What a way to end 2014 with some missing footage of The Who Appearing. 
The show in question was transmitted on the 30th December 1970 called 'Into 71'
You can see a full line up of the show here. The 2 songs performed were 'I dont even know Myself' and 'Naked Eye' both played a lot in 1970 and were tipped to be part of the 'Lifehouse' album that ended up being 'Whos Next' Naked Eye has always been one of my favourite Who songs and though the music is on playback the vocals are live. 

I Don't Even Know Myself


Naked Eye

After they had finished it was a very quick turnaround and The Who were soon on . The first 4 bars of ‘I cant Explain’ already for me beat everything about the Quadropheania show. No disrespect to the stand ins, but with The Who now Pino and Zak are the perfect rhythm section for Pete and Roger. 







The augmentation of the band with extra keyboards and percussion really works well. A bit like the 89 tour except maybe not quite so over the top. The set was a great mixture hearing the Seeker again was a high point as was songs like So Sad about us and Pictures of Lilly both tunes I have never heard live before myself. Join Together was one of those …
