#79 THE WHO - Fillmore East 1968 (Flac)

Fillmore East
New York

6th April 1968

This recording is from the second night of the Who's debut* at The Fillmore East in New York city. Located in the old Village Theatre in the East Village, the Fillmore had only been open for business less than a month, when Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend, John Entwhistle and Keith Moon took to the stage for this explosive performance.

It was recorded for a possible official live album: The Who Live At The Fillmore East, but like many intended live albums (Traffic for example) never saw the light of day. You can sample part of the live performance on this high quality bootleg.  (* The Who played at the venue four months earlier when it was known as the Vilage Theatre)

Some boots from Fillmore East, April 1968 carry the wrong date.  This particular boot is from the 6th April.  According to the Concert File book (by Joe McMichael and Irish Jack Lyons) My Way was played on 6th April but not on 5th April.  There are also other references in the Concert File book that make the date for this show accurate.

  1. There ain't no cure for the summertime blues, but this'll do.

    And as for thebasement67, what Ralph would say to Alice at the end of just about every episode of the 1950's US TV show, The Honeymooners.
