Product description

Amazon.co.uk

This 26-track collection traces The Who's transition from R&B covers ("Dancing In The Street", "Good Lovin'") to assured art-rock, and includes previously unreleased versions of "My Generation", "Substitute", "I'm A Boy" and "Happy Jack". The later tracks ("The Seeker", "I'm Free" and "Shakin' All Over") capture The Who between the ambitious Tommy and the energetic Live At Leeds, while period atmosphere is provided by resilient DJ Brian Matthew, who gets Pete Townshend to admit that by January 1967 The Who had destroyed about 6,000 of equipment. In between is a striking version of The Who's first opera, "A Quick One" and a couple of jingles recorded for Radio 1 at a time when it was the only national outlet for pop music. Altogether a fascinating account of the band's development, although it was a close-run thing--in 1965 the BBC had turned The Who down for being "ponderous and unentertaining". --Patrick Humphries

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.

This is an absolutely indispensable purchase for fans who may have the original studio recordings and think they could do without this collection. I've been reading about The Who's BBC sessions and their live sound in the early days, I think this CD probably gives the best impression of the 'Oo at their 'orriblest! The sound is so much heavier than the studio versions, it's really given me a clear picture of why they made such an impact on people who saw them live in the 60's and 70's (I've only seen them in the last 3 years)
I would also suggest this a great buy for people who wanted to sample The Who especially the early stuff, the versions you find here have (in my opinion) stood the test of time better than the formally released studio recordings.
A great CD from a great, great band - this is where ROCK was invented - Long live rock.

This is a very enjoyable listening experience of The Who. The era covered is from the mid-sixties to the early seventies. The material is from recordings specially made for the BBC and consist of live tracks and specially recorded studio tracks. Worth noting is on this european Polydor release also has "Man With Money" and "Spoonful" from "Shakin' All Over" which is not on the U.S. MCA release due to licensing problems.Overall this disc will take you back to the days of great radio.LONG LIVE ROCK!

being a who fan it would be too easy to say that the bbc sessions is a really good album.That said,to a new ,or curious fan trying to experience the "vintage" sound of the origional line up,then there is not a better starting point than this album. Not only does it cover the early days of their youth,but brings you through to their days of being the "loudest rock and roll band"(guiness book of records 1976). Non who fans and extreme fans alike,if you only buy one who album,dont buy the everyday compilation as the who were and are not a chart/single band,they are a live band. And as far as bands go ,they are still on tour now ,and , having seen them at glasgow in november they have never been better. martin davies

By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 3 Sept. 2015
Format: Audio CD
I agree with the favourable reviews here: this is a good record of The Who playing live at the BBC in the 60s with some great stuff on it, along with some slightly less enduring tracks.

They were a brilliant live band - one of the finest I've ever seen - and it shows here. There's terrific energy and drive, of course, but also real skill and musical virtuosity; some of the harmony singing, for example, is excellent. Both Roger and Pete show what virtuosi they were in their different ways and so does that magnificent Moon/Entwhistle rocket which propelled them.

The material is varied but good. There are great versions of some of their best-known songs of the time plus some very welcome recordings of more obscure album tracks. Things like the cover of Dancing In The Street don't work so well for me, but overall it's a fine collection.

The sound quality is pretty good. It's clean and well balanced, although Entwhistle's bass sounds a bit thin on some of the earliest recordings. The Brian Matthew voiceovers are a little irritating, but that's the way it was done then and I can live with it. Overall this is a very good Who collection with a generous number of tracks and I can recommend it.

A compulsory purchase for Who fans, with well over 70 minutes of great music. There's a bias towards the first two LPs, which is no bad thing as there has always been much more to the Who than "Tommy" or "Who's Next". A couple of very minor quibbles, why two versions of "Substitute" when plenty of other great tracks don't appear at all, and was there no way to eliminate the really irritating voiceovers on many of the intros. The entire intro to "I'm Free" is talked over and it really grates.
