The Who - Quadrophenia - Live In London (2014)

In 2012/2013, The Who embarked on the Quadrophenia and More Tour, performing their landmark rock opera in its entirety, marking the 40th anniversary of the original 1973 release of this double-album masterpiece. The critically acclaimed and highly successful tour closed at London's Wembley Arena, with the cameras rolling, to record the closing night of this historic anniversary tour.
QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON: 5-Disc Limited Collector's Edition includes the High Definition Blu-RayTM and standard DVD of the concert film, both in 5.1 Surround Sound audio; a two-CD soundtrack of the show; and for the first time, a 5.1 Surround Sound mix of the entire 1973 album release of Quadrophenia on a Blu-Ray Audio DiscTM. Extras include a 6' Mod Headlight sticker, a Mod Headlight button, and a book with liner notes and photos, all housed in a 10' metal container embossed with the movie-inspired, iconic, Mod bullseye logo painted on a Vespa SG scooter headlight.
Filmed on July 8, 2013, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON features The Who in peak form, performing Quadrophenia from front to back, in its entirety, plus a special set of some of their all-time greatest hits. The film captures the band's dynamic performance in front of their hometown crowd and features blistering performances of 'The Real Me', 'The Punk And The Godfather', 'Doctor Jimmy' and a powerful performance of 'Love Reign O'er Me'. With HD screen backdrops, archival footage and today s advanced technology in sound, QUADROPHENIA: LIVE IN LONDON reunites The Who with bandmates John Entwistle, for '5:15', and Keith Moon for his signature song 'Bell Boy'. In addition to their performance of Quadrophenia, the band tear through classic tracks such as 'Pinball Wizard', 'Who Are You', 'You Better You Bet' 'Baba O'Riley' 'Won't Get Fooled Again' and 'Tea & Theatre', from their 2006 release 'Endless Wire', with the intensity and power only The Who can conjure.

Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
When the Who initially attempted to tour Quadrophenia in 1974, the results were a disaster. The band performed the rock opera alongside a series of backing tapes containing synthesizers and sound effects, a decision that put the mercurial Who into a straitjacket and led to uncharacteristically restrained performances. For years, the legend that Quadrophenia didn't lend itself to the stage persisted but things started to change in 1996, when an all-star production was launched at London's Hyde Park. This was such a rousing success that U.K. and U.S. tours followed and, from that point on, the Who returned to Quadrophenia far more often than Tommy, which they essentially retired after it turned into a Broadway musical. Anchored by a July 8, 2013 performance, 2014's Quadrophenia: Live in London pays tribute to the enduring legacy of Pete Townshend's rock opera. The concert is available in a variety of iterations, the simplest containing nothing more than the 2013 show -- this is available as a double-CD set, a Blu-ray, and a DVD, plus a digital download -- the most lavish being a five-disc box that contains the concert in the CD, Blu-ray, and DVD formats, along with the first-ever 5.1 mix of the original 1973 album, a feature many fans wish was included in the 2011 deluxe box set reissue of the album (there, only eight songs were mixed into Surround). If there ever were a record that cried out to be remixed in 5.1 Surround Sound, it's Quadrophenia -- it's enveloping enough as stereo, but the synths and sound effects beg for an immersive experience -- so this mix (which is also available separately as a Blu-ray Pure Audio single disc) is a worthwhile enticement on its own terms, but the 2013 show is strong on its own terms, too. Working with their longtime touring band of drummer Zak Starkey, bassist Pino Paladino, and rhythm guitarist Simon Townshend, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey are tight and assured, substituting a weathered gravitas for the original's roiling teenage angst. Neither singer can hit the high notes they did in the '70s but neither tries, and their deeper voices add a sense of melancholy that contrasts well with the vigorous muscle of the band. An encore of greatest hits (plus "Tea & Theatre," from 2006's Endless Wire) is a nice touch but the focus is where it should be: on Quadrophenia, which upon its 40th anniversary sounds like Pete Townshend's masterpiece, whether it's heard in its original LP version or on this very good live set.
