    Recording: Audience
    Comments: The Dayton portion of this show is of excellent sound and claims to be
    recorded from the original Collectors Item LP. The inside cover reads:

      "Very few excellent quality audience tapes exist of the
      1971 Who's Next tour. The best were Chicago and Dayton.
      Unlike the Chicago tape, only part of the concert ever
      appeared, and that was on a rare LP that has been un-
      available for over a quarter of a century. The tape never
      surfaced in any collectors circles, making the LP a true
      collectors item. Taken from a clean LP, this portion of the
      CD represents an excellent sample of the 1971 concert
      from the obligatory (Pinball Wizard), the obscure (Know
      Myself) and the highlights (the remaining four songs). The
      band has been on record as saying Baby Don't Do It from
      this tour was their single best live song and it's impossible
      to disagree after hearing this version!"

    The second half of CD is an audience recording from Oklahoma City, 1967. This app-
    ears identical to "Cry Blue Murder" with the exception of Pictures of Lily not being
    included here.The inside cover comments: "From their first American tour, we pre-
    sent a tape that, while rough, is as good as any other (if not better) from 1967. What
    makes this a collector's item is the only known preserved live performance of Love
    Hurts, a song in the vein of its predecessor So Sad About Us.  This complete con-
    cert represents an energetic documentation of the tour that broke them in to the
    American scene."
