Venue: Wedgewood Village Amusement Park, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA, Saturday, August 24, 1968

The cover says "Westwood Park, Oklahoma City, 1968." According to the information on the Who Live In Concert webpage, the first 5 tracks could be from March 19, 1968. The other tracks are from another show. Both shows are audience recordings in stereo but not very high quality. Tracks 6-15 are of slightly better quality. Anyway, very impressive shows.

Added note: The Who Concert File lists this recording as being at the Wedgewood Village Amusement Park.

Review by: Maarten Lemmens, maarten_lemmens@hotmail.comOn 29 Oct 2000
Because of the rarity of Who shows from this era, the good performances and the quite good sound quality compared to other early recordings, i think every true Who fan should search for this disc.
The Who Concert File states that track 6-15 were recorded on July 23, 1967 at the Memorial Auditorium in Dallas, Texas.
Review by: Steve Parsons, hendrix07@roadrunner.nf.netOn 05 Feb 2001
This disc contains old audiences recordings of The Who. Such concerts are hard to find and this should be the only reason why you would pick up this disc. For newcommers to The Who's music, this CD would not be a good choice. The sound quality is pretty bad and gets annoying after a while. There are high distortion levels and mistakes made by the bootlegger, however, for Who fans that want live recordings from ever era, this may be the best choice.
Review by: Bill S., django6@lycos.comOn 26 Jun 2001
No, the sound quality is not great (although it's a lot better than, say, The Yardbirds Live in LA, also from 1968), but this CD captures The 1967-68 Who at their
wildest and most powerful. The feedback-drenched Pictures
of Lily-era Who were great on record, and even better
live! Forget the sound, turn up the volume and this will
nail you to the wall. Tracks 1-5 and then the rest of the
album seem to come from two different shows, one supposedly
from late 67, the other from a summer 68 show at an Oklahoma
amusement park. Whatever the source, this is a very
valuable document. I can't imagine any fan of vintage
65-68 Who not LOVING this! who cares about the sound?
Get a digital recording of some recent Who show if you
want crystal clear sound.

This disc contains the best live document of The Who circa 1967 available anywhere (although The Who's set at Monterey 1967 is available officially in great soundboard quality, the performance is pretty weak, as quoted from The Who themselves, given that they were using inadequate amplification equipment). The sound quality is actually a little better than one would expect given the time period but is certainly not for the casual fan or newcomers to live Who recordings. However, if you are a dedicated Who fan or someone that appreciates live rock at its finest, regardless of sound quality, than this release is for you. The first show on the disc is from Oklahoma City, OK 1968 while the 2nd performance is from Texas 1967. The Texas show is actually better in terms of sound quality than the OK show and arguably contains a better performance as well. This show alone is worth seeking the record out for as The Who bang out a blistering set of powerful pop-art at its finest. Just to be able to hear amazing live performances of Pictures of Lily and So Sad About Us is worth while. By the way, I've recently gone through the trouble of remastering the performances on this disc and the results are, in my opinion, quite an improvement on the original source. Look out for Cry Blue Murder remastered by theface07 for an even better listening experience of Cry Blue Murder!
