A very good collection-great shame about the lack of subtitle tracks!
on 27 June 2017
I very rarely give five stars to anything without subtitle tracks, but this is an exception. It consists of 2 DVD's, one being the Story of the Who and how they formed in South London to create their own Rock style. There are separate interviews with each band member, including the late Keith Moon. and the late John Entwistle. There are also interviews with rock contemporaries, friends and family. This is just the first disc "The Story of the Who".
On the 2nd disc ""Amazing Journey"- Six Quick Ones, we see into Ealing Art School. through the bullseye and Mod look, and into Pop Art. We then hear of how the Who became visual as well as musical. We also see filmmaker D.A.Pennybaker filming the Who in the studio recording "Real Good Looking Boy". We also see very rare concert footage. There are four films, but "Amazing Journey" is a film in six separate parts, which deals again with the Who in depth.
There are also 2 massive DVD Bonuses. One is the "Scrapbook". which is again the story of the Who. Cincinnati concert (tragic) in 1979 is also covered, and we hear about Pete Townsend writing "Won't Get Fooled Again".
The other bonus is long lost footage of the band performing as "The High Numbers" at the Railway Hotel. This was shot in1964 at the Railway Hotel, and was thought lost until recently found. This was filmed by Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp. This is the earliest piece of film of the Who known to exist!
The only thing that lets it down is there is no subtitle tracks. For Who fans, it is a massive piece of History, and one which they should be part of their collection. It is well worth noting that when it was shown on TV, there were subtitles available!
