5.0 out of 5 stars 'LEGENDS OF THE ''ROCK-POP'' SCENE' 2 April 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The original members 'Pete Townsend' 'Roger Daltrey' 'Keith Moon' 'John Entwistle'
The group were as well known for their antics on the stage as for their music, they
were certainly seen as 'wild'
However Rock/Pop history will place the group as one of 'The all-Time-Great-Acts' no
question.
I guess the song that really got them noticed was their number 2 hit in 1965 'My Generation'
though they had two slightly earlier top ten successes with 'I can't Explain' and 'Anyway,
Anyhow, Anywhere'
They of course went on to record classic's such as 'Substitute' (also 1965) and maybe
their best known release featured in the film 'Tommy' --that being--'Pinball Wizard'
Down the years they achieved twenty one Top thirty entries fifteen of which charted
in the Top Ten, amazingly, though a few numbers reached number two they never actually
ever reached the number one slot.
Among the numbers on-board I've yet to mention........'I'm A Boy'......'Pictures of Lily'......
'I Can See For Miles'.......'Who are You'......'Happy Jack'......and.......'Squeeze Box'
Just some of the memorable numbers of this ''Great'' group on board (20 tracks in all)
This album is certainly worth checking out if you are wanting an example of the groups
most popular tracks.
Sadly two of the original group have along the way passed-on, those being 'Keith Moon'
7th September 1978 aged just 32, and 'John Entwistle' 27th June 2002 aged 57.

5.0 out of 5 stars great album 8 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Unlike so many compilations, which are just a money making exercise for the record companies, this is a truly great album. It's got a good mix of the old and newer tracks and is a must for all music fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Who? I'll tell you who...... 24 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the greatest compilation albums ever! Every song is played with amazing skill, extreme passion and unlimited energy. I have only one quibble with it - where is "The Kids Are Alright"??? It's a shame they had no room on the cd to put that on. Never mind. It's still top dog! If you haven't heard of The Who - buy this and weep into your hankies at the fact that you didnt discover them sooner!

5.0 out of 5 stars the epitomy of rock and roll 28 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
The 'Best of' collection of the Who is a CD that no person should be without. The Who were, and still are, the greatest rock 'n roll band the world has ever seen, and their onstage antics are legendary. Pete Townsend has written some of the best music of his generation and, combined with the vocals of Roger Daltry this music is simply astounding. As well as having invented the concept of the rock opera, the Who were influential as far as the whole sixties genre was concerned, especially in Britain, where they supplied the music for the cult TV programme: Ready Steady Go. As far as the music goes, this Cd gives a very varied collection of their songs, including the anthem 'My Generation' and classics such as 'I Can't explain', at the end of the day, any Cd collection without this Cd is not worth it.
