"I think I'm posing this because I'm a dork and I can imagine a scenario where the internet and recording technologies existed in the early 70's like they do now, and ALL the Who and Deep Purple shows from their live peak were available in CD/MP3 format and considered "official" releases, kind of like all those unnecessary 71 Pearl Jam live albums. Yikes. I bet there really would be this huge mountain of D's, E's, F's and 10's if you rated all of them... haha."
That scenario made me think. If Deep Purple and The Who were around in the age of the internet they would probably be considered Jam bands. The consistantly high level of the live performances, the streached out songs, the shows being completely different from show to show. If all of their prime era shows were avaliable people absolutely would collect them and whatnot, because their live stuff is just that good.
