  • TALES FROM THE WHO Venue: The Spectrum, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, Tuesday, December 4, 1973 who1973-12-04.shnf Philadelphia, PA - Spectrum (tales from the who) [SS 200021] Source: Soundboard or possibly audience Comments: What a unique package - right from the first glance at the cover, one cannot help but to be drawn to this CD. The cover bears a strong, if not identical, resemblance to the well-known legitimate series of ORIGINAL MASTER DISC recordings on LP. So, what is so unique about THIS CD when we already have at least 15 different packagings of the same show, you might ask? Although this CD contains no new songs from this show, there are some unique features which make this a worth while acquisition.First off, the disc comes in a very nice laminate single sleeve cover that really looks like quality. The back cover is an (alleged - though probably authentic) shot of the back of the reel-to-reel tape box used by DIR Broadcasting Corp. The story behind the content: DIR Broadcasting Corp./ The King Biscuit Flower Hour present a tribute to The Who. The interviews contained on this disc are "snippets" by Pete, Keith, and Roger (no JAE comments) about how the band met, the dynamics etc. The interviews appear to be in mono / Hi-Fi. but crystal clear. The interviews and broadcast of the 1973 Spectrum Quadrophenia show MAY be either from a 1978 or September 1979 FM radio KBFH broadcast. In comparison with / to all other versions of this 1973 Quadrophenia show, with perhaps the exception of Philadelphia Freedom - Quadrophenia Tour 1973 (CD-R) (no lable information), this is probably THE best-sounding version to own. Recorded in "quadrophonic and stereophonic sound", this is more clear and crisp than any of the others. There appear to be comments during the show by Pete "If you don't come together shortly, you're going to be our straight man again, Pridden" referring to soundman Bobby Pridden (Pete's favorite "scapegoat") and the unnerving difficulties with out-of-sync tapes prior to Dr.Jimmy. The only MINOR thing to complain about is that some of the interviewers or band members comments are played slightly over in to the stage announcements. However, I think most folks appreciate the "authenticity" with which this CD takes a fresh look at a so often bootlegged show. Two thumbs up on this one mates. However, don't just take my word for it, judge for yourself. 01...Pete Townshend Interview 02...Keith Moon Interview 03...I Can't Explain 04...Summertime Blues 05...My Generation 06...I Am The Sea 07...Real Me (sic The Real Me) 08...I'm One 09...Sea And Sand 10...Drowned 11...Bell Boy 12...Roger Daltrey Interview 13...Dr. Jimmy 14...Won't Get Fooled Again 15...Pinball Wizard 16...See Me, Feel Me
