    Who: Who's Next

    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.

    Who: Who's Next

    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!
