Yeah, well, something like that.  ;-)

Some of mine date back to around '81-'82.  And they still play fine!
(Probably because of the minimal use they now receive.)

Yeah, you might wanna seek help.  ;-o  I remember having an old VCR in
which you could overdub new sound onto video tapes.  My friends & I used
to make our own naughty dialogue to Bruce Lee movies.  (Maybe *I* should
seek help!)

All Cake?  ;-/

My Top Five choices:

1. Fillmore East '68 (best CD version entitled SHAKIN' ALL OVER).
2. Amsterdam '69 (best CD version entitled AMAZING JOURNEY).
3. Woodstock '69
4. Philadelphia '73 (the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio broadcast).
5. Swansea '76 

Those five are all excellent-sounding boots (different pressings will vary).
There are a host of boots containing good-sounding material from the '69-
'70 tour, but the ones I listed above are sort of like the "core" live Who
boots one should own, IMO.
