Overview

Part of the Classic Album series, this documentary details the process by which the Who created 1971's outstanding Who's Next album. Featuring insider information, such as how the final mixes were worked out, the documentary also explains that the songs on the album were initially written to be part of an ambitious interactive theater piece called Lifehouse, which never quite coalesced. Songwriter, guitarist, and singer Pete Townshend, bassist John Entwistle, and vocalist Roger Daltrey provide insight into the history of the project, as do interviews with managers, press agents, and writers, including biographer Dave Marsh. The program includes archival footage of the band performing tracks such as "I Can't Explain" and "My Generation" as well as a tribute to drummer Keith Moon who died in 1978.

I was very disapointed with this DVD. I was expecting to see some good live performances from this classic album. Instead it was mostly interviews with the group and other persons working with them, connected with brief cuts of concert clips. No full songs were actually heard. Do not waste your money on this one!

This DVD is very disappointing because there was very little concert footage of the Who, and no full songs from their classic album are heard here. This DVD is brief and mostly interviews with the band members and producers. Unfortunately this is not a music concert tape.
