The Who want your bootleg recordings

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Who probably would not have appreciated anyone who bootlegged their concerts back in the day but now they want those recordings.

The Who have put out a call to fans and collectors for rare and lost recordings of the band throughout their 50-year career.

They’re looking for home movies, rare radio and TV appearances, demos, unusual photos, bootlegs and memorabilia.

A 1964 film of an early version of the band, The High Numbers, recently was discovered in a loft in the Netherlands.

The Who will give two VIP tickets to a show on their next tour to the person with the most outstanding find.

Any material used will get proper credit.
