True, & this must be considered when evaluating the band's
sound. But it's always seemed to me that the other acts had
a better, clearer, more balanced sound whereas The Who
mix sounded at once muddy & weak.
I have the 4-cd box set that Rhino put out back in the 1800s.
This new 2-disc release will be a nice refresher for me.
> Keith owned that show wow was he a bad ass,,,,,,,
Fuck yeah, he did! He's like a fuckin' dynamo back there!
And all those stick bounces off his drum heads! Man, what
it must've been like to have been there....
And I was thinking.....the *studio* version of "Summertime
Blues" (ODDS & SODS reissue) is sung with a way over-
the-top American accent. In this case, one sounding very
country-like & hillbilly-ish.
Daltrey gives the studio WGFA a strong American twang,
But we can't forget all the times The Who sang with de-
cidedly British accents: "Dogs," Keith on "Bell Boy," Pete
on "Long Love Rock" live in 1982, parts of "A Quick One."
