LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Two feature-length DVDs on the Who will reach stores on November 6, one targeted at mainstream fans of the British rock veterans and the other at die-hard aficionados.

"Amazing Journey: The Story of the Who," the film for wide audiences, will receive its world premiere September 12 at the Toronto International Film Festival, 40 years after the group completed its first major North American tour.

The film chronicles the history of the band through fresh interviews with surviving band members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, rare concert footage, artist profiles and more.

The companion film, "Amazing Journey: Six Quick Ones" features four segments on the musical abilities of band members Townshend, Daltrey, bass player John Entwistle and drummer Keith Moon. A fifth part, "Who Art You," explores the Mod culture that spawned the band's visuals, while segment six, "Who's Back," chronicles the 2003 recording of "Real Good Looking Boy," the Who's first new studio recording in more than 20 years.

The two films will be released by Universal Studios Home Entertainment in one two-disc set that also includes a book and bonus content. Extras include a video scrapbook showcasing a dinner with Moon; the tragic 1979 Cincinnati concert in which 11 fans were crushed to death in a rush to get into the Riverfront Coliseum; and the celebrated 2000 Royal Albert Hall concert, in which the Who were joined by such guest musicians as Bryan Adams and Eddie Vedder in a benefit for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
