The Who's 1979 movie documentary, The Kids Are Alright, is widely regarded as one of the best documentaries of a rock group ever released. And with good reason -- at 99 minutes in length, it features the perfect blend of songs, interviews, and interesting non-music clips from the early '60s, up until Keith Moon's untimely death in 1978. But what really holds the viewer's interest for the duration are the band's continuously fiery performances -- The Who was long-considered "the world's greatest live act" for good reason. The opening out-of-control clip, "My Generation" from The Smothers Brothers TV show, was shocking stuff for the time (the mid-'60s), while live takes of "Baba O'Riley" and "Won't Get Fooled Again" from Shepperton Film Studios in '78 are among the finest and most energetic live rock performances ever captured on tape. Also included is footage of the band's show-stopping set at Woodstock ("Sparks," "Pinball Wizard," "See Me, Feel Me"), early European TV appearances ("Magic Bus," "Pictures of Lily"), "A Quick One" from The Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus, and a hilarious early-'70s band interview where Keith Moon and Pete Townshend trade witty banter. The Kids Are Alright is a thoroughly entertaining must-see for fans of The Who and rock & rollers everywhere.
