Product Description

The story of the band Keith Richards called 'the best rock 'n' roll band in the world'. This 2-disc set charts the band's rise from their early beginnings playing in working men's clubs, to their appearance at the Woodstock concert, Live Aid and beyond. Along with blistering live performances and devising the 'rock opera', they were 'the godfathers of punk', and remain hugely influential. Includes interviews with remaining members Pete Towshend and Roger Daltrey. Disc 2 includes rarities and previously unseen footage of the band playing live at the Railway Hotel in 1964, the earliest recorded film of the band performing.

From Amazon.co.uk

Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who is a very satisfying, two-disc set anchored by an excellent documentary directed by Murray Lerner (The Other Side of the Mirror: Bob Dylan at the Newport Folk Festival), whose 1970 footage of the band in concert appears in Lerner’s Message to Love: The Isle of Wight Festival. Lerner’s new film includes recent and extensive interviews with surviving Who members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, who candidly recall every chapter of the group’s career, from childhood to the premature deaths of drummer Keith Moon and bassist John Entwistle, and beyond to Daltrey and Townshend’s continuing, now-autumnal collaboration. Much of what is said and captured in Amazing Journey has been noted before in myriad ways (including the Who’s 1979 autobiographical feature The Kids Are Alright), but the older Daltrey and Townshend get, the richer their insights into Who history. Lerner’s organisation of sub-topics and material also makes Amazing Journey powerful and resonant, including the Who’s earliest period as an emerging club band (called the High Numbers) emphasising rhythm and blues, and Townshend’s gradual transformation into a songwriter trying to break traditional pop forms. Key relationships are examined and explored, but of special note is Daltrey’s and Townshend’s separate, fascinating assessments of the former’s evolution as a vocalist and frontman. (Each maintains that it was Daltrey’s personal connection to the central character in Tommy that turned him into an expansive, charismatic singer.)

A second disc contains superb outtakes from Amazing Journey, with an emphasis on the wisdom of Daltrey and Townshend, both in their 60s, examining their individual artistries. Who fans and musicians alike will certainly enjoy an exciting analysis, from the likes of the Edge, Simon Townshend (Pete’s brother and member of the Who’s backing band) and Eddie Vedder, of Townshend’s gifts as a guitarist. A wonderful mini-documentary co-directed by D.A. Pennebaker (Don’t Look Back) captures a recording session from 2003, and footage of the High Numbers in a 1964 performance (from an aborted film by the Who’s late co-manager, Kit Lambert) is a remarkable artifact. --Tom Keogh
