Among her many career highlights was a memorable evening set Joni Mitchell performed at the Isle of Wight in 1970, and on September 14, Eagle Vision will commemorate the event with a special DVD/Blu-ray/digital release.

Titled Both Sides Now: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970, the event encapsulated an era: The revered singer/songwriter taking the stage in a decidedly tense atmosphere, as protesters opposed to the consumerism of the festival set up shop nearby and were making their thoughts heard.

From the press release:

In 1970, the Isle of Wight Festival was one of the largest musical events of its time. Bigger than Woodstock, and controversial from the get-go, hundreds of thousands of people descended on the island. Many of those without tickets set up camp on a hill overlooking the festival site, opposing the consumerism of the event and intent on “taking the music back” by any means necessary. It was a celebration of hippy counter culture gone awry, and in Joni’s words “they fed me to the beast.”
