Maybe the fact that they didn't switch up the song order

makes their shows seem even less diverse than other bands' but The Who seemed to be less willing to switch things up than most groups from the era. And hey, I dig the "My Generation" jam on "Live At Leeds" as much as anybody but you can't really compare them to groups like The Dead, because like you said, they were just all about jamming anyway (good thing too, since they couldn't write a decent song to save their lives and their vocals were always garbage). Hendrix represents a nice middle ground- jamming was a huge part of the appeal of his shows and he had his standbys that he knew folks wanted to hear but he still knew how to switch up his setlists enough to keep things interesting. And when he had a new album coming out, he's actually bother to through at least a couple of songs from it into his shows.
