Description



Larry Magid's first contact with the Who was their U.S. debut performance of
Tommy at the Electric Factory in 1969: "It was mesmerizing. Keith Moon drummed so fast that his sticks kept flying out of his hands into the audience. He grabbed another set, pulsing to a violent end until he knocked over his drums, and Pete Townshend, in his white jumpsuit, smashed his guitar onstage...The show built to an explosion to make a point. It had to be emphatic—literally an explosion. The Who may have been the best band ever—they truly embodied the spirit of the music and the times."

 

Townshend's guitar antics, Moon's stick flipping, Daltrey's microphone twirling and Entwistle's toe tapping are on full glorious display in this whimsical homage. Likely the nicest example known, it's printed on light cardboard, measures 14x24 and shows phenomenal EX-MT to NM preservation.
