The Who - Live At The Fillmore East 1968 album download
On April 20 Universal Music are releasing a 3-LP, 2-CD set of The Who’s stunning 1968 live performance at Bill Graham’s Fillmore East theatre in New York. The Who were in New York and nearing the end of a gruelling tour on April 4, 1968, the day that Dr Martin Luther King was assassinated. America was already a country divided; Anti-Vietnam demonstrations, civil rights disturbances and militant student activism. With this turmoil as a backdrop on Friday and Saturday, April 5 and 6, 1968 The Who performed two incendiary live sets at Bill Graham’s legendary Fillmore East on the lower East Side. This iconic image was later used as the album cover and poster for The Who’s classic film The Kids Are Alright. Both nights were recorded by Who manager Kit Lambert with the intention of releasing the results as The Who’s fourth album after The Who Sell Out and before Tommy.
The Who’s manager Kit Lambert had recorded both the 5th and 6th of April shows of ’68 with a view to issuing as The Who’s fourth album after Sell Out. That never happened, but 50 years later sound engineer Bob Pridden (who was there in 1968) has restored and mixed songs from the 6 April show for this new archival release. The setlist features extended versions of My Generation (33 minutes!), A Quick On. Shakin’ All Over and many other Who classics. The Who Live at Fillmore East 1968 will be released on 20 April 2018

The Who performed at the Fillmore East on April 5th and April 6th of 1968, marking the first English rock act to headline the newly christened venue, formerly the Village Theatre. They were originally scheduled to play two sets each night, but due to concerns about unrest following Martin Luther King J. s assassination in Memphis on April 4th, the Who combined two sets into one. Manager Kit Lambert recorded the shows, hoping to release them as a live album. The plan was abandoned when Lambert discovered that his equipment had failed to capture the whole first night.
Live at the Fillmore East 1968, which documents the last show of a two-night stand at the New York venue, arrives on April 20. The two-disc, three-LP set, whose track listing is below, focuses largely on material from their two previous records, The Who Sell Out and A Quick On. The band's manager, Kit Lambert, had recorded the shows in the hopes of putting out a live album as a stopgap while the band worked on Tommy. Instead, they put their new single, "Magic Bus," with some older tracks and delivered Magic Bus: The Who on Tour. The Who, 'Live at the Fillmore East 1968' Track Listing. LP 1 1.

Some boots from Fillmore East, April 1968 carry the wrong date. This particular boot is from the 6th April. According to the Concert File book (by Joe McMichael and Irish Jack Lyons) My Way was played on 6th April but not on 5th April. There are also other references in the Concert File book that make the date for this show accurate.
