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!
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

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!
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!
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?
