At 2am on August 30th 1970, one of the great British rock bands gave one of the most memorable concerts of their career to an audience of 600,000, the set combining some their greatest hits up to that point with a blistering run through the epochal Tommy and some new songs earmarked for their next album. Academy Award winning director Murray Lerner was there to capture the event for posterity and more recently Pete Townshend personally supervised the remixing of the sound. As Townshend has since opined, The Who were at the very top of their game as a live act at this stage of their career and it is immediately apparent when listening to or viewing this performance. Much more then the sum of their parts, they were able to produce a show of such dynamism and showmanship that picking highlights is nigh on impossible. It is, quite simply, all highlights: Townshend commanding the stage in his workman s clothes , all portentous power chords and windmilling right arm; John Entwistle, poker-faced and steady as a rock in a striking skeleton costume; Keith Moon, with his incessant banter, flailing like a madman behind the drums; and Roger Daltrey in fine voice, cast as the archetypal 70s rock divinity, volcanic blonde hair tumbling over his bare chest as he viciously twirls his microphone. This is the undiluted, absolute power of The Who at their live peak.

Nice they did play Anyway Anyhow Anywhere, Naked Eye, Good Looking Boy, Old Red Wine and Magic Bus.
This CD/DVD combo is a must for all WHO hard core fans and the new ones. Also highly recomendable are "Live in London", "Quadrophenia Live and More", Live at Shea Stadium (with Kenney Jones on drums), and the history about their managers, Lambert & Stamp. After seen this last one (Lambert & Stamp), you will understand why The Who, became the band they were and still are, even with only two surviving members of their most famous line up.
2 CD of live music real RAW power and brilliant concert footage
If you have not seen The Who on DVD before this will bring a big smile to your face, i found myself grinning for hours after.
You may guess that I really enjoyed this
