LEONARD COHEN: LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970
2009, MLF, 65 min, Dir: Murray Lemer

In a legendary performance 40 years ago, the then 35-year-old Cohen held a crowd of 600,000 spellbound for an hour-long show that started at 4 a.m. The best film document of Cohen’s early period, including major hits such as "Suzanne," "So Long Marianne," "The Stranger Song," "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye," "Diamonds In The Mine" and "Famous Blue Raincoat" - with Cohen backed by his group The Army - led by producer Bob Johnston.


THE WHO: LISTENING TO YOU
2004, MLF, 87 min, Dir: Murray Lemer

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).


MILES ELECTRIC

Built around Davis’ legendary Isle of Wight performance with a band that included Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett, the film provides insight into his groundbreaking odyssey into electric music. Includes interviews with Carlos Santana and Joni Mitchell.
