A decent audience recording, but not the complete show. This show was the "Goodbye Summer" charity concert to benefit the Bangladesh Relief Fund. The Who headlined a day long show that featured Cochise, The Grease Band, Lindisfarne, Quintessence, Mott the Hoople, America, Eugene Wallace, Atomic Rooster, and The Faces.

According to "The Who Concert File" the concert was MC'ed by Jeff Dexter, and not Rikki Farr as the artwork incorrectly has listed.

The Who had a nice smash up at the end of Magic Bus, lead by Keith Moon who bashed away at his drumset with a cricket bat that had been loaned to Dexter from the Surrey Cricket Club, and stolen by Keith to use as drumsticks.

The event was recorded on 8-track Dolby Sound using the Pye Mobile unit, but none of the soundboard recording has yet surfaced. If anyone has this, please let us know!
