Review from

Ah yes, what good memories there were of The Who at the Lyceum in
'73. I remember with great pleasure the Italian press commenting even more about
the show at the Lyceum than the Christmas shows at the Edmonton Sundown as
real triumphs of both critics and the public. There was a really great expectation for
their monumental new work Quadrophenia, and, therefore, the desire to listen to
these pieces live was great. It must be said that between the not really happy initial
performances in Stoke and Newcastle, The Who played really good shows in Wolverhampton,
Manchester and the three successive evenings at the Lyceum, although
the choice of this venue was not too wise.

This new boot presents the second of three shows from the Lyceum. This audience recording
is not of great sound quality (as shows booted from these years have
never been anyway) but it is acceptable. The show is presented complete, and the
band is inspired. Pete's guitar riffs on My Generation and Magic Bus are real high-
lights. In any case, they reached their maximum expression after the initial debut
with the Edmonton Sundown dates where Quadrophenia played live reached its peak.
It's good someone remembers old who fans!
