    I like to see ‘Relax’ unedited without the fade out on the end like the boots I have heard.

    But I doubt it.
  7. You're in luck. 2 CD set is listed in the amazon link.
  8. Hmmm, well look at that. Always thought this was one of the band's best-ever recorded performances - and of particular interest because it's one of the few well-recorded pre-Tommy gigs. However, the long-in-circulation boot never did it justice because of the ear bleed mastering some genius worked on it. So it will be very interesting to hear audio samples of the new remastering here. I also note that the track lineup is a bit different than the boot - with "I'm a Boy" now included - and am hopeful that they have a complete version of "A Quick One" rather than the truncated boot version.

    Product Description
    "April 2018 – the 50th anniversary of these legendary unreleased recordings from the Fillmore East, New York City, Friday April 5 & Saturday April 6, 1968. Both nights were recorded by Who manager Kit Lambert with the intention of releasing as the Who’s fourth album after Sell Out and before Tommy. Songs from the second night have been restored and mixed by Who sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was there in 1968). Remastered for optimum sound quality, this will enhance The Who’s reputation as the best live act of the time, regarded by fans as something of a ‘holy grail’ in live shows. Features stunning extended versions of My Generation, A Quick One…, Shakin’ All Over and many other Who classics. Features two ripping versions of Eddie Cochran numbers – Summertime Blues and C’mon Everybody (the latter unavailable elsewhere), Fortune Teller played at these shows for the first time and unique live versions of Tattoo and Relax from ‘Who Sell Out’."

    Has ‘Little Billy’ ever been commercially released on a live Who album? I’m having a senior moment...

    It looks like less music on the vinyl?

    Although 2CD? I've had this on boot for years and it's always been on 1. Unless they're actually releasing the entire thing...!!!

  18. Seems odd that disc 2 is just "My Generation".

    Finally! But weren't Substitue and Pictures of Lily played as well? I remember reading as so, on some of the bootlegs from it

    This has always been one of my favourite Who boots so I'll be looking forward to it without the edits and if the sound quality is a step or two up.
  21. Can't tell without the track times. This could be great.

    Same here - one of my all time favorite boots. Love it. Hope they keep in Pete's between song banter and exchanges with Keith. Priceless stuff.
