4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the other one, December 24, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Unlike the other reviewer here, I think this is superior to Ben Marshall's The Who 50 Years. They're both good, but this one has more comprehensive coverage of the last twenty-five years of the band. Ben Marshall's skips right over the QUADROPHENIA tours of 1996 and 1997, for example, while Mat Snow gives those tours ample coverage. Those are the first Who tours I was fortunate enough to witness. They were a rebirth of the band, being their first tours with Zak Starkey. The addition of Zak Starkey on drums was just what they needed, and The Who remains an incredibly potent, dynamic live force to this very day thanks in no small part to his contribution. Thank you Mat Snow for a wonderful book. In the studio or on the stage, The Who are the best rock band ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fifty Years: Still The Best, December 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They should not be this outstanding at this point in their career, but they are. God bless The Who. Love the set list. Roger is in superb voice throughout. Pete and Zak ROCK. Excellent support from Pino and Simon and the other musicians. This was a special night from what is simply the best rock band of them all.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Homage to Steve" is incomplete, June 17, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this so I could have the 1979 Universal Amphitheatre performance from Homage to Steve on DVD. I have it on VHS. IT'S INCOMPLETE ON THIS DVD. I vividly remembered Steve Martin doing shadow puppets with his hands while he was wearing the bunny ears. It was hilarious. That part is cut from this DVD version. Just to make sure my memory wasn't playing tricks on me, I broke out my VCR and popped in the VHS, and sure enough it was there. I haven't done a complete comparison, so there might be other stuff cut, too.

In my opinion, that performance is Steve Martin's finest hour and I'm extremely disappointed that they have edited content from it for this DVD release. I don't know why they would do that. It sucks and I'm docking this collection two stars for it. The VHS version I have is called Steve Martin Live! in "Homage To Steve" and The Absent Minded Waiter. I guess we'll have to wait even longer for it to be brought to DVD (or Blu-ray, for that matter) in its glorious entirety.

This review is from: Neverending Story Auryn Pendant
Frankly, the photo does not do this justice. It looks much better than I thought it would, comes in a nifty little pouch and has a nice, long chain, too. The craftsmanship is very high for the price, and the size makes it something you can actually wear if you choose, and have it not look gaudy. I'm very pleased with this piece.

I bought this just so I would qualify for free shipping. It's a good toothbrush. I have brushed my teeth with it on several occasions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazypants Crazypants and the Crazypants of Crazypants, December 28, 2013
This book reads almost, but not entirely, unlike a blending of the stylings of Monty Python, William Faulkner, Steve Martin, Douglas Adams, William Shakespeare, Hulk Hogan and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is a tale of inspired lunacy from the mind and bowels and perhaps even the gall bladder of Michael Parker. I could not get out of the Table of Contents without laughing. And then there was the Table of Noncontents, which were even funnier. And then there was the Table of Continents, of which my favorite part was Millard Fillmore. And then there is a whole book of inanity with jokes piled upon jokes like has probably never been done before in the history of words, words, words. And then there are footnotes, one of which assures us that The Who Sell Out is the best Who album ever made. Which is probably true.

5.0 out of 5 stars Curious about The Who?, June 24, 2009
If you're looking for an inexpensive and brief introduction to The Who, this collection is perfect. You get five of their sixties singles plus five seventies cuts. The versions of "Who Are You" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" are the full-length album versions, so this isn't just a light-weight trawl through the hits. Obviously, a band with the stature of The Who has many, many more essential recordings, but this is an excellent primer. Get it if you want a concise sampling of The Who's studio work. Then, if you like what you hear, move on to the rest of their stellar catalogue. The Who have twenty-five songs that hit either the USA top forty or the UK top twenty. You're getting ten of them. They also have plenty more outstanding songs that weren't hits, either because they weren't released as singles, like "Baba O'Riley", or because they simply didn't chart very high, like "Love, Reign O'er Me". Dive in. This collection is the kiddie pool. We all have to start somewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic, June 12, 2009
This review is from: Taller Children (Audio CD)
This album is a pop masterpiece. I have to go back to 1967 and Love's FOREVER CHANGES and The Who's THE WHO SELL OUT for anything comparable to this album's wonderful marriage of creativity, melodic brilliance and inspired musicianship. One thing TALLER CHILDREN has on those two glorious releases is Elizabeth Ziman's alternately ethereal and earthy (and always angelic) vocals. Her voice is an extraordinary instrument - dancing from playful verses to positively soaring bridges and choruses. It's a voice tailor-made for lullabies, pressed into the service of majestic pop. Listening to her take off on HIT THE WALL and the epic title track recalls that wonderful place where the Beach Boys recorded GOD ONLY KNOWS and the Kinks recorded WATERLOO SUNSET. Such magical listening experiences are exceptionally rare. This album is bursting with them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars, yes, but DON'T BUY IT, November 19, 2008
Yes, this is an incredible Who concert. No, don't buy it. Make sure you buy the "special edition" instead because it contains two songs inexplicably cut from this release: "Substitute" and "Naked Eye". It says it's the complete concert. They're lying. The special edition isn't the complete concert, either, but at least it's all of the existing footage. The double CD set contains the entire concert. It's a shame that "Amazing Journey/Sparks" apparently was not filmed or has been lost. The performance of it on the CD set is extraordinary.

Screw Eagle Rock Entertainment and Murray Lerner for me having to buy this concert yet again just to get two songs that, by your own product's description, should have been included from the beginning. Your soaking of hardcore fans like myself is deplorable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert! The Who's rebirth!, November 15, 2006
This review is from: The Who - The Vegas Job (DVD)
Townshend's return to being The Who's sole electric guitarist. The way it ought to be. This is a great rock concert. Can't beat the price.
