I already had the separate DVD of this performance, but purchased this very reasonably priced set to enable me to enjoy a fantastic group performance on CD during my often tedious and lengthy journeys to and from work on the M1. Hearing this band's music, at the probable peak of their live performance, is amazing, even after more than 40 years. I was at this festival, at the age of 18, and The Who was one of the bands I really wanted to see. They didn't disappoint. They came on stage in the early hours but I don't think anyone in the audience minded. The combination of Keith Moon on drums and John Entwhistle on bass (wearing the first skeleton costume I'd seen) was astonishing to me and still is, as it's not not so obvious on singles and studio albums. Coupled with Pete Townsend's aggressive guitar and Roger Daltrey's fantastic vocals and visual stage presence, this was a superb performance. I also have the double 'Live at Leeds' and 'Live at Hull' CDs from consecutive nights 6 months earlier in February 1970 but am not aware of a film of those concerts so this DVD, and the personal nostalgia element, makes this an essential addition to my collection.
