As a collector of the Deluxe Editions of many bands, I have heard both good and mediocre sets. The mediocre ones suffer from thin extras. WHO'S NEXT however is perfect.

Disc one presents the classic album is high fidelity and a generous bunch of outtakes. Disc two is a great surprise: The Old Vic show where the band honed the songs to, well, perfection. This set is bursting with great music, in quality and quantity.

If you buy only 1 Who CD, this is it.

As most people know, one of the main selling points of Who's Next: Deluxe Edition is that the original album comes from the original stereo master tapes "for the first time on CD". The story is that only copy tapes have been used all of these years. On the other hand, Steve Hoffman, former MCA engineer, has claimed for a long time that he found the master tapes in a file cabinet at the Mastering Lab in LA in the mid-80s and used them for his CD version, one variation of which is still available in Canada today.
Well, between listening to the two side by side and running the tape box pictures past Steve, it would indeed seem the Deluxe Edition is the *second* time (at the very least) the true masters have been used for CD. There's little doubt in my mind that Hoffman's version also used the tapes. Both forms of the album sound quite good, although there are some differences between the two.
The Hoffman CD has an EQ that favors the vocals, with the side effect of causing the cymbals to sound a bit "midrangy". The Deluxe Edition, on the other hand, goes for a slightly more "smooth" cymbal sound, at the expense of the vocals, causing them to be submerged slightly, if you will. The DE is a bit less "open", IMO.
There are also some minor differences beyond EQ. For his CD, Hoffman essentially played the tapes back "straight", without fading the hiss out between tracks. [side note: the Canadian version has the hiss "blacked" between some tracks. The original US and Japanese pressings don't.] The Deluxe Edition takes a different approach. As the songs come to a close, the entire track is faded out, causing the hiss to fade as well. The side effect of this is that in some cases the very last moments of some songs are lost.

Although the Deluxe Edition hypes that the original version uses the original master tapes for the first time, this is not true. In 1984, Steve Hoffman remastered this disc in the 1980s (a copy of the digital master he made from the original master tape was used on this Canadian budget import version available at hmv.com, absound.ca, cdplus.com and other Canadian music stores). The master tape was found in a file cabinet in The Mastering Lab in LA back in the 1980s and used it for the CD. The Hoffman CD has an EQ that favors the vocals. For his CD, Hoffman essentially played the tapes back "straight", without fading the hiss out between tracks. [side note: the Canadian version has the hiss "blacked" between some tracks. The original US and Japanese pressings don't.]

This is a review for what Amazon lists as "Who's Next (Original Mix)" which from what I understand, is supposed to be the original Canadian release of the CD.

From what I was told, this is Steve Hoffman's master. It also clocks in at 43:26.

It sounds fantastic in my opinion, and is worth the price.

Also, from what I've heard, it is sourced from an analog tape copy of Steve Hoffman's master. But it still sounds great regardless. It's supposed to sound very close (if not, just like) the original Japanese release, aside from some fadeouts on certain tracks (which doesn't bother me at all personally).

I highly recommend this particular version of the disc. It might save you time and money tracking down the original Japanese disc.

Shm-Sacd version is richer and deeper sounding than the regular CD but requires above average sound system to hear the difference and make it worth the money.

Format: Audio CD
The owner of a local CD store recently told me that the current 15 - 25 year old demographic is buying more 1970s music than the music of any other era, including contemporary bands. In fact, he said, 1970s bands like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd outsell all of today's bands combined! Interesting statistic, if it's true.

If the younger guys have this interest in 1970s music, then perhaps those of us who were around in the 1970s should put them on to some of that decade's better music.

Here's one contribution from me. The Who's Who's Next is one of the 10 best albums of the 1970s. As such, it should be considered one of the essential albums in any collection of 1970s music.

It's just an excellent album throughout.

For those of you who haven't heard the album, you may be familiar with one track. The CSI TV series franchise has taken tunes by The Who as the theme music for its shows. The song 'Who Are You', for example is the theme for the CSI show based in Las Vegas. CSI: NY uses a song from this album 'Baba O'Riley' as it theme music.

You know you're getting old when the music you listened to in high school becomes elevator music and the theme music for TV shows. What a depressing thought!

Bottom line: Great album. One of the 1970s best albums. If you're collecting 1970s music, this is an essential album for your collection.
