Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: At Kilburn 1977 [DVD]  (DVD)
I have been in love with the Who for 25 years and bought this DVD with only moderate expectations as I am aware that some people regarded the kilburn gig as underpar musically and slightly chaotic. Well let me tell you. If the music wasnt up to scratch then it aint that obvious. Kilburn rocks big time!! The energy the guys bring in 1977 when they are supposedly on the slide is mindblowing. Their stage presence is mesmerising. Daltrey does his mike twirling, Townshend windmills and jumps about like theres no tomorrow and Moon beats the cr!p out of his drumkit while doing a few neat tricks bouncing his sticks off his drums etc. There are quite a few memorable and humorous bits in there as well; Townshend getting angry with the crowd and roadies at a few points, Daltrey forgetting the words to dreaming from the waist and pissing his sides laughing. All in all completely absorbing and the picture and sound quality is absolutely top notch. The bonus DVD shows the who playing at the coliseum in 1969 when supposedly they were at their peak. The coliseum gig is good but picture and sound quality are not in the same league as kilburn and it lacks the kilburn chaos. For me Kilburn is the one to watch although the coliseum gig is a very nice bonus. For me Kilburn is the best live footage Ive seen of a Who concert. If any better exists then please let me know.
