Les fans de Quadrophenia vont pouvoir remonter sur leurs scooters car le film va faire l'objet d'une série dérivée ou un "spin-off". Les acteurs originaux vont donc se réunir dans le cadre d'une campagne très motorisée pour ensuite élaborer un film faisant référence au film de départ.

Le film original réalisé en 1979, avait pour thème le conflit qui opposait les Mods aux Rockers, le tout servi par une BOF absolument géniale.

Quadrophenia fans around the world are set to ride their scooters triumphantly as the classic film is getting a spin-off.

Original cast-members are coming together in a kickstarter campaign to have a film funded with strong cultural references to the original.

The original movie, made in 1979 captured the spirit of the Mods vs Rockers battles of the time set to an incredible soundtrack.

It was based on the 1973 rock opera of the same name by The Who. It starred Phil Daniels as Jimmy, a young 1960s London-based Mod who escapes from his dead-end job as a mailroom boy by dancing, partying, taking amphetamines, riding his scooter and brawling with the motorcycle-riding Rockers.

Le film était basé sur l'opéra-rock du même nom composé par les Who en 1973. Phil Daniels dans le rôle de Jimmy, un jeune Mod des années 60 habitant à Londres qui quitte son travail dans un centre de tri qui ne le mènera à rien pour aller danser, faire la fête, consommer des amphétamines, conduire son scooter et aller se bagarrer avec les Rockers.

The movie 'Being' stars original Quadrophenia star Mark Wingett as Doley.

Le film Being met également en scène l'acteur Mark Wingett qui jouait dans le film original, interprète le rôle de Doley

One of the rewards for backers of new spin-off film 'Being' is a Golden Prince sculpture from the Godfather of Pop Art Sir Peter Blake documentary, previously owned by Who legend Pete Townshend.

L'une des récompenses de Being accordée aux financiers du films se présentera sous la forme d'une sculpture Golden Prince réalisée par le Parrain du Pop Art pour le meilleur documentaire. Le film sera réalisé à la fin de l'été 2016 à Brighton et à Londres.

Peter Blake : Après des études de dessinateur industriel et d'arts plastiques, Peter Blake obtient une bourse pour étudier les cultures populaires en Europe. Sa première exposition a lieu en 1962. En 1967, il réalise avec Jann Haworth la couverture de l’album des Beatles Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Il récupère et mélange les images stéréotypées issues de la culture populaire anglaise. Il est, avec Richard Hamilton, l'un des pères du Pop Art anglais. En 2011, on lui confie le travail de design pour la nouvelle statuette remise lors de la cérémonie des Brit Awards en Angleterre (ce fut à Vivienne Westwood que la tâche fut attribuée l'année précédente).



Sinon autre info en août 2015, "Jimmy" a retrouvé son vieux scooter :

Roger Daltrey a confirmé l'organisation d'un méga-concert qui se tiendrait du 7 au 9 octobre 2016 à Indio en Californie et qui réunirait d'anciennes gloires des 60's (The Who,The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Roger Waters et Neil Young) :

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey says his band is confirmed for the rumoured Oct. 7-9 mega-concert of major '60s rock acts in Indio, California.

“I think it’s us and Roger Waters on the same day," said Daltrey in an interview with Postmedia Network. "I mean it’s a fantastic idea for a festival. It’s the greatest remains of our era. I’m glad we made it!”

Details of the mega-concert, said to feature Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Neil Young along with The Who and Waters performing at the Empire Polo Club, first emerged in the L.A. Times late last week but an official announcement on the show and the lineup isn’t expected from the organizers - Goldenvoice and AEG Live - for a few more weeks.

It's the same promoters responsible for the Coachella music festival which just took place in Indio.

“It’s a great idea,” said Daltrey. “I just hope a lot of normal fans can get tickets before they get snatched up.”

The Who Hits 50! tour returns to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on a new date next week, April 27, moved from April 26 after The Raptors made the NBA Playoffs and will play game five on that day against the Indiana Pacers, before heading west for five more Canadian dates in May.

Plus de 40 ans après leur dernier concert dans la ville rose, The Who sont de retour au Zénith de Toulouse mardi 14 juin 2016 ! Le groupe légendaire interprétera ses plus grands titres, de « Generation » à « Baba O’Riley ».

Depuis sa formation, en 1964, le légendaire groupe de rock britannique a vendu plus de 100 millions d’albums. La réunion de ces quatre personnalités bien distinctes est à l’origine d’un véritable ouragan musical. En effet, chaque membre du groupe s’est imposé comme pionnier, à commencer par le sauvage Keith Moon, qui rudoyait sa batterie avec une chaotique élégance. John Entwistle, bassiste flegmatique, lui, se faisait garant de l’assise, grâce à sa virtuosité mélodique digne d’un guitariste solo. Pete Townshend, l’intellectuel enragé, pavait ses chansons homériques et universelles de son jeu en “moulin à vent”, devenu légende, faisant claquer ses doigts sur les cordes sa guitare. Enfin, la voix rugissante et aérienne de Roger Daltrey enveloppait le tout, avec une sorte d’impertinence “macho” incroyablement virile.

À eux seuls, THE WHO a fait éclater en morceaux toutes les conventions du Rhythm and blues, a défié les codes sacrés de la pop, et a donné une nouvelle définition à la scène, à l’enregistrement et au vinyle, repoussant constamment le champ des possibles. Aujourd’hui, au cœur de leur 50ème année d’existence, le groupe gagne toujours en puissance et les critiques se font toujours aussi dithyrambiques.

Mardi soir, le légendaire groupe rock britannique a donné au Zénith de Toulouse ce qui devrait être son ultime concert français

Il est 20h45 quand quelque 10 000 fans ovationnent à tout rompre le guitariste et compositeur Pete Townshend et son collègue de toujours, le chanteur Roger Daltrey, respectivement 71 et 72 ans. De l'explosion du rock anglais, il y a un demi-siècle de cela, ils étaient parmi les premiers artisans.

Six musiciens additionnels soutiennent ce duo mythique et assurent un backing-band infaillible et robuste. Un salut de la main, un sourire pétille derrière les lunettes bleutées de Daltrey, et c'était parti : sans (trop) de fioriture et dans un décorum relativement simple, on attend un vrai concert, pas une kermesse rock'n'roll pyrotechnique comme proposent leurs contemporains McCartney ou Jagger/Richards. « Maximum R&B » disaient leurs affiches des années 60. On verra bien.

Townshend et ses moulinets, toujours

« I Can't Explain », « Substitute », « The Kids Are Alright »… Le show démarre avec les tous premiers tubes, ceux des années 1964-65. L'attaque idoine pour un répertoire déroulé chronologiquement. Le son est nickel, tranchant et puissant. La voix semble un peu à la peine, épaisse et comme coincée dans le gosier de Roger. Mais déjà, Pete Townshend lance son bras en l'air pour dessiner ses fameux moulinets qui claquent sur les cordes de la Stratocaster rouge. OK, on y est.

l peut être tentant de sourire avec tendresse - ou sarcasme - devant le spectacle d'un septuagénaire qui s'évertue à reproduire les mimiques de sa jeunesse frénétique. Lui-même le sait et, pas dupe, présente la chanson suivante ainsi : « For the next song, merci beaucoup and fuck off ! » : c'est « My Generation » ! Ceux qui comptaient ricaner au couplet (« I hope I die before I get old » / « J'espère mourir avant d'être vieux ») sont servis.
Le groupe qui a traversé les époques

Sur l'écran géant, défilent un montage de photos et de films d'époque. Les Who sont venus partager une dernière fois leur album-photos. Et raconter leur histoire. Celle d'un groupe de rock qui a traversé mille épopées (le mouvement Mod, la secousse Woodstock, tous types d'excès, les concerts XXL, les opéras-rock, et même le respect du mouvement punk…) et inspiré plusieurs générations.

'histoire que le concert déroule est aussi celle de ses spectateurs. Colette, 60 piges et la clope au bec, se souvient avoir découvert The Who au milieu des années 70. Elle sortait de l'adolescence et partageait sa vie avec un fan absolu du groupe. « Behind Blue Eyes » est sa chanson préférée. « A cause d'une histoire perso, vous n'avez pas besoin de savoir » rigole-t-elle. On ne connaîtra pas l'anecdote mais la chanson, elle, arrive vite.

Plutôt quinquagénaire, le public chante, s'amuse,.. Certains tentent de s'approcher un peu pour prendre une photo et sont chaque fois repoussés avec brutalité par un service d'ordre dont la hargne et l'indélicatesse demeurent incompréhensibles. Passons.
"Ben, c'est la musique des Experts !"

La voix se réchauffe, Roger Daltrey sourit, enchaîne « Join Together », « You Better You Bet », « Bargain » (« ma chanson préférée de « Who's Next », notre album le plus vendu » assure Townshend), « I Am One »… Les medleys consacrés à « Quadrophenia » et à « Tommy » rappellent que le répertoire n'est pas exempt de grandiloquence…

Le visage du batteur originel, Keith Moon, puis celui du bassiste John Entwistle envahissent l'écran dans un déroulé d'images-clé de l'actu des 50 dernières années.
A la guitare de Pete Townshend répond celle de son jeune frère Simon, côté jardin. Impeccable de bout en bout, le benjamin des Townshend assure les riffs et les parties rythmiques, sur lesquelles son ainé balance solo après solo. Au centre, le batteur Zak Starkey martèle sa double grosse caisse, tandis que Pino Palladino tricote ses lignes de basse sans transpirer ni bouger un sourcil.

Les synthés de « Who Are You ? » vrombissent. Âgé de 20 ans, Julien est mécanicien auto et porte un T-shirt de Frank Zappa. Quand un de ses copains lui demandent « C'est qui les Who ? », il répond invariablement « Ben c'est la musique des « Experts !». Chanceux, il est venu de Pau avec son père, Thierry, qui arbore sur le torse le portrait de Rory Gallagher. Lui connaît les Who depuis ce jour béni de 1976 où il a trouvé un de leurs albums (« Who Are You », justement) parmi les disques de ses grandes sœurs. « Ça et Cream, le groupe d'Eric Clapton. Deux pépites au milieu d'un paquet de disques des Rubettes et de trucs horribles…» rigole-t-il.
"Je venais pour écouter Charles Aznavour"

Nostalgique, mais pas que : le best-of livré par The Who mardi soir était bon. Par la qualité des chansons bien sûr, mais aussi par la vraie énergie que le groupe a encore à cœur de produire et communiquer. Bien sûr, la sauvagerie a fait son temps, la pertinence de certains titres aussi… Mais Pete Townshend ne mégotte pas. En vrai musicien, il n'est pas venu faire de la figuration mais jouer son œuvre en public.

Roger Daltrey, lui, est visiblement en joie. Il semble même s'amuser de ne plus pouvoir lancer le micro aussi haut qu'avant, ne plus hurler aussi longtemps le cri primal de « Won't Get Fooled Again »…

Au salut final, il se moque même de son âge prétendument canonique pour un rocker : « J'ai toujours adoré la France » explique-t-il. « J'y venais souvent pour aller écouter Charles Aznavour… quand il était jeune !». 100 minutes tout rond et le groupe quitte la scène après un long salut. C'était le dernier concert français des Who. Il n'y aura pas de rappel.

Sortie le 18/11 d'une super version deluxe de My Generation :

The Who will release an expanded 5-CD Super Deluxe Box Set of their 1965 debut album, “My Generation”, on November 18.

The extensive 79-track package features unreleased songs, demos, mixes, remasters, new notes from guitarist Pete Townshend, an 80-page book, rare memorabilia and more.

Mono and new stereo mixes of both the original album and its bonus tracks are delivered alongside a fifth disc of demos, included three unreleased songs discovered by Townshend last year that the other members of The Who hadn’t even heard: “The Girls I Could Have Had”, “As Children We Grew” and “My Own Love.”

“Gathering these demos for this collection has been enjoyable; it’s wonderful for me to have these tapes made fifty-two years ago to listen to,” says Townshend. “I hope you enjoy them. They have a naiveté and innocence, a simplicity and directness, and an ingenuousness that reveals me as a young man struggling to keep up with the more mature and developed men around me. What an incredible group of strong, talented, young and engaging men they were!”

Released in the band’s native UK in December 1966 and worldwide in April of the following year, “My Generation” was launched with the legendary and influential title track as its lead single reaching No. 2 at home at No. 78 on the US charts on its way to Gold status in the UK.

A full tracklist for the the 5-CD SuperDeluxe box set can be found below; “My Generation” will also be issued as a 3-LP and 2-LP editions on February 10, 2017.

The Who performed at the Desert Tip festival in Indio, CA last weekend, played a show in Mexico City on October 12 and will return for the classic rock festival’s second weekend with a set on October 16.

Townshend and Roger Daltrey will continue their 4-year farewell tour with a series of dates in the UK next spring.

En 2006, une compilation en trois volumes des enregistrements soundboard de 1969, non utilisés officiellement bien entendu, avait fait son apparition. L'auteur de cette compil vient de rééditer son oeuvre, avec une nouvelle remasterisation et plus de matériel. Avis personnel : c'est du lourd, du très lourd ! cheers  cheers  cheers
Ci joint toutes les explications fournies, bonne lecture ...  mrgreen

THE WHO
The Fall 1969 Soundboard Tapes
Vol. 1-5
Newly Restored & Remastered 2016 [Prof. Stoned]


This collection consists of direct-to-stereo soundboard recordings that were made for possible inclusion on a live album during The Who's 2nd American tour of 1969. The tapes ended up being rejected in favor of what became Live at Leeds. Pete Townshend drastically tried to prevent the 1969 tapes from being bootlegged by destroying them, but some of the material eventually did find its way into circulation, albeit scattered over various poorly compiled/mastered bootlegs and with very little documentation to accompany them.

Every single circulating recording from this tour has been included here with the exception of officially released material. Furthermore, the best available sources have been selected, the speed of all recordings has been corrected and everything has been newly mastered for optimal sonic consistency. A lot of the dates remain a mystery and probably always will, unless previously uncirculated recordings of this tour show up.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vol. 1 - State University of N.Y.

01. Heaven and Hell
02. Can't Explain
03. Fortune Teller
04. Overture
05. It's a Boy
06. 1921
07. Amazing Journey
08. Sparks (tape drags within)
09. Summertime Blues
10. Shakin' All Over
11. My Generation
bonus:
12. Young Man Blues

Time: 50m03s
Tr. 01-02, 09-11: unknown place/date*
Tr. 03: unknown place/date
Tr. 04-08: State University of New York, Stony brook, NY - October 18, 1969
Tr. 12: unknown place/date

*has been labeled as "McDonough Gymnasium, Georgetown University, Washington D.C. - November 2, 1969"

Note: Sourced from "Wintertime trip" and "Pure Rock Theatre". Unlike the 2006 version, the Tommy section has now been put in the middle. I have some doubts whether Tr. 01-02 and 09-11 are actually from the same show, nor have I ever seen convincing evidence that either one of these sections were recorded in D.C. This assumption seems to have arisen from Townshend's comment before the last song: "Before we go back to England, we'd just like to say; why don't all you fuckers who wanted to cause trouble, and that includes the cops, why didn't you go to Washington, because this is a rock 'n' roll concert". Why advice someone to go to Washington D.C., when you are already there?! Furthermore, it would be another 2 weeks (and 13 shows) before the band was supposed to go back to England. My uneducated guess is that this section comes from one of the last four shows of this tour (three of which were in the State N.Y.). Tr. 03 does not belong with the so-called "Georgetown" sections. I just put it there on the 2006 version and have decided to let it stay.

(P.S.: The following comment was posted by a user on DIME after he read above notes: "I attended the Georgetown show - the Who were very late arriving and the poor opening local act Love Cry Want - a sort of jazz-folk outfit - were told to keep playing, which they did for well over an hour until they were booed off the stage more or less, though they were pretty good - acoustic bass, guitar, keyboards [maybe] and a koto player - they tried but this was a Who crowd... The Who played through Tommy - which was still pretty new the States - and then, to make up for being late, they played a long encore set - I was never convinced that the recording on "Wintertime Trip" was the same show I saw, which was long and fairly loose.)"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vol. 2 - Capitol Theater

01. Heaven and Hell
02. Can't Explain
03. Fortune Teller
04. Tattoo
05. Young Man Blues
06. I'm Free (0m34s, cuts in)
07. Tommy's Holiday Camp
08. We're Not Gonna Take It
09. Summertime Blues
10. Shakin' All Over

Time: 41m57s

Tr. 01-05: Capitol Theater, Ottawa - October 15, 1969 (1st Set)
Tr. 06-10: unknown place/date

Note: Sourced from "Pure Rock Theatre" except for two tracks which appear in slightly cleaner quality on "Wintertime trip". There is some tape warbling on Tr. 01 & 10 and some of the tracks are faded abruptly. I remedied this by flying in some audience response from a different source to maintain the feel of a live-show. The majority of the Tommy section of this show was officially released in 2013 on the Super Deluxe Boxset version of Tommy, none of which had previously circulated on ROIO or bootleg.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vol. 3 - Fillmore East

01. Jerry Pompili Introduction
02. Heaven and Hell
03. Can't Explain
04. Fortune Teller
05. Young Man Blues
06. Overture
07. It's a Boy
08. 1921
09. Amazing Journey (fragment missing within)
10. Sparks
11. Eyesight to the Blind
12. We're Not Gonna Take It (1m29s, cuts in)
13. Summertime Blues
14. Shakin' All Over

Time: 50m26s

Tr. 01-11: Fillmore East, New York, NY - October 22, 1969
Tr. 12-14: unknown date, assumed to be from the same venue

Note: The Who played 8 shows in 6 days at the Fillmore East Theatre from Monday Oct. 20 to Saturday Oct. 25, 1969. Tr. 01-11 were recorded during one of these shows for sure, most likely the third one on Oct. 22, if we go by the remarks Pete makes after Fortune Teller: ("See, we don't play the same thing every night", "Every night the same amplifier is always blown up during the solo of the first song" & "We have only done three shows so far").We can faintly hear Pete have a tantrum over the malfunctioning amplifier after the first song, so this show should probably be counted as one of those three. The announcer has often been mistaken to be the late Bill Graham (legendary promotor, not the TV preacher), but the voice actually belongs to Jerry Pompili, an associate of Graham's.
Sourced from "Accept No Substitute" & "Wintertime Trip". The latter only has a part of the Tommy section from the Fillmore shows and was sourced from a tape with better fidelity. Tr. 12-14 might be from another night. This section runs slower than the rest on the "Accept No Substitute" and there's no sign of the buzzing in John's amp which can be heard between interludes on the first part. Also, there is a 50 second fragment of an unidentified version of "Amazing Journey" on "Accept No Substitute" between Tr. 11 & 12 (not included here) which doesn't match with Tr. 09 or the versions from 1969/10/15, 1969/10/18 & 1969/10/19.

Vol. 4 - Electric Factory

01. Heaven and Hell (1m40s, cuts in)
02. Can't Explain
03. Overture
04. It's a Boy
05. 1921
06. Amazing Journey
07. Sparks
08. Acid Queen (2m41s, cuts off)
09. Summertime Blues
10. My Generation
bonus:
11. Fortune Teller
12. Young Man Blues

Time: 49m02s

Tr. 01-10: Electric Factory, Philadelphia, PA - October 19, 1969
Tr. 11-12: unknown place/date

Note: Tracks 01-10 are sourced from "Electric Factory 1969". The recording is marred (or enhanced, depending on your perspective) somewhat by a technical malfunction; the sound of the guitar distorts whenever it is turned up on the P.A. and at the very end of the recording we can hear an English guy mutter "Fucking P.A., bad up here". The Who played two shows at 4pm and 8pm. This portion is sourced from the late show. Tr. 11 & 12 were compiled from "Who is Tommy?" & "Live at Leeds Rejects"; the latter source has superior sound but misses the first 21 seconds of Tr. 12 plus the lengthy announcement by Pete.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vol. 5 - Acetates

01. Heaven And Hell
02. Can't Explain
03. Fortune Teller
04. Tattoo
05. Young Man Blues
06. Summertime Blues
07. Shakin' All Over
bonus:
08. My Generation

Time: 46m28s

Tr. 01-10: unknown place/date

Note: As mentioned below, these tracks all originate from the reference acetates that were made by Damon Lyon-Shaw at IBC studios in Jan. 1970. Tr. 01-05 & 06-07 are likely from 2 different nights. All are sourced from "Live at Leeds Rejects". Tr. 08 is of lesser audio quality and comes from "Who is Tommy". There were two needle skips on this track which I repaired by patching the missing fragments in from "1969 Autumn Acetates", along with the last 5 minutes of this song. Funny enough, this ROIO does not have the skips even though it clearly originates from the same scratchy acetate.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some Lo-Fi Extra's

01. Can't Explain
02. Fortune Teller
03. Young Man Blues
04. My Generation (6m59s, cuts off)

Time: 20m02s

Tr. 01-04: unknown place/date (Tr. 4 was reported to be from one of the Fillmore shows)

Note: More from the acetates. All are sourced from "Who is Tommy" except for the last track which was taken from an unknown tape source. There is a small fragment missing on Tr. 02 due to a needle skip, which appears on the "1969 Autumn Acetates" version as well, so I remedied it somewhat by replacing it with a piece from earlier in the song. Tr. 03 is the same version as on Vol. 1 but appears in stereo here. I suspect Tr. 01-02 (and possibly 03 as well) are from the same show as Tr. 06-07 from Vol. 5.

==================================================================================

Lineage:

SDB > ? > Silver bootleg CD* > EAC > WAV > Mastering > FLAC (lvl 8, SBE aligned)

* with the exception of Electric Factory which was sourced from a 1st generation securely burned CDR.

Mastering was done using Cubase 5, using Universal Audio Hardware (See: http://www.uaudio.com/store/plug-in-...ng-bundle.html). Playback on PMC IB2s monitors.

==================================================================================

Audio sources:

- Accept No Substitute (CD, Big 011, 1992)
Sourced from tape of unknown generation (I suspect 3rd or 4th) and runs a bit slow.

- Who is Tommy? (2CD, Dynamite Studio, DS94-A077, 1993)
Sourced from acetate recordings dubbed to tape of unknown generation. Quality not too great and quite a few skips and surface noise from the acetates.

- Pure Rock Theatre (CD, Hiwatt ZA59, 1996)
Quite clean sound on the 1969 tracks which implies a low generation tape source but digital noise reduction was used heavy handedly during the mastering process, which mostly affects the quieter spots. Runs slightly off-speed.

- Wintertime Trip (CD, Dandelion DL 112, 1999)
Again quite a clean source with a wealth of great material, but this too suffers slightly from a digital noise reduction treatment. Most of the material is off-speed.

- Electric Factory 1969 (CD, NightHawk NH-02013, 2002)
A pretty clean source without noise reduction. Runs off-speed.

- Live at Leeds Rejects (CD, Jack Of Hearts JOH 3, 2003)
A slightly off-speed source but in great quality. Presumably sourced from acetate but no audible skips or surface noise.

- 1969 Autumn Acetates ROIO
Low-fi compilation sourced from a 2nd generation cassette.

==================================================================================

Recording Setup/History:

All 33 shows of The Who's 2nd North-American tour in 1969 were recorded directly to stereo on a Vortexion tape recorder by the band's long-serving (and long-suffering) live-soundengineer Bob Pridden. Pete Townshend had hoped to compile a live-album from these tapes, as had been requested by American record-company Decca. The setup was very simple: Pridden used the mono P.A. mix (heard within the center of the stereo panorama) and supplemented it with two strategically placed mics on the stage which picked up the guitar, bass and drums in stereo. Pridden adjusted the balance on-the-fly and the overall results were quite decent. Townshend was pleased with the quality when he got to hear some of the tapes during the tour.

After the tour, Townshend asked Pridden to review the recordings. Shortly after Christmas 1969, when the two met up again to discuss the project, it turned out that Pridden had listened to all the tapes but had neglected to make notes and was unable to give directions on what material he deemed useable for release. Another 7 British shows had been added to the pile at this point and Townshend did not feel like wadding through 70+ hours of concert footage. So he told the soundengineer to hire a mobile recording unit to record two dates in February 1970 instead. When asked what to do with the 1969 stereo tapes, Townshend ordered all of them to be destroyed. Pridden dutifully burned all reels in a bonfire in his garden and kept only or two tapes in his archive.
However, this was not before 2 master reels of selected material were prepared on January 6, 1970 by Damon Lyon-Shaw (resident engineer at I.B.C. Studios). A tapesheet of the first reel as pictured in the "Anyway Anyhow Anywhere" book by Andy Neill & Matt Kent can be seen below. The tracks on Reel #1 were: "Young Man Blues" #1 "Can't Explain" "Fortune Teller" "Young Man Blues" #2 "Summertime Blues" "Shakin' All Over" "Tattoo" & "My Generation"^.

The main reason why Pete Townshend had wanted the tapes destroyed was fear of bootlegging. Such was his paranoia, that he made a point of warning Pridden that if the tapes were ever to be bootlegged, the soundengineer would be held responsible. Townshend came to regret his decision later on and even called it one of his greatest mistakes in his autobiography. The ultimate irony in this story is that some of the material did eventually find its way to bootleggers over two decades later. Most likely, these fragments originated from tape copies made in late 69/early 70 when the tapes were being reviewed. The band and Bob Pridden seemed to have no prior knowledge of the existence of these recordings.

In 2013, the band finally released a portion of one of their surviving tapes officially on the "Tommy" Super Deluxe Edition. The fact that the producers failed to find any versions of the last three Tommy tracks from the Fall 1969 tour to round out the disc, makes it seem like indeed almost nothing from the 40 recorded shows has survived in the official Who archives*.


^ (This might very well be the material that can be heard on Vol. 5, even though there's no sign of "Heaven and Hell". "Young Man Blues" #1 could be the version on Vol. 4. Whatever the case, a number of recordings were mastered to acetate, including a couple of alternative versions of the same tracks, among them the bonus tracks on Vol. 01+04, Tr. 01+02 of "Some Lo-Fi Extra's" and the version of "Fortune Teller" on Vol. 4.)
* (among these was the Coliseum, London show from December 14, 1969 which had been filmed by Kit Lambert & Chris Stamp and was eventually issued in full on DVD as a bonus to the 1977 Kilburn show. The soundtrack seems to exist in lo-fi mono only. The film footage itself was also nearly thrown out until Jeff Stein saved it from a garbage can at the Track Records headquarters in the late 70's.)

==================================================================================

It has been 10 years since I first started this series. As you may know, Vol. 4+5 did not get completed at the time, even though the first 3 volumes were (and continue to be) quite popular. All three ended up being professionally bootlegged on various CD's and Vol. 1 even made it to some lavishly packaged colored vinyl release in 2013 (no, I did not buy it.)

So why revisit this now? Quite frankly; I felt the mastering work on the 2006 volumes could be improved upon. But that's not the only reason; the requests to finish the series never really stopped and there was still some great material left that I had received from a few helpful people. Luckily, I kept my notes from 2006 which made it a lot easier to complete Vol. 4+5. I pieced Vol. 1-3 together again from scratch, rather than using the original unmastered files and this has led to some new insights which helped improving the overall quality.

Enjoy,
PS

Le Live At Leeds va être réédité le 25 novembre en triple LP présentant ainsi l'intégralité du mythique concert :

The forthcoming The Who Live at Leeds vinyl reissue will be a three-LP package that features the FULL setlist, as played on the night.

This will be a half-speed mastered 33RPM pressing and unlike the two-CD deluxe edition issued in 2001, this new vinyl release will feature the 33-song set in the order that the songs were performed on the night (Valentine’s Day 1970!)

This is packaged as a six-panel gatefold with three inner bags. SDE ran a deal alert for this last week (now finished), but even the non-deal price of £25 in the UK is pretty good for a triple vinyl, half-speed mastered set that celebrates this landmark live album.

This will be released on 25 November 2016 (Amazon UK still doesn’t reflect this)

Durant ces dates, le groupe compte ré-interpréter Tommy dans son intégralité, chose qui n'avait pas été faite depuis 1989 et qui avait été immortalisée sur le triple live Join Together.
