A track-by-track review (all in my opinion).
1. I Can't Explain. This is the best version on CD you can find. True mono, powerful bass, punchy sound, almost no distortion. I never imagined that this rather primitive recording could sound so great.
2. The Kids Are Alright. This is the edited version (2:45) that was on the US album "The Who Sings My Generation", and that is also on "The Ultimate Collection" and the MCA "Who"s Better Who"s Best". It still sounds great, but the longer version (3:05) can be found on the Polydor "Who's Better Who's Best".
3. Happy Jack. True mono, good sound. The version on "Who"s Better Who"s Best" sounds a little cleaner, though.
4. I Can See For Miles. This is the original stereo album mix, with Pete's guitar moving between the channels during the solo. Great sound.
5. Pictures Of Lily. True mono. This is mastered just like the original single, with a fade-up at the beginning and a slight crescendo during the entire song. Good sound, but I prefer the cold start on "Who's Better Who's Best".
6. My Generation. True mono. This always sounds dirty, on every CD. But that is what it is supposed to sound. Still a signature song for The Who.
7. The Seeker. Stereo. This is the best version you can find on CD. The guitar intro blows you away.
8. Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere. True mono. Not the best-sounding recording.Read more ›

This is an early collection of the Who's career, it is very good, but lacks material. This album has stood the test of time and fallen to a lower point. Read morePublished on April 7 2004 by Gus fogle
