A True Rock Band,
This review is from: The Who: Live in Texas 75 (DVD)
This DVD is more like a high class bootleg or a low budget professional recording.
For the first 4 numbers the camera is shot from only one side of the stage. At first I thought is that it?
no other angles but finally they actually shoot from the other side & zoom in time to time.
Other thing is the stop action or freeze frame & the slow motion effect as the song is going on.
What's that the special effects? Leave it alone & let's see them perform.
They're so busy w/ the effects they miss the part where Pete leaps across the stage as Daltrey screams near the end
of "Won't Get Fooled Again" instead you just see Pete landing behind Roger.
Keith Moon is funny as you can hear him talking in between songs over Pete.
One part he comes from behind the drums to front stage taking the mike from Roger saying
"I like to play 17 songs from my new album"
It's an amazing show and to see the original band perform is great. I never had the chance to see them live.
I like these tracks better than the ones on Isle of Wight 1970 DVD. That was too much Tommy for me.
They do one song from Quadrophenia which is Drowned. I wish they did a few more. 3 songs from Who By Numbers.
A small block of Tommy songs. I really like "Sparks" performance. It's an instrumental I always loved that track. Even as a kid.
"Naked Eye" is a favorite of mine from Odds & Sods lp.
In all I thought it was a true rock concert.
