Eagle Rock is thrilled to present

one of the greatest live bands in rock’n’roll

history: The Who Live In Texas ’75 on

DVD October 9

Pete Townshend. Roger Daltrey. Keith

Moon. John Entwistle. Filmed in

Houston, Texas 11/20/75, it was right at the

start of a massive tour of the U.S. to promote

The Who By Numbers, their seventh album

in their 10th year of existence. With Dolby

Digital Stereo sound, this 117-minute 25-

song bomb blast—previously only available

as a muddled bootleg—has been pridefully

restored to its rightful visual and sonic

superiority by longtime Who collaborator

Jon Astley.





Filmed only five years after what arguably is the greatest live album in rock, Live

At Leeds, The Who Live In Texas ’75, lives up to and in some ways actually

surpasses its predecessor’s greatness. The Who, at that particular point in time,

had achieved an unerring almost magical mystical chemistry. Between the

windmilling antics of guitarist Townshend, the mic wire lasso of lead singer

Daltrey, the crazed bombastic danger of drummer Moon (1946-1978) and, of

course, their secret weapon, genius bassist John Entwistle (1944-2002), this

was a truly revolutionary band who changed all the hard rock rules. Even the

punks, in the anti-rock star era of the late ‘70s, loved The Who.

The extensive Tommy section…the savage recreations of early hits such as “My

Generation” (with its iconic “hope I die before I get old” line delivered in all its

lusty nihilistic truth)…the celebrated cover of Eddie Cochran’s “Summertime

Blues”…plus “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again” make this a Who

fan’s delight.
