THE WHO

Polydor

Twenty representative cuts by The Who
dating from the famous concert-opener I
Can’t Explain (1964) to You Better You Bet
(1981) with the Faces’ Kenney Jones who
replaced the late Keith Moon on traps. The
remasteting has not Interfered with the
manic, anarchic tension created by Moon,
Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and John
Entwistle whose bass playing provided a
profound anchor and a touch ot daring.
Meaty, the compilers have ignored material
from the ordinary studio albums Face .
Dances (1981) and It’s Hard(1982). All the
powerful ’603 classics are featured,
including the silly Boris The Spider.
