Re: Boiler Suit Shows

Original posting from Joe Grimes:

I have to agree 100%. This was the Who at their absolute peak. A well done
video, not all chopped up and butchered like the CD boxed set. The video
was also very good at showing the Who in their different stages, mid-60's
finding their identity, 69-70's peak, early 70's large arena band, later
70's deterioration until their final demise on 09/07/78. IMHO, the Who
ended on that day and the "30 Years" video confirms it with the
performances of everything that followed.

I also hope these videos will be released but I'm not optimistic. If anyone
has good quality videos of these shows please contact me re: purchase or trade.

I'd be happy if somebody would just release a decent bootleg of the Leeds
show. My tape of the show is pretty low quality.
