Worth it for the Coliseum,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Kilburn 1977 [DVD]  (DVD)
It's not entirely fair to blame Moon for the lacklustre performance at Kilburn. Yes, he's clearly unfit and not the drummer he was but he holds it together pretty well and his roll on the toms at the end of the synth break on Won't Get Fooled Again is magnificent. The whole band is out of practice and you'd have thought they could have put in some rehearsal knowing they were going to be filmed. The main culprit here is Townshend who goes so far off course during Who Are You that the rest just give up trying to discern any recognisable melody or rhythm and stop playing. He looks in a foul temper throughout the whole show, casting murderous glances at everybody.
On the other hand, the Coliseum gig depicts the band at their peak, tight and completely together. The banter on stage between Moon and Townshend is hilarious and it's great to hear some different songs slipping in like Tattoo and Fortuneteller. An essential purchase for this footage alone.
