The Who‘s documentary Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who, which chronicles the history of the band, is now streaming for the first time.
The Amazing Journey documentary, directed by Murray Lerner and Paul Crowder and featuring interviews with The Who’s co-founders and surviving members Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, is available exclusively on “The Coda Collection.”
The documentary, which was originally released in 2007, contains some rare and previously unseen footage and several performance clips. It captures the band’s origins and the influence over the course of a career spanning more than 50 years.
The movie also documents the band’s various pivotal moments, including the emergence of the mod culture, the group’s reputation for destroying instruments on-stage and how they landed a record deal thanks to their hit “I Can’t Explain.”
“It’s not easy to capture in film the power and energy of any rock band, especially the four characters that made up The Who, the brilliance of Pete Townshend’s music, and the magic that happened between Pete, John, Keith and myself. But Who fans tell me ‘Amazing Journey’ does just that,” Daltrey said.
“From the moment that Keith joined us in The Railway Hotel back in 1964 it was like a bottle of champagne being uncorked. We just clicked. And here we are, all these years later – we’ve lost our dear bandmates Keith and John, and Pete and I continue to play together and carry this story forward,” he added. “Thanks to Coda for putting this show up, and enjoy this film about our journey. I’m still living it!”
