This was the first vinyl LP I bought for myself, the first of February 2001, at the great vintage music store in my college town. I had a few kiddy records from childhood, but haven't listened to them in years; this record was my true first vinyl LP. Unfortunately, at the time I didn't have a record player and my parents had long since thrown ours out when it broke, so I had to display the record in my dorm room as eye candy till I got my first record player later that year on the day after my birthday. The ten and a half months of waiting were worth it. I don't normally go in for greatest hits packages anymore, but the songs are great regardless of being mostly a collection of singles and not album tracks. I got it on vinyl because I had been told that the CD version is missing the long version of "Magic Bus," the single version of "Substitute," and the rare "I'm a Boy" with horns and slightly different lyrics. The only thing I would change about it is the inclusion of "A Legal Matter," a song which may have gotten to #32 in Britain but which isn't as well-loved by the fans as the even-lower-charting "TKAA" (also included here, though I'm told left off of the 1996 compilation 'My Generation'), which reached #41. They did include "Boris the Spider," which was only an album track, but that song is well-loved and well-known, not some minor hit that most fans don't consider a classic or personal favourite. By that same token, they could also have included "Call Me Lightning," which hit #40, and "Dogs," which was #25. Still, it did a great job at introducing Americans to the early Who songs which had only been hits in Britain, and even though the most recent hit on it is "The Seeker," it's still one of the most classic greatest hits packages out there.
