Fire Power FP-027
Venue: Deutschland Halle, Berlin, West Germany, Wednesday, August 30, 1972
Comments: This is a revision of the original review. I've left the original reviewer's
comments intact and have added mine below.
The cover states soundboard, but this is an audience (stereo) recording. The sound
quality, however, is quite a bit better than Rome Palasport (CD) (Fire Power FP-
029). The sound quality is similar to Flying To New York To Go To Court (CD)
(Fire Power FP 016A, 016B). Though The Who Concert File book makes no men-
tion of Long Live Rock having been played at this show, it does appear on this CD.
As there are no notable sound differences compared to the previous tracks on the
CD, I"m presuming it was indeed played. The CD comes packaged quite nicely in a
glossy gatefold cover. CD's and LP's from the 1972 tour are somewhat rare and this
one is could possibly be worth the money.
The sound quality isn't all that great at all and I don't see a significant difference be-
tween this recording and that of Rome Palasport (CD) (Fire Power FP-029). There
are several sound and tone fluctuations which tested my listening patience. Long
Live Rock is indeed present on this CD and credited at 1 minute and 27 seconds
but drops out at 1 minute and 12 seconds.
