The Who
An early love, now rekindled

BBC RADIO SESSIONS 1965 - 1970. 11 Tunes, running about 30 minutes of BBC studio broadcasts.

LIFEHOUSE & QUADROPHENIA DEMOS. Nice stuff, I got it,.

WHO'S NEXT SESSIONS. Also includes some stuff from the The Making of Who's Newt TV Special from 1993.

IT'S FACE DEMOS. Consists of 4 Facer Dancer demos, 4 It's Hard Demos and 3 Who's Next Demos.

PETE TOWNSEND "BY NUMBERS" DEMOS. Muddy sounding stuff, maybe a couple of generations before put to disc.

FROM LIFEHOUSE TO LEEDS. Contains 6 Lifehouse studio recordings and then 4 live tunes from 1970.

SOUNDBOARD HIGHLIGHTS 1969. Good stuff here.

LIFE WITH THE MOONS. Odd little set, has a number of comedy bits along with various outtakes, studio chatter et al.

LIVE AT LEEDS COMPLETE (2) Wow, it's the grand tamale. All the songs and quite an immense performance. You truly can grasp the enormity of their musical talents.

APRIL 6, 1969. Filmore East, NYC. Hard rocking soundboard.

WINDMILL IN AMSTERDAM. September 29, 1969, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Wired off a soundboard this is a radio broadcast that purports to be the first live performance of Tommy. My god, the tunes are so familiar, to me The Who are like an old girlfriend you see at your high school reunion. It's enjoyable, but no wonder you moved on.

THE WHO REMEMBERS THE HIGH NUMBERS. A bit of a dodgy listen - much sounding mono and other stuff just sounding mediocre at best. Still kind of interesting and fits snugly on my shelf.

THE FALL 1969 SOUNDBOARD TAPES. VOLUMES 1 - 5 (5) Wowee Zowee. The group at one of it's peaks.

OCTOBER 22, 1969. Filmore East, New York City. 17 Killer songs in soundboard.

HIGHER EDUCATION. November 1969. Live at Georgetown University along with some bonus demos and other stuff. Great.

FILMORE WEST 1969. Must be a soundboarder with Townsend's guitar front and center and the vocals a dash burried in the mix. These are hard rockin Brittish lads!

NO FIDDLESTICKS. (2) January 1970, Paris, France. A smudgy soundboard, the band soars through it.

POP GALA. March 10, 1973. Sporthal de Vliegemolen Voorburg, Netherlands. TV Soundboard. Four songs.

JULY 7, 1970 (2) Tanglewood. Lenox, Massachusetts. Bill Graham brings Tommy to Tanglewood. Must have been quite a concept at the time. Soundboard.

NEW YEAR'S EVE. December 31, 1970. Sourced off a vinyl. Includes some Tommy Rehearsals.

YOUNG VIC BLUES. April 26, 1971. London. A rocking outfit in their prime.

SAN FRANCISCO '71. December 13, 1971. 12 kickin' tunes.

DECEMBER 6, 1973. Washington, DC. King Biscuit Flower Hour. Solid.

LIVE IN HOUSTON 1975. (2) November 20, 1975. Houston, Texas. Jbeat-Remaster. Good hard rocking' stuff from this outfit in full glory.

PONTIAC SILVERDOME 1975 (2) December 6, 1975. Pontiac, Michigan. Another sound boarder.

WHO PUT A BETTER BOOT IN 1976. June 12, 1976. Swansea, UK Strong 15 song performance.

WHOLIDAY IN CLEVELAND. (2) DECEMBER 9, 1976. Sloppy soundboard. Has some audio speed problems, probably sourced off Vinyl.

KILBURN 1977. December 15, 1977. Northwest London, England. Keith Moon's last show. Soundboard recording.

MAY 17, 1979 (2) Paris, France. Nice radio broadcast.

ROCKPALAST. March 28/29, 1981. Essen, Germany. The men performing with Kenny Jones on drums. Perfect sound - literally no audience as this is a TV program.

AUGUST 24, 1989 (2) Universal Amphitheater. The first disc is Tommy with various guests - Steven Winwood, Elton, Patti LaBelle, Elton John - a bit overblown if you ask me and the second disc is a rocking Who only disc. Superb sound quality.

SEPTEMBER 3, 1989 (2) DALLAS, TEXAS. It's the last show of the tour and it's a good one. Soundboard.

JULY 18, 1996 (2) MSG, New York City. Radio broadcast, this is the Quadrophenia show with guests and then a couple at the end. Great sound and good stuff.

JULY 3, 2000 (2) Mansfield, Massachusetts. Soundboarder from the then Tweeter Center. Always remembered as Great Woods.

JULY 7, 2000 (2) Camden, New Jersey. Soundboard. Lots of fun.

SMASHED (2) JULY 9, 2000. Jones Beach, New York. A slightly flawed soundboard.

AUGUST 21, 2000 (2) Mountain View, California. Terrific show, soundboard. Love it.

AUGUST 22, 2000 (2) Marysville, California. Sounboard. This is one seriously booted tour

AUGUST 24, 2000 (2) Denver, Colorado. Great soundboard. Good job, boys.

SEPTEMBER 28, 2000 (2) Atlanta, Georgia. Soundboard. Kicking ass.

SEPTEMBER 30, 2000 (2) Cleveland, Ohio. Soundboard. Go, man go.

OCTOBER 7, 2000 (2) New York City. Soundboard Matrix Recording. Bing bang boom, still explosive.

APRIL 7, 2015 (2) Miami, Florida. Soundboard. One more Final time. A thoroughly enjoyable greatest hits show. I caught a different night of the tour and can attest to it's power and spine tingling energy. It is, however, a representation of The Who, not a real rock and roll band, but a professional one.

GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL. June 28, 2015. Pilton, UK. Sourced from the Satellite Feed, the kids are alright. Enjoyable.


PETE:

THE GENUINE SCOOP (5) A big helping of Pete Demos recorded in his home studio in Chelsea. 1965-1975.

ASSORTED DEMOS 1960'S (MAYBE SOME EARLY 70'S). A single set of demos, various quality.

APRIL 14, 1970. The Roundhouse, London. This was Pete's first ever live show which he wrote about in his autobiography. A pretty cool performance, he played a demo of "My Generation" for the audience. What slays me is the relationship between audience and artist. Special

LIVE IN MIDEM. Cannes, France 1986. Quiet radio broadcast finishing with a short interview. Biggest flaw is that the vocals are burried a bit too deep.
