CLASSIC DALTREY AT CLASSIC SHOW
“The indomitable Daltrey came loaded for bear,” writes RICHARD S. GINELL in VARIETY, “with ‘Pinball Wizard’ and ‘See Me Feel Me/Listening to You’ — in heroic voice, gleefully whipping his microphone lariat around as always. Yet the bombastic backing by Thomas Wilkins and the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra sounded like a throwback to Lou Adler’s symphonic “Tommy” album — and thus fit pretty well with the rest of the program. Nor was there much contrast in Trisha Yearwood singing “I’ll Be Seeing You” or John Williams leading his ubiquitous “Star Wars” theme.”
