The film opens with the band's famed 1967 American TV debut on The Smothers Brothers Show and continues through Monterey Pop, Woodstock and on into the 1970s. Twenty-two classic Who tunes are featured, including the title track The Kids Are Alright and special versions of My Generation, Magic Bus, Happy Jack, and Long Live Rock. Other tracks were re-mixed using the best existing sources to ensure that the DVD presents The Who's music at maximum fidelity. These new re-mixes were specially engineered in London by long-time Who associates Jon Astley and Andy McPherson. However, special attention must be paid to the remastered 5.1 (dts and Dolby Digital) versions of Won't Get Fooled Again and Baba O'Riley, both shot especially for the movie and reborn in this digital presentation. Incidentally they represent Keith Moon's last performance with the band, shot shortly before his untimely death in September '78.

This Special Edition 2-disc DVD includes the bonus disc Won't Get Filmed Again. Clocking in at around two and a half hours of rare material, this disc contains brand new interviews with key participants Roger Daltrey (Behind Blue Eyes) and director Jeff Stein (See My Way), a virtual tour of London, trivia games and a multi-angle performance segment. All the titles of the segments are playfully drawn from Who song titles. Most of disc 2's supplementary material is dedicated to detailing what went into the restoration of this project, from both a philosophical standpoint as well as a technical one, making it fascinating for movie fans as well as fans of The Who.

    THE best rock n' roll documentary you're ever likely to come across. Superb live performances interwoven with TV clips, interviews and general shenanigans from arguably the wildest band to ever to grace the airwaves.

    Now with better sound and picture too, a brilliant film all in all.
