I also have all of the who in vinyl and cd and i also agree about tommy Ann-Margret and Oliver Reed can't sing to save their lives but i do like a few of the songs sung by the who themselves, i have been a who fan since i was pretty young i was influenced by my older brother on alot of the 70s bands like loggins and messina, neil diamond ect.. He always had a huge stereo system and when he got something new i would get his old stuff. The 70s is far my favorite era for music.

Zeppelin v. the Who?

To see which had a wider influence, all one has to do is spend a couple of hours in a guitar shop and count how many times you hear an amateur player hack through a riff. You'll hear alot of Zeppelin. You wont hear any Who.

Zeppelin's quartet set many of the standards for rock musicians that followed.

I think that this is the typical style vs. substance debate. Zeppelin consists of a much richer and satisfying substance while The Who brought the style of punk rock to the stage, which many find popular as a social statement.

Musically, Zep puts the Who under the table. Dancin' Days, Kashmir, Whole Lotta Love, Immigrant Song, Dazed and Confused....many texturally different embodiments of raw blues rock swirled with a broad spectrum of other genres.

Zep is much more satisfying for the player.

The Who are probably more satisfying for the guy with buttons on his denim jacket and a seldom-used bottom end fender guitar in the closet.

Somehow I've managed to find time to see, hear, and appreciate both of those bands.

Radical concept, I know.

In regards to Tommy..I never thought it was all that in the first place, plus it was poorly produced...remixes have undone some of that since. Nowadays, I see no reason to own it other than being the completist. Much of the highlights are contained on the box set, Live At Leeds and Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 anyways...the live albums especially bring that material to life much more than the studio album ever could.

So yeah, roughly by 1968, it was largely all over....save for the occasional guitar, cymbal or floor tom here and there.

I'm largely indifferent to the smashing of instruments...there were many times when I was playing where I wanted to pull a Sid Vicious, unstrap my bass and swing it at the aholes head in the crowd that was taunting me, so I understand the frustration that would lead up to that. It was never something that would turn me off from a band though because, afterall, it's the music that counts when all is said and done...not the stage show.
That's one of the things I appreciated about Led Zeppelin: They were able to keep an audience enthralled for three hours with no theatrics, no histrionics, no props, no smashing of instruments, and no gimmicks whatsoever.

And if The Song Remains The Same is any indication at all, they could put the nonbelivers to sleep as well. Outside of ELP's Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends, there has never been a more apt title for a band's album, much less a film project.

I haven't heard this before....great news if it's true. I hope they'd release them on CD as well. I'd be very interested in anything from the 60's thru 1975....if they are anything like Live At The Isle Of Wight Festival 1970 I'll scoop them up in a heartbeat.

Oh Man, it's beyond great IMHO....it damn near houses everything else in the genre. It deserves far more accalim that it gets, even saying it's a bona fide classic seems to do it disservice. No blues fan should be without a copy of it.

Not a good night, but the only footage they had at the time (this was before the video age.) Nevertheless, the film was still selling out showings in theaters years after its release.

Do you have these? Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who chronicles the band's history through interviews with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey as well as rare concert footage.

A guy gave me a disc today of a Humble Pie recording from Winterland, 5/6/73. He said it'a a boot, but it's a soundboard and when I googled H.P and the date, a British Import called Up Your Sleeve came up, but I can't find a date for that show. Anyone know if they are one and the same?

Could've fooled me...IMO it's no better or worse than How The West Was Won. So I guess the whole live bit must be in the eyes of the believer because seeing any of that footage now makes me wanna drop the kids off at the pool.

They've been running those on VH1 the last couple of weeks...I watched them a couple of times but really didn't see or hear too much that I haven't before so I doubt I'm going to get them on DVD or anything.

I'm very interested in those concert releases though, especially if they're uncut and spared of commentary. The cd's especially I'd love to have...please keep me informed.

At least they didn't resort to smashing their instruments when they were having a bad night.

If you recall, I criticized Zeppelin's live show when we were discussing The Stones earlier. LZ's live show was very hit-or-miss - especially as the monkey on Page's back grew into an 800 pound gorilla. Some shows were atrocious, some were mediocre at best (like "The Song Remains the Same") and some were brilliant.

Anyway, my point was that Led Zeppelin didn't need anything more than their music to keep their fans enthralled for three hours (i.e., no bullsh*t theatrics, smashing of guitars, demolition of drum kits, etc.)

Yep - it's really your lowest common denominator, low-brow, unrefined, riff-bashing, proto-punk, cowboy chord-playing caveman stuff, isn't it?

Maybe they should've, would've been a helluva lot more interesting.

It's fairly easy to keep fans enthralled for three hours during a bad show when they're probably as zonked as Page was or more....hell, the Dead made a multi-decade career out of doing just that. As for theatrics, I was never a fan of them either (hell, I detest even a light show) but I do give credit to them pulling the plug on it when it became part of the act instead of a natural reaction.

It proves there's a sucker born every minute, if it proves anything at all....given the performance in that film and all that fantasy crap sprinkled amongst it, they should show it for free.
