Christmas Comes Early For Who Fans

 

LIVE AT HULL

THE STUDIO ALBUMS VINYL BOXSET

MY GENERATION MONO CD

 

ALL RELEASED (IN THE UK) ON WHOVEMBER 19th 2012

 

‘LIVE AT HULL’ TO BE RELEASED FOR THE FIRST TIME

AS A STAND ALONE CD

 

11th October 2012 Christmas has come early for fans of The Who with the release of three very special items being released on November 19th due to overwhelming popular demand.

 

LIVE AT HULL

 

 

Previously only available as part of the long deleted ‘Live At Leeds’ deluxe boxset this is the first time that ‘the connoisseur’s choice’ has been available as a stand-alone double cd. The live album from the band’s performance in Hull on February 15, 1970, the night after the Leeds gig was recorded, has long been regarded as the fans favourite of the two shows.

 

A small selection of original tapes for the Hull show were missing bassist John Entwistle’s contribution due to a recording mix-up, but for this edition the parts have been added from the Leeds show.

 

Pete Townshend from his autobiography ‘Who I Am’

 

“I had a few weeks free from engagements to mix and edit the two new live tapes, but it only took me two days. The first reel I put up, from Hull, had no bass guitar track. If I had listened to the subsequent reels I would have discovered that this was only an intermittent problem, that more and more of John’s playing had been safely recorded as the show went on. But it seemed such a tricky problem to fix that I moved quickly on to Leeds”.

 

Who front man Roger Daltrey 
”Hull was a better gig than Leeds, I remember it like it was yesterday, although in retrospect ‘Live At Hull’ doesn’t really trip off the tongue!”

 

The double cd package will come with an all-new 6-panel digi-pak based on the tapes recorded by soundman Bob Pridden on the night.

 

One of The Who’s managers at the time, Kit Lambert later commented “In those days live albums were always Live At the Coliseum In Rome or Live At The Palladium, Hollywood Bowl, etc. I said ‘live’ isn’t really like that. Touring is much seedier. So why didn’t we think of Live At Grimsby or Live At Mud-on-Sea. I looked at the schedule and said: ‘You’re in Hull on Wednesday and Leeds on Thursday [sic] so it’s going to be Live At Hull or Live At Leeds”

MY GENERATION MONO CD

 

 

 

 

Last but certainly not least is the remastered Mono single disc cd / download version of The Who’s debut album ‘My Generation’ originally released at the tail end of 1965.

 

Something of a holy grail for Who aficionados this original Mono version is as close as possible to how the band envisaged it sounding in the studio and contains overdubs which were lost in previous Stereo masterings.

Yes I would love to see more Live material from the ‘golden’ era of 1969-1976 too, in particular the now legendary Swansea football ground gig from June 1976. I know we have had bits from it on the boxed set, ‘By Numbers’ and ‘Backstage pass’ but I would LOVE the complete show to see the light of day. not only was it brilliant performance, it was also Moonies last proper UK gig. it also happened to be MY first ever concert and it remains the best gig i’ve ever seen by ANY band!

I wish The Who would relaese some of the concerts of Quadrophenia from the early 70″s,or any live material from 72-76.
