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.

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.]

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.

It's The Who in their prime. Yeah, the picture and sound aren't the best, but one can still feel the power of The Oo!

The Who were the best during those years. Great show! I really enjoyed it. My friends were amazed too. Thank you.
