When I was still in high school, The Who played a stop on their US Tour in St. Charles Illinois. The opening act was the New Blue Cheer. I attended that concert, held at an old automobile dealership building. This is when The Who were still doing their equipment smashing, and Keith Moon was still alive.

After all these years, I was doing some web searching, just to see what I could find out about that concert, and discovered that someone had actually taped that concert and had converted it to a digital format!! The quality is pretty low, as is to be expected, but it is a treat to hear a super group before they were a super group. As I recall, their version of Magic Bus was really long, and the end result was that the concert ran long and the management asked The Who to cut their set short.

The digital copy is missing the first song (Substitute) of their set for some reason. Otherwise, it appears to be the concert as I remember it.

I have a ZIP file of the songs in FLAC format. The file is about 350 MB. If anyone is interested in having it, let me know and I will figure out how to get it to you.

Here's an April '68 Boot:

PART 1 - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=IXU3R163

PART 2 - http://www.megaupload.com/?d=3XYC4BKB

The Who - Fillmore East. [Sunrise SR-0012]
Recorded Live at Fillmore East, New York City, USA - April 6, 1968.
Excellent Soundboard Recording -> Bootleg Silver CD :: CBR 320 kbps.
01. Summertime Blues
02. Fortune Teller
03. Tattoo
04. Little Billy
05. I Can't Explain
06. Happy Jack
07. Relax
08. A Quick One while He#s Away
09. My May
10. Shakin' All Over
11. Boris The Spider
12. My Generation
Bonus Tracks
13. I'm A Boy
14. Substitute
15. My Generation

Personnel: Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwistle, Keith Moon.

Notes: One of the best and most bootlegged Who shows from this era. It documents their transition from a "pop" band into hard rock jamming. Shakin' All Over is a very long jam that showcases PT's lead guitar styles and how well JAE is in tune to Pete's playing. Relax is another worthy psychedelic guitar jam. There are various versions of this show around that claim to be from different dates and slightly different set lists that at times omit Summertime Blues and / or the mini opera (A Quick One) and / or My Generation. Some claim to be from April 5, 1968, some from April 6, 1968 (taken from thewho.net).
