    Comments: What a unique package - right from the first glance at the cover, one can-
    not help but to be drawn to this CD. The cover bears a strong, if not identical, resem-
    blance to the well-known legitimate series of ORIGINAL MASTER DISC recordings on
    LP. So, what is so unique about THIS CD when we already have at least 15 different
    packagings of the same show, you might ask? Although this CD contains no new
    songs from this show, there are some unique features which make this a worth while
    acquisition.First off, the disc comes in a very nice laminate single sleeve cover that
    really looks like quality. The back cover is an (alleged - though probably authentic)
    shot of the back of the reel-to-reel tape box used by DIR Broadcasting Corp. The
    story behind the content: DIR Broadcasting Corp./ The King Biscuit Flower Hour pre-
    sent a tribute to The Who
    . The interviews contained on this disc are "snippets" by
    Pete, Keith, and Roger (no JAE comments) about how the band met, the dynamics
    etc. The interviews appear to be in mono / Hi-Fi. but crystal clear. The interviews and
    broadcast of the 1973 Spectrum Quadrophenia show MAY be either from a 1978 or
    September 1979 FM radio KBFH broadcast
    . In comparison with / to all other ver-
    sions of this 1973 Quadrophenia show, this is probably THE best-sounding version
    to have. Recorded in "quadrophonic and stereophonic sound", this is more clear and
    crisp than any of the others. There appear to be comments during the show by Pete
    "If you don't come together shortly, you're going to be our straight man again,
    " referring to soundman Bobby Pridden (Pete's favorite "scapegoat") and the
    unnerving difficulties with out-of-sync tapes prior to Dr. Jimmy. The only MINOR
    thing to complain about is that some of the interviewers or band members comments
    are played slightly over in to the stage announcements. However, I think most folks
    appreciate the "authenticity" with which this CD takes a fresh look at a so often
    bootlegged show. Two thumbs up on this one mates. However, don't just take my
    word for it, judge for yourself.
