Hip Someone who knows the score. Someone who understands jive talk Someone who is with it The expression is not subject to definition because, if you don't dig what it means, no one can ever tell you.

I have a single disc bootleg of this. Wonder if there's more material on this release.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Ho ho ho!!! "C'mon Everybody"!

A Who version of that song has never even been bootlegged in the past, not from the soundboard tapes.

I've suspected this was on the way. About 2 years ago there was a bootleg purporting to be "From The Master Reel". I got it and it was a definite source improvement from any bootleg I'd ever heard before. Much sharper and cleaner, more "master tape" sounding.

Any time that happens, something truly new and exciting hits the boot circuit this late in the game, you expect to hear about an official release coming down the road.

Well all right! Good news from the Who camp about record store day-ish releases. Now how about a little 1971 tour?!?!

Fuck yes!

But will "Relax" be complete, or still fade out mid-solo?

Now here's something else worth considering... the title specifies "April 6 1968."

The Who played two nights, April 5 and 6, and the existing bootleg has been confirmed to contain songs from BOTH shows. IIRC, the songs from the second half of the show (A Quick One, Boris The Spider, My Way, Shakin All Over, My Generation, ) came from the April 5 show, and the rest were recorded April 6. This was confirmed by comparing the boot to an audience tape known to be from one show, and some versions & stage banter matched while others did not.

Is it possible they have found the complete tapes of both nights, and not only will we get C'mon Everybody, we will also get new and different versions of half the songs in the set list? THAT would be incredible, especially if the complete show from April 5 was also scheduled for release.

The boots all have Relax & My Generation cut off mid-extended jam. The "master tape" boot had the same cuts. But it is reasonable to dream that the un-cut tapes exist and have been found for this project.

I was just looking at that. It’s a total fucking con.

Anybody who wants to pay that kind of money for four/five discs that all feature pretty much the same thing needs their head checked.
