doors organist Ray Manzarek. “He sang for all he was once worth, but moved nary a muscle. Dionysus had been shackled.” Not up to a year later, The Doors were no more. Here, for the first actual time, is the last Doors concert ever filmed.
