Hey everyone,

I've recently gained a lot of interest in The Who and I was wondering if there are any websites like QueenZone where I could download audience recordings and the such?

Many thanks,

=Chin

I'm with you Chin! I started listening to The Who in July and I love it. Tommy and The Who By Numbers are my favourite albums so far. I can see Quadrophenia is very highly regarded but after 2 hearings I don't get it so far :D

And I love Roger's new solo album. Every song on it. My favourite member of this great band.

Try sites like Dime A Dozen. There used to be tons of Who stuff on there.

It takes time. A very worthy investment.

The Rock is one of the best things they ever did. Probably Townshend's crowning achievement - and it's an instrumental.



Artists must pass on, but sometimes a mix of passion, good fortune, diligence, expertise, and meticulous labor can capture and restore some of the beauty they left behind.

I'll try a few more times, that's for sure!

Love the Who.

I got into them when i actually got some spending Cash in High school. It was around the time of the first wave MCA remasters with tons of bonus content (unlike Queen).

Tommy is incredible
Quadrophenia was exhilarating and well, speaks to a soul about that time. (Seeing Townsend perform DROWNED just about changed my life ;)

I really loved the expanded ODDS & SODS
as well as A QUICK ONE which has grown on me to become one of my favorites
I may be in the minority but i also love FACE DANCES but do not spin WHO ARE YOU for anything much but the John Entwhistle songs (which are tremendous)


That said. .. I'm so out of the loop i just search YouTube.

I've wanted to hear that rumoured version of EMINENCE FRONT with Roger on vocals

Me too. Criminally underrated album.

It seemed The Who had managed to reinvent themselves for the 1980s, but as we all know now, they soon ran out of steam.

Endless Wire (released in 2006 I believe) was a pretty good album IMO.

(as long as you skip "In The Ether"...)

In my opinion Endless Wire is even better than pretty good.

And I'm not too fond of 'In The Ether' either.

A few weeks ago I was wondering what general opinion about Endless Wire is, is it common to like it, and of course I was searching on Queenzone! It looks like the album is loved by Queen fans:

There's masses out there.

Start with the Autumn '69 Acetates collection - a veritable tour-de-force (5 discs) of high octane playing that features the band at the beginning of their absolute peak. Also notable for the Summertime Blues (longest recorded live version at 5 mins) and Shakin' All Over stanza from Ottawa - you'll not find better performed live rock and roll anywhere.


There are plenty of incredible quality recordings from throughout the band's career out there - file-sharing sites are the best sources.

The only live boot I have from them is the Campuchea 79 recording. I originally downloaded it only because Queen played on the same "festival", and never planned to actually listen to it, but now I listen to it at least once a week :-) They were a great live band, pity I have found it out only now.

Thanks for this!

I can see it was also filmed. Can I find a full video somewhere or only parts of it are available?

I should search before asking. The entire set can be found easily.
