Length: 103:01

Notes:
JEMS 'S' master recording. Fair sounding recording with lots of phasing issues especially on the vocals. Recording also has numerous dropouts lasting 1 second or less throughout the recording.

The first of two JEMS masters of this show, and the 2nd of two nights in Seattle. A great show featuring a rare Kenney Jones era 'Shaking All Over' in the encore. Whatever mix of stimulants Pete was doing was working for him at these Seattle shows. The band stayed at the Edgewater Hotel on the waterfront, where you could rent fishing poles in the gift shop in the lobby and 'fish from your windows'. The hotel was made famous by a Led Zepplin groupie episode told in part on Frank Zappa's 'Live At The Fillmore' album. Rabbit had a bathtub full of fish during the stay for these shows.

Another now departed arena hosted the 12th night of The Who's Winter '79 tour.   I felt like this show was a close second to Washington D.C. as the best of this tour.   A very energetic crowd feeding off a equally energetic performance by the band this night.  
The only incident of the night came after a firecracker went off at the end of 'Baba O'Riley' leading Pete to respond:"Any other cunt does that and I'm going off this stage and I'm not coming back!  The guy that threw that, just come up here...just come up here, I'll fucking smash a firework up your ass! We don't need that in rock concerts.  You picked the wrong cunt!   Just feel lucky you can still see..."
The godfather addressing the punk....
Great versions of most of the tour staples follow.
This really should have been where the tour ended, as Boston set a bar too high for the added 2nd show in Washington to top.   The band wanted to do a second show here after the cancelation in Providence,  but couldn't get the arena.  
Roger before 'Long Live Rock':
"We don't have to say it's really been great in Boston, it's always great!  We were trying to do another show tomorrow, but they wouldn't let us!  But we'll be back next year sometime anyway...They haven't beat us yet!"  Of course,  they wouldn't return to the Boston area until 1982...
The encore had a couple of great surprises, the only appearance of 'Shaking All Over' on this tour going into a very good 'Big Boss Man'.  "Our boss is you, you're the boss!  Hey, we love ya.": PT.  
Pete also pulled off a fairly quiet version of 'Baby Don't Do It', which the band hadn't played since 1972, before ending the show with a reprise of 'Dance It Away'
