Just finished watching both discs of this amazing film from Jeff Stein about The WHO! The restoration work is top notch in that mute colors & chipmonk sound from the abridge sped up version used for the vhs & laser disc has been corrected.:D (I can finally trash both my vhs & ld versions!)


The main highlight of disc two, imho, is the mutliangle views of Baba O'Reilly & Won't Get Fooled Again with Entwhistle's isolated score! Also there is a 5.1 remix of "Who Are You" (after you get through a 21 question WHO pop quiz.)


Pioneer gave us WHO fans a wonderful edition of newly remixed & corrected film with DD & DTS sound.


(I'm going to watch this disc again when my infant son is not asleep so that I can crank this up!)


Regards,


Ron C.

I was wondering when they'd finally get all the necessary releases to put this film out. I know it's subjective, but if we're talking rock films, this may be the best out there. And, my favorite part is when they break into "Ba, Ba, Ba... Ba, Barberanne." Just love this film and, I guess, I can finally own it on DVD.


Thanks for alerting me.

How'd you get a copy -- its not out officially till Tuesday the 30th?


Also, I for one, am disappointed in the extras (from what I read). As there is no new footage of the Who from anything not seen before (new angles are okay -- but it is just more angles on the SAME performance in the film).


The extras do NOT include all the stuff that was made for the film (like the Kilburn concert), but cut. Also, not other Who archival footage.


The extras are rather gimmicky and lame. Who cares about trivia games, who cares about a modern-day Jeff Stein and Roger Daltrey interview?


The re-mixed music is still the same thing we have heard before, although re-mixed.


Where are the outtakes/deleted scenes? Where is other archival Who footage not yet seen before (see Led Zep DVD for examples).


I am thrilled to pick up a restored The Kids Are Alright in all its glory (full length, restored audio/video), but the extras are extremely disappointing. Particulalry in light of the producer's solicitation for fan input for extras when this project began two years ago or so.


I doubt many fans said they want a triva game, or a documentary on the making of the DVD (which is already on the website) -- yawn.


I love the Who and can't wait to get this DVD -- the "extras" are truly lame (overall, with the limited exception of the angles and isolated OX bass -- which is still nothing really completely new).


They cheaped out on the extras. Maybe the budget wasn't there. What a waste of an entire 2nd DVD.

Where have you guys been -- Who fans have been talking about this for a year? Here's a pretty technical review on the DVD:
