  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
In 1962 four London lads known as The Detours began an Amazing Journey. They eventually changed their name to The Who and a rock legend began. Still recording and touring today, this two-disc documentary is a definitive guide to one of rock-n-roll

DVD Picture:
As a collection of original interview footage and archival material, the anamorphically enhanced 1.84:1 DVD has an inconsistent picture quality. But even the new material is inconsistent in its quality, often looking sharp and natural, but other times looking soft and noisy. Fleshtones look natural in the new material, and colors generally are well saturated. The archived material is edited in well and is fairly clean. Edge enhancement is noticeable throughout.
