The Who Master Tapes

The Who At Woodstock - August 17, 1969 - Rough Board Mix (Stereo)

This is a the complete performance of The Who at Woodstock on August 17, 1969.

What's fascinating about this tape is that it sounds so much better than the recently released (August, 2019) official CD
(which was released as part of a 38 CD box set).

While Who fans were anticipating an official release for umpteen years, inexplicably it was mixed so poorly that it's virtually unlistenable. In addition to distortion (which may damage your speakers at normal or high volume), John Entwistle's bass sounds as though his strings are broken and flapping around. Additionally, the opening guitar of "I Can't Explain" is muted and "Fiddle About" has a volume jump close to 2 db.

Here is a side by side comparison of "I Can't Explain" (WAV File Audio):

The Who At The Concert For The People Of Kampuchea - December 28, 1979

This is a (4) four track tape comprised of the tracks released for the 1980 LP: Baba O'Riley, Sister Disco, Behind Blue Eyes, See Me, Feel Me.

The Who - Who's Missing / Two's Missing Compilation Masters - 1985

This is a (4) four reel set comprised of a larger selection of rarities which was slimmed down to Who's Missing (1985) and Two's Missing (1987).

After going through all of the tracks, it appears that this may have been an attempt to create an expanded Odds & Sods Box Set (note the (4) four tracks from the same included below) and these (4) four reels do not appear complete (i.e. missing tracks like "Waspman", "My Wife" (Live), "Bargain" (Live), "When I Was A Boy", etc.) - Hopefully those will turn up...

Also please note that both versions of "Circles" and "Time Is Passing" appear to be the same and both are mono.
