Title/Format/Rating: Tommy (London Symphony Orchestra) - CD - A-

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2005 - Russia - Polydor (fake)

Comments: Pirate 2CD pressing of the 1972 "Tommy" performed with The London Symphony Orchestra. It appears to be an excellent dub off of a clean LP, with some added noise reduction. "Pinball Wizard" has a bad edit, approximately 1:05 into the song. The sound quality on this CD is good, but the 1991 circa legitimate CD pressings are better.

Title/Format/Rating: The Tommy Demos - CD - A

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1991 - Germany - Yellow Dog

Comments: Great CD of Pete Townshend's demos of "Tommy". The two John Entwistle tracks are mono outtakes of the studio versions. Compare with "Alternate Tommy" as this CD is "bass heavy" vs. that one being "bass light".

Track Listing: Overture, It's A Boy, 1921, Amazing Journey, Sparks, Christmas, Cousin Kevin, The Acid Queen, Underture, Do You Think It's Alright?, Fiddle About, Pinball Wizard, There's A Doctor, Go To The Mirror, Success, Tommy Can You Hear Me?, Smash The Mirror, Sensation, Miracle Cure, Sally Simpson, I'm Free, Welcome, Tommy's Holiday Camp, We're Not Gonna Take It

Title/Format/Rating: Too Late The Hero Sessions - CD - A

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2010 - Japan - Ear of Wheat

Comments: The "Too Late The Hero Sessions" were apparently recorded at Crystal Studios, Hollywood, CA - July 16, 1979 with John, Joe Walsh and Joe Vitale. I believe John worked on "Too Late The Hero" on and off for about 2 years before finally releasing the album in 1981...  

Essentially these tracks are "raw" outtakes from "Too Late The Hero" as the "band" was working the songs out. These are different than the bonus tracks on the expanded "Too Late The Hero" CD, which also feature some of the same titles. This works out great for me, as I can never get enough of "Dancing Master" - one of my favorite John solo songs. The "dueling bass solos" on each version of the song are different from each other and equally great!   This collection of songs also includes 2 songs that weren't released on the final album, "Countryside Boogie" (aka "Wild Horses") and "Back On The Road". A version of the former was released as a bonus track on the expanded "Whistle Rymes" and a completed version of the latter was released on "Music From Van Pires". Both of these songs were attempted to be released by John for several projects, but they never seemed to "fit". I believe that "Countryside Boogie" probably didn't see its first version until at least 1975 (not sure how it ended up on "Whistle Rymes" (1972)) and "Back On The Road" (the demo had Kenney Jones on drums) was probably meant for "Face Dances" as the "ballad" semi-auto bio version of John vs. "The Quiet One". I've always really liked this song and you can see clearly John's feelings of "life on the road" vs. Pete's (which are quite the opposite).  

If you are a fan of John's solo work and specifically "Too Late The Hero", this is a must have.

Track Listing: Countryside Boogie/Suicidal Rock And Roll, Lovebird, I'm Coming Back, Dancing Master, Back On The Road, Sleeping Man, Sax Tracking Ent-7

Title/Format/Rating: Unsurpassed Masters/Rough Mixes - CD - A

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2010 - EU - Audifon

Comments: Outtakes and alternate mixes from original master tapes. The liner notes say:

"About this CD, all tracks come from 10" reel to reel tapes, which were recorded at Olympic Sound Studios in London. They are unfinished mixes and outtakes.

More specifically, this is a collection of the songs from Pete's "Rough Mix" album, in outstanding sound quality. One of the aspects of "Rough Mix" that I love so much, is how well it is recorded. It has a very "natural" sound to it. When played, it's as if Pete and company are right in the same room as you. It was a great surprise to come across this CD. I suppose that someone tossed some tapes into a dumpster and someone else "garbage picked" them. So be it - this is great stuff.   What you mostly find on this CD, is not extreme variations. The instrumental parts of the album seem to be <mostly> the same as the released version, but what this does include is alternate vocal performances that are a little less polished and really really cool. There are also some "backing track" only (no vocals) versions, which is great if you are the type of person who likes "karaoke".  

Possibly the biggest variation (from the released version) is the version of "Keep Me Turning", which is incorrectly labeled as "Keep Me Turning (backing track)" - there are actually 2 different outtake versions of the song (vs. 1 backing track).   The only "flaw" in the CD is that the 2nd version of "Till The Rivers All Run Dry" abruptly ends prematurely a few moments before the song would naturally end. If you have any software tools and that was important to you, you could always fade it out yourself...  

Not sure why they created the track listing this way. I personally prefer listening to music in the same "track order" I'm used to, vs. scrambling things up - but that's easy enough to fix if one is motivated to do so...

Track Listing: Till The Rivers All Run Dry,  Heart to Hang Onto (backing track), Heart to Hang Onto, Nowhere to Run, Hear Me Clearly (instrumental), Misunderstood (backing track), Misunderstood, Keep Me Turning (backing track), Keep Me Turning, Silly Little Man #1, Silly Little Man #2, My Baby Gives It Away, Catmelody , April Fool, Street in the City, Till The Rivers All Run Dry

Title/Format/Rating: Web Songs 2002 - CD - A

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2002 - USA - Laughing Weasel Records

Comments: All of these songs (mostly demos) were available on Pete Townshend's website and originally intended for an official, Eel Pie (Pete's record label) release. Apparently someone downloaded them and created their own CD. The CD comes with a nice booklet, using Pete's original website "liner notes" for each of the songs. Excellent sound quality.

Track Listing: Flying Boy, I Am An Animal, There Is No Message In A Broken Heart, Lazy Fat People, Why D'You Stand So Close To That Man Last Night, King Rabbit, I Am Secure, The Shout, Drumming, Crashing By Design, Cool Jerk, I Wish I was A Good As I Look, Latin Thing, Looking For Words, A Man Without A Woman, You'll Never Be Alone Again, Rat Run, How Did You Love Me Then?

Title/Format/Rating: The Who '66 - CD - A-

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2002 - EU - Polyboy

Comments: This is a neat little CD. They took what was officially released, and then used the opposite versions (i.e. if something was released officially in mono, it's in stereo on this CD and vice versa). The credits have some mistakes, but I've corrected them below. The basis of the "A Quick One" tracks here is the 1966 German LP, "The Who" (similar to the cover on the bootleg).

Track Listing: Run, Run, Run (mono version), Heatwave (stereo), In The City (mono), Boris The Spider (stereo), I Need You (stereo), Circles (simulated stereo), Don't Look Away (stereo), See My Way (simulated stereo), Whiskey Man (stereo), Cobwebs and Strange (stereo), Disguises (stereo), I'm A Boy (stereo), So Sad About Us (simulated stereo), A Quick One While He's Away (stereo), Batman (mono), Bucket "T" (rehearsal/simulated stereo), Barbara Ann (mono), Doctor, Doctor (mono), I've Been Away (mono), Happy Jack (mono), Signal 30, Batman (instrumental version), Disguises (Pete Townshend demo), I'm A Boy (Pete Townshend demo), Daddy Rolling Stone (live Shindig-US-TV, 10/65)

Title/Format/Rating: The Who Music Must Change - CD - A-

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1997 - Japan - Noriaa

Comments: Great "Who Are You" demos. I got the impression that these were taken off of an older, pre-Dolby cassette tape, as 2 of the songs "fade out" probably where the tape was flipped. In spite of that and some tape hiss, the sound quality is very good. "Affirmation" is from one of Pete Townshend's Meher Baba albums and "Baba O'Riley" is the "Lifehouse" instrumental version.

Track Listing: Who Are You, Love Is Coming Down, New Song, Sister Disco, Never Ask Me, Like It The Way It Is, Love Is Wine, Broken Nails, Keep On Working, Guitar And Pen, Music Must Change, Empty Glass, No Road Romance, Affirmation, Baba O'Riley

Title/Format/Rating: The Who Sell Out Mono Edition - CD - A-

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2002 - EU - Polyboy

Comments: The mono "Who Sell Out" has not been re-issued and it contains several mix variations from its stereo counterpart. Unfortunately, the mastering changes throughout the LP, and the parties that dubbed this (and did a pretty good job) did not re-EQ it accordingly. The "bonus" tracks seem to be dubbed from the various rarity LPs and the two Pete Townshend demos, directly from Pete's old website! The last track, "Pictures of Lily" is something that I've never heard before - it sounds like a rehearsal. Pretty cool version and mostly instrumental.

Comments: Pirate copy of the USA "Who Sings My Generation" (mono, original mix) CD and remastered "The Who Sell Out" (either Germany Polydor or USA MCA) with an interesting twist - somehow in the dubbing process of the "My Generation" part, this CD's mastering is actually better than the source disc. It has a smoother sound and more bass than the MCA.

Title/Format/Rating: You Are Who? - CD - A-

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2003 - Unknown - HH

Comments: Compare with "The Who: Music Must Change" above. The Pete Townshend "Who Are You" session demos seem to be directly copied from that disc, but a bit of noise reduction was used to reduce the hiss (and also some of the "fullness" of the sound). Additional tracks (noted below) are taken from, "The Kids Are Alright" (TKAA) video (pre-2003 DVD) and are slightly sped up as in the video. "Peppermint Lump" is taken from the Angie single (which is produced by Pete Townshend and features his backing vocals and guitar - see Who Related Singles <Peppermint Lump> for more details).

Track Listing: Who Are You (TKKA), Who Are You (demo), Love Is Coming Down (demo), New Song (demo), Sister Disco (demo), Never Ask Me (demo), Like It The Way It Is (demo), Love Is Wine (demo), Keep On Working (demo), Guitar And Pen (demo), Music Must Change (demo), Empty Glass (demo), No Road Romance (demo), Barbara Ann (TKKA), Peppermint Lump (Angie single)
