Year & Country Issued/Label: 1999 - Unknown - Unknown

Comments: This is a really neat piece. Odd typo for the title (should be "Shepperton Studio Rehearsals) as it even mentions the correctly spelled, "Shepperton" on the back cover. Most of the tracks here are live, Pete Townshend rehearsals and recorded with very good sound quality. The "bonus" tracks seem to be added as filler, as they are available <more complete> elsewhere. The packaging on this CD almost seems homemade, but it appears to be a silver disc (vs. CDr).

Track Listing: Shepperton '79: Drowned (take 1), Drowned (take 2), I'm One, Blue Suede Shoes, False Start, Let's See Action (take 1), Bargain (take 1), Won't Get Fooled Again (edit), Big Boss Man, Let's See Action (take 2), Tattoo, Cat's In The Cupboard, Bargain (take 2), Drowned (takes 3&4), Messing Around, Let's See Action (take 3)

Date/Location/Venue: 09/16/79 - New York, NY - Madison Square Garden

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1979 - USA - Creative Artistry

Date/Location/Venue: 12/08/79 - Chicago, IL - International Amphitheater

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2005 - Japan - Wardour

Comments: Fair mono soundboard - seems to be sourced from a video. Some tracks are clean, others are slightly distorted. The volume seems to start out loud on several tracks, then lowers. Great performance of "Dance It Away"

Title/Format/Rating/Source: Gonna Rape You - LP - C+ - Audience

Date/Location/Venue: 12/15/79 - New Haven, CT - Memorial Coliseum

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1980 - USA - Vinyl Dreams

Comments: I remember reading in Ed Hanel's Discography, that this one was rated as "Excellent", so I drove all over NYC trying to find it. When I finally got it on a turntable, the smile disappeared from my face, because to my standards, this one sounded like shit. Unfortunately, one of the problems of not doing the reviews yourself. Anyway, this is another "OK" audience recording, that I really wish was excellent!

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1980 - Japan - Unknown

Comments: For some reason, I thought that this one might have been a more complete soundboard of the tracks that were officially released ("Concert For The People Of Kampuchea" - see Who Related Albums section). However, as most of the recordings from this time period, another "OK" audience recording.

Track Listing: Substitute, I Can't Explain, Baba O'Riley, Sister Disco, Behind Blue Eyes, 5.15, The Punk And The Godfather, Who Are You, Summertime Blues, Dancing In The Street, The Real Me
