5.0 out of 5 stars A Quick Two, While The Terrible Music You Usually Listen To Is Away., April 6, 2009
This review is from: The Who At Kilburn: 1977 (DVD)
I think that Roger Daltrey (and all of the members of The Who) underestimate themselves in reference to their '77 Kilburn concert. He starts off by saying that they don't know how the show will turn out because they "haven't played these songs for about a year". Seconds later, Pete Townshend starts in on the first chords of "I Can't Explain", and let's just say that that was enough buyer assurance for me. If this is The Who at thier worst, then I can't imagine them at their best!

Also included in this 2-DVD set is The Who: Live at the London Coliseum 1969, a show proclaimed by The Who themselves as one of their best. It really is. Even though the video is supposedly sub-par,(converted from 16mm film roll, and shot in incorrect lighting) I think it's great, and the audio certainly is, given the fact that it was recorded in an actual opera house. This concert is from The Who's "Tommy" era, so the set list features the entire rock opera, as well as the dynamic set-opener, "Heaven and Hell", the top-10 hit, "I Can't Explain", their "mini-opera", "A Quick One, While He's Away", and The Who's "hymn"("or her, if you like", as Townshend jokes), "My Generation", just to name a few.
(The full set list can be found on Wikipedia:
<[...]%2B_Live_at_the_Coliseum>).

An energetic '70s Rock 'N' Roll concert and rock opera in an actual opera house. These just go to show you that The Who did it before anyone else, louder than anyone else, and better than anyone else. Buy this product.
