    Pete & Roger - Crowd Control

    Roger Intro's Quadrophenia

    Love Reign O'er Me + Roger's Outro

    Venue: The Capitol Centre, Largo, Maryland, USA, Thursday, December 6, 1973
    Source: Soundboard
    Comments: The buzz has been about for quite a while about the release of this and
    the Spectrum 1973 (CD) (Unknown) CD and finally they're both here. This is an ex-
    cellent and complete soundboard recording of a killer Quadrophenia show. The sound
    is clear and nothing I heard sounded muddled or mucked about with. After the band
    figured out what worked on stage without the frequent backing tape problems, the
    Quadrophenia portion of the show was cut down to these tracks. Roger provides a
    brief story line of Quadrophenia and the meaning of "Mods". In addition, Roger and
    Pete request the crowd stop shoving and to take a few steps back. The Quadrophe-
    nia tracks all shine through in my opinion and the sound is vastly - VASTLY improved
    over any of the Tales From The Who CD's and LP's et al. I've noted there are several
    fade-outs at the end of tracks - primarily during pauses between the music and stage
    announcements and it is somewhat noticeable but not a tragedy. The CD cover is a
    photo from the the 500th anniversary broadcast of the British TV show Top of The
    Pops on October 3, 1973. The Who were invited to debut their new single "5:15" and
    were in terrific form for the taping of this show. Pete smashed the Gretsch "Chet
    Atkins" guitar that Joe Walsh had presented to him in 1970. If you're able to procure
    this and the Spectrum 1973 CD's you'll be in possession of two excellent, EXCELLENT
    sounding - and well-performed, vintage Quadrophenia shows.
