I'm terrible for remembering the venues / dates for particular CDs.
But a number of these certainly sound familiar.

Many of these I already have on the excellent View From A Backstage Pass.
Largo, Swansea, Hull, San Francisco and Charlton are all on VfaBP and this iTunes compilation (although I haven't done a comparison of the actual songs on both.)

But as well as this:

*       Hull - 1970 - got on bootleg
*       Swansea - 1976 - got on bootleg
*       Charlton - 1974 - got on bootleg
*       Leeds - 1970 - got on official release, natch.
*       BBC - got this on the official BBC release (presumably this same version of My Generation)
*       LA - 1989 - Is this the same concert as the Join Together CD?
*       Royal Albert Hall - 2002 - This is recorded 2 years after the RAH CD release - so I don't have this.

The 2009 Brisbane and 2007 New York songs are possibly the most interesting for me.
Now that I think about it, I don't have ANY Live Who CDs recorded in the last few years.
Possibly the Live in Leon bonus CD (which came with Endless Wire) is my most recent recording.

That said, I would not hesitate in buying an official CD release of this in an instant.
