“Squeeze Box”, “Behind Blue Eyes”, and “Dreaming from the Waist” were included on the 1996 reissue of The Who By Numbers.
“Pinball Wizard”, “I’m Free”, and “Squeeze Box” appear on the Greatest Hits Live compilation album.
“Squeeze Box”, “Dreaming from the Waist”, “Fiddle About”, “Pinball Wizard”, “I’m Free”, “Tommy’s Holiday Camp”, “We’re Not Gonna Take It”, and “See Me, Feel Me/Listening To You” were released on the View from a Backstage Pass live compilation album.
