Product Description


A glowering cover photo, on-the-run sound quality, and music to match. That's My Generation, and while it's hardly as consistent as The Who Sell Out, it's just as much fun to play. With the band steamrolling the title anthem, "The Kids Are Alright," "A Legal Matter," and a couple of James Brown covers, you can bet it was for them, too. Rock & roll for the hottest day of summer. --Rickey Wright

Product Description

This 1965 debut heralded a rock revolution with incendiary anthems like My Generation; The Kids Are Alright , and Out in the Street . An utterly explosive all-time classic!

5.0 out of 5 stars The First Who is Good Who July 2 2003
Format:Audio CD
It seems like centuries ago when I first heard this record. My families record player was tortured again and again listening to this album as loud as possible. Keep in mind that some of the cuts sound quite primitive by today's standards. But there are some classics here for Who fans. "Out in the Street," left me wondering did Pete really smash his guitar into his amplifier during this recording? The "Kids Are Alright" is one of my favorite and best Who song ever. "Please, Please, Please" is not a bad James Brown vocal copy. Do listen to the "Ox" and hear Keith Moon exploring and exploding on the drums. Simply terrific, (I may be dumb but who plays piano on this cut?) For Who fans this is a must. For people who braved playing the family Hi Fi so loud that their Dad would yell, "Turn that noise down," this will bring back memories. Enjoy this rock history lesson complements of the Who.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Who - Where It All Began... Oct. 3 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Who Sings My Generation marks the beginning of a long career.
BTW, never heard this album before a few days ago when I bought this along with the Deluxe Edition --- Play them back to back and you'll get the whole picture of the Who's early years (64 - 65).
Unlike the newly released remastered deluxe edition of My Generation, this album is in Mono from what I understand. Thus features the original overdubs on tracks like the title track, Instant Party (Circles), and perfect editing on the vocals on La La La Lies.
The sound may be a little more rough, but as stated above, when played along with the Deluxe Version it really doesn't make a difference. It's great altogether!!
Get it and love it!
Anyways, boy what a way to start out. This may be perhaps the first punk album...this CD Rocks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Mod Classic! March 28 2004
Format:Audio CD
The Who's 1965 debut is a real 1960's ( mod ) classic!
9 Pete Townsend originals; one band-composed instrumental and two James Brown covers, "Please, Please, Please" and "I Don't Mind"
Townsend's skills for writing both melodic and catchy tunes are very obvious here on songs like "It's Not True", "The Good's Gone", "La la la Lies" , "Circles" and "Much Too Much"
Standout tracks are the two classics "My Generation" and "The Kids Are All Right"; but "A Legal Matter", "It's Not True" and "La La La Lies" are also favourites of mine.
Hopefully this brilliant album will be remastered like all the other Who albums. There are also great single-tracks that would be relevant bonus-tracks!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Start Of The Legend Aug. 12 2002
Format:Audio CD
Yes, this is it.....the start of a legend. There is no need to tell you about the famous tracks (My Generation & The Kids Are Alright), but let's review the others. This was when the Beatles and Stones were newly minted Gods and there simply wasn't supposed to be any way to top either of them. But nobody figured there was a Keith Moon out there, or a Pete Townsend, or a guy who loved French horn named John Entwistle, and...oh yeah, that guy who sings.....Daltrey. But there was....and here is what they wanted us to hear first.
The Ox - If you haven't heard it, you don't really understand that Keith & John were as original as Pete & Roger.....play it first!
Circles - for John's French horn
Out in the Street - Townshed showing why the band would be famous within the year
I Don't Mind - har...mon...y..... you had to have it in the early days
The Good's Gone - vintage rocker even though nobody can keep up with Keith (again)
It's Not True - more vintage rock from the era that invented it
La-La Lies - the harmony that became legend when the opera started (A Quick One and Tommy)
Much Too Much - a strong number that could have been released as a single
Please, Please, Please - why do James Brown?.....why not?

5.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Who, Classic Mod Music! July 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
With the sudden, tragic death of Who bassist John Entwistle on June 27, I pulled out this album, The Who's debut disc from 1965, and played it in tribute to the late, great Ox (and I definitely plan to play more Who albums from my collection in the days ahead as well). The only Who album to unfortunately NOT get remastered yet (apparently due to producer Shel Talmy having a long-standing dispute with the band to this day), "The Who Sings My Generation" is vintage, classic Who that presents the band in all of their early Mod glory: Roger Daltrey's great voice, Pete Townshend's expert songwriting & ferocious guitar playing, John Entwistle's monstrous bass, and Keith Moon's unique smashing of the drumkit, it's all here. Classic Who songs are everywhere: "My Generation," "The Kids Are Alright," "La La La Lies," "Circles" (featuring John on french horn!), "A Legal Matter" (with a fine debut lead vocal from Pete), "Much Too Much," and the Entwistle/Moon power showcase, "The Ox." "The Good's Gone" is a terrific Who rocker, a true buried treasure from the band, and their covers of James Brown's "I Don't Mind" and "Please Please Please" are great fun.Like their contemporaries The Beatles, The Who would definitely expand their musical horizons and greatly mature as a band in the years that would follow, but they had to start somewhere, and what a fabulous start, too: "The Who Sings My Generation" is an essential rock album, capturing The Who at their most raw in 1965 when Mod was God to so many youths of the day. A classic Who album in every sense of the word. Farewell John, and say Hi to Keith for us. Long Live The Who. :-)
