Bootleg CD's and Repacks

Is there a good bootleg of San Francisco '71 available?  I bought
the CD from Black Dog and I swear the sound is half an octave too
slow.  You can hear everything, but the quality pales to anything
commercially released.

Personally I think the Young Man Blues on the Kids Are Alright blows
the Isle of Wight away, I guess I'm in the minority on this.
However nothing beats 'Water' from Tanglewood, my definate favorite
on the video.

Im sure there are some Jimi Hendrix fans on this group who have
bought the newly packaged MCA releases.  This should give you an
idea what is in store for the Who.  You're going to get b-sides and
extensive liner notes that document each song.  As someone mentioned
earlier, I don't know how they are going to spread the wealth of
rare Who tracks on previously released albums.  I hope what ever
they do it's COMPLETE and does not cut corners.
