Title/Format/Rating/Source: Dance To Keep From Crying - LP - B - Audience

Date/Location/Venue: 1964 - London, UK - Marquee Club

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1983 - Denmark - Marquee

Comments: To my knowledge, this was the first release of a High Numbers concert. The source is a fairly decent audience recording. The same concert has been subsequently booted.

Track Listing: Dance (To Keep From Crying), Young Man Blues, Long Tall Shorty, Pretty Thing, Here, Instrumental #1 (You Really Got Me), Instrumental #2 (Green Onions), Blues Medley (Smokestack Lightning/Money)

Title/Format/Rating/Source: The High Numbers Live 1964 - CD - B - Audience (with studio tracks)

Date/Location/Venue: 1964 - London, UK - Marquee Club (possibly Railway Club 10/20/64)

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2005 - Japan - Yellow Dog

Comments: Another CD version of the High Numbers Marquee Club concert, with previously unreleased High Numbers studio tracks Decent sound quality for the High Numbers' live tracks, although the tape source has the highs cutting in and out and it sounds like some noise reduction was used. "Here "Tis" is off-speed.

The studio tracks are from a high quality soundboard source (with some noise reduction) and completely instrumental. While certainly an interesting find and certainly noteworthy from a historical point of view, without Roger on vocals (he does play harmonica on some of the tracks), I found the recordings somewhat boring (sorry!). In the "Instrumental Jam", you can hear elements of "Magic Bus" from "Live At Leeds" and in the last track ("Unknown Instrumental") you can hear elements of "Elephants" (Pete's demo from "Scoop 3")

Track Listing:  Live High Numbers: I Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying, You Really Got Me, Young Man Blues, Green Onions, I Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying,  Instrumental, Long Tall Shorty, I Gotta Dance To Keep From Crying, Pretty Thing, Smokestack Lightning / Money, Here 'tis

Comments: A CD version of the High Numbers Marquee Club concert, with added High Numbers studio tracks and alternate takes of "A Quick One While He's Away" from The Rolling Stones Rock & Roll Circus. Decent sound quality for the High Numbers' live tracks (considering the rarity of the source). Don't bother for the rest of the tracks.

Track Listing: Studio: I'm The Face, Zoot Suit, Leaving Here, Here 'tis
Live High Numbers: Dance To Keep From Crying, You Really Got Me, Young Man Blues, Green Onions, Improvisation, Long Tall Shorty, Pretty Thing, Smokestack Lightning / Money, Here 'tis

Title/Format/Rating/Source: Who's Zoo - LP - B - Audience

Date/Location/Venue: 08/06/65 - London, UK - Richmond Athletic Grounds & 1965 Shindig TV

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1974 - USA - Trade Mark Of Quality

Comments: This 2 LP set pre-dated any official rarities compilation, by including most of the known "b" sides and "hard to find" tracks - and in very good sound quality. While all the studio tracks are available commercially, and the live tracks available on various CD releases, you can't beat the great cover!

Title/Format/Rating/Source: The Very Best & Rariest Of "Shindig!" - CD - B - Video Tape Dub

Date/Location/Venue: 1965 - UK - Shindig Television Show

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2001 - USA - Hercules

Comments: A various artists compilation of performances from the Shindig TV Show. The Who tracks are kinda neat, and although just a few, this is sort of worth having. The sound is pretty clean.

Track Listing: Who Tracks: Daddy Rolling Stone, I Can't Explain (version #1), My Generation, I Can't Explain (version #2)

Title/Format/Rating/Source: Who Are The High Numbers? - CD - C- Audience

Date/Location/Venue: 06/02/66 - Grona Lund, Stockholm, Sweden - 1964 - Marquee Club, London, UK - 10/25/66 - Club Nalen, Stockholm, Sweden - 03/11/67 Marquee Club, London UK

Year & Country Issued/Label: 2002 - Unknown - Pirate Records/HiWatt

Comments: Great cover! This is an interesting CD due to the rarity of the 2 Swedish concerts and their track lists. Pretty amazing to have a live version of "Barbara Ann" and "A Legal Matter" from 1966! The Marquee Club is a dub from the usual sources. Unfortunately, the sound quality <of the Swedish material> is pretty poor - but listenable. The 06/02/66 show sounds better than the 10/25/66 show, but "Barbara Ann" is cut short and the source tape wobbles a bit. The last track (the 2nd "My Generation") does not exist on this CD, although credited!

Track Listing: 10/25/66: Heatwave, Dancing In The Streets, Barbara Ann, So Sad About Us, Substitute, The Kids Are Alright, I'm A Boy, My Generation
Marquee Club 1964: Dance To Keep From Crying, Young Man Blues, Long Tall Shorty, Pretty Thing, Here 'Tis, You Really Got Me, Green Onions, Spoonful, Smokestack Lightning, Money

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1993 - Italy - Black Panther

Comments: Since the Monterey material has been released officially and all the other material on this disc can be found elsewhere, there isn't much of a point to this CD - other than the pretty cover. The sound quality is actually not as good as some of the sources that it attempts to copy from.

Live 1965 (Common Sources):  Daddy Rolling Stone, I Can't Explain, My Generation

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1998 - USA - Unknown

Comments: The Fillmore East section of this CD is among the best of the Fillmore boots. However, the "bonus tracks from the Beat Club & Marquee Club, while soundboard in source are very "scratchy" sounding, making the rare performances difficult to enjoy.
