Just a couple of points first - I love the Who, they are my favourite band of all time and I'm very biased when I discuss their music. However, this album is absolutely rotten. This is mainly due to the production and transfer to CD. If you listen very carefully at the start of the CD and half way through the CD, YOU CAN HEAR THE NEEDLE BEING PUT ONTO THE RECORD!!!
They transferred the music to CD from vinyl! How rubbish is that?!!!
The production is tinny and, although I'm sure he played like the genius he was, Entwistle's base is barely audible.
I'd love to think that this album isn't as bad as it seems to be. To achieve this the album needs to be completely remastered and reproduced. If MCA are listening, please do this!!!!!

I had to give it some stars because I love (understatement!) their music and this CD has many of the greats, but sadly the recording has been very poorly produced. It seems as though the original stage set-up on many of the tracks (for they are picked from multiple performances on the USA/Canada 1982 tour) were badly miked... especially Daltrey's vocals which on some tracks - especially "I can't explain" - you can hardly hear! In fact, if it wasn't for the fact that most people buying this will be Who fans (who listen to the tracks knowing all the words!), you wouldn't be able to tell what poor Roger was singing. By contrast, Pete's guitar is sometimes far too loud whilst, as one of the other reviewers commented, the usually fantastic bass is far too quiet... suggesting it was badly mixed/produced in the studio afterwards. On top of this - again I find myself merely concurring with other peoples' comments - the transcription onto CD isn't of a high quality either.

In summary, if you're a Who fan, do buy it for the collection and to enjoy some of the energy of the live performances (and some tracks are great), but you might well be disappointed with the recording quality.

'Whos Last' was an album I waited to hear back in 80's with great anticipation. The news was that The Who had either split or were about to so I was keen to get my ears round it. Sadly other events occurred and that listening at the time never happened.

The album was trashed by the critics who complained that the whole effort was just a ploy to cash in on past glories. I could never understand their cynicism back then but now?

Fast forward to 2012.

In its defence theres a good representation of the Who's music over the previous 20 odd years. Three are also some brilliant flashes. But thats the good news over.

The biggest problem here is sound quality-AWFUL! It is unacceptable in 2012 to have an album out which sounds like a CD copy of the vinyl record of 1984.

And strangely the track listing omits any material from "Face Dances" and "Its Hard" despite the fact it was certainly being played at the time.

Well it can still be remedied but it will be hard...

Nothing short of a total revision is needed.

The master tapes need digging out and the album needs a complete remix as well as remastering to get it into shape.

Plus of course the post Keith Moon material needs to be represented.

As it stands I couldn't in any way recommend this album unless you are in need of completing your Who collection.

And thats a shame. The talent is there but it has so totally wrecked it should be avoided.

due to much preassure,pete and co took the band on the road for the farwell tour of the u.s the tracks on this album are mainly from canada and toronto. on its release,it was also broadcast on satellite,which also produced a video(the who rocks america) the performance itself,although from sellout tours,seems to lack something.kenney jones from the small faces replaces the late keith moon who although is a great drummer,does not fullfill the part of keith.whos last is like the studio albums of that period,(face dances and its hard),in the fact they have a few shining moments,but not enough to be highly rated. on reflection,the who now are doing a back to the rootes tour and the performances are 100% better,so it would be of more intrest for them to produce a tour album now than then

There will never be a Who's Last album, not with all the repackaging of their older material that keeps getting released, and not as the band keeps going, no matter who's left in it. While the US version of this cd was 2 discs (I only had disc 2) I find the single disc UK release much better with some of the crowd noise and band comments removed. MCA in the states put out the 2 cd set because it was a double album set, much the same thing that was done with Who's Better, Who's Best - in the states, a double album, in England, it was all crammed on to a single disc, with just a little loss of volume, but thats what the knobs on the stereo are for - to turn it up when its lower. This is a really nice overview of their greatest hits live, something that Pete Townshend once said he didn't care for, he always wanted a new stage show, but since this was supposedly their last tour, they trotted out all the old hits and did them good, a version to remember for most.
