Live Over 20 Years (Live At The Fillmore East)

The Who - Live Over 20 Years (Live At The Fillmore East)

Format/Rating/Source: CD - A- Soundboard

Date/Location/Venue: 04/05/68 - New York, NY - Fillmore East

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1988 - Italy - Koine

Comments: To my knowledge, this was the very first Who CD bootleg. Apparently at the time of its release, the laws in Italy allowed live recordings (over 20 years old) to be exempt from copyright laws, hence the title of the CD. While very exciting to have back in 1988, the source, unfortunately, was a copy from vinyl--and a little thin sounding at that. Better versions (i.e. "Shakin' All Over") have surfaced since.

Track Listing: Summertime Blues, Fortune Teller, Tattoo, Little Billy, I Can't Explain, Happy Jack, Relax, Easy Going Guy, Boris The Spider, My Generation, A Quick One, Shakin' All Over

Date/Location/Venue: 04/05/68 - New York, NY - Fillmore East, 1969 - Unknown

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1994 - Japan - Gold Standard

Comments: If you're looking for the Fillmore East boot - this is it. I might argue that "Who Are Those Masked Men?" is every-so-slightly better, but that disc is nearly impossible to find.

Track Listing:

Format/Rating/Source: CD - A - Soundboard

Date/Location/Venue: 04/05/68 - New York, NY - Fillmore East

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1996 - Japan - Midas

Comments: This CD is part of a series of CDs issued on the Midas label from Japan, which took rare, officially released album covers and modified them. This CD cover is basically the same as the original Japan, "The Who Sell Out", but with a different picture of the band inserted. The music itself seems to be copied from the "Shakin' All Over" CD (above).

Who Are Those Masked Men?

Format/Rating/Source: CD - A+ - Soundboard

Date/Location/Venue: 04/05/68 - New York, NY - Fillmore East, 1967 Beat Club, Germany & 1967 Marquee Club, London

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1998 - USA - Unknown

Comments: The Fillmore East section of this CD is among the best of the Fillmore boots - arguably slightly better than "Shakin' All Over" (above). However, the "bonus tracks from the Beat Club & Marquee Club (while soundboard in source) are very "scratchy" sounding, making these rare performances difficult to enjoy.

Track Listing:

Fillmore East '68: Summertime Blues, Fortune Teller, Tattoo, Little Billy, I Can't Explain, Happy Jack, Relax, A Quick One, Easy Going Guy, Shakin' All Over, Boris The Spider, My Generation

Date/Location/Venue: 08/10/68 - St. Charles, Illinois -  Jaguar Club

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

Comments: Interesting set list with earlier and powerful version of "Heaven And Hell", bluesy version of "Young Man Blues", a very cool version of "Daddy Rolling Stone" and an extremely long (18+ minutes) of "Magic Bus". The audience source tape is fairly clear, although it fades from channel to channel and the speed is too fast by ~5%. However, given the unique set list and performances, it's worth putting up with.
