Product Description

Product Description

The Who's first album, mixed in stereo for the first time by original producer Shel Talmy, plus single sides. Disc two is a collector's dream, with more loads of first-time stereo-in fact, 28 out of the 30 tracks here are in stereo!-previously unreleased, full-length versions of The Good's Gone and I Don't Mind, an unspeakably rare, French EP-only alternate version of Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere and more.


The roaring, raging quartet heard on Who's Next, Live at Leeds, and Quadrophenia is scarcely discernable on much of this, their first album. But the Mod-fueled, American R&B-inspired sense of ambitious pop that powers A Quick One, Sell Out, and even Tommy isn't so hard to find here. This reissue not only expands the original with a bonus-disc treasure trove of 17 outtakes and rarities (including the Pete Townshend-penned, previously unissued "Instant Party Mixture"), but has been remixed from the original 1964-'66 session tapes by producer Shel Talmy and released in true stereo for the first time. Anchored by early Who/Townshend anthems "My Generation" (also included in an instrumental version), "I Can't Explain," and "The Kids Are Alright," disc one's original LP set veers somewhat schizophrenically from Townshend's nascent power-guitar thrashing on the anthems and Roger Daltrey's ill-advised James Brown and Bo Diddley impressions on "Please, Please, Please" and "I'm a Man," respectively, to the surf-inspired John Entwistle-Keith Moon instrumental showcase, "The Ox." Not surprisingly, it's the Townshend originals (like "It's Not True," "Legal Matter," and the proto-psychedelic "Circles") that point to what the band would become in a few short years. The bonus material on disc two leans equally heavily on covers, but also contains its share of signposts to the future Who, including a rare, alternate version of "Anyhow, Anyway, Anywhere." Also included is a new booklet with many rare photos and a history of the album's recording by Andy Neill (coauthor of Anyway Anyhow Anywhere: The Complete Chronicle of the Who 1958-1978). --Jerry McCulley

Their first album is Great! Before I had been a bit leery about purchasing the first two Who albums because I was afraid of a Beatles sounding mono recording dissapointment. When the the deluxe stereo version of My Generation appeared on the shelves I no longer had any excuse and grudgingly forked over the cash. After listening to the first 30 seconds of the first track, I turned my car around, went back to the record store and bought the stereo version of A Quick One. Hearing Daltrey's refreshing guttural vocals on Out in the Street was enough to convince me that my stupid fears were unfounded. I don't own the mono version so I can't whine and complain about missing overdubs and such, but I will say that a poster could have been included for the $30 store shelf price. I'm not sure I would recommend My Generation (Deluxe)to new fans, Who's Next or The Ultimate collection would more appropriate. But for those already established fans who are considering this purchase, but have been discouraged by some of previous negative reviews and are wondering if its worth the money, I would answer with a qualified YES!

This Deluxe Edition sounds fantastic!!! You will never hear this album better and in STEREO.
Now about those "missing" parts.
There seems to be alot of people with ZERO knowledge of the 1960s recording process reviewing this album and saying such things as shame on The Who and their Producer Shel Talmy for releasing this Deluxe Edition with "missing" parts.
Well, let me enlighten you. Those "missing" parts aren't missing at all. They only exist in the MONO version. I'll repeat that; THEY ONLY EXIST IN THE MONO VERSION! The reason for this, those parts of the songs were dubbed (recorded) directly onto the MONO master. Those missing parts were NEVER recorded in STEREO to begin with back in 1965!
So how the heck do you expect them to be in the STEREO version?
If you like the MONO versions, stick with them but don't slag this album for having "missing" parts. There is NOTHING missing on the STEREO version of My Generation Deluxe.

This album captures the spirit of the Who so perfectly that it remains the best thing they ever produced. Don't worry that only one or two of the songs may be familiar to you -- it's not your fault radio was too narrow-minded to play this great album in its entirety. Here you can hear how the Who made something new out of what The Beatles, The Stones and The Kinks were doing, and you can hear how they influenced the likes of The Ramones and everyone who followed. This is groundbreaking, great rock and roll.

I just got this a couple of weeks ago and had to add my opinion here. I think it's great to have almost all the Talmy-produced recordings in one package. For the most part they sound better, and I can forgive the loss of the overdubbed material. But where is the original version of "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere"? That could have fit on the first CD.
As far as the "missing bits", I'm not too concerned about them. Get "Rarities vol 1" for the 2nd version of "Circles" (I think that version's better anyway). Get the "30 years" box set for the double tracked vocal on "The kids are alright" -- you need the box set anyway. "La-la-la lies" sounds way better in stereo so I'm not concerned with the vocal gaffe. And the additions to this collection are wonderful. Love "Instant Party Mixture" -- it sets the listener up for the craziness of the "Quick One" CD.
Get that while you're at it. Heck, just get the entire Who catalog on CD. You know you want to.

My Generation (1965.) Who's first album.
In the late sixties and the seventies, British rock quartet the Who really made a name for themselves by shelling out some of the greatest songs in classic rock history. It was in 1965 that Keith Moon, John Entwistle, Roger Daltry, and Pete Townsend released their first full-length album, entitled My Generation. Read on for my review of this album.
The Who featured on this album may be the same four guys that would take the band to unrealistic heights in the late sixties and the seventies, but the band as a whole is radically different. This isn't progressive classic rock or one of those rock operas they would become infamous for - it's just straight-up sixties-style classic rock. There are also a few old rhythm and blues covers. If you're expecting the band's debut album to be something along the lines of Tommy, Who's Next, and/or Quadrophenia, you're going to have to change your expectations drastically. To put it simply, this is a pretty basic album, and like many of the sixties rock bands, there is some pretty heavy Beatles and Rolling Stones influence - the Beatles influence is particularly noticable on the hit The Kids Are Alright. And, of course, there's the title track which has gone on to become one of the most famous songs of all time, in any genre. The non-hit rockers are also good, but they're nothing too revolutionary. I'm not too crazy about the rhythm and blues covers, though - some of them just sound weird! All in all, this is a pretty uneven album, but it's still a good one overall.
Like many classic rock albums, this one has been rereleased as a part of the Deluxe Edition series.
