How do I use your page?
My page is strictly a catalog. You can look up titles and get information about each title
listed. This is particularly helpful if you have one of these titles and aren’t certain what you
have, if you’ve seen a particular title on an e-commerce site, auction site, local music
shop or in a friend’s collection and would like to have more information about that title, or,
if you just want more information about The Who’s live recordings since their reputation for
delivering a stellar live performance is still unequaled.
Where can I find these CDs / LPs?
Most of the selling and trading is done online via web sites and news groups.. Check the
Links page for some places to start your search. Ebay has also been a good place to find
some of these as well including some very hard to find vinyl. Some music magazines also
contain ads by individuals looking to sell / trade. Try some of the many newsgroups (the
ODDS & SODS NG is a good place to get some real solid info.
Can you burn a CD-R or dub a tape for me?
On occasion I may - if I can find the time. People hit me up for a lot of stuff but I’ve also
been fortunate to have received a lot of material and so I do try to give back.
Do you do any trades?
My answer here is the same as for burning CD-R’s.
Can I take any of the graphics / pictures from your site?
No, but I can’t stop you, but you can bet I’ll do my best to make it a real headache.
Will you send me pictures of covers, inserts or of a CD itself?
Are you kidding me?! Get real! Don’t even think about e-mailing me about that. You will
NOT receive a reply from me - EVER.
Why don’t you have the CD-R page anymore?
CD / LP and Tape collecting can be serious business requiring a lot of time and effort in
order to procure a low generation tape and the cost of acquiring CDs or LPs can be pro-
hibitive. So, with that in mind, I’ve decided to create a new page entitled ROIO (Record-
ings of Indeterminate Origin). This page will be created and maintained by my friend Matt
and will hopefully adequately address the tape collectors and CD-R markets. Good luck
Matt, you’re going to need it.
Why don’t you have a Video page anymore?
I’ve started uploading video clips again. For the most part, they’re incorporated into the
individual CD / LP listing for a particular show but I’ll also place them in the Videos page.
What is your favorite Who Bootleg?
There are way too many to list here but of particular note are the CDs Live At Leeds Com-
plete, the double set Merry Christmas Mr. Who, Toronto 1975, Amazing Journey (Amster-
dam Concertgebouw, 1969), Fillmore East, Demos for Quadrophenia and most of the
“demos” CDs and LPs in general (great stuff) as well as Tales From The Who and Charl-
ton Uncut. On LP, perhaps American Tour 1979, Swansea 1976. There are just too
many to list. Suffice it to say I’m a huge fan of the 1968 through 1978 period and (the
Keith Moon era, in general. Mind you, there are other incredible bootlegs from 1979 to the
current time but I’ve always been into the harder stuff. Merry Christmas Mr. Who (Edmon-
ton Sundown Theater, 1973) is a great performance despite the mediocre sound quality. If
you’re into PT’s lead guitar jams, this is a stellar Quadrophenia show. There are probably
another 100 shows I could probably list but....
