Customer Review

on 10 February 2010
You could easily dismiss this release as just another case of the Who cashing in again by re-releasing a greatest hits album for the umpteenth time, but the saving grace is the second disc which has an excellent selection of live tracks recorded over the years from an early rendition of My Generation recorded for the BBC in 1965 right up until 2007. The fabulous performance by Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend of the most recent song, Man In A Purple Dress (from the band`s last album to date Endless Wire)is worth the price of admission alone. There are also particularly good performances of Pinball Wizard,I`m Free and Squeeze Box from the legendary Swansea 1976 gig. The studio CD has most of the key tracks released by the band in chronological order starting with the groups first single recorded in 1964 I Can`t Explain right up to It`s Not Enough (from the aforementioned Endless Wire album.
Two slight moans, the booklet contains a glaring error. It wrongly states that the fiddle playing on Baba O`Reilly was by Dave Swarbrick but anyone with any knowledgr of The Who knows it was by Dave Arbus, from East of Eden. Also the printing of the dates and locations of the live tracks is so small that you need a telescope to read them. Apart from thes two minor things this is an excellent release from one of the best groups ever but make sure you buy the 2 disc, not the single disc version.
