The songs and story of The Who's classic album. Who's Next is viewed by many as the greatest testament to the songwriting talent of Pete Townshend and the musical power of The Who. When the album was released in 1971, it climbed to the Top Five on the Billboard chart and remained in the Top 40 for five months. The story of how The Who came to record the album is told by group members Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle, together with contributions by those who were close to the group during this recording, also providing insight into the importance of the late great Keith Moon to the success of The Who. The songs recorded for the Who's Next album are featured here, including such classics as "Won't Get Fooled Again", "Baba O'Riley" and "Behind Blue Eyes". Included in this documentary programme are previously unseen performances of songs from the album that prove the longevity and lasting appeal of Who's Next, a true classic album. (61 minutes.)

I have a book from a similar "Making Of" series detailing Led Zeppelin's classic Fourth Album, and a whole chapter is devoted to each song; I think I was expecting something more detailed along these lines.
Good...interesting...but could have been a whole lot better.
The songs are all top-notch classic Who songs - that's the triumph. But the only real failure is that Townshend has, by his own admission, failed to get his concept for the 'Lifehouse' album / film project across to anyone outside the band for a great many years.
Townshend has said many times that the project caused him a great deal of personal anguish. However, The Who remember the album's creation here with great affection. The creation of the songs on the album - AND the songs central to the 'Lifehouse' concept that failed to make the album is detailed here, along with contemporary performances, most of which have not ever surfaced elsewhere
Some of the songs are still featured to this day in their live shows and have lost not one iota of their strength or emotion. Highly recommended.
Not so...........Almost the entire running time of 1 hour is interviews, which provide an insight into the CD.
But..........How much better this project would have been should some of the CD Tracks had of been included with what's almost certain to be available including the video. The few short grabs are a big let-down!
