Editorial Reviews

Who Came First is the debut album by Pete Townshend, released in 1972. It includes demos from the abandoned concept album Lifehouse, part of which became Who's Next. The original release had a gatefold cover and included a poster with additional photos of Meher Baba from the Louis van Gasteren film Beyond Words.

The cover photo of Townshend standing on eggs is a reference to the eternal question: 'Who came first? The chicken or the egg.' It peaked at number 30 on the UK album chart and at number 69 on the US Billboard 200.

We celebrate the 45th Anniversary with a 2CD expanded version of the album, housed in 8 panel Digi DVD packaging, the original poster from the 1972 release and 24 page booklet which contains rare images of Meher Baba and Pete in his recording studio. Also included are new sleeve notes provided by Pete himself.

Remastering has been carried out by long term Pete Townshend and The Who collaborator Jon Astley, using original master tapes. CD1 consists of the original album as it was released, CD2 includes unreleased tracks, alternative versions of songs such as Parvardigar, Day Of Silence and live performances.
