Who was the greatest live rock band ever? You know who, and now here's a chance to hear them live in the studio, performing 26 tracks culled from the vaults of the British Broadcasting Corporation spanning the years 1965 to 1973. Includes: My Generation Radio One Jingle ; Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere ; Good Lovin' and Just You and Me (both songs released for the first time in any form); Leaving Here ; The Good's Gone ; La La La Lies ; Substitute ; Man with Money , and more.not styled correctly (see below for correct form)
One of the most creative and explosive bands of the '60s, the Who didn't record an official live album until 1970. For fans of the revved-up, introspective, and humorous fare that made records such as My Generation, Sell Out, and A Quick One instant classics, 1970 was a good three years too late. Rather than referring to sometimes-dodgy bootlegs to discover what "Pictures of Lily," "Disguises," or "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" sounded like live, we are now presented with a surprisingly clear document of the band at--arguably--their peak. The CD, culled from archival live-in-the-studio radio broadcasts made between '65 and '73, keeps all the radio-announcer introductions and short interview segments intact, with a few bonus, real-life Sell Out jingles for good effect. A fabulous portrait of the artists as a young band, the disc brims with minor revelations--chief among them that they were pretty sorry as an R&B outfit and that (surprise) with Moon, Entwhistle, and Townshend bashing about, even a midtempo number like "Happy Jack" was a total scorcher live. --Mike McGonigal
