Note

Joe McMichael and "Irish" Jack Lyons about the show: "Quadrophenia got off a bad start at this concert. It had not been exhaustively rehearsed beforehand and The Who thought, with extensive use of tapes, that the completey piece could be played live. This show unfortunately proved them wrong. After only one performance, three songs, 'The Dirty Jobs', 'Is It In My Head' and 'I've Had Enough', were dropped from the set ... Other difficulties were encountered with guitars: because many of the songs required capos, Townshend found he had to change guitars over 20 times ... The fans, however, weren't as disappointed as the band themselves were, and had been treated to several novelties such as a quadrophonic PA system delivering storm and sea sound effects and John Entwistle playing a large trumpet on 'Helpless Dancer'."
