    Recording: Soundboard
    Comments: This is one KILLER CD! This is about the closest song order to the in-
    tended Lifehouse project that I've ever seen. Strictly PT on these tunes. It starts
    off with Pure And Easy with it's haunting chorus of "there once was a note pure
    and easy...
    "and ending with the refrain "there once was a note, LISTEN!...." then
    nicely rolls from one tune in to the next before finally ending the disc with Song Is
    and it's reprise of the Pure And Easy refrain "there once was a note, pure
    and easy playing so free like a breath rippling by
    ". The sound is very good and
    it features the 13 + minute version of Baba O'Riley. This appears to be a copy of the
    vinyl LP The Genius of Peter Townshend and then some. This disc includes Let's
    See Action
    and a few others which none of the above-mentioned titles do in direct
    connection with the Lifehouse project. The folkes at the HIWATT label did a fine job
    on this one. Compare with the CDs listed above.
