Who, The - The Fall 1969 Soundboard Tapes (5CD)

The Who
The Fall 1969 Soundboard Tapes
Complete Volumes 1-5
(Prof Stoned 2016)

Soundboard Recordings
Encoded: 320 Kbps MP3
Full Artwork & Booklet are Included

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.

The Fall 1969 Soundboard Tapes Vol. 1-5? collects every single circulating recording from this tour 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. -Original
