Endless Wire sounds like a Pete Townshend solo album with Roger doing the singing. That's not a bad thing.

I would love to hear the discarded material for Endless Wire. I remember Townshend posting a few really strong acoustic numbers on his website a few years back (Endless Wire gestated for quite some time) that never appeared on the album in any recognizable form.

I've a 2-disc greatest hits by The Who which is fantastic. I'm planning on going through their full albums soon.

I think they are two of The Who's best songs and also two of the best songs ever written. I just picked up Quadrophenia but still have to listen to it. Who's Next is a classic. Magic Bus is another great song.

All together, they're an amazing band that I wish I would have gotten into before their recent tours.
Yeah, I love Who's Next, very very strong throughout. Baba O'Riley, man that's one of the best songs I've ever heard.

They're in my top five

My favorite albums:

Tommy
Who's Next
Quadrophenia
Live at Leeds
Ultimate Collection (for the singles not contained in albums)

And to anybody starting to love this band , never miss the best Who DVD, Kids are Alright.
What era's the DVD from?

5. A Quick One While He's Away (8/10)
6. The Who Sings My Generation (7.5/10)
7. Tommy (6.5/10)
8. Endless Wire (6.5/10)

The Who is a pretty good studio band, but one of the best live bands ever. Seriously, compare some of the tracks on Tommy to their live incarnations on the deluxe version of Live At Leeds. It's ridiculous.

No self-respecting Who fan should be without The Who Sell Out. It's completely underrated and awesome.
I haven't heard any live Who, but from all I've heard it's quite good.

It was made back in the late 70s, early 80s I think and covers the band from the beginning up to that time.

Go buy it right now.

In fact, I just had the soundtrack in my car cd changer and that version of Won't get Fooled Again fucking cranks.

A great look into the Who. I watched the Smothers Brothers Show religiously when it was on (loved Pat Paulsen), so must've seen the episode with The Who (don't remember though). But the chaos of their performance and the look on Tommy & Dick's faces are worth checking this dvd out alone. Keith Moon ftmfw!

Long live rock

great band, obviously. Classic stuff.

I find I prefer their earlier work...the more poppy Beatles-biting stuff from the 60's. I still love the bombast of Who's Next and Quadrophenia, don't get me wrong.

But songs like:

The Seeker
A Legal Matter
I'm A Boy
Pictures of Lily
Substitute
I Can't Explain
The Kids Are Alright, etc.

...You can't beat it. Pretty much the entirety of the compilation Meaty, Beaty, Big and Bouncy is just ridiculously fun, awesome stuff.

The Relay may be my favorite Who song.

Well The Kids Are Alright is now on my list, along with Live at Leeds (original or reissue??), Quadrophenia and My Generation.

From TWSO, I'm enjoying Armenia City in the Sky, I Can See For Miles, Our Love Was, I Can't Reach You.

Just noticed that The Kids Are Alright will be on TCM (Turner Classic Movie channel) Friday night 11:00 PM.

If you like the Who and haven't seen this, it's well worth it! And if you have seen it, see it again.
