Notes:
Liberated by hntgzr. Many thanks to whitecity for supplying the original Silver CD to rip and share! Kudos also to ooru, a definitive source of 'oo knowledge during times of uncertainty.

This is quite possibly a mixture of two AM Radio recordings. It has the same quality and feel as many other 60's AM radio shows. The recording is mono. It was the first of many early 1970's Opera House concerts showcasing Tommy.

No amendments were made to the audio files after the rip. Some tape anomalies and cuts are present.

Tattoo contains a tape anomaly at 1m 12s. Young Man Blues contains a dropout at 7m 04s during Pete's banter about A Quick One and again at 8m 32s. The dropouts are for milliseconds. There is a noticable dip in sound quality during Overture at 55s - this is where the second tape source possibly starts. Go To The Mirror has a slight cut at the end (no music is lost, just crowd noise). The first few seconds of My Generation suffers from tape flutter.

According to Anyway Anyhow Anywhere, the show from the 17th was broadcast on Europa 1. The actual date of this particular boot may well be from the 17th, however, the Concert File book lists Pete's stage banter as being from the 16th.
