Didn’t ATCO release most of this in 1986 as “Deep End Live”?
George, Deep End Live was the 1986 album of the Deep End concert at Brixton Academy, London, 1985.
I want this album. I wish Pete toured solo more frequently.

Isn’t Mrs. Chyna Whyne on this record?
No, she’s not, Hans-Peter.
Yes she is. aka Coral Gorden.
Many thanks for the correction, Billy!
I was at that concert and also another one with David Gilmour. Or was it the same one? Time has erased my memory.
Hello big fan here. Would like to purchase this album along with It’s Hard. Is this site selling them? I don’t do record stores at all. And would buy it from thewho.com in a heart beat. Thanks, Marty the who guy!!!!
Hi Marty, the only place you can purchase both of these Record Store Day releases is from independent record stores. It’s a way of keeping those indies in business. I’m afraid you’re going to have to bite the bullet and get yourself down to a record store. You’re a big Who fan. It’ll be well worth it and you’ll be glad you did!
Didn’t Pete cover “Save it for Later” at this concert?
No, ‘Save It For Later’ was from Deep End Live! from Brixton Academy.
