A Strong Showing from Daltrey!
Archie Mercer | Yorba Linda, CA | 06/07/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I had the pleasure of watching the video of this concert. Although Daltrey by this stage of his life is beginning to look almost silly twirling that microphone, that doesn't take away form the fact that this is just a great set! Back by a strong group as well as an Orchestra from the Julliard School of Music, and joined by many special guests, including "the man himself, Pete Townsend" Daltrey shows why there can never be any other lead singer for the Who. The power of his vocals, even on a night where he wasn't at the top of his game, matches perfectly with the wonderful music of Townsend. I would recommend this to ANY Who fan."
Michael Kamen is Awesome

"I bought the DVD, and the mix on the vocals are poor. If you like orchestral arrangements,the Overture by Michael Kamen alone is worth the price. The opening sends chills up your spine. He uses the classic Kamen overrun of trumpets at the end, and although I am now getting the audio CD,watching Michael conduct the orchestra, with Simon Phillips on Drums is an experience in itself. Kamen famous for his soundracks (Holland's Opus, X-Men, and Braveheart) are but a few of his credits."
Astounding hidden gem

"For a few years, our local NPR station has been playing a tantalizing snippet at 8AM, I was sure it was an orchestral arrangement of "Won't Get Fooled Again", and gradually edged closer to the truth. Thanks to KCHO's news director Todd Thornton, i was steered to the source, and found a copy at Amazon.com And was stunned; the whole of the work is simply amazing. As another reviewer pointed out, "Baba O'Reilly" is truly outstanding. If you are in any way a Who fan, buy this immediately if you can, and do not have it already."
