Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Who's second album is a mite inconsistent, not least because all four members were encouraged by a business deal to churn out songs. A Quick One nonetheless manages several Who classics, notably "A Quick One While He's Away," Pete Townshend's first longform (10 minutes) piece, and John Entwistle's licensed-to-ill "Whiskey Man" and "Boris the Spider." The band's sense of humor, however, gives way on rote pop tunes like Roger Daltrey's "See My Way." But CD bonus tracks like the great "Disguises" (included in a murkier mix than that on the 30 Years of Maximum R&B boxed set) and the Beach Boys tributes "Bucket T" and "Barbara Ann" are a distinct help. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars How to get "A Quick One" in stereo... March 3 2004
Format:Audio CD
Alot of people have had problems finding "A Quick One" in stereo. Here's the deal, your best bet is to buy the Polydor UK version of the CD. The artwork on the US MCA version is unchanged so it's impossible to know if it's the correct CD without taking the shrinkwrap off. Once you do that, you can't return it if it is the incorrect CD. With the Polydor import, all of the artwork on the package is the same (including the 1995 copyright date) EXCEPT for the catalog number on the binding. This will allow you to see if you have indeed received the correct CD without tearing the shrinkwrap off.
Here are the different catalog numbers:
* Polydor 527758-2 - maily mono
* Polydor 589800-2 - mainly stereo
I hope this helps everybody!

4.0 out of 5 stars Their transition album July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
For a 1966 sophomore album, this is pretty good. Regardless of each of the bandmembers having to contribute songs to this album, it's still only a sophomore album, and in 1966 the majority of albums, whether they be debut albums, sophomore efforts, or later releases, were nothing more than a couple of hit singles or popular album tracks mixed together with about ten junky throwaways so that an entire album could be filled out and boost the sales of the hit singles. How can you expect most of any band's early songs to be perfection or as classic as their later songs would be?
This is one of those albums I had to give a second listen to for the songs to really sink in and for me to fully appreciate what this album is all about, and I wouldn't recommend it to a new fan. Still, perhaps because I'm a female fan and most Who freaks are men, I've always viewed these songs as cute and campy instead of embarrassing or something that makes one want to vomit when listening to it. And you can hear that this is their transition album, going from the bubblegummy sound of the 1966 Pop Art culture that inspired it to more mature things, as evidenced in songs like the title track (how many songs in 1966 were over three minutes in length, to say nothing of nine minutes and ten seconds long?), which was their first mini-opera, as well as the other better tracks like "Boris the Spider," "Whiskey Man," and "So Sad About Us." It wasn't meant to be a masterpiece like their later albums, it was just meant as a fun slice of 1966 pop paradise.

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW!!! Audio difference is amazing Nov. 2 2011
By Bootsy Bass TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
***PLEASE NOTE...THIS REVIEW ONLY APPLIES TO THE JAPANESE (POLYDOR) VERSION. I HAVE SEEN AMAZON PUT THIS WITH REGULAR VERSIONS OF A QUICK ONE).-Shell

This Japanese CD (Polydor) is most impressive. They take the rematered CD (old MCA version) with all the bonus tracks and give us impressive stereo mixes of all the original songs (with the possible exception of "See My Way". It seems not quite mono, yet not quite true stereo but is different from the original remastered (MCA version)). It is worth every penny. The sound is more dynamic and "larger", the stereo mixes are superb! There are added bits to some songs. "I need You" has a longer harpsichord bit with the vocals coming in at a different point. " Whiskey Man" has the distinct "flend-fwend" vocal in the clear stereo mix. "So sad about us" has a unique "tag" vocal by Pete at the very end of the song that is not on any other version. And many, many more. The improved Stereo lets you hear bits you have never heard before....especially with headphones on. A 10 out of 10....

An odd selection of songs without a good unifying theme but with a peppy exuberance that is entertaining, if not edifying. Fun for the completist but not for the casual Who listener.
