Best Bootleg Baba O' Riley?

I was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a bootleg with a good version of Baba O' Riley on it? Something which comes close to the brilliance of the 'Live at the Garden' DVD...I've not got any live audio version of it so any recommendations would be appreciated! :)

Regards,

Jamie
You can't spend your time alone, re-digesting past regrets - you can't come to terms and realize you're the only one who can forgive yourself - it makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

    I wasn't even there, but it's stuck out for me as a kick-ass, high-energy version on the bootleg, and I've seen them play Baba live a few times… Anyone care to back me up?

    There are many good ones. To me the scream at the start is very important.
    I like it to be there if it's good, but there are some that have no scream that work very nicely.
    Haveling no scream is better than having a bad one I think.
    Anyway the Baba version from Hamburg 2000 always stands out to me for some reason.
    I like the scream at the start. This take somehow feels more contained until 1:15 when the first verse ends, which makes a bigger contrast. Another nice thing about it I think is the fact that you can hear the tambourine very clearly. Before they go into the don't cry part Eddie very quickly says:" 666".

    I’m partial to Toronto 2000.  I agree with the poster who noted the importance of the scream at the beginning- crucial to a good version to me.
