Drawing from hours of previously unseen footage shot over several years at the Newport Folk Festival in the early-to-mid 1960s.

Plus previously unseen Dylan performances!

Three years after their historic breakthrough appearances on the same bill at the 1967 Monterey Festival, and one year after their triumphant performances at 1969's Woodstock Festival, The Who and Jimi Hendrix found themselves on the same festival lineup for one last time - at the 1970 Isle of Wight Festival. The Hendrix show turned out to be his final major performance. Director Murray Lerner captured both artists in full-flight. Both films feature digitally restored film and audio (both mixed into mind-blowing 5.1).
