Unfortunately, TheWho.com HAVE already offered this on their site as an enticement to subscribe.
It was called "View From a Backstage Pass".

Very true. I'd expect a deluge of releases to cash in on the Superbowl show.
But what we've had is:
- a T Shirt based a 30-year album cover (granted: nice shirt though)
- another new uninspired compilation with the same tired song selection
- a live compilation made up of other existing live releases which is only available to buy in a poor-quality audio format from a single reseller, which requires hateful software to be installed on my PC, rant, rant.
I can see WHY The Who choose to release it this way (ie: iTunes only):
- quick release
- no overheads
- no marketing required
- no thought involved.
And: we must remember that there isn't a bottomless pit of unreleased Who material.
As much as we'd all like to wish there was.

That's probably the best way to do it.
Although - some of these songs are going to be pretty long. Probably need 2 CDs.

I DO have thousands of MP3s on my PC, and a decent MP3 player with a thousand songs.
BUT: I much prefer proper CD releases. Something tangible. Better audio quality, etc.
I consider myself the CD-generation. (I'm 40 next year, as someone gleefully reminded me today.)
Am I starting to sound like the older generation, reminiscing over vinyl?
