This Special Edition 3DVD set brings together three classic programmes featuring The Who. Live In Texas 75 was filmed at The Summit in Houston, Texas and captures a typically incendiary live performance by The Who at the start of their tour in support of The Who By Numbers album. Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 captures the original line-up of The Who performing a full length set in front of an estimated 600,000 people. It is one of the most memorable concerts of their career. Who s Next is a documentary in the acclaimed Classic Albums series and tells the story behind the creation of this legendary album considered by many as the greatest testament to the songwriting talent of Pete Townshend and the musical power of The Who.
There are fans of the Who and then there are completist-collector-fans of the Who; the latter are likely to prize The Who EP
, a fun glimpse of the band in action on late-1960s German television. One of several DVD-EP titles from Classic Pictures (the "EP" is borrowed from the music industry's old "extended player" designation for recordings featuring four tracks), this one includes black-and-white, heavily solarised television footage of Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, and John Entwistle gamely lip-synching their way through "I'm a Boy", "See Me, Feel Me", "Pinball Wizard" and "I'm Free". There's little more: a bit of pop-up information ("The band achieved international fame with Tommy
"), and maybe a dozen abridged clips (teaser plugs, really) from other DVD-EPs for Leon Russell, Jack Bruce, Motorhead, and others. The latter performances are fun but it's annoying to see them cut off after a minute or less. --Tom Keogh
