I love the album THE WHO AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT FESTIVAL 1970 which was the first release of Live Tommy featuring the original lineup. This was also released as a video, and I was able to see it on the big screen in NYC several years ago.

Also I just got the Woodstock/Isle of Wight 1969 videotape recording on DVD. The Tommy era 1969-70 was probably the height of their live career.

Me too! I just read that two of their classic concerts (Kilburn 1977 and London 1969) are coming out on DVD in November! The Image Entertainment website isn't working this morning, but here's their info on the release


They are one of the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. For over four decades, they have changed modern music as we know it. But some of their most famous performances have never been released... until now.

On December 15, 1977, The Who performed before a select invited audience at the Gaumont State Theatre in Kilburn, North London, to record a concert for Jeff Stein's film, The Kids Are Alright, which turned out to be one of the last live performances by drummer Keith Moon. Shot in 35mm, this holy grail for fans has been digitally restored and remastered in high-definitiion for the ultimate The Who experience.

This 2-DVD set also includes The Who's powerhouse London Coliseum gig from 1969, a never-before-seen rarity and one of the band's personal favorites.

Take an amazing journey with The Who like you've never seen or heard them before, featuring their greatest hits and hours of incredible footage! It's the rock discovery of the year!

Two incredible concerts - totaling 138 minutes!
Kilburn Songs: "Can't Explain," "Substitute," "Baba O'Reilly (Teenage Wasteland)," "My Wife / Going Mobile," "Behind Blue Eyes," "Dreaming from the Waist," "Pinball Wizard," "I'm Free," "Tommy's Holiday Camp," "Summertime Blues," "Shakin' All Over," "My Generation," "Join Together," "Who Are You?," "Won't Get Fooled Again"
London Coliseum Songs: "Heaven and Hell," "Can't Explain," "Fortune Teller," "Tattoo," "Young Man Blues," "A Quick One While He's Away," "Happy Jack," "I'm a Boy," "I'm Free," "Tommy's Holiday Camp," "See Me, Feel Me," "Summertime Blues," "Shakin' All Over," "My Generation"

Plus 70 minutes of rare Coliseum bonus tracks and extended versions including the first-ever long performance of Tommy: "A Quick One While He's Away," "Overture," "It's a Boy, " "1921," "Amazing Journey," "Christmas," "Acid Queen," "Pinball Wizard," "Do You Think It's Alright," "Fiddle About," "Tommy Can You Hear Me?," "There's a Doctor," "Go to the Mirror," "Smash the Mirror," "Miracle Cure," "Sally Simpson," "Tommy's Holiday Camp," ""I'm Free," "We're Not Gonna Take It"

They've been playing an edited version of this show on PBS, minus "Going Mobile" & "Dreaming From the Waist."

This show was filmed to get footage for "The Kids are Allright." They hadn't played live in about a year. At one point Pete remarks to the crowd that they should have sent the camera men home because "there's nothing worth filming here."

It's a sloppy show for sure but features a nice "My Wife" and the "Who Are You" is an early, incomplete version incorporated into the "My Generation" medley.

Anyway, it's Keith's second to last show, they played another to nail down the footage that appears in the movie.

The Who's ISLE OF WIGHT DVD was re-released not too long ago with a few added songs and some remastering. I really should check that out. I love the CD, BUT the original DVD had such bad editing, so many times when the music did NOT match up with the video AT ALL, that I found it hard to watch and enjoy.

One of my early favorites. They have never gone out of favor with my ears. One of my joys in life is exposing my children to different bands, all kinds. They both dig The Who. The '77 show on PBS is way cool.

I listened to "Who's Next" and "Tommy" today while working on the next HTN - Keith Moon sounds like two drummers - just amazing

I know I've posted this before but it deserves another mention. Moon's drumming on "Bargain" is "just amazing." Take a listen then tell me if I'm wrong

I recently posted the thread below regarding Keith Moon's death 30th anniversary.

http://www.allmanbrothersband.com/modules.php?op=modload&name=XForum&am p;file=viewthread&tid=80210#pid

I called him rock's greatest drummer. Other people thought Ginger Baker was better but I'm squarely in Keith's corner. Ginger Baker's career sort of took a nosedive after Blind Faith broke up. Keith was actively drumming with the Who till he passed away. Therefore people were still taking notice of him in 1978 and what was Baker doing?

Saw the Who twice on their tour last year. In September Roger could still sing, but Pete hadn't warmed up yet - it was the very beginning of the tour. In November Pete was on fire by sadly 60 year old voices have a hard time holding up over the length of a tour.

I still remember driving up to Saratoga (72 I blieve) and hearing Miles and Miles come on the radio as we entered the parking lot. Pete kicked someone off stage in mid-windmill.

Wow,a bit defensive are we? Sorry the difference of opinion upset you....But,folk's are free to disagree around here.Yes,Keith kept actively drumming w/the WHO till his death. & people did take notice of him...sadly,not just because of his drumming. Unfortunately, some of the reasons people took notice of him were the very things that did him in.
I'm not knocking him at all...I was one that said he was'nt rock's "Greatest Drummer",& I'll stand by that statement forever.He was good,yes...great,maybe..but...the "greatest"? Not to me.....what's so wrong w/that? It's just an opinion...
Also,I don't think Ginger Baker was the "greatest drummer" either....I liked his playing better than Moon's..but again,just an opinion....Too say that Baker took a nose dive...a bit harsh,IMO...he was still a respected drummer...fronted his own band,& played Jazz w/many different musicians.....he stayed playing as well..he may not have been in the limelite,but he sure as heck did'nt take a nose dive....again,just my opinion.
I respect your opinion,very much so,just disagree...does'nt make me right by a long shot...btw....I'd take John Bonham over either one of them on his worst day...& I did'nt even think about him in the original thread when i posted.

Was fortunate enough to catch the Who at Mid-South Coliseum in Memphis back in '71 on the tour for Who's Next. One of the top five concerts I've ever seen.

I have a website to display live concert photos I've taken over the past 30+ years. Among the galleries is The Who's 1982 appearance in Birmingham, AL on their first "farewell" tour. To take a look, point your browser to http://www.billallenphotos.com. Once you enter the site, click on Gallery, then click on Music and scroll down almost to the end and click on The Who - 11/30/1982 - Birmingham AL link and click.

Enjoy!

Bill

Who Are You.....Moonies last.

Look at the album cover. Keith is sitting in a chair turned backwards. On it, written in stenciled lettering..

NOT TO BE TAKEN AWAY

Weird.

After seeing their special on VH1 Rock Honors, I came to a new appreciation for their music. It's kind of obvious, but I always liked Ox and Keith's playing, but didn't realize the level it was on.

Could anyone recommend a good live Who for me? I'll be honest, a greatest hits live with the original 4 is really what I'm looking for...couldn't find it on Amazon or I-Tunes, any help? Then kind of a "second cut" for when I tire of that.

Thanks

Greg

Hmmm. I never said the difference of opinion upset me. In fact on the thread I mentioned that I don't mind dissenting opinions at all. However I still feel that Moon is better than Baker. That's all.

So no need for you to say sorry!

"By Numbers" is my current fav these days.

That, and I have had "Face Dances" and "It's Hard" in
heavy rotation as well.

Have always loved the Who! Anytime I hear Baba O'Reilly I'm immediately taken back to high school - it just seemed to be an anthem for our lifes and times then. Was lucky to catch the Who live both pre and post Keith Moon and these guys just kick it all over the place. Haven't seen them since Entwistle's sad death. Who's Next, My Generation, Live at Leeds, and Isle of Wight are my faves and I also love Quadrophenia.
