  1. Perhaps I’ll answer SOME of my own question as I now have a bit more information…

    I saw a scan of the front/back artwork and the content is identical to the following pressed 2 DVD set in my collection (released at least 4 years ago):
    The Who – Charlton 1974 (The Way of Wizards WOW-046 1/2)
    It contains the original unreleased film on DVD 1 (12 tracks-63min) and then the BBC 2nd House edited version on DVD 2 (13 tracks but only 9 songs-76min).

    This new Charlton 1974 looks to be the same, but pressed on a single DVD of ~140min. I have no idea if the footage is upgraded, but I must say that this release APPEARS to be a rehash for those who missed the WOW set.

    For completeness sake, I’ll state that the BBC 2nd House version was also released on perhaps the first factory pressed DVD I purchased (probably in 2003):
    The Who – Charlton Athletic F.C. May 18, 1974 (Original Master Series OMDVD-001)

    Let’s hope we see this entire performance someday from the BBC masters.

  2. There are no plans for a review of this title. Does anyone know anything about it?

  3. The Who Charlton 1974:
    Anyone have a quick synopsis of this new title? Is this the edited broadcast or complete version? How does it compare to prior Charlton DVD releases?

  4. Hopefully, this will be a different source to the Hakone tape that Sirene released a while ago – maybe the third source used by STTP on “Echoes Of A Japanese Meddle”? As for the Hokkaido tape, with any luck Sigma will have done something about that rather distracting hiss.

  5. Thanks gs and eric for the info. I just ordered the Cream title and will try to do a review one of these days for the site when time permits. this is why this is the best site on silver boots on the internet!

  6. I have the Mid Valley Crea set from the Whiskey and I would recomend it. It’s about the same quality as the Zeppelin release and given the year it was recorded, the historic venue let alone Creams performance, it’s a worthwhile buy for any fan. Personally, when I bought it, I don’t recall it being to expensive, but that was when it was released. Now, it’s not the silver available for Cream, but the Whiskey itself, let alone a Cream concert is of historical importance in my opinion.

  7. We’re currently discussing future improvements and developments for the website, and your suggestion is a very good one. (We also are aware of the categories being out of order: it’s a pain with this format and we’ll address that too).

    Regarding the Mid Valley Cream release, I think it is of compable quality to the Zeppelin, but am not sure. I remember it being a very expensive….

  8. Not related to this News column but I was thinking of picking this title up. Does anyone know what the sound quality of the Mid Valley release Cream – Whisky A Go (9/4/67) 2 CD? Is it comparable to the Led Zeppelin 69′ Whisky release which is VG+ IMHO……Any opinions appreciated….Related to this request I have a possible suggestion for an improvement to this excellent site. Possibly add a simple forum section where members could ask opinions on titles not reviewed here?

  9. I won’t pass judgement on the Hakone portion of Sigma 24 until the review, but I do have some reservations about it. The Sapporo disc however, has a lot of promise being one of the very best early Floyd sets, period. If naught else, at least we’re being treated to a plethora of early shows lately – from my favorite era!
