The Who - Who's For Tennis? 1968 (soniclovenoize reconstruction 1CD piratebay 11272538) "This is my reconstruction of the proposed and promptly withdrawn 1968 album Who's For Tennis? by The Who. Originally intend as a proper studio album (or live album, as some maintain) that would have been released in-between The Who Sell Out and Tommy, the idea for the album was scrapped and the recorded material instead came out as either single releases or remained in the vaults... (I)n an attempt to keep up with their British rock contemporaries such as The Rolling Stones, The Beatles and The Kinks who could release an entire album of material every year, the question was proposed: what album would The Who release in 1968 to fill the stopgap until Townshend's rock opera, which at best would be released in early 1969?

"Thus The Who's manager and producer Kit Lambert proposed an album entitled Who's For Tennis? to be released that July of 1968, meant to capitalize on the upcoming Wimbledon Championships.  The album would have included all new recordings as well as any number of the relevant outtakes from the previous year's Sell Out sessions, which had produced a wealth of non-LP material... With twelve new studio recordings in the can, the absurd idea of Who's For Tennis? was eventually withdrawn as the summer drew upon The Who.  Instead of an entire album, just three of the tracks trickled out as single-releases..."

The Who - Autumn 1969 Acetates [no label 1CD longliverock 487] "This cd collects all the soundboard tracks that have surfaced from the October/November 1969 tour of the U.S that have not been identified by venue or date. Some tracks have been "released" before on cds such as "Who is tommy" and "Eternal mods", but mis-labeled. These, on this CD here, were recorded straight to cassette from the original reference acetates made by Damon Lyon Shaw at IBC studios in January 1970. You will hear scratches, clicks, skips and even run off grooves! Listen how the tape is manually stopped whilst the acetate is still being cut! The raw, unmixed sound is also loud and powerful."

The Who - "Gutter Punks At A Warehouse" : Remastered [no label 1CD Torrent: 74701] live at the Warehouse in New Orleans, Louisiana Nov 29, 1971. "Virtually every track had very different frequency responses. Therefore, each track has to be mastered using different values. This goes for each channel on each track as well. A fairly large amount of Eq'ing has been done here... In many cases, depending on the channel balance and amp level, amplification and channel mixing has been used to get a more well rounded out and clearer sound where possible. I've also done some cutting, pasting and fading in and out in sections where necessary. No form of noise reduction has been used on this recording." - theface07 VG+ SBD stereo.

"In terms of sound quality, this one is surprisingly good for an audience recording in the early 1970s. The vocals are very clear and prominent and the overall mix is good; dynamics are not that great, but given the technology available at the time this is a surprisingly vibrant recording. I only briefly spot-checked the recording, but didn't hear any significant audience interference. For the era, this is really an outstanding recording." - ademotte. VG AUD stereo. TT: 82:03m.
