The Who: BBC Sessions
on 20 November 2011
I bought this because it contains the excellent "relay" the only other album with it is 30 years but i couldn't justify forking out over £20 when i already have a best of cd. This is a collection of their appearances at the beeb between 1965 and 1970 captured in a live environment. All 26 tracks are in chronological order more or less and include such classics as "my generation," "substitute" and a "quick one" as well as rarer tracks like "just you and me darling", "leaving here" and "good lovin." Plus a rare live version of the Everly Brothers "Man With Money." From 1970 there's a more acoustic "the seeker" and "i'm free,"as well as the old grey whistle tests full length "relay"; live vocals over backing tapes but still the best version ever for which i intend to use in my own compilation of "lifehouse," and "long live rock" from 1973. In my opinion the who were at their best live, Pete said so himself! Recommended for who fans old and new. P.S this was released in the us as a 2 disc limited edition from best buy containing seven extra songs; "Pinball Wizard" "See Me Feel Me" "I Don't Even Know Myself" "I Can See For Miles" "Heaven and Hell" "The Seeker" and "Summertime Blues." But missing from the first disc are "Man With Money" and "Spoonful" due to copyright.
