Wow, I love this movie.
While the opener, My generation, gets attention because of the explosion that nearly killed half of Hollywood at the end, it's the next song, I Can't Explain, that gets us going. My Generation is lip synch, but I Can't Explain, from a different show, is apparently live. And it rocks. Moon was incredible.
Having seen the movie in the theaters as a student, I bought the vhs tape about ten years ago. It sounded awful - like an old cassette tape that had been left in the sun. I thought it was defective. Turns out it was the master they were creating the tapes from.
When the restoration project was initiated, the bad tape was discovered and they went further into the archives for the source tapes. Thank god. This movie really sounds great. And a bonus track of Entwhistle's isolated bass on one or two live tracks is really entertaining.
Pointing out the obvious: If you are a Who fan and haven't seen this, you really should. It's one of the finest rock movies ever made and a fitting tribute to a great band.
