Customer Review

on 23 June 2006
John Entwistle was THE WHO s' most accomplished musician but he happened to be in a band with a musical phenomenom as Pete Townshend is. It is clear that John Entwistle has a similar position, musical legacy and personal history as George Harrison in the Beatles, John Paul Jones in Led Zeppelin, Dave Davies in the Kinks, Jack Bruce in Cream, Bill Wyman in the Rolling Stones and many other musicians classified as the "Quiet Ones" in rock.

He recorded some great forgotten albums mainly their first two: "Smash your head against the Wall" and "Wistle Rymes".

He also recorded a couple of not so good albums such as: "Mad Dog" and "The Rock". And also recorded some good or fair albums such as: "Rigor Mortis", "Too Late the Hero" and "Music for Vampyres". This collection covers all his solo albums including one very few fans know about, released in 1975 a little after the "Tommy" soundtrack and this is the "Flash Fearless" cd. The interesting thing about this one (Flash Fearless), is that Keith Moon and Kenny Jones played with John.

There are some other John Entwistle solo recordings that are not included such as his extraordinary vocal take on "Cousin Kevin" with the London Symphony Orchesta (from the ODE CD OF TOMMY), his solo version of "Boris the Spider" with Ringo Starr s' band and some recordins he did live with Alan Parsons, Ann Wilson and many others for a tour performing Beatles and Rolling Stones songs. Also unrealeased music he did on a tour to Japan with Keith Emerson and others and many demos he did for the Who to record for their forthcoming new cd.

The best songs here are the ones for Wistle Rymes: Apron Strings, Who Cares, Think it Over and also the title track from Too Late the Hero.

This collection is a good start for any old or new Who fan.
