Just been having a trip down memory lane and thought i would share.

Any fans of The Who during their early years ? I thought during that period the produced some great music, which was kind of unique for it's day.

The band with arguably the greatest bass guitarist and drummer in rock history.

Feel free to add if this is your thing.

Not quite that long ago!

Saw them play round about 82/3, can't quite remember just now. Keith had gone by then but they were just as energetic and very loud!!!
Was an alleged farewell tour. Hehehe.

Who's Next was my favourite album by them.

Won't get fooled again.

Gosh, such a long time ago.. The Who as opposed to The Guess Who.. They were on a road less traveled, proper FM Entertainer musicians.

Fond memories of riding around in my friends Mercury Montego...black low to the ground. Listening to The Who on 8 track player and taking part in the consuming of illicit substances. Smoked more left handed cigarettes listening to The Who & RUSH than any other groups....Favorite Who song.....However much I booze....Favorite RUSH song......all of them.

Yes , I think they were far better in the early days.



Shame they were mods.

I discovered them back when I was about to enter the 10th grade. While I was thumbing around the cd section in my local Walmart, I came across the album Tommy. I don't know what made me purchase that album as I had never heard their material except for Baba O'Riley, but I'm so glad I did. Wonderful group!

Same! I own 3 different versions of The Who Sell Out. If you don't own it already, you should really get the deluxe edition 2 CD set. It includes a lot of bonus tracks and the original mono release!

As long as my version has Melancholia I'm happy.

It's such a strong entity considering it doesn't boast any hit material.

It's just a seamless flow of awesomeness

Totally understand!
I think they should release a Who compilation just titled 'Who '67' with most of the material they made in that year. I'd buy it, anyway. Need a reason to buy more Who albums.

During the early seventies...I saw the Who --- live --- at Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, Maryland. Led Zeppelin came on to play first that night.
Later...after the Who came on --- I knew they were going to do there destruction act, when I saw Pete Townsend switch guitars near the end of they're gig. Roger Daltrey started swinging his microphone around by the cable [that's when the gatecrashers torn down the chain link fences], Keith Moon threw one of his drums over his head, and Pete Townsend went to work on destroying his painted electric guitar, by swinging it against the wooden stage floor ---- While John Entwistle --- RIP --- calmly played on.

Pete caused $10,000 worth of damage to the wooden stage floor, and they were banned from ever playing there again.

It was one of the greatest rock concerts that I ever saw.
