OK, another one of the greatest rock n’ rock bands today! That’s right, isn’t it or not? You tell me? All I know is I did do some TTT posts on a few huge 60’s/70’s acts last year but I missed a few so making up today or at least to The Who now! They is no point at all writing any kind-of intro at all from them but if you need some bio from them here’s The Who’s wikipedia page linked here.
Let’s just get on with the music, my 10 picks are in released date order are…
Anyway Anyhow Anywhere – Single (1965)
A Legal Matter – My Generation (1965)
Disguises – Ready Steady Who (1966)
Tattoo – The Who Sell Out (1967)
Pictures of Lily – Single (1967)
Pinball Wizard – Tommy (1969)
Young Man Blues – Live at Leeds (1970)
5:15 – Quadrophenia (1973)
You Better You Bet – Face Dances (1981)
Roger Daltrey – Into My Arms – As Long as I Have You (2018)
So no clear winning album for me, useless you count that kind-of singles comp album? I think, my old folks had a lot or some of them albums which would have like all those 60’s/70’s acts was my way of discovering them and like I’ve say before Pink Floyd was my fave of them all, anyway it’s The Who turn today.
So fun fact today, if you didn’t know? My opening pick/song above is the first known recorded guitar feedback ever released on record! The score board this weekend is six tracks of 60’s, two in 70’s and one from 80’s plus one solo Roger song from only last year but it’s his beautiful Nick Cave cover because everything somehow has to be related back to him! BTW Pete Townshend has his debut novel entitled The Age of Anxiety which is coming soon and both Roger and Pete are working on a brand new The Who at the moment, the only two members still with us. If you wanna know what they’re up to now?
Who’s joining in today? What’s your own fave The Who track/s? Please!
