Full Show Friday: The Who- Live At The Royal Albert Hall

Happy Friday! Last year we searched the murky back waters of youtube to find full concerts and posted them to the site monthly.  That was all well and good but this year RtBE is upping the ante with a show every week to celebrate Full Show Friday's.  These shows are of varying quality and may not be here for long so enjoy them while you can. As always, please support the artist every which way, but especially by seeing them live (if they are still playing)...This week...The Who!

After last weeks quick burst of punk rock we got a long one for you today.  We will be seeing The Who, live by the Sea and Sand in a few weeks playing what RtBE considers the best Rock and Roll album of all time say we can't wait is an understatement.  Of course it isn't going to be life altering, 2 main parts of the group are dead and those parts are what we like the most on Quadrophenia...the bass and drum.  Anyway, that doesn't take away from this amazing video, with John Entwistle still alive and kicking...well thundering is more like it. This was a charity concert for the Teenage Cancer Trust where the Who had some friends join them, in what could be one of the last truly great live Who shows.     

Highlights are of course the Quadrophenia songs with Townshend doing "Drowned" acoustically (with a pump fake beginning), Entwistle slapping a mean solo in "5:15" and guest Eddie Vedder helping out on "I'm One"!!! I also dig this version of "Bargain", the explosive "Won't Get Fooled Again" and "Gettin In Tune" a criminally underrated Who song.  Hell the whole facking show rocks!
