RE-UP: The Who live in Sheffield 1971 - 2CD - March 7

The Who
07-03-1971
City (Oval) Hall
Sheffield
England

This version is an extensively reworked composite edited together from two versions of the same audience tape. A mostly fair, virtually complete audience recording that has some hiss, and is distorted in places. The originals (particularly version 2) are perhaps the worst recordings in the currently circulating body of Who shows. Version 2 of this performance has circulated in the past as "Sheffield, May 12th, 1971", which is incorrect. There was no concert anywhere on this date.

Total Length: 94mins 07sec

An interesting and well played show at the end of a two-part Spring/early Summer tour that marked the end of the "Lifehouse" period between "Tommy" and "Who's Next". Only 2 recordings from this tour have so far come to light: Liverpool (May 14th, which is incomplete), and this one; unfortunately both are poor.

The performance is excellent. Daltrey is in fine form throughout, although he makes an early entry mistake during Entwhistle's first bass run of "My Generation" that is similar to that heard on "Live At Leeds" (but edited out of the "Deluxe" release) - you would have thought he would have known this song by then! "Time is Passing" and "Too Much Of Anything" were the most subdued part of the show, but were still played pretty well, as was a long "Getting In Tune". All three were getting to the end of their live performances at this point. There were 4 more dates on this tour (which finished in Watford a couple of weeks later), but no recordings from them have surfaced. So this show is the last time TIP and TMOA were recorded live; GIT made a comeback almost 30 years later. "Pure and Easy" is one of the longest versions ever recorded of this song. The new songs are described by Daltrey and Townshend as being from a new album that was about to be released, while Townshend says they were thinking of releasing a double album--presumably, the abandoned "Lifehouse" album. Townshend introduces "Baby Don't You Do It" as a song recently revived from the 1965 Marquee shows; it's a great performance. The older songs in the second half--particularly "Naked Eye"--are characteristically strong, and the show finishes with a good performance of Won't Get Fooled Again, despite some synchronization problems with the backing tapes.

Here is an exerpt of a review of this show by Jeff Geml taken from thewholive.de website.

"Of all the shows I saw during the 1960's and 1970's this sticks as the most memorable.

The event was a sellout and the crowd was really free. Skimpily dressed chicks and long-haired "freaks" passing joints and bottles of wine were the order of the day. Everybody was cool. No fights that I saw. No OD's either. We were lucky to get great seats with a good vantage point for viewing the entire stage.

The lights dimmed and then suddenly Joe Walsh and the James Gang walked onstage. They had a pretty solid repertoire of hits and played them masterfully. I would have bought a ticket just to see them play for an hour or so. At the end of their last song there was a couple of second quiet "lull" as the crowd did not exactly know if the song was over, somebody way up in the stands yelled "you stink". Joe Walsh did the right thing, he gave the guy his middle finger and said "F... You!"

After about a 15 or 20 minute break the lights went out and the stage was eerily quiet for a full 30 seconds. Suddenly a spotlight zeroed in on a figure wearing a white "milkman's" suit descending from about 10 or 12 feet in the air (did he jump off something?) and landing on the stage floor with a wild swing of his arm tearing into his guitar strings and shattering the silence with a deafening roar. (Peter Townshend, of course). He swung that arm like a fast-moving pendulum while firing off guitar notes and riffs. He played every fret from one end of that guitar to the other like it was an extension of himself. A third leg or a third arm.

The band played song after song, hit after hit. Roger Daltrey swinging the microphone like a lariat and catching it in the nick of time, every time, on cue. Keith Moon with drumsticks twirling and bouncing off drumheads 20 maybe 25 feet in the air, only to fall back caught in his hand and played without missing a beat. John Entwistles' bass permeating every bone in my body. I swear fillings came loose. The band would individually solo from time-to-time showcasing each players talents, but then come back and play tightly together, every time.

The light show that accompanied the performance was psychedelic but did not overpower the show. Not like Alice Coopers' gimmickry nor the opposite, Jethro Tulls' boring non-light show (where I swear they lip-synced the entire concert).
No sir, no lip-syncing by the Who. Their clothing was drenched with sweat as they poured their hearts and talent into each and every song. The group did not destroy their equipment at the end of this show, as was their trademark. I personally would have been in tears to see such fine instruments that gave us more than two hours of great music and memories smashed into pieces.

Boy was I lucky to have bought a ticket to see the show. What an event! I'll never forget it."

This should be an upgrade to most known copies of this recording and this particular tape has never been properly digitized in any form prior to Dec. 2010.

"It took hours of phone calls (back when long distance was expensive!) to get this one. Features a great version of 'Young Man Blues'"

Notes:
Some of these performances have appeared on other releases, most notably
the definitive '69 SBD's' series by 'Professor Stoned'.  Lineage investigations
of these tapes leave me a bit skeptical that the live tracks included on
the 'Higher Education' bootleg all originated from the Georgetown concert.
Nonetheless, a nice collection of great sounding live tracks from the Who's
legendary 1969 Fall US tour.

Notes:

A fair to good audience recording.  This was recorded during their 2nd US tour.  The show
finishes with My Generation, which is sadly cut.  An announcer is caught on tape talking about
a "brief intermission", as the pieces of guitar and amp are picked up!

There is some tape wear present on this recording and some source cuts too.

The Doors shared the same bill.  Pete Townshend is inspired by Jim Morrison to write Sally
Simpson; "The Doors had become meteoric and Jim Morrison's Christ picture is all over f**king
New York".

Magic Bus was released as a single a few days before this gig in the US.

The Who
Fillmore East 1968 + French TV 1966 (bonus) [Sunrise SR-0012]
Excellent Soundboard Recording

Notes: One of the best and most bootlegged Who shows from this era. It documents their transition from a "pop" band into hard rock jamming. Shakin' All Over is a very long jam that showcases PT's lead guitar styles and how well JAE is in tune to Pete's playing. Relax is another worthy psychedelic guitar jam. There are various versions of this show around that claim to be from different dates and slightly different set lists that at times omit Summertime Blues and / or the mini opera (A Quick One) and / or My Generation. Some claim to be from April 5, 1968, some from April 6, 1968 (taken from thewho.net).

A fair, almost complete audience recording--more than acceptable for 1966.

A short, but sweet performance from the 'A Quick One' era. Townshend can be heard playing 12-string on a few tunes and they run through the set with almost no pause between numbers. One of the greatest Who bootlegs, truly a gem.
