Notes: This is a complete show and includes a lot of banter between the band members of the audience that was included on the CD. The show sounds like it was a very good one, and the sound quality on this recording seems very good for what it is (you can hear all the instruments and vocals clearly on this one, unlike Rome Pa lasport (CD) (Fire Power FP-029). The recorder seems to change speeds at times on the second disk, but nothing major. PT introduces an 11:36 minute version of Baby Don't You Do It on CD 2 by asking the audience to join in to an incredible jam of this song - best I have heard of this song! There is an "interruption" in See Me, Feel Me, but, oh well! This was the second of three consecutive nights at The Auditorium Theater in Chicago.

Comments: A great mid summer show from the first US 1971 Tour. This is the second of three nights at this venue and The Who turn in a classic performance, playing old and brand new songs with power and energy. My Wife is a great warm up, and the jam is amazing. Bargain is amazing and features truly excellent drumming from Keith. A rare set which has Love Ain't For Keeping in the set and all in all, including the incredible jams on Baby Don't You Do It and Naked Eye leading into Magic Bus, this is a wonderful show.

Thanks to Blake Aaron for the comments and cover to this CD.

85:54 Minutes.
