Year & Country Issued/Label: 1975 - Unknown - Unknown

Comments: Bad... I had this one and "Gather Your Wits" (Dallas '69) and couldn't decide which one was worse, so I got rid of both of them. Somehow, this one seemed to make its way back! Unless you like the cover, don't even bother. There's much better stuff out there.

Comments: Very good, mono soundboard (no stereo soundboards from Woodstock have been released to date). The speed is about 2% too fast, but the sound is very clean.

Comments: Unfortunately, this CD suffers the high frequencies cutting in and out. Apparently, whoever created this CD had a bad tape deck. "Starring The Who" (CD) or "The Violent Side" are better.

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1995 - Japan - CF

Comments: I found this to be the best sounding of the Woodstock '69 boots. My only complaint is that they didn't fit all of the Woodstock performance on one CD. The Young Vic material actually sounds better on other boots.

Date/Location/Venue: 09/29/69 - Amsterdam, NL - Concertgebouw

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1990 - Belgium - Unknown

Comments: Great cover! Good soundboard recording, but the CD versions sound better. I'm not a big fan of this particular concert, as all the copies I've heard to date seem to suffer from the same bad mix - whereas Pete's guitar is very high in the mix and Keith's drums are relatively low, giving you the impression of a "watered down" performance (vs. just a bad mix).

Year & Country Issued/Label: 1995 - Unknown - Hiwatt

Comments: An interesting alternative to "Live At Leeds" in terms of time period and feel. Most of the sound quality on this boot is excellent, with an occasional dropout, thin sounding track, or downright "wobbly" ("A Quick One While He's Away). However, on balance, this is one of the better ones to have.

Comments: Seems to be a dub copy of "Pure Rock Theatre" (above - see those comments for more details). I find this "dub" to be a little brighter in sound, giving the sound quality edge to "Pure Rock Theatre" (if you had to make a choice). Great cover!
