Good representation of Whostory.

This video/DVD contains a lot of fantastic snapshots of The Who's performance history. The footage and sound are superb considering the sources they came from. As most Who fans know, the performances get less spontaneous and turn into arena rock once Keith Moon dies. Personally, I can't stand the '79, '82, and '89 shows that are in the video. Nevertheless, they are part of the history and are represented well. What this film does not tackle is the personal lives of the four members. It acknowledges some of their issues, but mostly things that happened on-stage. Also, some elements are curiously omitted: there's no mention of "Lifehouse", Townshend's aborted project around that period which evolved into "Who's Next", perhaps their greatest album. They had restricted use of cameras at the time, but there were later performances of those songs which are still not shown. Also, there's no mention of the Cincinatti Riverfront Coliseum tragedy where 11 fans were trampled at the door. Anyway, this is just nitpicking. All in all, this is a fantastic film. Highlights include Keith Moon's drumming in "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere", the ensemble in "A Quick One", Townshend and Moon's awesome collaboration in "Young Man Blues", Entwistle's bass work and Moonie's vocals in "Bell Boy"... the list goes on and on.
