5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Work From a Legend September 21, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I find it truly amazing to hear these songs played on acoustic guitar. It is really interesting to me to compare the way Pete sings it on the original take versus how Roger would sing it on the master that everyone knows. I love hearing demos of any band, but particularly of The Who. To hear "Substitute" without Keith Moon roaring in the background. Or to hear "You Better You Bet" with lyrics missing. It's thrilling for any Who fan.

Every band seems to have, at some point in their career, put together a collection of unreleased work. The Beatles had their 3 Anthology sets, The Rolling Stones released multiple collections, and now you can have the newly rereleased Scoop albums, full of fascinating material by Pete Townshend. I'm only sorry we can't hear more.

5.0 out of 5 stars If 'Scoop' was soda pop, then this is fine wine! August 2, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Like 'Scoop,' I also found this record on the $2 vinyl wall at the vintage music store in my college town. It's a shame they're both out of print now. Most of the songs on the first installment are peppy and upbeat, the musical equivalent of soda pop, but the songs on here are by and large more mature, lush, orchestrated, polished, like fine wine. Though on here, the Who demos are closer together instead of being separated by more songs, as was the case on 'Scoop.' Again you can hear the difference between the demos and what they became under Roger's vocal interpretation. Thanks to the version on this album, I received a whole new appreciation of "Don't Let Go the Coat," a song I had formerly not thought highly of. The lyrics here are a bit different from the Who version on FD, but now, lyrical differences or not, I like both versions and no longer want to skip either. There are also three songs (more like musical pieces though) here that had originally been intended for the scrapped Who album 'Siege,' which would have been released in about 1983, after IH--"Cat Snatch," "Ask Yourself," and "Prelude: The Right to Write." It was based on the idea that each of us is a soul in siege.

Side four is my fave, but there are great songs all throughout. My faves are "Brooklyn Kids," "Football Fugue," "Never Ask Me" (it should have been included on WAY!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Archive Of A Genius April 14, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Of course you know that Pete Townshend is the guitarist and main songwriter of the british rock legend "The Who" - creator of evergreen epics such as "Tommy" and "Quadrophenia". However, this man who has probably faced more ups and downs in life than most other fellow musicians of the 60s, is much more than this. He's a musical genius, perfectionist, and workaholic, dedicating most of his life to the creation of new music. He caught the zeigeist of the 60s and 70s with high reliability, which were certainly his most famous years. However, he also began exploring new directions in songwriting with increasing dedication throughout the decades. The "Scoop" album series documents this search and progression in a nice way. It's a collection of individual demos of known songs, intermixed with lots of unpublished works from the vaults. It's clearly the latter that make these "rarities" albums most appealing. However, don't you ignore the demos! They show that "Big T." is not only a good songwriter, but also a great singer and multi-instrumentalist. He might not have a good voice from a classical point of view, but he sings honestly, with all of his heart and soul - much like Peter Hammill of Van der Graaf Generator. There are only a few rock musicians on earth that I would call "honest". Pete Townshend is on my top-three list (along with Peter Hammill and Joe Jackson), and "Scoop" / "Another Scoop" are the best albums to explain why.

4.0 out of 5 stars Four essential gems among the sprawling 2 discs April 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Girl In A Suitcase (outtake from the autobiographic Who by Numbers), Brooklyn Kids & Football Fugue (2 orchestral masterpieces) , Never Ask Me (outtake from Who are You)

These may be the 4 most underrated Who related songs many people have never heard.

4.0 out of 5 stars WWTD January 30, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I'm a huge Pete Townshend Fan. I love his guitar style, his lyrical style, he's nothing less than a genius. This particular album I consider a must have for any Townshend fan. You can see many of the tracks that later became songs made famous by The Who, and songs that never made it to an album. It gives a brand new perspective in the writing style of Townshend. Along with Scoop and Scoop 3, I can always find inspiration in this album. If I run into trouble while writing, I ask myself: "What would Townshend do?"

4.0 out of 5 stars Have another scoop of music--it's good for ya! November 24, 2006
Format:Audio CD
"Another Scoop" will be essential for Who/Townshend fans. While the finished demos somethings don't differ signficantly from the version recorded by The Who to hear Townshend sing it (vs. Roger)adds another element to the song. The most fascinating bits though are acoustic demos of various songs at various stages of completion (lyrics missing, perhaps a bit of music not quite there yet). It's a fascinating glimpse into the creative process.

More important though for fans are the previously unreleased demos of songs that WEREN'T recorded by Pete or released by The Who. These aren't second rate bits of music by any stretch of the imagination but, in most cases, just didn't fit in with what Pete or the band wanted to put out at the time.

As with the other Scoop releases there's lyrics and liner notes by Pete discussing the various tracks and their recordings. If you purchased the previous version the sound is slightly better here as they were remastered from the original source tapes but keep in mind that many of these demos were recorded on 4 track machines, etc. in Pete's home studio vs. a modern recording studio and have some limitations (and charm)that you won't find on the finished album.
