As a big Who fan I have been dying for any concerts filmed between 71 and September 78. So far the only one we had is Kilburn from '77. Which was good looking because it was shot on film but the Who really should have practiced more. A film that could have been their Last Waltz came out as an after thought. Well the Who are on fire here but this time you have to forgive the video and to a certain degree the sound. This was taken from video shot to put up on screen during the show so there are not a lot of cameras and they are not maned by professional camera men. But it is above average for the time. The sound is a little boomie at times and it sounds like they used volume control on the audio which brings the audio down a little after any major volume changes. There is a reason why there is no Blu ray version. Now negatives aside this show rocks and for someone like me who did not see the Who in their hey day (I saw the deaf man tour in 89 as my first who show) this is a dream come true. Seeing the original Who at their peek is a dream come true and if there are more of this quality I really hope they release them. If you are a Grateful Dead fan this would be the Who's equivalent of their "Veiw From The Vault" series.
If you need perfect picture and Audio pick up Live At Kilburn or one of their Blu Ray / DVD's from their post Moon Period. If you want musical performance get this one.
End Note: If you have Thin Lizzy's "Are You Ready" DVD that is about the same quality as this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not much better than the bootlegs Oct. 14 2012
By Gis A. Bun TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've seen this show previously as a bootleg DVD [called "The Summit 1975"]. Same footage but cleaned up. But even then, there was only so much that could be done. Video is in 4:3, a times a bit fuzzy and limited number of cameras. In some cases [particularly at the beginning], you will see the band just from the left side - thereby seeing just the side of John's face - when in view. In some cases you will see stills [unsure if missing video, bad video or just by design].
The audio is only in stereo and seems to me it has a bit of an odd sound for the vocals. Sort of like sining through the tube of a roll of paper towels or something.
There are no extras to this release [odd for any release]. Even the bootleg had a pile of extras. :-)
The band is at the top of their game witha 25 track set. Not a bum track in the set. And of course some wacky comments from Keith.
[Judging from the quality, not surprised there is no Blu-ray release.]

2.0 out of 5 stars Has a real 'bootleg" feel to it... July 17 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Been a fan for years, which is why this product got that second star.

The 'Oo were a powerful band in their prime, and this video does nothing to highlight that. One camera, one location, panning and zooming, that's it. It has a very low budget vibe more appropriate to a historical document of the early punk era than this subject.

I gave my copy to a buddy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun show! Oct. 12 2012
By J. R. Cagle - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
First off to some who are griping about the audio and picture quality this was filmed in 1975 and NEVER intended for official release. It was the arenas two camera system so yes its blurry and tends to focus on the front of the band mainly Roger and Pete and less on Moonie and the OX. I deduct a star for that but its the limitations of 1970's filming. Once you get over that its a pretty good show. Although not a LEEDS or even Kilburn performance this shows a band clearly having fun and glad to be touring America again. I for one am glad I bought the DVD. I tip my hat off to the people who made sure this actually got filmed warts and all. I consider it a ticket to the past that I am glad to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Hesitate Oct. 15 2012
By a music fan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This show has been available on bootleg for many years and now has an official release. The picture quality is marginally better than the bootleg version, but the sound has been improved considerably by Jon Astley's restoration and the 'missing' audio from Squeeze Box has been reinstated. Nevertheless, the picture and sound quality are inferior to modern standards and the camera work is basic to say the least. However, it must be remembered that this is a historic record of the band's classic line up in full flight from one of the strongest periods for live performances in its career. The technical quality of the recording shows its limitations, but the performance is a real treat. This should be one of those DVDs that is played to show anyone unfamiliar with The Who's work just what the fuss was all about and why they were often rated as the best live act of their era.

5.0 out of 5 stars At the top of their game Oct. 6 2012
By Christopher Hartlaub - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
One of the best Who concerts on video.They were
clearly at the top of their game.Keith was showing no signs that he was in decline,
and Roger and Pete sounded great vocally .
The mix and remastering are superb and a welcome addition to the Who catalog.
Buy it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome and Unexpected Gift from The Who! Oct. 28 2012
By BillyMartin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's beyond my understanding how anyone can criticize this!

What you get when you play this DVD is an amazing opportunity see a completely new Who concert (I've never seen the bootleg). This was filmed almost FORTY years ago! People were still playing music on 8-track tapes at that time, yet some here bash the quality of the disc. What were you expecting? Do you complain about photographs from the 1800s because they're in black and white? I'm 43 years old and fortunate enough to have seen The Who 6 or 7 times (most with John!), as well as Roger on his own twice. I would walk through fire for more DVDs like this one!! Just the chance to hear AND SEE something new with Keith Moon should be enough for anyone to rate this FIVE Stars! I'm Thrilled!! Keep these "poor quality" DVDs coming, and I'll die a happy man!

5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly the "definitive" classic Who Nov. 8 2012
By Jesse Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I reviewed The Who's 1970 "Isle of Wight" DVD about a year or so ago. At that time I felt that it was the best example of a classic Who concert. While that may still be true to some degree, I must give a slight edge to this performance for one simple reason: the setlist.

Isle of Wight took place in 1970. But The Who's true genius, or shall I say the album that I feel launched them into classic rock legend status, came in 1971. Yes, "Tommy" was brilliant and we can't ignore the early hits by any measure, but "Who's Next" is what I consider to be their finest hour, with "Tommy" and "Quadrophenia" following close behind.

Here we get a partial performance of "Tommy" but we also get tracks from "Who's Next" and other then-recent works. This adds a better representation of what the classic lineup were capable of doing, and a better selection of the big hits (namely "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again") that remain fan favorites and classic rock anthems today.

And may I add, The Who are on fire here. They simply rock, pure and simple. The sheer energy that comes from the stage is phenomenal and power-packed. This performance is a gem to be treasured by every Who fan.
