Nothing Is Easy: Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 is a live album by the British rock band Jethro Tull, recorded on the Isle of Wight Festival in 1970. This CD was released in 2004, and in 2005 there is an eponymous documentary on DVD appeared.
Three years after the emergence of the band Jethro Tull was on the last day of the Isle Of Wight Festival (often called the British Woodstock) on stage. With a present audience of almost 600,000 people (still the record number of spectators at a festival), the band was one of the most impressive acts that day. That day played among other things also The Who, Jimi Hendrix and the Moody Blues.
Ian Anderson joked that he released this CD to still make some money to the event.
The Group delighted the giant crowd of the famous festival, but still has no money received for their action.
Anderson: "we were together with Jimi Hendrix the valves, the three day festival, and the Baker ran out of hand by the desire of free entrance. The omnipresent grumpiness of a portion of the disillusioned hippies had brought chaos and violence in parts of the crowd. Joni Mitchell was in tears broke out on the stage. Jimi was not very happy. I think we never paid for us by these chaotic conditions occur, but that is also not very important."
