THE WHO RELEASES 'MY GENERATION' SUPER DELUXE EDITION
In the half century since it’s original release, The Who’s debut album ‘My Generation’ has lost none of it’s raw visceral power and still stands as the ultimate musical declaration of teenage rebellion. The title track alone has been covered innumerable times by the likes of Oasis, Green Day, Patti Smith, Bill Joel, Alice Cooper and Iron Maiden amongst many more.
The new, spectacular 79-track five disc super-deluxe edition of ‘My Generation’ features unheard songs as well as unreleased demos, unreleased alternate mixes, new remasters and a stereo remix which was created using new overdubs from Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. For this mix Pete used exactly the same guitars and amps as the original album and Roger used same type of microphone.
The super deluxe edition also features a stunning 80-page colour book with many rare and unseen period photos, candid and insightful new notes from Pete Townshend and period memorabilia.
Of the super deluxe box set Pete Townshend commented “Gathering these demos for this collection has been enjoyable; it’s wonderful for me to have these tapes made fifty-two years ago to listen to. I hope you enjoy them. They have a naiveté and innocence, a simplicity and directness, and an ingenuousness that reveals me as a young man struggling to keep up with the more mature and developed men around me. What an incredible group of strong, talented, young and engaging men they were!”
