The Who “Live At Fillmore East 1968” to be released in April

The Who will release an archival live album on April 20th.

While 1969’s ‘Live At Leeds’ will always be the archetypal ‘Oo live release and ‘Live At The Isle of Wight 1970’ captures the band in their full blown pomp, the newly remastered and released ‘Live At Fillmore’ is an historically important record of the band in a live setting.

Not least of all because it documents the live shows for the classic ‘Who Sell Out’ LP, but also the tour represents the last time the band put on full shows without relying on the ‘Tommy’ rock opera as a centre piece, whether in full or in part.

The Fillmore shows on both 5th and 6th April were recorded with plans for a live LP, but subsequently shelved. 2018’s ‘Live At The Fillmore’ issues the April 6th performance in its entirety, culminating with a thirty three minute tour de force ‘My Generation’.

‘Live At The Fillmore’ will be released on double CD and triple vinyl. The full tracklisting for the 2CD set can be seen below. The 3LP set presents disc one across records one and two, with ‘My Generation’ split across both sides of record three.
