5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Deluxe Editions ever! 27 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Universal Music have released many 2-CD sets(by many artists) in their "Deluxe Edition" series, and I have most of them in my collection, but none are more impressive than this set, which gives you the original 1967 stereo & mono mixes of "The Who Sell Out", plus a nearly vault-clearing excavation of 27 bonus tracks.

No matter which mix of the album you prefer, Universal Music offers all of them. Personally, I prefer the more Hifi sound of the 1995 stereo remix(not included here, though easily available on the 1-CD expanded edition). The original stereo mix is murkier & muddier, but this 2-CD set puts it back in print, and offers the mono mix for the first time in the UK(no need to hunt for the deleted Japanese mono CD).

There are actual musical differences between the stereo & mono mixes, including a different guitar solo on "Our Love Was".

For the bonus tracks, the compilers have used original 1967 mixes, except for tracks where no original mix(or no stereo mixes) existed. Original masters & multitracks are used, excepting when the Uk mono single mix of "Someone's Coming" is presented on Disc 2. Apparently, the only tapes that could be found had unsatisfactory sound or did not match exactly with the mix heard on the original Uk single, so American collector Luke Pacholski has supplied a digital dub from his vintage Track Records single. More Hifi conscious listeners can listen to an excellent 1995 stereo remix on Disc One.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only The Who could have produced this 11 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
What separated the great British Bands (The Kinks, The Who, The Stones, Beatles, Small Faces) from the rest of the world was that their songs contained the essential elemements of great songwriting - harmony, melody, rhythmn, syncopation, quality musicianship, storytelling, pathos, humour and whimsy. Us Brits were particularly good at the last two and one only has to look at the Kinks complete masterpiece Autumn Almanac or the Small Faces Lazy Sunday Afternoon to see what I mean. I mean, c'mon gang, can you think of anybody else but Ray Davies who could come up with the chords to something lke Autumn Almanac? Well, yes, actually - Pete Townsend.

This fine, clever and genuinely funny album sprang out of those wierd "becoming aware" days of "A Quick One", pirate radio stations, mass marketing, selling the beautiful dream and so on. Some of the songs are very funny, some very moving, some very rocky, all interspersed with pirate radio jingles .. "Radio London Reminds you ... go to the Church of your choice".

I cannot think of anybody but the Who who would have produced this , at this precise time. The Band had already shown that they thought that the world was really a funny old place with "Pictures of Lily", "Happy Jack", "Dogs" and so on, but this work contains at least 4 genuine masterpieces - Sunrise, a most stunning love song with a difficult and affecting jazz chord sequence, Tatoo, which is just so funny (My Dad beat me 'cause mine said "mother"), I can see For Miles, the most savage and chilling revenge song of all time and The Medac Song - yes, I love this ... "Henry laughed and cried "I got 'em" ... his face is like a baby's ... bottom". Go on, stop smiling!! Pure genius. Pointless to detail all the tracks, but there is not one weak moment here.

5.0 out of 5 stars mind blowing 23 Nov 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What can I say. If you never got to experience the sixties, like I didn't, then this amazing concept album will let you do so. It takes on the role of a pop radio station of that era and also the young brillant mind of The Who. I can see for miles is the masterpiece the rest of the album is centered around. It way surpasses A quick one and sets the path for Tommy, even more so on this re-release which includes Glow girl. A excellent album and is up there with Sgt. pepper as one of the best concept albums of all time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it before Amazon 'sell out'! 18 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
I am going to review this as a reissue - that is, I will take it as read that 'The Who Sell Out' as an album is an excellent album which should be owned by all lovers of 1960s pop music and of rock music in general. I will therefore concentrate on how the album has been presented for this so-called 'deluxe edition'.

Firstly, and most importantly, this album features both original 1967 mixes of this album. Someone else states that the stereo version here is a remaster of the 2006 remix but this is wrong. It is a remaster of the original and superior 1967 stereo mix. Easiest way to tell: the original mix of 'Rael' (included here) does not feature the lines beginning 'The country of my fathers' - the remixed version does. Also, the stereo placement (and, in some places, the actual instrumental parts used) differs from the later mix.

The mono mix has never been issued on CD officially before and some of it is a real revelation - particularly 'Our Love Was', with an entirely different guitar solo. Many of the other songs also 'breathe' in a whole different way to the stereo mix.

The bonus tracks are a mixture of the familiar and unfamiliar - different mixes of songs and outtakes from the sessions which have never seen the light of day before (such as the great jam 'Sodding About' and an alternate version of 'Glittering Girl'), sit alongside b-side material such as 'Someone's Coming'.

Sonically, Jon Astley has done a great job simply remastering this - a far better job than he did at remixing The Who's back catalogue (and I think he did that pretty well). Visually it is nice, too - lots of photos and also a reproduction of the original album poster, plus two essays (one from the 1995 reissue).
