I remember the original VHS of it and liking it. Apparantly this recut does a better job of showing the band and I think replicates the actual concert better. It was exclusive to the Later Years boxset, reviews of that set may shed some light.In case people are interested, Pink Floyd The Delicate Sound Of Thunder is getting a new expanded release in November. I pre-ordered it from Amazon. Not familiar with this concert- never saw the original video, or heard the CD.
I forgot about this one but yeah, I love it. I'm sure the Isle Of Wight disc was already mentioned. Arguably their greatest performance and Moon is in fine form.I'd add to the indispensable performances the Blu ray of 'The Who Live at Kilburn', a 1977 especially staged performance to get live footage for the documentary 'The Kids are Alright', and with the very last footage filmed of drummer Keith Moon.
This is an especially choice disc because it also features as an extra feature an unbelievably wonderful historic 16mm film record of their 1969 gig at London's Coliseum, which included huge swathes of music from their newly-recorded 'Tommy'.
This is an extraordinary record of The Who' at their absolute best ... and is especially precious as my wife and I had premium hand-chosen seats at the concert ... choosing just to the right of stage centre, about 10 rows back, right in front of Pete Townsend. Those were the days ...... the pic I use as my id here was taken the same year!
I have Neil Young's RETURN TO GREENDALE on order, there's a fancy edition with a bluray of the concert with actors playing the parts of the characters. I don't know. Honestly, it sounds kind a bad (the youtube video is kind of ridiculous), it's expensive, and Greendale isn't my favourite Neil Young project but I'm such a mark I'm going for it.
Nearly bit on the LOU REED NEW YORK 40th to get that disc of the New York album live but held off. I love the record, but not as much as I love Neil Young's weird concept album I barely listen too apparently. Hoping it gets a break out release at some point or I can find the set dirt cheap.
