Item specifics

 Up for sale a Polydor re issue of The Who's 1967 album Sell Out. Great album full of great songs. In my opinion the Who were always patchy as an albums band with the exception of Live at Leeds of course.
My Generation is pretty good but A Quick One suffers from a generally horrible production while I've always found Tommy to be rather heavy going. Sell Out comes closest to the most consistently entertaining lp they made and one of Townshend's most fully realised concepts, making the album sound like a pirate radio station broadcast and acting as a kind of homage/parody in equal measure. The radio station concept kind of fades away towards the end of the record and we get a rather odd preview of some of the musical motifs that would feature on their follow up lp Tommy with the closing track Rael, which sounds as if it has been flown in from another project which I suppose it was.....What makes Sell Out so good is the strength of the songs. Armenia City In the Sky is a pretty hefty psychedelic opener, Mary Anne With The Shaky Hands, Oderono, Our Love Was, I Can See For Miles, I Can't Reach You and Tattoo are all great mod rock/psych/pop tunes. After this the Who would relinquish their classic run of singles and songs in this style and transform themselves in to the heavier rock band that would produce the jaw dropping Live At Leeds.....

This copy is a stereo re issue individually numbered, I think it's an eighties pressing. It's been my copy for years and is a decent sounding pressing. I upgraded to an original recently but if you're just investigating this lp for the first time and want a decent copy without having to cough up for an original you could do a lot worse than this copy.

Many thanks.
