Taste - What's Going On: Live at the Isle of Wight DVD

SKU 28-EGVS307189DVD
Taste were a power trio following in the footsteps of Cream but who were quite good in their own right and who also were the first professional band of guitarist Rory Gallagher when he was only 18 in 1966.

They made two quite good studio albums and broke up just after playing the Isle of Wight (this show) in front of several hundreds of thousands of people.

This performance has never before been released as a DVD!

"Originally formed in Cork, Ireland in 1966 by Rory Gallagher, Taste had a brief but influential career, releasing two studio albums in 1969 and 1970 and disbanding shortly after their legendary appearance at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival, which is the centerpiece of this film. The core of 'What's Going On' is the band's performance at the festival on August 28th but it is encapsulated by a documentary on the history and importance of Taste and setting the scene for their Isle Of Wight Festival appearance.
Bonus Features:
Three tracks from the German TV series Beat Club: (1) If The Day Was Any Longer (2) It's Happened Before, It'll Happen Again (3) Morning Sun
Three conceptual music videos: (1) I'll Remember (2) What's Going On (3) Born On The Wrong Side Of Time

"A must have if you're a Rory fan, there is a really nice documentary about Taste and Rory with the concert songs inserted in full screen 1.78.1 format, and also an option for just the concert footage in the correct 1.33.1 pillar boxed format. The footage has held up very well and displays beautifully in 1080, colors are vibrant and there are some great closeups."
