Jim Morrison was still facing a possible three-year prison term stemming from trumped-up indecent exposure/profanity charges in Miami the preceding year when The Doors—who had multiple dates cancelled in the wake of the incident—took the stage at England’s Isle of Wight Festival at 2 a.m. in August of 1970.
