Great Concert. Poor presentation.

"The Who Live In Toronto is a straight reissue of the CBS/Fox Home Video title Who Rocks America. The picture quality is inferior to the laserdisc version from 1983, however. The audio does not sound better either, only louder.
This great video documents Pete Townshend at the tail end of his most creative period. Within two years, Townshend wrote Empty Glass (1980), Face Dances (1981), All The Best Cowboys (1982) and It's Hard (1982). There's a great selection of new and old songs. This version of "Sister Disco" is the best.
If you have the old laserdisc, keep it. This DVD is worse. If you don't have the laserdisc version, buy it (along with a player) on eBay.
Horrible treatment of a great concert.

"The above review is right; good concert but my 25 year old second generation vhs tape looks and sounds just as good. With technology being what it is today, there is no exuse for releasing such a shoddy piece of work than this. As far as I know neither the Who or their management even acknowledge this disc, and for good reason. They must know that their long time, hard core fans are being gouged. If you want live material from the 1982 tour, buy Who's Last. It's not the best but most of the material came from this concert anyhow, and it is a step or two higher in quality."
