The main difference this time is the inclusion of BABA O'RILEY, my favourite WHO song and a baffling omission from the earlier compilation. It's as powerful as ever, featuring the most impassioned vocal that Daltrey ever committed to vinyl. A true enduring classic.
The main point of interest for diehard WHO fans last time around was the inclusion of two "new" songs, the first new WHO recordings in donkeys years. Whilst OLD RED WINE was as stale as its' title might suggest, the other track REAL GOOD LOOKING BOY was excellent, and has wisely been retained for the new compilation (whilst OLD RED WINE has quietly been poured down the sink).
Bringing the new compilation further up to date is the inclusion of IT'S NOT ENOUGH from the bands 2006 album ENDLESS WIRE. A strange choice, in my opinion, as MIKE POST THEME or (better still) WE GOT A HIT would have been far more appropriate.
Apart from these minor quibbles, though, this is an excellent CD full of wonderful, timeless rock music. And at less than a tenner it represents ludicrously good value for money. Buy it and love it!
Highlights? Everything except Squeeze Box. Over the years I've learnt to tolerate this song by concentrating on the music and trying to ignore the "seaside dirty postcard" lyrics - even Pete Townshend described it as "a poorly-aimed dirty joke"!
The disc covers every era of The Who from their earliest recordings until 2004 (two new tracks recorded specifically for this disc).
I have three minor gripes:
1. I already had everything on this CD in my collection with the obvious exception of the two new tracks. I had to buy the CD to keep my collection complete. I waited till it came down in price - I would have felt well and truly ripped off if I had paid full price for the sake of two new songs.
2. It's Hard is generally overlooked when people discuss The Who. It may not be one of The Who's best albums but there are some good songs on it and I would have thought it possible to find one to grace this collection (Athena would have been my suggestion, but they didn't ask me!).
3. No John Entwistle songs. Admittedly, Pete Townshend has written the vast majority of songs recorded by The Who, but surely they could have found room for one of John's songs. My suggestion would be Trick of the Light from Who Are You.
The two new songs - Real Good Looking Boy and Old Red Wine - are well and truly worthy of inclusion. Despite my three gripes, the quality of music on this disc is such that I can't possibly justify anything less than five stars.
