Biography

The Who are a four-piece mod/rock band whose first album, My Generation, bristled with attitude; the lyric "I hope I die before I get old" tapped into the disaffection felt by post-war baby boomers, helping to secure a loyal fanbase and establish the band at the forefront of the mod movement.

In the studio the band's innovative approach to recording helped to realise ... Read more in Amazon's The Who Store

1.0 out of 5 stars Another one? April 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is a disgrace. The Who's music has been repackaged countless times over, and in 2011, it still has not stopped. They are a legendary band and the 12 songs here are certainly classic rock staples, but this habit of releasing the same music again and again must cease. The really funny thing is that this CD is almost an exact carbon copy of The Who's "20th Century Masters" installment, with two extra songs added.

The Who have only released one album of new material in the last 30 years (discounting "Real Good Looking Boy" and "Old Red Wine" from 2004), and it saddens me that the record companies feel the need to further cash in on the band's popularity and legacy, especially when it has been done so many times before.

Here's a thought: redo the Leeds concert release (even the "Super Deluxe" still isn't the complete concert). Release more archival concerts. Get more studio out takes or demos out there. But for crying out loud, don't keep repackaging the hits. It's nothing more than an insult to the fans.

Get the "Ultimate Collection" 2-CD set for your package of Who hits. And let's hope more comes from the vaults one day in the future.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Music, Unnecessary Compilation May 26, 2011
By Statman
Format:Audio CD
The Who were the world's greatest live band, and pretty terrific in the studio as well. But it's getting harder and harder to defend the Who regarding an overabundance of hits compilations. This is the third one in three years, and the fifth or sixth in the past decade. At least this is much better than 2009's Greatest Hits. Icon 2 is really a nice two-disk survey of their entire career. It's just completely unnecessary. Then and Now is a superior one-disk compilation, and the Ultimate Collection really is the ultimate compilation. If the band really needs the exposure of "new" releases, and they can't come up with anything new, they should release Lifehouse and/or a coherent series of live recordings from throughout their career. Or maybe they could just re-release the Ultimate Collection every few years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Agree with Jesse May 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I agree completely with Jesse from San Francisco; this endless repackaging of old material without releasing anything new has got to stop. I gave this release three stars instead of Jesse's one star, though, for two reasons: first, it's still the greatest rock music ever made; and second, it might actually contain some photos we haven't seen before.

I'm puzzled by the inclusion of "Real Good Looking Boy" and "It's Not Enough," which are great songs but weren't hits, while "The Relay," which is a great song and WAS a hit, is not present.

A few years ago there was talk of a new release consisting of "more traditional Who material" and an album of new performances of songs the band used to cover when they were still playing clubs in London. What ever happened to that?

I agree that releasing some of the live recordings from the extensive archives that Pete Townshend reputedly possesses would be a good idea. Finally putting all the songs from "Lifehouse" together on one release would be great, too.

On a lighter note, though, don't forget what my brother always says: it's all economics. We wouldn't be seeing these seemingly endless re-releases if people weren't buying them. Great music endures.
