The Who - Quadrophenia Live Video

Biography

The Who are a four-piece mod/rock band whose first album, My Generation, bristled with attitude; the lyric "I hope I die before I get old" tapped into the disaffection felt by post-war baby boomers, helping to secure a loyal fanbase and establish the band at the forefront of the mod movement.

In the studio the band's innovative approach to recording helped to realise ... Read more in Amazon's The Who Store

Editorial Reviews

In 2012/2013, The Who embarked on the Quadrophenia and More Tour, performing their landmark rock opera in its entirety, marking the 40th anniversary of the original 1973 release of this double-album masterpiece. The critically acclaimed and highly successful tour closed at London's Wembley Arena.
Recorded on July 8, 2013, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON 2CD set features The Who in peak form, performing Quadrophenia from front to back, in its entirety, plus a special set of some of their all-time greatest hits. The audio captures the band's dynamic performance in front of their hometown crowd and features blistering performances of 'The Real Me', 'The Punk And The Godfather', 'Doctor Jimmy' and a powerful performance of 'Love Reign O'er Me'. In addition to their performance of Quadrophenia, the band tear through classic tracks such as 'Pinball Wizard', 'Who Are You', 'You Better You Bet', 'Baba O'Riley', 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and 'Tea & Theatre', from their 2006 release 'Endless Wire', with the intensity and power only The Who can conjure.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great release - ignore the whiners! June 11, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Well, after 40 years we finally have a live, official audio release of the The Who's 1973 masterpiece - "Quadrophenia". I purchased the boxed set which includes the Blu-ray video, the regular DVD, 2 CD audio and a 5.1 mix of the studio album. I think it's a highly enjoyable set - Roger's singing is surprisingly a little better than I expected, and Pete's licks are in tact. I truly can't understand some of the other reviews here - give it one star because you are tired of compilations and live albums?, Knock off a star because it does not include auto-rip? (I was actually able to download the tracks from Amazon for free before I actually rec'd the package), Give it two stars because the box set from two years ago did not have a complete 5.1 mix? Totally ridiculous. Reviewed on its own, this is a nice release. The sound is good, picture is nice, packaging is cool and it's a great live show of Quadrophenia for God sakes!! Any Who fan worth his or her salt has always wanted a nice live release of this show. Granted, We don't get John or Keith, but the tribute paid to them during the show I think worked ok. Also granted - the show is from 2013, and not 1973 - yes, there are side musicians etc.. but it's still a great, at least 4 star show - one of the more unique rock shows ever attempted and it's nicer than the video of the 1997 show which I believe was mono and certainly not the video quality of this new release. Encores are cool and if I was to complain about anything, it would be that they could have included the great Quadrophenia documentary that the BBC put together last year - it would have been a perfect bonus, but I am not going to knock it down to two stars because they didn't do something I would have liked LOL. It's great to finally get a 5.1 mix of the studio album which is included as a "bonus" to this live set. Yes, the full set of songs should have been included with the 2012 set, but at least we finally have it now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent! June 17, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Lifelong Who fans like me will buy this anyway and won't need a review from me to encourage them, but for what it's worth I think this is exceptionally good. It's very well produced, but most importantly the performance of the band is simply brilliant.

I was a little sceptical about whether this would really be any good. A fine show, certainly, and Pete and Roger can always be relied upon but I did wonder about the overall effect. In fact, in places I prefer this to the original album - something I never thought I'd say after 40 years of loving the original. Roger's voice has matured and mellowed somewhat and his diction isn't as crisp as it was but, by God, that heart-racing power is still all there when he needs it. The high notes in Is It In My Head, for example, are still spine-tingling and I'm One is an absolute masterpiece here, I think, with thrilling, thoughtful vocals, some fine acoustic guitar from Pete and superb work from the rest of the band. Age has brought a greater depth and sense of meaning to their performances without losing one jot of their sheer visceral power and excitement. I'm thrilled and a little surprised at how good this is.

I also think special mention should go to Scott Devours on drums. I didn't think it possible for anyone to replace Keith Moon, and in a sense it isn't - he was a unique one-off. Devours has the sense not to try to imitate the inimitable but he gets the sense and feel of the man somehow, and although the drumming isn't Moon and never could be, it feels exactly right and I think it's a brilliant performance which really adds to the set.

The sheer impact of the final three tracks of Quadrophenia - 5.15, The Rock and Love Reign O'er Me - is stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars love, heartbreak July 2, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It blew me away. Reminded me of how I embraced this music 40 years ago. I think it ranks with Beethoven's 9th, Mozart's Requiem, Schubert's last sonata, and the other greats of classical music; it's as vital as Beatles' Abbey Road, and Dylan's Blood on the Tracks, Clapton's Layla, the Stones' Satisfaction, Zep's Stairway. Who has not had these feelings of alienation, loneliness, anger, frustration, teenage angst (and middle-aged anxiety!), fear, love, heartbreak, deep sadness, hopelessness, and yet transcendence as well? It is all here in a couple of hours of greatness, a burst of brilliance from a truly great composer -- Pete Townshend. You love The Wall? Listen to this, first. It tells the same story but more beautifully, more melodically, and more viscerally. I prefer the original studio recording, or the amazing box set from 2011, but this live recording from 2013 is like dessert after a masterpiece main course. Pete, you have gone through hell, but you have also been to heaven. And you gave us a taste of it in this awesome opus.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Ol' Codgers Still Have It June 19, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I'll make this brief since so many others have covered the bases pretty well. Rogers' voice has improved remarkably since he underwent surgery to remove polyps on his vocal chords. Pete is well, Pete. his voice isn't quite what it was but he can still play up a storm. I don't think there are too many guitarists that can do windmills like him. The backing band was ideal for performing a piece of this nature. Kudos to Pino Palladino and Scott Devours for really anchoring the rhythm section. It was nice seeing Simon Townshend again as I remember buying a couple of his LP's " back in the day ". The only problem I've found is that when I import it into my iTunes, disc one is fine but after I import disc two the entire running order is jumbled. I noticed that all the titles on disc one have a [ ]
around them while disc two has standard parentheses. I then went and manually changed all the parentheses on disc two but to no avail. I've been trying to import this into iTunes so that I can import this to my iPhone but in the proper running order. If there's anyone out there that has been able to rectify this, I'd appreciate some help. I realize that corporate America wants to get every dime they can
but the folks at Universal figure that they'll encode the discs to prevent duplication of discs. I can understand all that but all I'm asking for is to be able to hear the discs in the proper running order and be able to put it in my iPhone. If anyone can help I'd appreciate hearing from you.

Why would you buy
This DVD is a keeper. The band sounds great, 5.15 sizzles and the archival big-screen footage of Moon and Entwistle blended with the live band are great. There's very little footage of the "new performers" (almost no footage of bassist Pino Palladino). You being a fan of the original... Read More
