THE TEN GREATEST BOOTLEGS Page 5
By Pat O' Connor
9. THE WHO: WHO PUT THE BOOT IN
(Recorded live at the Charlton, England Football Stadium on 1/18/74)
This great WHO recording was taped at a soccer field in Charlton and features live renditions of "Baba O'Riley," "Summertime Blues" and "Won't Get Fooled Again." This is an excellent soundboard recording, even better sounding (with a better set-list) than their official live record Live At Leeds. This particular show merited The Who as "The loudest band in the world" (until they were defeated by four furry-clad manly men known as Manowar - Ed.) according to the Guinness Book of World Records, measuring in at a whopping 120 decibels. Get this bootleg and hear why!
10. BLACK SABBATH: PARIS '70
(Recorded live in December 1970 in Paris, France)
This was originally recorded for French television (and is currently available on video as well) and features one hour of classic, vintage Black Sabbath during their Paranoid tour. The sound quality is excellent, and the band performs such brilliant classics as "N.I.B.," "War Pigs" and "Paranoid," but the real treat for Sab fans are the live versions of the rarely performed "Hand Of Doom" and an ultra-rare cover of the Carl Perkins/Elvis song "Blue Suede Shoes." This is a must for fans of old Sabbath!
