Format: VHS Tape
A wonderful document which bears up to both repeated viewing and the occasional "dipping into", there have been very few like it. Possibly the nearest contenders are The Rolling Stones "25 X 25" and The Beatles Anthology series, however neither of these admittedly excellent tapes match the warmth, honesty and vitriol of the commentaries from Daltrey, Entwistle, and especially a very self-critical Townshend, the latter both verbally and in the booklet. This could almost be viewed as visible evidence of Pete's then long-standing and ongoing vilification of The Who, both personnel and legend, the majority of which was unjustifiable. In his comments he is by turns whingeing, insulting and complimentary about Daltrey, Moon, Entwistle and their fans, particularly the comment that The Who were never in the first division of British bands. Oh, really ? Once you get past this, then the video is wonderful. Live performances are as good as it gets, with again the peak years of 1971-75 under-represented. It doesn't duplicate performances on "The Kids Are Alright", to which it is complimentary. Many of the triumphs and failures are present, hilarious moments, ancient video, unseen until then concert footage, including four superb numbers from Charlton 1974 (BBC, where are you with the complete show ?) and so many moments on or about Keith Moon. Picture and sound are spot on when considering the age of the material, and lack of live film or video material (one track is even from a private tape). Hopefully the DVD,when it arrives wil be a further improvement. Fact: when The Who broke up in 1982, they were the biggest live act on the planet, and most of their audiences, especially in the States, were under 20. The Kids were alright after all. Buy this,and then the 4 Cd box set.

Format: DVD
I bought this excellent video when it came out in 1994. Absolutely astonished to find that the Tanglewood 1970 footage has been dropped in favour of some 1982 footage. Astonishing decision given that the accompanying booklet acknowledges the shortage of footage from the golden era of 1970 - 1974 - The band themselves banished filming of their gigs during this period.
Tanglewood tracks: 1. Intro by Bill Graham 2. Heaven & Hell 3. Cant Explain 4. Water

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had the original R&B video already but quality of new (and remastered) DVD is much better as far as video and audio is concerned. Bonus DVD contains German Rockpalast concert in Essen what is a good add-on because as far as I know there was only a bootleg CD available from this unless you recorded it from TV almost 30 years ago. Meanwhile, my tape copy had a very poor quality so I was glad to get this concert back now in digital form.

Format: DVD
Watching this DVD, allows u a chance for a totally different perspective on this fantastic band.
Here the emphasis is less on the merry japes and rock and roll excess of The Kids are Alright, now we see footage of one of the greatest rock and roll bands in the world doing what they do best.
Less pyrotechnics and more polish.
Early footage shows a rather lame and shaky little punk band, in the original sense of the word. Not as exciting on stage as the Beatles in their heyday despite Entwistles comments to the contrary. Daltrey is portrayed as nervous, giggly and insecure. His initial attempts at upstaging Townshend involve shoving a mic under Moons cymbals to produce a barrage of white noise. The act hilariously produces a four lettered reaction from Moon which only lip readers will understand. As for the Monterey Gig, which was their big break, it's hard to really understand their impact on the states as this is the band at their very worst. Crappy rented gear gives a poor sound, Daltrey merely spends the whole segment watching Entwistle for cues and everybody fluffs words chords etc. Compare this version of A Quick one to the one on the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus and u can readily see the effect that a few months of solid touring in the States did for the bands focus and confidence.
When the next clip appears two years have passed, the london colliseum gig shows a very tight and intense little band even on the gauche Happy Jack they are amazing to watch. As the second half of the clip is focussed entirely on Moon furiously mugging behind Daltrey.
The highlight of the whole DVD for me are the songs from Tanglewood and The Isle of wight. We surely deserve a more complete Tanglewood film at some point.

I have this on VHS. This version of Maximum R&B Live has the Tanglewood footage from 1970. What this music film does is tell the Who story in interviews and music using the best footage available. I have always found this to one of the best ever music films made and often watch this. I converted the footage and sound to DVD. What is very apparent as well is the love and respect these guys now have of each other and what a huge loss Keith Moon had to the band.
This is a very good compliment film to another great Who DVD, The Kids Are Alright. Both of these films really prove how brilliant The Who were in concert.
If you can get a hold of this on VHS you will see footage that apparently is not on the DVD version.
