I just bought THE WHO The Kids Are Alright - Special Edition Two DVDs (2003 Pioneer).
I am happy with the purchase as I had previously seen the DVD so I knew what I was getting. I'd like to maybe add another Who DVD or two to my collection and wondered what would be good ones to go with to complement what I have or which ones to avoid if there are some poor audio-video quality ones out there too.

I wouldn't mind knowing myself. I love the Who but I don't currently have any of their videos. The few that I've seen were pretty bad quality. I'd like to know which one is THE ONE to get.

I'm glad I got it to complement "The Kids Are Alright," but I don't think too much of the Rockpalast 1981 concert. The audio-video quality seems poor. It was still worth getting for the first disc though.

So now that I have these two DVDs -,The Kids Are Alright and Maximum R&B Live, which DVD should I look for next that will give what I am lacking without over duplicating what I already have?

I have The Who at Kilburn 1977 on Blu-ray. Video is in 1080p Widescreen 1.78:1 and the audio is in DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1, DD 5.1, PCM stereo. Includes bonus material from Tommy from the London Coliseum. Looks and sounds to me like The Who at their all time best. Keith Moon was in fine form!

On something of that era, is blu-ray much better than standard DVD. I don't have a Blu-ray player yet.

Thanks! How is the SQ on this one? I'll be satisfied with a clear recording showcasing all of the instruments that is free from grain and overload. I've watched some of the Who performances on demand and the badn obviously delivered but the recordings were so shoddy it just makes you wish that they sounded like the studio recordings.

I would imagine the Blu Ray will be much better than the dvd especially in audio but I would guess video also. I have some concert HD dvd's and they are great.

The Blu-ray sounded very nice. I'm using K-horns and McIntosh amps.

I bought a Who concert and Pete dropped the F-Bomb. Took it back and got my money back. We watch concerts as a family and I don't do swearing. That's also why I took back Alice in Chains Unplugged.

The Who
Live at the Isle of Wight Festival 1970
Blu-ray



Wow...the Who at the top of their game. Roger and Pete in top form. The audience was eating from their hands. John was his usual stellar self, all be it in a rather bizarre skeleton costume. Keith was as erratic as ever (perhaps he took something for his nerves?).

The only f-bombs were in the interview with Pete Townshend in the bonus features.
