60's CDs

Last updated 26/04/2008



Ø The High Numbers Live 1964 (First 11 tracks are the Railway Hotel performance, the rest are Studio recordings from late 1964 that are all instrumentals B+)
Ø Orphans Volume 1, 2 & 3 (When this collection was first in circulation it would have been a must have for any fan. Tracklisting features alternative takes, different mixes, B-sides and live performances. Since then a lot of them have surfaced on remasters etc. It's still a great set. A)
Ø High Numbered (Tracks recorded for the BBC early on in the Who's career, mostly live soundboard, A)
Ø My Generation (Original English Album plus bonus tracks, I'd recommend the remastered My Generation over this, but then again this bootleg has the guitar overdubs, where as the remaster doesn't. Studio, A)
Ø A Stereo Quick One (Stereo version of a Quick One, better sound than even the remastered Quick One. Studio, A)
Ø Dallas 23/07/1967 (Listenable audience considering the year recorded. Recommended B)

Ø Rochester 30/08/1967 (The person who recorded this was obviously nearer the stage so the sound is louder but more distorted B-)
Ø Fillmore East 1968 (Great classic bootleg, Soundboard A+)
Ø Jaguar Club 10/08/1968 (Audience recording, not very clear but ok for that time. Young Man Blues sounds a bit more jazzy, and must have the longest version of Magic Bus, worth having for that alone. B-)

Ø The Tommy Demos (Pete's demos of all the Tommy songs, well worth having A)
Ø Woodstock 1969 (Must have, A+)

Ø Electric Factory 1969 (Shorter version of the Philadelphia concert 1969, very good A+)
