The 1969 Soundboard Tapes Vol. 3 - Restored & Remastered [no label, 1CD]

Thanks to Prof. Stoned who restored, edited and mastered the tracks, and especially for sharing them on the Dime site. Thanks too to G. The Cock for the artwork.

Prof. Stoned’s notes:

“The recordings here - save for one track - are sourced from the bootleg: Accept No Substitute from 1992. The CD uses a tape source of unknown generation (I suspect 1st or 2nd) and it runs very slow. Speeds have been adjusted, sources have been compared, an extra track has been added and it has been mastered. All this for the optimal listening experience.

“The Who played five days in a row in the Fillmore East Theatre from October 20 to 25, 1969. This is one of them for sure, but it’s not entirely certain which day we have here. Because Of Pete’s remarks after Fortune Teller (”See, we don’t play the same every night”, “Every night the same amplifier is always blown up during the solo of the first song” and “We have only done three shows so far”) Wednesday, October 22, seems to be a likely date, but it could be October 23 too.

“I have compared the last four tunes to the versions on the following official release: Live At Leeds (Deluxe Edition), Live at the Isle of Wight 1970, The Kids are Alright (CD+DVD), 30 Years of Maximum RnB (DVD) & The Woodstock Diaries (DVD) and none of the versions matched. Although we do not know the exact date for the other songs, they are 100 per cent certainly from between 20 and 25 October 1969, and have not been officially released.”

  3. Pete is marvelously mad, ranting about the amps, the audience and the light show.

    Young Man’s Blues is a crusher.
