notes: great show, if not a little ragged, the band made a couple of mistakes here
and there.... the two most noticeable to me, first note of "Cut My Hair" way off-key,
and Rog seemed to come in too early on the first verse of WGFA and kept on going... it
then seemed like the band didn't know whether to keep on going too, but Pete finally got them
back on track at the end of the passage.... easily the most disjointed version
of that song that I've heard.... still, everyone left a satisfied customer, which
is all that matters.... besides, with the setlist starting to be the same nightly,
those little off-moments are what makes one show different from another...

notes: another great show by The Who, definitely worth the money.... not too
many glitches tonight, but Rogers mic did cut out briefly during "Doctor Jimmy",
causing him great consternation, but it apparently was back on when he threw it
to the floor, because you'll hear it thump as it hits the ground.... the older guy next
to me sat down during almost the whole show due to back problems, but "Pinball Wizard"
got him on his feet clapping and you'll hear him singing off-key during almost the
whole song....

Notes: great show by The Who... I was about 15 rows back, DFC, and I'm pretty happy with the
results..... there were a couple of mistakes by the band here and there, and it took the soundguy
a couple songs to really get dialed in on the mix and a few songs to crank up the volume, but still
a nice clear recording overall, IMO.... not too much crowd noise on the recording, either, which
always makes me happy when that happens.... anyway, Simon took lead vocals on "The Dirty Jobs"... and
they "flew in" a John Entwistle bass solo during "5:15" complete with John's "bass cam" on the big screen
and also used Keith Moon's vocals for "Bell Boy" while showing footage of him singing during what looks to me
to be from the Charlton show from 1974..... in both instances, it worked great....

The Who in the Carolina's  doing Quadrophenia, what can be better. Had a great time at both shows (Greenville will be up soon. Very good to excellent audience recording. Crowd noise bleeds in on occasion but it is a good representation of what it was like.  Pete seemed in a good mood and Roger was in strong voice both here and in Greenville the night before. It was a long trip fromTexas to go see them but well worth it.

RE-UP: The Who "Quadrophenia - Can You See The Real Me?" - 1DVD

Quadrophenia-Can you see the real me ?

BBC Four Documentary

Broadcast 29th June 2012

Proshot DVD

In his home studio and revisiting old haunts in Shepherds Bush and Battersea, Pete Townshend opens his heart and his personal archive to revisit 'the last great album the Who ever made', one that took the Who full circle back to their earliest days via the adventures of a pill-popping mod on an epic journey of self-discovery.

But in 1973 Quadrophenia was an album that almost never was. Beset by money problems, a studio in construction, heroin-taking managers, a lunatic drummer and a culture of heavy drinking, Townshend took on an album that nearly broke him and one that within a year the band had turned their back on and would ignore for nearly three decades.

With unseen archive and in-depth interviews from Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, John Entwistle and those in the studio and behind the lens who made the album and thirty page photo booklet.

Contributors include: Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ethan Russell, Ron Nevison, Richard Barnes, Irish Jack Lyons, Bill Curbishley, John Woolf, Howie Edelson, Mark Kermode and Georgiana Steele Waller.

The Who in South Carolina for the first time.  Since they are not coming to Texas this tour I made the trip to see them in the Carolina's.
I had great seats but lousy (loud) neightbors to my left.  There was the WHOHOO guy right next to my mics so watch between songs
if you are playing this loud. He and his friend talked a lot during the show. It is not completely overwhelming or anything, but it is there.
And during Tea and Theater they left and were replaced by an even more obnoxious jackass who thought everyone was there listen to him
talk alot of crap.

That is the bad. The good is that it is a great show. I am really happy they put Drowned back as an electric piece. All thoughI love the
acoustic version also, my favortie versions of  it have always been the electric versions from 82. And though it was not quite up to those
standards it was a great change.   Roger's voice is strong,  While driving to the Greensboro show I listened to one of the Encore series
shows from 2006 and his voice was so much weaker then than it is now.  Pete played great and looked to be in good spirits the whole time.

Recorder: UNIVONC
SEAT: ROW 4 Left (In front of Pete Townsend)


Well originally had 17th row tickets for this event.
Played around on the net and found 4th row seats the day before.
Was able to sell my tickets to a fellow Dimer.

The good news is that they were 4th row tickets.......

They were also in a section of VIP ticket purchasers who had taken advantage of the all you can drink alcohol bar behind the stage.
Some chatter during show but not that distracting.
Found it quite amusing.

Fact:  This was the FIRST South Carolina appearance of the band in it's existance.
My son was also with me and it was great to see him enjoy the show and check on the Virigina Tech game score.....
It was great to hear him say that he thought it was a memory to see a such a historic band.

Pete was really into the show and started to show his enjoyment.
It was better last night than the 1986 show in Lexington, Ky

The show is pleasing to my ears and I hope you enjoy!

Bill

This recording has been circulating since '89 however this version is a new master cassette
transfer from my original analog master tape (Mar. 2010).

Another great show, this was my 3rd time seeing The Who. Pretty nice set list with some real rarities.
This show was 2 days before the LA show where the official Join Together video was shot. Decent sound on this one as there was a lot of chatter where i was. Recorded from the Field Level section 33 Row 22.

Notes:
The Who in 1989...the Who on ice...the vegas show...Many things have been said about this tour, most not good. I enjoyed these shows though. It was a celebration of the Who's career played out in stadiums mostly with a great band that was, for the most part, The Deep End with John and Roger on board. The great Simon Phillips on drums, the great Kick Horns, Jodie Linscott on percussion.   The only weak link in this band was Steve Bolton on guitar and the tour's finest moments were when PT took over on electric. Toronto couldn't have been more of a surprise. A band not known for adventurous setlists suddenly were all over the place.Tommy, solo material, covers, songs they hadn't played in more than two decades! The shows were comprised of two sets, which started out totalling about 3 hours before being pared down after about 3 weeks on the road. Roger was in great voice, John never better on bass and Pete alternated between acoustic guitar and electric guitar and sometimes really PLAYED the electric guitar! I recorded these shows on a new Panasonic dat deck I bought for this tour. With the exception of my car it was the most expensive thing I had ever bought and it would get hot enough to fry an egg on! Pittsburgh has a great Naked Eye. Buffalo has my favorite moment of the whole tour, and one of the best PT moments ever in an astounding Hey Joe. Pete finds a new pedal at the end of the first verse and then adds a great coda to finish the song.

As the band resumes the tour and starts the last run of shows, we have quite an enthusiastic audience here. In this recording, they are sometimes too powerful. The sound on here is rather rough and not well-resolved, and to top it off we get the occasional taper talk as well. Too bad, because it sounds as if the band is playing well here. It's hard to tell if Roger is having a good night or a bad night here. My vote is good, but your mileage might vary here.

Notes:
JEMS master recording and excellent sounding recording. This is the first time(August 2009) a transfer of this recording has been made available directly from the master cassette.

This is my recording of the second night of the 'Worldwind Tour' which consisted of 2 shows at the Capital Centre just outside Washington D.C. and 2 shows in Florida.  We were a bit further back this night, but the show was better and the band were sharper than the first night.  There was a false ending for Magic Bus, and as the applause started I stopped the deck to flip the tape, and they began to play again briefly,  so there is a unfortunate cut at the end there.
