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

Editorial Reviews

There is no more significant a milestone in Rock Music than the 50th Anniversary. Alongside The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, THE WHO complete the holy trinity of British Rock bands that have the honor of celebrating that landmark. Through the decades, THE WHO redefined rock music as we know it and their influence continues in all areas of popular culture to this day. WHO HITS 50! is the definitive collection of the band's greatest tracks from their very first recordings as The High Numbers right up to the present day with the brand new track 'BE LUCKY.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Hits Bulls Eye on 50th October 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Who Hits Bulls Eye on 50th - 42 tracks - many of the early singles are presented in Mono - Zoot Suit/I Can't Explain/Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere/My Generation/Substitute/The Kids Are Alright/I'm A Boy/Happy Jack/The Last Time/Magic Bus - the remainder Stereo.

Interesting selection for this compilation - I'm not sure why 'The Last Time' was included? I can think of a number of other tracks to include - why not throw in a B side (Dog Part II, Baby Don't You Do It or Water?) - Trick Of The Light makes a compilation appearance - Won't Get Fooled Again is an Edit - Postcard (nice touch).

Nice to see the long version of 'Magic Bus' - previously only available on Meaty Beaty Big & Bouncy Vinyl LP.

Boris the Spider is a new remix - it is noticeable in John's vocals.

1 new track included.

I would have liked a nice inlay booklet with a track by track notation but can't complain too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars LONG LIVE ROCK is missing? October 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Long Live Rock is not here but Postcard is? I don't know why those dudes in The Who made this decision but God Bless Them. Otherwise the compilation is outstanding! The sound is first rate. The music is over the top. It's The Who, what did you expect. Be Lucky is amazing. The first time I heard it you had to pry the smile off my face. Sounds like classic Who to me, with its Did You Steal My Money sounding chorus. A new Real Good Looking Boy single edit sounds good too. In my opinion it has more punch except they didn't need to edit out the curse word. Oh well I'm not going to complain about the choices of the most important band in my life. I love The Who now just as much as I did when I first heard them. See you at their Who Hits 50 tour. I got my ticket and can't wait.

I like the songs they chose pretty well. Of course we all have our choices and thoughts of what has been left out, but overall this is about as great a collection on 2 CD's as you're likely to get. By the Who or any other band other than the Beatles. Only one MAJOR problem: Why, oh why put the terrible "single edit" of perhaps the greatest rock song ever recorded, "Won't Get Fooled Again?" The full version belongs on here, far more than some of the later, post-Moon songs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Talk about odds and sods! October 29, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
On the anniversary of The Who hitting 50 I decided to physically purchase my first Who compilation in many years. It's a doozie, for good and bad.

First the good: the mono singles of early hits and the full length version of "Magic Bus" are reasons for many to pick up this collection. The sound is good, and the selection is more varied than just a hits collection, including a cover of the Stones' "The Last Time," odd misses "Dogs" and "Call Me Lightning," and one of my favorite later songs by the Ox "Trick of the Light." Sound is very good throughout as well.

The bad: can anyone explain why the album it's Hard gets three cuts and Who Are You and Quadrophenia, Who by Numbers,even Face Dances just get two? Get rid of the title track "It's Hard" and place "Dreaming From the Waist," or "The Real Me," or even "Another Tricky Day" in the track order. I also don't know why they included the edited version of "Won't Get Fooled Again" when there is space for the full length version, as nature intended. The edit of "Real Good Looking Boy" didn't seem necessary, as it's one of the better latter day Who tracks. Surely any Who fans who've heard the album version of "Who Are You" aren't going to be offended by the word bleebed out in that song? And the edit of 'Boy' sounds clumsy as well.

All that said, it's a nice compilation with a new song and enough extras that it doesn't feel as if it's just another compilation. The sound is great and the track selection includes some long forgotten favorites such as "Relay" and one of my person faves "Slip Kid."

Really?!?!
I have a problem with the hits compilations continuing to be released, but I have zero problem with The Who touring still with Pino on bass and Zak Starkey or Scott DeVours on drums. The Who is still great live. Their 2013 Quadrophenia & More Tour show I saw in Tulsa was mind-blowing. Pete can... Read More

for once a decent compilation
Interesting that disc one contains many of the early singles in MONO - I am interested in collecting the mono recordings. I am trying to remember if The Who have included the mono versions on other releases. The list is better than I thought it would be.
