Christmas Comes Early For Who Fans In The U.S.

 

 


 

LIVE AT HULL 2 CD SET

 

QUADROPHENIA: CAN YOU SEE THE REAL ME? THE DOCUMENTARY

 

THE STUDIO ALBUMS VINYL BOXSET

 

Christmas has come early for fans of The Who in the U.S. with the release of three very special items being released due to overwhelming popular demand.

 

LIVE AT HULL (2 CD SET) – JUST RELEASED

 

 

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’ favorite of the two shows.

 

A small selection of original tracks 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 that 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.”

 

QUADROPHENIA: CAN YOU SEE THE REAL ME? THE DOCUMENTARY  – NOVEMBER 27th (available digitally)


 

In his home studio and revisiting old haunts in Shepherds Bush and Battersea, Pete Townshend opens his heart and his personal archive to revisit ‘the last great album The Who ever made,’ one that took The Who full circle back to their earliest days via the adventures of a pill-popping mod on an epic journey of self-discovery.

 

But in 1973 QUADROPHENIA was an album that almost never was. Beset by money problems, a studio in construction, heroin-taking managers, a lunatic drummer and a culture of heavy drinking, Townshend took on an album that nearly broke him and one that within a year the band had turned their back on and would ignore for nearly three decades.

 

With unseen archive and in-depth interviews from Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Keith Moon, John Entwistle, and those in the studio and behind the lens who made the album and thirty page photo booklet.

 

Contributors include: Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, Ethan Russell, Ron Nevison, Richard Barnes, Irish Jack Lyons, Bill Curbishley, John Woolf, Howie Edelson, Mark Kermode and Georgiana Steele Waller.

 

THE WHO STUDIO ALBUMS VINYL BOX SET  – DECEMBER 4th 2012

 

 

The third Who release is a limited edition vinyl box set of all eleven Who studio albums. All of the albums have been re-mastered by long time Who associate Jon Astley in 24-96 format on virgin heavyweight vinyl.

 

For this strictly limited edition release, all care has been taken to ensure it looks as good as it sounds. The box itself is a hard, full-color presentation with matte lamination and spot-gloss varnish, while artwork restorations include the TOMMY sleeve with its original 6-panel fold-out and 12-page color booklet, FACE DANCES with its 24” by 24” poster insert and THE WHO SELL OUT with the same 20” by 30” poster as on the original 1967 pressings. QUADROPHENIA has its lavish Pete Townshend and Ethan Russell photo book restored, which at the time cost £10,000 and was shot over two weeks in London, Brighton and Cornwall.

 

The Studio Albums boxset includes:
