Here's a 1981 show that catches the band in a playful mood. Whomever performed the transfer must have thought it was notable enough to separate some of it on its own track. Overall, I'd say the band was in a good mood. We have a performance that is quite enjoyable and the sound is not bad either.

Why Let's See Action and Dance it Away were split up in this manner is beyond me. I would have left them intact and maybe even attached to each other. Anyway...

This is a show I have yet to see seeded anywhere and figured there'd be enough appreciation of a 1980 show that has not seen the rounds as much as the others. We have a good performance here, and the only negative one may find is that there does seem to be a bit of mild mid-range distortion here.

The 8th show of the winter '79 tour was the first of two nights at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.
We left Chicago early on a very cold  morning after the show there.  A very needed day off on the tour,  which we used to drive across Interstate 80/90 from Chicago to Philadelphia.   We were in a AMC Pacer I borrowed from my brother after my Datsun B210 had ground to a halt in Detroit, two shows earlier.   Not only didn't the pacer have much heat,  it also had a hole in the floorboard behind the gas peddle, occasionally letting snow flurries into the car!  The miles of turnpikes were accompanied by a 'Best of Elvis' set of 8-track tapes my brother had in the car (the radio got very sparse for most of the trip).   As I recall, somewhere on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, north of Pittsburgh, we were at Howard Johnson's rest stop and we came across Donnie Iris and his band...ahh, life on the road...
We arrived in the evening in Philadelphia, and checked into our hotel, which was most famous for being the home of the Legionnaires disease.   The Who were staying there also,  and at some point in the next 2 days we were able to do a interview with John Entwistle, who couldn't have been nicer!
The first night's show featured a surprise appearance of John's 'terrible' 8-string bass for the only version of 'Trick Of The Light' on this leg of the tour, and I think the last time it was played until the 1989 tour.  Pete switched to 4-string bass for this song using one of John's older Alembic basses.  Also the encore featured a Pete improvasation called 'Take A Fool' before ending with 'How Can You Do It Alone?".   All in all another great performance.

The 6th show of The Who's winter '79 tour found them back in the Detroit area for the second time on the tour.   So much had happened in the eight days since the Masonic Temple show in Detroit on November 30th.   After the deaths in Cincinnati there was a lot of attention on each show of the tour, but particularly on this show due to it being the largest show of the tour and the only other general admission show of the tour.

The Who had been the first band to play Pontiac Stadium almost four years earlier on December 9th, 1975, and they hated it!  It was too cold and the sound was terrible and the size of the crowd (80,000) too unmanagable, all problems that were supposed to be addressed at this 1979 show.  The stadium was set up in it's 'mini-dome' confiquation, with the stadium divided in half by a curtain and the stage set up at the fifty yard line on the field.   The crowd was limited to 46,000, it was slightly warmer inside and the sound was slightly better, but only slightly!  The reason they played the Masonic Temple show a week earlier was to make up for playing back at Pontiac Stadium again.

Roger Daltrey addressing the audience after 'I Can't Explain' "Hello again Detroit! It's a shame it has to be in such a karzi(toilet). We'll do our best to beat this bitch of a place.  Look, there's lots of room at the front there, so if anybody would like, take a step back, and just take it easy, have a good time! We don't need to fight!"
To which Pete Townshend responds: "We already won....and lost."
Roger again before 'Long Live Rock' "We were hoping to play in the Joe Louis hall downtown this time, and it wasn't finished.  The next time we come, that's where we'll be...we'll do a few shows there, so we can get rid of all this crush and this shitty sound..."

Of course, the next time they played the Detroit area, they were back at the full Pontiac Stadium, and the time after that also....a complete slap in the face to one of their most loyal fan bases in the U.S.  They had been playing in the area since the 5th Dimension Club in Ann Arbor in June of 1967, their first show in the U.S. outside of New York City.

The show itself was great though, again building on the previous week's shows.   It was much tighter than the show at Masonic a week earlier.   It was the only show of the tour to move 'Dancing In The Streets' into the main set from the encore,  and one of the few to feature 'Magic Bus', always a crowd favorite.  The show ends with a great version of 'How can You Do It Alone'.

I tried to overcome the acoustics of the stadium by recording from right in front of the PA.  The PA was very large, probably the same size as what would have been used for a whole stadium show, and the crowd in that area was fairly sparse.  It wasn't a great sight line, and I didn't take any photos at this show, but it did eliminate most of the echo for me,  and the tape came out surprisingly good.

This show took place the day following the tragic concert in Cincinnati; as noted in the prior torrent, it was unclear until near showtime whether this show would be canceled.  The show went on as planned, and The Who put on a blistering, emotional performance.  Roger opened the concert by making reference to the tragedy of the previous night, and dedicated the show to the "lost" audience members.  The energy of this performance is evident even in the opening numbers ("Substitute" and "Can't Explain") that are typically warm-ups for the band -- this would clearly be a special night.

The performance is great throughout, with a powerful and improvisational encore.  Recording quality is outstanding -- there are some minor glitches in the opening track and some close-mic audience interference (at one point you can hear "J" asking his companion to hold the microphone) but things settle down and there is very little crowd interference to take one's attention away from the music.  Very enjoyable recording, and light-years better than most audience masters from the 1970s.

Perhaps the most tragic concert in the history of rock and roll.

The third night of The Who's Winter '79 tour is infamously known for the deaths of eleven fans outside the doors of the Riverfront Coliseum before the show. Wikipedia does a solid job of explaining the circumstances around what happened. They can be found here and we've included the text from that page in the torrent as well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Who_concert_disaster

The Who themselves went on and played their set, blindly unaware of what had happened until after the show ended. As with the show the night before in Pittsburgh, there were several firecrackers going off in the crowd which was again addressed by Pete. Despite not knowing what had occurred before the show, Pete and Roger tried (unsuccessfully) several times to get the crowd on the main floor to stop pressing forward. It was an extremely volatile situation inside as it was out, which may explain why the show actually wasn't canceled on the spot for fear of what the crowd might do.

Despite the terrible circumstances, there's no getting around that the Who's performance this fateful night was great, building on and surpassing the previous two nights shows. In "My Generation," Pete played his bolero for the first time on this part of the tour. Earlier, when introducing the new/additional musicians on stage, PT referenced other horn-section rock bands Chicago and Blood, Sweat and Tears, then dubbing The Who "Blood, Sweat and Shit." Samples provided.

When the band left stage after the main set, they were told by their management to play a shorter encore; the first sign something was amiss. After the encore they were told what had happened before the show. These terrible circumstances, obviously, cast a shadow over the rest of the tour. We drove to Buffalo the next day, not entirely sure whether there would be a show or not. There was, and the band addressed what happened in Cincinnati from the stage. But that's the next installment of our Who '79 Revisited campaign. For now, you can listen to the bizarrely unaffected performance in Cincinnati by a band that had no idea what had happened to their fans before the lights went down.

Notes:
Master transfer to dat from the JEMS archives. We are not sure how many recordings circulate for this show but are pretty sure this one is not a commonly circulated one. What we call source 1 is the Artie recording has circulated for many years along with various other recordings of his (most notably his Led Zeppelin New York recordings from 72-77). This source is as good if not better than Artie's recording but is not without some major flaws. During My Wife and Baba O'Riley the recording suffers from severe microphone problems making the 2 songs almost unlistenable. We've included from Artie's recording (from a master>cdr sourced transfer) these 2 songs along with the originals from this recording. This was one of those rare shows in 76 where they actually played some encores after Won't Get Fooled Again and also includes the rarely played Slip Kid.
