As a result, those expecting wild, circus-like behavior, as no doubt did many in this half-million count festival crowd, may well be perplexed. Chances are good, however, that such observers will be prompted in fairly short order to delve further into the lore surrounding the Doors, the iconic stature of whom comes across in no uncertain terms, albeit in slightly muted fashion, during Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970.
