Customer Review

on 9 June 2010
The music on this disc is fantastic. Its in full 5.1 surround sound (There is a 2.0 option)But the picture lets it down. Not due to poor quality, no the picture is pin sharpe upscaled through my Hi def TV. The problem for me is the way it has been edited. It display's as a very wide narrow letterbox (what a waste of screen)
The band members are filmed very close up with no long shots of the whole stage. There are some great supporting musicians Jon Carin on keyboards etc who bearly get a look in.
Zak Starky on drums gets plenty of coverage but he's no Kieth Moon!
What you also get is lots of screen time taken up by the rear film projections that played above the stage of an actor playing Jimmy who narrates the story along with footage from the Quadrophenia feature film and news reel.

Billy Idol as the Ace face and PJ Proby as the old rocker are both good.
I just would have liked a few full stage shots to take in the full effect.

By the way i would say that from the one or two side shot glimpse's we do get that this was filmed at London's Royal Albert Hall. But there is no clue on the pack.
There is also an interative chat track with Pete and Roger super imposed over the show.
So all in all an enjoyable disc with a few niggles.
