This show took place the day following the tragic concert in Cincinnati; as noted in the prior torrent, it was unclear until near showtime whether this show would be canceled. The show went on as planned, and The Who put on a blistering, emotional performance. Roger opened the concert by making reference to the tragedy of the previous night, and dedicated the show to the "lost" audience members. The energy of this performance is evident even in the opening numbers ("Substitute" and "Can't Explain") that are typically warm-ups for the band -- this would clearly be a special night.

The performance is great throughout, with a powerful and improvisational encore. Recording quality is outstanding -- there are some minor glitches in the opening track and some close-mic audience interference (at one point you can hear "J" asking his companion to hold the microphone) but things settle down and there is very little crowd interference to take one's attention away from the music. Very enjoyable recording, and light-years better than most audience masters from the 1970s.
