Pete Townshend's 1972 solo album Who Came First also reissued

The Who will finally release an official album of their much bootlegged 1968 Fillmore East shows for their 50th anniversary in April.

Originally planned as the follow-up to The Who Sell Out, the release of Live At The Fillmore East was scrapped when it was discovered that only part of the first night’s concert had been recorded. Luckily the second night was also captured and this has now been fully restored and mixed by Who sound engineer Bob Pridden from the original four-track tapes.

Live At The Fillmore East 1968 will be released in 3xLP and 2xCD editions on April 20. The tracklistings are as follows:
