5.0 out of 5 stars NEW BD Documentary tells the full story of "Tommy" from Pete Townshen's mind through the Broadway production - nice bonus too! 6 Mar 2014
By Steven I. Ramm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
This is another fine original documentary going direct to DVD and BD from Eagle Rock Entertainment. Though the copyright at the end of the (approx) 90 minute documentary says 2013, it is not being released until March 11, 2014. With an additional 32 minutes of "Bonus material" (more on that in a minute) there is nearly two hours of material here to delight any fan of The Who, especially fans of their rock opera "Tommy".

Every living person connected with the project is interviewed here, from really lengthy, insightful comments by Pete Townshend, who concieved of the idea and wrote nearly all the songs and Roger Daltrey (the lead singer who admits to life being harder after "Tommy " was released and the Who started playing 120,000 seat stadiums). Archival interviews from the late John Entwhisle are here as well. The artist who designed the Lp jacket, the sound engineer and the group's manager during this period are here also. There comments from Townshend's biographer, critic Anthony Decurtis (who seems to be interviewed in nearly every rock doc I've seen) and Jann Wenner, the cocky founder of Rolling Stone. And there are clips from many performances of the opera. It was truly - as the film's title says - a "sensation".

The bonus material consists of eight songs from "Tommy" as well interview segments from a 1969 episode of the German TV pop/rock show "Beat Club". It's in black and white and BC always used weird video effects to give things a "psychedelic" touch. Still, a nice bonus.

The images and sound on the BD are great. The BC material probably looks just as great on the DVD version.
As I said above, this is something all Who fans will want to see and own.

I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sensation - The Story Of Tommy (DVD) 1 Jun 2014
By Bring_back_the_60s - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I was not sure if I should get this DVD, there are so many Who documentary's out there on DVD but they are all good. I decided to take the plunge. This is a detailed look at the album with Pete Townshend giving us his deep thoughts into the making and meaning of Tommy. There are also comments from Roger and posthumously from John and Keith Moon. There are a lot of music footage included and what impressed me is the fact the producers of this DVD were kind enough to include mostly full performances of these classic songs from various concerts. Some of the footage rare and not seen before.
It is an enjoyable show throughout and well paced. Pete's an extraordinary man and his vision of Tommy is well told here.
The bonus footage is a TV special the Who did in Germany in 1969 highlighting the best songs from Tommy like a long music clip in B&W unfortunately. It would be far better in colour.

Overall a worthy DVD if you love the Who.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting history on the making of Tommy 18 April 2014
By Robert K. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This Blu-ray is required viewing for Who fans. Interviews with Pete, Roger and John are worth the price of admission. As a bonus you get The Who at the Beat Club footage from 1969.
