3.0 out of 5 stars 1977 compared to 1970 ?? - a million miles apart, 5 Feb. 2009
This review is from: The Who - At Kilburn 1977 + Live at the Coliseum [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
I must first mention that i am a massive fan of The Who, and if im gonna give a slightly critical review, i must explain why.

This isnt an all that bad performance by general standards, but just compare this to live at leeds or the isle of wight, and theres a huge difference. There doesnt seem to be any passion in this performance. note than on dreaming from the waist, pete almost has to prompt entwistle to go off into that little solo of his. Roger Daltrey forgets his words and pete has a rant at the audience as well, even asking why the cameramen bother filming.

My biggest dissappointment was Moonie, the best rock drummer ever, but once again, absolutely nothing compared to his early years. He's gasping as he hits the drums, his years of drinking clearly taking its toll. Those incredible tom fills are sparse and he plays more like a regular drummer with a backbeat. But his drumming was integeral to The Who's sound and without that, it just doesnt sound right, you have listened to the original and live performances and so Who fans cant help but expect it, which is why i was so dissappointed.

Once again ill say i am a genuine fan of The Who, but this just doesnt cut the mustard. It is obvious that at this point they are not touring very much. If only they had played like they did in the early 70's, the best rock and roll band ever.
