Lineage Tracks 1-4* & 10-15*: 

Unknown Aiwa stereo mic > Sony DC6 > Maxell XLII 90 

Sony TC-WE465 > Sony DTC-ZE700 > Wavelab (tracking and tweaking) > you 
*speed correction to match SBD source's timing 

Lineage Tracks 5-9^: 


^Original SBD source had tracking issues on Track 9 (probably from bad rip by seeder I got this from) so I replaced three problem sections using chunks of AUD track 9 after amplitude match to AUD was done on SBD Track 9. This same amplitude adjustment was made on remaining SBD tracks so that the integration of the two sources would be seamless. No clipping occurred.

Comments: This time in Denmark and I had a great time there. But I'm even today a little bitter because I hade a very good ticket in front of the stage but because of brain damage (alcohol) and lack of information I stood a way back in the arena (mixer table). The recording is 3 pieces. First 20 minutes was recording to low (adjusted in the release)… second part (16 min) is from HP's recording in Landgraaf (fixed to fit the volume) two days before because of flickering fingers that put the internal mikes on. From “Wish you were here” it went well and the second disk I’m pleased with.

No surprises in the setlist. Now I'm Here (Reprise) has worse sound than the rest of the concert, so I think it comes from another source. It has almost the whole recording a very stable sound with no major problems. A funny moment during Tutti Frutti when Roger is a bit too late on the drums to start the heavier part of the song. This is the complete concert.

Recorded Live In Rainbow Theater, London, UK, December 21th, 1980

While all that has surfaced from the professional recording is the short 30 minutes found on the Live At The Rainbow video, thankfully someone smuggled in a recorder to document the event and is the source for this new release. For an audience source it is very good, near excellent and captures the ambience perfectly, it has an in your face sound yet focuses on the middle and upper frequencies and is a bit thin sounding, there is some upper end distortion as a result. The balance is perfect with all instruments and vocals being well defined and the audience noise near the taper is just enough to capture the vibe without becoming intrusive. This recording has been released before as …Before The Exile (Robespierre Recxords RBCD 003) that is incomplete, missing Transylvania and Strange World and adds a Women In Uniform from Top Of The Pops ands an incredible, yet un-dated, version of Montrose’ I’ve Got The Fire.

Coming off the successes of Mirage and Snow Goose, 1976 saw Camel release another masterful work called Moonmadness. Each member of the band contributed compositions to the album which reached #15 in the music charts. Camel had an extensive tour of the United Kingdom in March and April of 1976 to coincide with the release of this new album. The addition of Mel Collins on Sax and Flute had changed the Camel sound. His inclusion in the band at the beginning of this tour had given Camel more of a jazz feel. This was also the first time that Camel had used film as a visual component of their shows. As Andy Latimer told Melody Maker, "This is the first time we've used films, and I don't want us to get into it too much. ...We're not a very bopping band, so it's nice for the audience to have something to watch". A short break followed the 17 concert, U.K. tour after which Camel came to California for a performance in San Francisco at the Boardinghouse on June 26th. This was their first US performance in over a year and their last until February of 1979 when they again returned to play in California.  Six of the seven new Moonmadness album songs were played that night. The concert begins with two of the new entries. The audience is then told that they are about to get, "a little slice of the Snow Goose". The first three songs of that all instrumental album are then played with received with great enthusiasm. The band returns to Moonmadness material playing Air Born and Chord Change. They then proceed to The White Rider from Mirage, Lunar Sea from the new album, two more from Snow Goose and then a final selection from Moonmadness.

note by jameskg: 
This is as close as you'll ever get the high speed reel master source. AJD owns the original PCM transfer from those reels and the reels have since been destroyed by fire. This originally came from Bill Graham's vault. The original PCM is the now definitive source, but was not widely circulating until now. This is the most complete tape circulated in this quality to date. 

PCM was used before DAT machines were invented and were the first means of digital recording. An A/D signal converter was used to to encode analog audio from tape reels to (Sony recommended) BETAMAX tapes in a standard BETA machine. A PCM encoder, coupled to a VCR, enables you to record digital audio as if it was an ordinary video signal. The device also extracts the digital audio message from the video signal, the other way round, for playback. 

This PCM was likely made with either the PCM-1 (1977) or the PCM-F1 (1981). 
The first PCM encoder (SONY PCM-1) can be seen here: CLICK 
This PCM was likely made with either the PCM-1 (1977) or the PCM-F1 (1981) , which can be seen here: CLICK 

What you are receiving is a direct digital transfer done by the owner of the PCM recording, AJD, a professional audio guru. The PCM machine used for the transfer is a SONY PCM-601ESD, originally sold in 1984-1985. The PCM-601ESD had the important advantages of S/PDIF digital I/O and adjustable tracking and VCR head-matching circuits and was the best digital storage technology available at the time. 

These units are pretty hard to come by these days. 

I took his transfer and mastered it for release, then encoded to FLAC8. Notice it it not a "remaster" since was never actually mastered, just transferred from old media to new as the technology progressed. 

For those who would ask: 
This is better quality than "Blues Anytime" from EVSD. The tape is more complete and the audio quality is at least a generation cleaner, if not two. The stereo separation is MUCH better on this transfer than whatever EVSD used. The first few notes on BIGLY have obviously been spliced in by EVSD from a distorted source (probably not even the same date) and do not exist on the master PCM. 

This is more complete and better quality than the original "Dancing Avocado". When I put that one out, the source I was given had been through more DAT and CDR gens.

Art by Small Fish, Release date: 2005.07.24, "Sunday Night Special" 

This show had some PA problems in a few places (Jones' bass rig, mainly) and the PA had a slight buzz all night (only noticeable between songs or very quiet passages). But hey, that's how it went down that night, so it's just like being there - except - Plant's mic seems distant - which adds credibility to the 2 neumanns on stage thing. They'd have picked up the drums and amps and Roberts voice would have been on the house PA, which was probably just forward of the mics (or in line). I kind of like it this way - as I can really hear the band!

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

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

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

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.


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: 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.

Here's a little gem from my archives that's been kicking around on my PCs since 2001. This is a complete recording of a partial FM broadcast of the BBC recording of R.E.M. at Rock City in Nottingham in 1984. To the best of my knowledge none of this has been officially released. While I didn't use fancy equipment to make it, the recording is excellent. I recorded straight to my HD, split the tracks with CD Wave Editor, and made Shorten files to post to Usenet. This is the original file set, no CD-R in the lineage. It's only 25 minutes, but it's good. Sample below.

This is the same show as "Retro Rock" however this has the songs in the right order and no fake audience pumped in. You can tell from the between song banter. It's a true killer - one of my early DIME finds. This is from the cdr I burned from my Dime download - the files were no longer on my computer. Wildly esoteric setlist here and the performance is dyn-o-mite. You can hear a bit of lp noise between tracks like before Turn The page - it is pretty much of a non-issue though.
