Bootlegs

I started collecting Who bootlegs when they first appeared in the early 1970s. I have decided to slowly start selling off this part of my collection. The albums have been played a few times on a Technics SL-1500 turntable with a Shure V15 Type IV cartridge. They have been stored since purchase in plastic bags so the covers don't have any scuffing or ring wear. It is very interesting to see how much wear the plastic covers have absorbed in the 30+ years they have been on there.

CDs are original and are Mint- or better.


Six Rare "What's It All About" Interview 45's - NO LONGER AVAILABLE, SALE PENDING


This is a set of six different 7" 45-rpm promotional interview singles. These were produced by TRAV between 1974 and 1980 for the United Presbyterian Church. One side contains interviews by Bill Huie with The Who or are Who related and the other side contains various artists. As far as I know these interviews were not released elsewhere. These are not bootlegs.

I bought these in the early 1980s after scouring record shops in New York City. Even then they were very hard to find and expensive. If you do a search on eBay you will find very few of these.

Condition is VG or better and they haven't been played since I bought them. They were stored vertically in boxes in paper sleeves with a protective poly liners.

Lifehouse Live - At the Young Vic, London - April 1971 - KKR 42

Click on the images below for larger scans.

This is a soundboard recording from The Young Vic Theatre, Waterloo, South London, UK,  Monday, April 26, 1971. All original 1993 German bootleg, pressed disc (not CD-R).

Baba O'Riley's Bootleg Page (thewho.net/bootlegs) states:

"Wow!  Incredible to hear The Who playing this at-the-time still unreleased material intended for the Lifehouse project in front of a "trial" audience. PT comments "some of them still feel a bit lame", and engages in a verbal joust with an audience member about how many "fucks" he has had. One of the last Who Lifehouse shows at the Young Vic."

Shakin' All Over - Live at the Fillmore East - F.E. '69

Click on the images below for larger scans.

Front cover - gatefold opened. Inside front cover - gatefold opened. Back cover.  

This is a soundboard recording from the Fillmore East on April 6, 1968. All original bootleg, pressed disc (not CD-R).

White Fang (thewho.info), owner of the world's largest Who collection, rates this A+ and says "If you're looking for the Fillmore East boot - this is it. I might argue that "Who Are These Masked Men?" is ever-so-slightly better, but that disc is nearly impossible to find."

Baba O'Riley's Bootleg Page (thewho.net/bootlegs) states "Judging from The Who Concert file book, this is almost the entire show. The only thing that appears to be missing is Crying Town, (if it was performed) the second song from A Quick One. This also appears to be the most complete version of all Fillmore East shows."

Closer to Queen Mary/The Genius of Pete Townshend - Trade Mark of Quality TMOQ 7504

Click on the images below for larger scans.

This is one of the first bootlegs I purchased (directly from the bootlegger) and is on the very desirable Trademark of Quality Label. It is a double album with TMOQ labels pressed on beautiful green/black colored vinyl.

The front has the silver metallic "GENUINE TRADEMARK OF QUALITY DISC" pig logo label and has the titles rubber stamped in purple ink.

The back printed insert is on a loose blue piece of 8x11 paper. Because it was loose, at the time of purchase I glued it to the cover which has left some staining.

Cover is VG+ (because of the staining), discs are mint-.

Closer to Queen Mary is a live recording from the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, CA December 10, 1971.
