Editorial Reviews

Blu-Ray pressing. The Who... smashed guitars... demolished hotel rooms...cars in swimming pools... the legendary band in their most explosive performances. Re-live the glory from their pre-Who days as The High-Numbers to their final appearance with notorious madman and drummer extraordinaire Keith Moon. From raucous rehearsals to major festivals... from rock operas to rock anthems... from 'My Generation' to 'Won't Get Fooled Again'. See it...feel it...hear it. Witness the greatest band to ever storm a rock 'n' roll stage in the classic film The Kids Are Alright restored to its original mind numbing assault on the senses, digitally re-mastered in a high definition transfer with pristine 5.1 surround sound. For rock fans everywhere this is the ultimate rock film that won't f-f-fade away.

Customer Reviews

The video and sound have both been remastered and there are great special features.
DaffyD
This film is essentially a montage of performance footage from the band's beginning to about 1978, interspliced with interview segments and some voice-overs.

It's enough to make me scream in frustration, because I know how good rock and roll can really be, and THIS DVD is it.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
After having seen several other major DVD opportunities get squandered (The Beatles's HARD DAYS NIGHT leaps to mind), it is an utter delight to watch/listen to this DVD. It is great on several levels: the original film was one of the best collections of live performances in the history of rock, the reissue has dramatically improved the look and sound of the film, and the Special Edition extra disc includes some truly wonderful features. This ought to be the model for all future reissues, such as when/if they reissue the Rolling Stones's TWENTY-FIVE BY FIVE.
Only a couple of years ago I was trying to explain to my daughter that in the sixties and seventies, the Who were full-fledged members of the rock Pantheon, as revolutionary and crucial as the Stones, the Beatles, or Led Zeppelin. For some reason, they went into a bit of a decline in the general musical consciousness (I found kids my daughter's age might not know of them at all, whereas they knew the other aforementioned bands quite well). Thanks to some timely re-released and a tragic tour that saw the death of John Entwhistle, their star truly seems to be on the ascendant again. This album is crucial for proving what all of us at the time knew: the Who was without question one of the very greatest live bands of all time.
The Who was an amazing band, full of paradoxes. Roger Daltrey was one of the great front men in the history of rock, and Pete Townshend a crack songwriter and arguably the most entertaining to watch guitarist of all time. Yet, the lead instruments in the band, almost unique in rock, were Keith Moon and his maniacally abused drum kit and John Entwhistle's bass, both of them among the top two or three of all time on their instruments, if not the best.

If you didn't already know better, you'd swear this was one of those masterful Disney Platinum Edition restoration and packaging jobs. Amazing things were done with both the video and audio to make a great movie even better. I have always enjoyed this movie, in the theater, on Laserdisc, but this DVD makes me feel like I'm seeing a whole brand new film. I can't believe how good the audio on the old TV clips sound, and the newer concert footage just couldn't be better. This much care for the fans and the end product put a lot of newer music releases to shame (not naming any names--Sir McCartney.)
This is the way a Rock movie should be done overall--songs play through and no one talks over them! The camera edits don't jump and cut every 3 seconds either. I love having the multi-camera angles on the two songs. Now I can just watch Keith and still not know how he plays like that. Even better is having solo OX bass audio to enjoy (he doesn't do that much in Baba unfortunately, but Won't Get Fooled is incredible.) I don't know who it was that ever started that nonsense about the Stones being the "Greatest Rock Band", but all the proof you need that it has ALWAYS been The Who--is right here.
No more DVDs should be allowed to be released before they live up to this quality standard.

Format: DVD
Nearly every DVD released these days screams "Special Edition", only to prompt a puzzled "And this particular edition is 'special' because...?!" reaction about 95% of the time. On occasion, however, the movie studios slip up and actually make good on the full promise of digitized audio/video restoration. The 2003 DVD version of director/superfan Jeff Stein's labor of love rockumentary about the Who, "The Kids Are Alright" is a perfect example of "promise fulfilled". If you are only familiar with the once-in-a-blue-moon VH-1 screening, with its tattered print, muffled audio and 600 commercial interruptions, you are in for a real treat. Fans of the film won't notice a lot of difference on the early archival footage; you have to consider the source (usually fuzzy b&w T.V. kinoscopes), although audio on these clips has been noticably upgraded. The restoration shines brightest on the late 70's footage that Stein staged and photographed exculsively for the film; image and sound are breathtaking, particularly for the performances of "Baba O'Reilly" and "Won't Get Fooled Again". With the passing of John Entwistle, this footage has become even more of a precious document, showing the original classic lineup in majestic performance probably only months before Keith Moon's unfortunate demise. A plethora of extras on Disc 2 will please the hardcore Who devotee. A must-have for classic rockers.

Format: DVD
The producers of The Who's "The Kids Are Alright" final debut on DVD went all out to compose a masterpiece.
This is everything one would want in a DVD package. They don't call it "Special Edition" for nothing!
1. Nice hardcover slipcase to put your DVD cover in.
2. A nice booklet of photos, commentary from the director and producer, and liner notes of each track.
3. 2 DVDs... the first containing the movie in glorious hi-def. color/B&W, 5.1 surroundsound. Also includes audio commentary by director Jeff Stein, and subtitles of where each performance comes from.
4. The second DVD filled with "extras". Contains a "Restoration process" documentary, 6 camera angles of the tracks "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again", those 2 songs with just Entwisle's bass track, 2 quizes with prizes!, hidden gems, as well as an interview with Jeff Stein, photos of the Who, and an audio/visual comparision between the VHS (old) version of TKAA and the DVD version.
As for the movie itself what can I say? The ultimate rock and roll documentary. Even if you are not a big "Who" fan, you can appreciate the band more by watching this documentary. The color is superb, the sound is phenomenal for old footage. Oh and I almost forgot, the producers restored the movie to its orignal theatrical length!
The perfect DVD!
A++ all the way.

Kids are alright Blu-ray vs dvd
Blu-Ray has uncompressed audio as well. Unfortunately it looks like none of the bonus features that were on the 2nd disc of the two-disc DVD set are included on the Blu-Ray. Doesn't make sense to me as there should have been plenty of room on the disc to fit these features. Maybe they are... Read More
